New Purpose is a private, for-profit organization that is dedicated to alcohol and other drug treatment services to individuals that struggle with substance use disorders. New Purpose operates in the state of Tennessee. New Purpose provides treatment services to adults ages 18 years old and older. This facility provides partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient services including vivitrol injections. New Purpose’s mission is to help those struggling with addiction find new purpose in life by treating their disease. We believe that addiction can be treated in an effective way so that individuals can find new purpose in life and stay abstinent from drugs and alcohol. We direct clients to find new purpose and establish a solid foundation for their lives, individuals must surrender, recognize, and accept that they have a problem. New Purpose strives to not only assist with this recognition but to help individuals understand that drugs and alcohol are a symptom of their underlining problems. It is important for individuals to understand that other changes in behaviors, attitudes, values, beliefs, and lifestyle need to be addressed and changed to have the best success in their recovery. These changes are explored within the individual’s cultural and ethical worldview. New Purpose utilizes the 12-step philosophy and fellowship as a large part of the program due to its proven success in recovery. This program provides recovery principles, tools, and education to clients in a supportive and structured environment. Within this environment, clients will be able to be assisted to shift their understanding from reliance on chemicals to self-reliance. This teaches our clients that they are not responsible for the disease of addiction, but they are responsible for making adequate changes in their lives to stay clean and sober. Clients will be assessed to determine the proper level of care prior to admission. If the client is found appropriate for IOP or OP level of care, they will be admitted into our program immediately. The admission process begins with a prescreen of a client within a clinical meeting with New Purpose staff. An initial assessment will also be conducted with the client which will allow staff to determine the correct level of care. This assessment will evaluate the client’s medical necessity. If prospective client does not meet for IOP or OP level of care due to medical necessity, New Purpose will refer this individual to the appropriate facility or program. If client is admitted into our program, this individual will continue their assessment with their assigned primary therapist to complete a biopsychosocial assessment. Every individual’s needs, e.g. financial, legal, etc. will be responded to by staff. Initial and ongoing assessments and evaluations provide a basis for formulating individualized treatment plans as well as identifying the need for additional services. The development of the individual treatment plan takes into consideration of the client’s lifestyle, ethnic and cultural background, strengths, needs, abilities, preferences, and the support systems that will enhance the client’s recovery process. Individual treatment plans as mentioned previously are designed to reduce or eliminate emotional, behavioral, and situational obstacles to recovery, enhance skills and abilities to become a self-sufficient and healthy member of society. Each client’s progress and needs are continuously assessed and evaluated throughout the treatment process. Treatment, continuing care, and discharge plans will be modified throughout their time in the program. Clients are directed in addressing key issues that are critical to their recovery plan through an integrated approach by using evidence-based counseling methods in combination with the 12 step program/model. Other treatment strategies include but not limited to: group and individual counseling, psycho-education, relapse prevention training, life skills, communications skills, parenting skills, anger management, etc. A combination of supportive, insight oriented, motivational interviewing, and cognitive/dialectical behavioral approaches are utilized based on the individual client. Client’s families are engaged through individual family sessions and family groups as part of our program. The multi-disciplinary treatment team is comprised of facility managers, credentialed addictions specialists, and licensed professionals such as clinical social workers and master’s level clinicians. Many staff are in recovery and provide the clients with their experience, strength, and hope in our program. This helps the clinicians and clients to develop trust and allow bonds and connections to be formed for better success in recovery and outlook on cultural and psychological barriers. Staff members are dedicated to present themselves as positive role models with the understanding of cultural diversities. Weekly treatment team meetings will be conducted to evaluate client progress, treatment planning recommendations, utilization review, and care. The process of these services includes but are not limited to the following: • Therapist conducts individual counseling/therapy sessions based on the client’s program level of care, needs, and/or lengths of treatment. The client’s progress through the treatment program will determine the frequency of sessions. Individual sessions are based on the treatment goals and objectives stated in the client’s individualized treatment plan. • Group therapy will be presented as a moralizing approach to clients that will consist of a lecture, processing, and sharing. These groups are formulated from a collection of evidenced based curriculums. Clients may be shown recovery-based videos to accompany the group facilitator’s lecture/topic. Group participation is mandatory in this program. Additional handouts and writing assignments may be included upon the group facilitator’s discretion. • Group therapy/Process (Counseling) Groups are led by a licensed and/or master’s level clinician such as a social worker, professional counselor, etc. which work toward client treatment plan goals. Clients can identify with their emotions/feelings in this group and be educated on how to implement healthy coping skills. • Clients are subject to random urinary drug screens to monitor abstinence as well keep accountability in their recovery. Clients will be required to take a urinary drug screen upon admission. The frequency of testing after admission is at the discretion of the therapist while in the program. Upon admission, releases must be signed by the client for staff to be able to submit UDS results to referring entities such as, DCS, probation officers, parole officers, etc. A positive drug screen can result in discharge depending on individual circumstances. If discharge is not required, client will have to follow all recommendations from therapist such as intensifying relapse prevention, relapse autopsy, identify triggers and ques, increasing drug screens, and require additional 12 step program meetings. • 12 step meetings/celebrate recovery meetings and sponsorship are required by clients to be able to meet the minimum attendance requirements as outlined in the client’s treatment plan and treatment level. When the client is ready to complete the program, client is projected to have obtained awareness and acceptance of their addiction and commitment to recovery. Client will be able to understand and implement recovery concepts into their lives. Client will be able to identify their strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. Other evidence of one’s readiness for completion include: • recognizing the severity of the client’s dependence • an understanding that their lives have become unmanageable due to their addiction • a relapse prevention plan has been developed and processed with therapist • completed all goals, objectives, and interventions in treatment plan • continuing care plan has been developed • understands their diagnosis and how to implement healthy coping skills effectively • how addiction and mental health coincide with one another Once a client has completed this program, client is strongly encouraged to participate in New Purpose Aftercare Program. This aftercare program will be offered to all alumni clients at no cost.
