Taking the Next Step

Abstinence is a challenging and precious accomplishment; however, here at Sober Souls we recognize that sobriety is not synonymous with recovery. We believe that for an individual to remain sober, he or she must actively build upon the foundation of abstinence with a comprehensive program of rehabilitation which we provide through our large referral base.

Outpatient services are often the next step in the continuum of recovery for individuals who have successfully completed their medical detoxification and/or inpatient program. Individuals who participate in an outpatient program have an increased likelihood of successfully achieving an alcohol and drug free life.

A Personalized Treatment Plan

Sober Souls has relationships with outside providers for Outpatient Treatment where an individualized program of recovery, tailored to fit each patient’s personality, lifestyle and profession will be established. The programs we refer our clients to are fully licensed individual practitioners and or State licensed treatment facilities that provide outpatient drug and alcohol services.  These services are aimed at identifying the underlying emotional and psychological issues related to addiction, and helping the client implement a skill set designed to assist them in living a healthy and alcohol/drug free lifestyle. By developing cognitive and behavioral mechanisms to cope with life’s difficulties and curb maladaptive behaviors (such as impulsively turning to drugs and/or alcohol), clients that chose to enroll in any of our outside provided sources for outpatient treatment services have a significantly reduced chance of relapse. Moreover, the programs are designed to educate patients on the disease model of addiction, hold them accountable for their actions, and reinforce behaviors that actively produce positive change.

As a supplement to a safe, sober environment, outpatient treatment is a vital component in initiating a “stage of change” in the recovering addict. Our outside referrals for Outpatient Treatment services have the experience and expertise needed to help you recover from your addiction and develop a healthy lifestyle.  Upon request, we will provide any client of Sober Souls a number of different Outpatient services to choose from and the client has the freedom to make their personal choice as to which program they feel best suits their needs.
