SandyPines Residential Treatment Center provides children and adolescents the opportunity to confront their personal issues, engage in a problem solving process, test new behaviors and formulate a more constructive approach to life’s challenges. Every effort is made to create a safe and supportive environment in which to build on personal strengths and challenge destructive behaviors.
A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism. The method was adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs.
Adolescent programs vary at each facility. The facility has a program for clients ages 12-17.
Dual Diagnosis patients are those who find themselves battling two very distinct and two very different challenges simultaneously. On one hand there is the challenge of chemical or alcohol dependence, itself a very serious condition, and on the other, a severe mental disorder which, more often than not, is being fed and further complicated by the addiction. Unsurprisingly, these patients respond differently to treatment than those with a single diagnosis, and may be considered high-risk depending on the situation.
Family can be a huge factor in addiction, and family inclusive treatment invites the whole family into the process with phone calls and sometimes bringing them into the facility.
Programs that also treat Anxiety disorders, Disruptive behavioral disorders, Dissociative disorders, Emotional disorders, Pervasive developmental disorders
In Patient, or Residential, drug treatment requires that the person receiving treatment for addictions or substance abuse, residing in a facility longer than 4 weeks usually 90 days to a year.
