Community involvement is a critical bridge to change and plays a powerful role as part of social model programs. A peer-oriented process of healing, the social model emphasizes gaining experiential knowledge, developing connections within a positive group, and using a supportive environment to encourage abstinence.
The goal of social model programming at Newsong Recovery is to help residents develop a strong sense of ownership of their recovery and responsibility to their peers and to encourage them to participate in the community via volunteerism and social outings.
Underpinned by the mutual-help principles of 12-step fellowships, the social model recognizes that addiction affects not only the individual but also the community at large. The social model programs at Newsong Recovery promote health and well-being by fostering:
● Experiential learning
● Leadership development
● The continuum of recovery
● A social climate conducive to recovery
● A homelike, rather than institutional, atmosphere
● A more holistic lifestyle
To create a successful outcome, social model programs will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s social model program is closely supervised by a team of professionals with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the social system, not just the individual with substance use disorder.
At Newsong Recovery, your residential treatment will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective social model programs based on your substance use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems as well as your age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
Individuals progress through treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. Generally, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness. Treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
Newsong Recovery offers complimentary consultations with our team of board-certified addiction specialists. To learn more about our comprehensive treatment program and our individualized approach to whole-person recovery, call us now.
