Starting on the road to recovery can be
a scary experience.
However, it is also very brave and wise
I commend you for taking this first step.
To be honest, recovery is a process
and it takes hard work.
Often taking more time than we thought it would.
The good news is that,
treatment does help!
Over time, you will notice differences
and begin to welcome the process.
Learning healthier ways to cope with struggles
Gaining insight to the circumstances
that now baffle you.
Reaching the goals you set for yourself.
Perhaps you are not sure you need treatment
Maybe someone else is prompting you to get help.
You may have several questions.
You will have time to ask these questions
during the first phase of treatment.
You may wonder what to expect during treatment.
I hope the outline below helps
you understand the process better.
Treatment is different for everyone involved.
There are many factors that go into writing a treatment plan. Treatment has several phases. This is a general and basic outline. A more thorough and individualized plan will be determined once you have been in treatment long enough to decide the best pathway.
Phase 1: Intake
Before the first session
Schedule an appointment
Complete online paperwork and documents
Therapist reviews paperwork
Phase 2: Assessment
Sessions 1 - 3
(also an ongoing part of treatment)
Coming to therapy is much like going to the doctor. I have a waiting room and I will invite you into my office when it is time to start.
You may feel anxious or uncomfortable, this is normal.
Some clients prefer to make small talk in the beginning. Others feel like they just want to talk and get it all out. Either way is very normal.
When you are ready we will start the assessment.
The assessment is designed to help us both understand the extent and nature of your issues.
I will answer any questions you may have.
We will define your goals for therapy together.
And discuss appropriate individualized options for treatment.
Phase 3: Treatment
Length depends on many factors
The nature of your issues
History of treatment
Goals for treatment
Readiness for treatment
Who is involved in treatment with you
Other factors unique to you
More often than not, clients enter treatment and decide on a specific treatment avenue; however, it is very normal for that plan to change during the therapeutic process as goals are met or redefined.
I will check-in with you often from the beginning to ensure we are staying on track with what you want to accomplish.
