Addiction Intensive Jump Start Program

Addiction Intensive Jump Start Program

Addiction definition: an unhealthy relationship with a substance or event.

Rehab for 30, 60, or 90 days is just impossible and not affordable for many clients. Rehab in many cases is recommended, however if that is not possible a 6-day intensive program with proper follow through and support can jump start your recovery and help prevent you from relapse.

In rehab settings the majority of your time is spent in group formats. Our intensives are custom design for your specific needs. All time spent is one on one with a counselor.

It may be alcohol, drugs, porn, sex, Facebook, gambling, eating, exercise or a myriad of other things that can fall into this definition. You use them to cope, improve mood, meet a need, and you can develop obsessive and compulsive behaviors.

Addiction begins at a very basic level with you seeking to change your mood. Some people may abuse substances or events during painful seasons, and then turn back to healthier ways of meeting needs. However, if a pattern is formed you are susceptible to developing an addictive relationship with a substance or event.

No matter what type of addiction, abuse progresses with an unhealthy relationship to the substance or event, creating faulty thought patterns, core beliefs, and life skills. The abuser then becomes dependent and believes their needs are being met by the substance.

Our intensives are custom designed for you, identifying what you as an individual need for emotional health and freedom from addictive patterns. This intensive will come with a custom created book filled with the tools that you are missing and focusing only on the areas that you specifically need.

Our 1, 2, or 3 day Intensive is designed to give you a Jump Start to overcome addiction, find its roots and begin the path to operating in new thinking and life skills.

Spending 8 – 24 hours in a 1 – 3 day intensive program is like a Jump Start of 2 – 6 months of counseling to rebuild the way you think and the choices that you make. It provides you with deep understanding, a road map of how to continue to move forward, and a toolbox filled with tools and new skills to apply.

A healthy foundation includes understanding your temperament design, development, thinking and core beliefs, bonding patterns, meeting your needs in healthy and unhealthy ways, life and relationship skills, and relapse recovery. We deal with all the issues from the root system up. Our intensive is not generic, focuses on your specific issues and helps you become the overcomer that you are called to be.

You will gain insight and understanding to why and how you operate in addictive thinking and behaviors. You will identify your triggers, and core beliefs that drive your behaviors. You will receive a Jump Start into the process of developing skills to make your life flourish and walk in firm recovery.
