Primary Residential Treatment:
During this phase of treatment the client receives intensive treatment for addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. This includes goal-oriented treatment planning, individual and group counseling, art, therapy, psychological testing and evaluation, educational lectures, parenting, GED program, and community 12 step meetings.
Secondary Residential Treatment
Once clients have completed primary treatment goals, they may choose to transition into our secondary residential program, which continues with intensive group and individual therapy, psychoeducational lectures, and weekly assessment. However, residents will now begin focusing on vocational goals, interests, and skill building. Residents will be able to begin job searching and working, while still living in a safe and structured environment.
This phase of treatment provides clients with the opportunity to live in a less structured environment as they begin to practice a daily recovery program which includes employment, attending school, or volunteer work. Individuals in transitional living are required to work, attend meetings, and complete our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which consists of three group sessions and one individual therapy session weekly.
Recovery Support Services:
After completion of residential treatment, the client’s new skills in sobriety are supported through an Aftercare Program which is held weekly in group format, as well as individual and family sessions as needed. Recovery support staff can assist with housing, employment, and educational referrals as well.
Medication Assisted Treatment:
The “opioid epidemic;” is a phrase that could seem like hyperbole were it not supported by numbers that themselves are grandiose. Mississippi is one of the top five states in which opioid prescriptions are written and has an increasing amount of illicit opioids such as heroin and fentanyl coming into our state.
Recovery House is a recipient of the State Opioid Response (SOR) Grant and has support for individuals struggling with opioid use; particularly utilizing Medication Assisted Treatment or MAT. The most frequent medications used for Opioid Use Disorders are Naltrexone and Buprenorphine (Suboxone). Medications used in MAT are prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes counseling and participation in social support programs. The MAT program at PACH is a multifaceted program that is individualized for each participant. Individuals receiving MAT are required to attend other services as determined by the PACH clinical team; which includes therapists, a registered nurse care manager, a psychiatrist, nurse practitioners, and peer supports. Programs that are frequently paired with MAT are Intensive Outpatient and our Residential Treatment Programs as well as Recovery Support Services. Engagement with these programs are required for individuals to remain in good standing with MAT.
