ABOUT RECOVER INTEGRITY
Located in Los Angeles, Recover Integrity offers long-term luxury residential treatment for men struggling with addiction, co-occurring mental health disorders, and other issues such as compulsive gambling. In addition, the facility offers outpatient-based programs and sober living facilities.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Recover Integrity has developed a proprietary diagnostic tool called the Developmental Integrity Profile (DIP), which involves an initial assessment and a follow-up assessment 45 days into treatment to track progress and recalibrate treatment.
Recover Integrity's programming combines the 12-step model of recovery, spirituality, and range of clinical and holistic approaches. Treatment is broken into four phases, each of which lasts approximately 30 days. In phase one, individuals attend full days of treatment that focuses on safety, acclimatization, developing routines, and bonding with the community.
Phase two, which can be a full-day or half-day course, focuses on developing a recovery identity, finding a sponsor, and working the steps or an alternative pathway. In phase three, treatment hours taper further, and clients begin to work or pursue larger life goals. In phase four, clients work a minimum of 30 hours a week or attend school and consolidate what they’ve learned.
Clients participate in four group therapy sessions a day, and at least two individual therapy sessions a week. Clients also attend daily 12-step meetings or alternatives to 12-step meetings, such as SMART Recovery, as well as participate in weekly neurofeedback sessions. If necessary, clients can also receive psychiatric monitoring and weekly psychiatric assessments.
Holistic programming includes meditation, spiritual counseling, health and fitness groups, and gym visits. The center also provides vocational, educational, and transitional counseling.
Family are engaged in the recovery process through weekly check-ins and coaching/support sessions. Continuing care options include weekly individual and group therapy, case management, and urinalysis monitoring.
According to the facility’s website, the treatment team includes psychologists, psychiatrists, certified alcohol and drug counselors, marriage and family therapists, spiritual counselors, interventionists, mindfulness meditation counselors, vocational counselors, and case managers.
