An extremely high percentage of individuals relapse after the completion of a structured traditional treatment program. This is not necessarily an indication of failure, but rather it signifies the need for a completely alternative treatment plan tailored to the client’s needs.
At Tailored Transitions, we believe that relapse prevention is a skill set that is best learned, and implemented, through a person-in-environment approach (PIE). PIE is based on a model developed by social workers in attempts to move away from the dual construct of either being completely person-focused or environment-focused. PIE bridges the gap and examines the interaction between the person and his/her environment while specifically addressing problems and highlighting strengths in categories such as:
- Social Roles in Relationships with Others
- Social Environment
- Mental Health
- Physical Health
We believe that addressing these issues involves developing skills comprised of simple, and yet challenging techniques.
Our philosophy is based on the belief that people need support with the implementation of these tools as issues arise in day-to-day life. In early recovery, it is common for individuals to be blinded by over-whelming cravings. In such moments, those with addiction issues tend to abandon their tools and resort back to self-destructive coping mechanisms. It is in these vulnerable moments that our staff is there, acting as a beacon, and lighting up a path to extended recovery.
Whereas most rehabilitation programs focus solely on substance abuse, Tailored Transitions believes that addiction manifests itself in a wide variety of areas including, but not limited to: alcohol, illegal narcotics, pharmaceuticals, sex, pornography, money, food, gambling, internet/technology, cutting…and many others.
Some struggle with a variety of these simultaneously, and others are challenged with only one at a time. We have recognized that when one addiction subsides, another tends to quickly take its’ place.
Our philosophy is based on the belief that addiction will continue in one form or another until the issue is resolved at its’ core.
