How it works:
8 Dimensions of Wellness
Addiction reaches into the very core of its victims and drains them of purpose, power and joy. We work to reverse that and bring our clients to live fulfilling and service driven lives so they can get and stay sober with a purpose. We do this using our 8 Dimensions Of Infinite Wellness approach. It works through holistically integrating recovery in every level of our client's lives. With this approach our clients don’t just get sober, they become better all around. This, combined with the proven Twelve Step method, helps our clients lead fulfilling lives with the aid of a holistic plan to help them maintain sobriety.
Emotional Wellness is the first dimension. Here clients are guided to develop key qualities to re-envision their lives in a better light. This includes learning optimism, trust, self-confidence, and determination. Why?
Because addiction is often a symptom of deeper unresolved emotional traumas. Through developing Emotional Wellness clients can escape self-destructive patterns and get treatment for un or mis-diagnosed psychological disorders.
Environmental Wellness is where client’s learn how to positively interact with their environment. They do this through developing a proactive plan to accept and deal with things outside their control.
This isn’t about making clients comfortable in a non-care setting-although it does. It’s about helping clients thrive no matter their environment. You can’t control the real world. Acknowledging this in treatment lets clients access emotions and issues so healing can take place. Healing happens through clients bonding with peers, developing rapport with staff, and increasing endorphins and dopamine levels in the brains without chemicals, drugs, or alcohol.
Therapy can be as simple as a relaxing day at Lake Travis, enjoying an art or dance class, or interacting with therapy animals. Therapeutic activities guide clients to align with the everyday pleasures of the world around them and produce a positive and proactive outlook on the world.
Recovery is a physical, social, and spiritual process. That’s why we focus on developing Spiritual Wellness by helping you connect with the things that give you meaning. This isn’t a faith based practice but instead a journey to cultivate spiritual curiosity with the world at large.
Spiritual Wellness is developed through meditation, mindfulness practices, and spiritual retreat. For specific interest we offer tracks for Gospel Recovery, the Zen of Recovery, or the proven Twelve Steps method.
Substance abuse damages the body. We work to repair that through Physical Wellness. This isn’t about looking fit. It’s about developing a consistent practice of discipline and determination that increase self-esteem and self-worth. Both keys to maintaining long-term recovery and a high quality of life.
We help you develop Physical Wellness by creating personally tailored nutrition and wellness plans to aid in your addiction recovery. Our Physical Wellness programs develop focus in three areas: nutrition, fitness, and ongoing wellness.
One of the biggest barriers in recovery is personal finance. Substance abuse and its legal fees often put our clients in a financially insecure position. These often are the worst relapse triggers for addicts. Through Financial Wellness we address these issues and pre-empt re-use by helping our clients develop a plan to become financially ‘well’.
Financial Wellness does this through counseling that focuses on financial issues such as personal finance, how to overcome compulsive spending, how to manage (or get) student loans, planning for a financially safe future, dealing with gambling related problems, and making any financial amends during recovery.
With Occupational Wellness we help our clients develop the tools they need to maintain healthy ongoing relationships with their job or school. We do this by coaching them on proactive practices to deal with the stress these situations produce.
Alongside learning tools to positively deal with stress, Occupational Wellness also guides you with counseling to find and apply for jobs. We help develop interview skills through mock interviews and work with clients to apply for school and financial aid.
It’s not enough to just detox from drugs or alcohol. That is why we promote Intellectual Wellness. Through it we stimulate interest in the larger world by developing curiosity with reading, writing, art, engaging in ongoing education, enjoying media, and following creative pursuits.
Through exploring their passions our clients discover new things about themselves that create a positive new identity free of substance abuse.
