ABOUT OUR SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM
THE dohi TEAM
The skills and knowledge of our team of specialists, trained in Naturopathic Medicine, Health Psychology, Rehabilitation, and Addiction Counseling are at the cutting edge in holistic therapies with the understanding of the link between the mind, body, and spirit. Our specialists work to meet the individual on his or her initial level, then design a personalized plan for a journey toward total life transformation.
THE WELLNESS PLAN
Our approach to addiction treatment and co-occurring disorders is based on decades of clinical and scientific research, time-tested methodologies, as well as ancient healing methods. We pride ourselves in the support and services we offer to those who struggle with addiction by providing a structure in which they can be successful in recovering and improving their overall well-being.
THE dohi CURRICULUM
We include Mindfullness-based cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and the stages of change model which have been developed from evidence-based practices. These models combined with coaching for well-being provide us with an engaging, fresh, and interactive approach to improving well-being and transforming lives. To offer a truly holistic program of an integration of treatments, we incorporate the best drug-free practices for addiction and mental health with the vital fundamentals of body, mind and spirit wellness.
Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality care while maintaining a comfortable and soothing environment, putting emphasis on the individual rather than the disease label. We tailor our approach to each client by identifying his or her particular needs from which we create specific individualized plans. We utilize reliable assessment measures to meet requirements and to provide an accurate starting point on the path to wellness.
MEETINGS AND PARTICIPATION
Clients attend support group meetings several times a week and weekly community meetings, in addition to the individual therapy sessions and group sessions at dohi Center. This ensures each client is proactive in attaining for themselves the most therapeutic benefits possible. Each client is empowered to be well.
Several psycho-educational classes are offered, emphasizing the evidenced-based treatment modalities of Mindfulness Meditation, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Stages of Change, Community Therapy Model, and Systems Thinking.
Our classes offer clients the opportunity to assess their current situations, clearly define goals and develop necessary coping skills and strategies. In addition to these classes, clients may participate in life skills classes, wellness groups, and meditation and fitness groups. Our clients are offered the opportunity to learn how to implement a natural lifestyle in nutrition and behaviors.
Clients receive at least 1 individual therapy session per week with their primary therapist. Sessions are provided to meet the requirements and individual needs of each client.
Facilitated by our staff, clients have the opportunity to explore issues and process their efforts in recovering and improving well-being in a safe, peer-supported atmosphere.
One or more family therapy sessions are offered during a client’s treatment. The purpose is to include important people in the treatment process, such as a significant other, child, parent, sibling, friend or employer. This program is educational and therapeutic with respect to helping loved ones understand the process of chemical dependency and how to implement healthy coping strategies — especially when there are feelings of anxiety or fear, or a crisis arises.
Chances for improving well-being and recovery are increased by family participation, and because of this, we ask all clients to encourage family members and/or loved ones to take part. In addition, most of the activities our clients participate in are beneficial to everyone’s health and well-being. Insight into working aspects of relationships are discussed, as well as areas where changes may occur.
Recovering from addictions and improving well-being involves a lifelong way of living; each client’s primary therapist and case management team assist in developing a continuing care plan. Upon leaving the services at dohi Center for Well-being, clients are empowered with the appropriate contacts and referrals which help in continuing along the road to healing and enjoying better well-being.
