We prefer to ask, “How do you measure success?” If success is total abstinence, not many treatment centers can report perfect results. We focus on the quality of life of our clients in recovery. We don’t define success by zero relapses – we choose to look at how our clients handle life in general after treatment. During treatment, we give our clients insight into their addictive behavior, work on the underlying pain and equip them with coping tools for their lives.
It’s important to note that our relationship with our clients doesn’t end with their treatment at Shades of Hope. Regular post-treatment support meetings and weekly alumni gatherings are always available. If a client does not live near Shades, we will be happy to help them find support groups in their area.
Alternatively, if a client feels close to relapsing, we offer Breaking Free Weekends (2 day intensive workshops). These weekends are especially helpful after particularly stressful events such as death of a loved one or another strong emotional trigger that would otherwise result in a relapse.
