Goals of all levels of treatment programs vary based on such factors as the treatment population, program comprehensiveness, and the program’s philosophy. Lincoln Recovery develops a client’s treatment plan based on a treatment team structure with client involvement and perspective that allows the patient to act as an equal partner. The client-centered approach considers the client’s social, physical, culture, spiritual, environmental, medical and psychological needs.
Although programs differ, all programs attempt to address the following general goals:
- To achieve abstinence
- To foster behavioral changes that support abstinence and a new lifestyle
- To facilitate active participation in community-based support systems (e.g., 12-Step fellowship)
- To assist clients in identifying and addressing a wide range of psychosocial problems (e.g., housing, employment, adherence to probation requirements)
- To assist clients in developing a positive support network
- To improve clients’ problem-solving skills and coping strategies
If insurance covers it and the clients feel they need it, they can extend rehab past 90 days for up to eight additional weeks.
Lincoln Recovery will provide support groups on-campus and clients may have to opportunity to participate in groups in the community.
Groups on-campus include, but not limited to NA, AA, Veterans, Celebrate Recovery, LGBTQ+, and Smart Recovery. These groups are typically for support and led by those in recovery.
