What We Stand For

The Impact treatment philosophy recognizes addiction as a multidimensional disease that requires medical, psychological, and behavioral treatment. Poly-substance Use Disorder, co-occurring disorders, and other psychosocial conditions are the hallmarks of the modern addict. Identifying and assessing the nature and intensity of those conditions is critical in the development of effective treatment strategies. With the right combination of interventions, therapies, and social support, anyone with addiction can abstain from drug and alcohol use for the rest of his or her life.

Our Clinical Model

The baseline treatment approach is the 12-step clinical model, utilizing elements from Narcotics/Alcoholics Anonymous programs within a highly structured therapeutic community. Other evidence-based practices are used throughout the treatment experience to target specific problem areas. Presenting positive values and principles such as integrity, accountability, and willingness, the client is challenged to reconsider the norms and values inherent in the drug culture lifestyle and commit to the positive principles found in recovery.

Our Shared Experience

The Impact treatment environment is sustained by a culturally diverse, professionally qualified clinical team that places high value on the shared experience of addiction. This belief is crucial not only for the development of rapport with our clientele but to provide authentic models of recovery. The staff’s example will show that it is possible to get clean and become happy, productive members of society. Furthermore, with their years of clean time and treatment experience, the staff are able to provide invaluable guidance to newly clean clients on what daily practices maintain long-term recovery.

Working With Addicts

The Impact philosophy embraces the idea that the addict struggles both physically and psychologically from the powerful force of addiction. First, substance use must be interrupted and abstinence maintained for the duration of treatment. During this initial period of clarity, the individual can begin to consider the unmanageability of his or her life. This period, as well, will illuminate whether a co-occurring disorder(s) exists and how it is contributing to the individual’s addiction cycle.

Because substance use is only a symptom of the disease of addiction, the mental health and behavior patterns of the individual must be evaluated thoroughly in order to provide accurate, targeted, and individualized treatment. This will set up the individual for a life free from drugs and alcohol.

No Magical Cure

There is no magical cure for substance use disorder, but there is a path to recovery. Through the Impact program, addiction is being successfully treated by means of a unique style of accountability measures, relationship building lessons, and therapeutic challenges to an individual’s toxic beliefs. Only through a caring and responsive therapeutic setting can these necessary personality changes be achieved.

Who We Help

The residents of Impact are adult men and women who have an admitted chemical dependence, e.g., heroin, cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamine. It has been our experience that substance use is only a symptom. Fear, loneliness, boredom, insecurity, inadequacy, or general inability to cope with reality are among the deeper problems behind substance use disorder. The fact that persons of all social levels are susceptible to addiction is a reality of today’s world. The disease of addiction shows no partiality. Left untreated, it will progressively destroy the individual physically and psychologically. This often results in a life of degradation involving jails, institutions, and death.
