Momentum Recovery offers three distinct phases of recovery, and we encourage our clients to work their way through each phase of the program as it is proven to have the greatest impact on their long term recovery.
Our program begins with extended care. Extended care clients at Momentum Recovery live in a private residence, and have a full-time recovery coach on site at all times. Meetings and group sessions are a big part of our Extended Care program, with most clients attending at least one meeting or group session per day. Both individual and group therapy are vitally important in the extended care program. Other tasks that our clients engage in during extended care include finding employment or enrolling in school. Our goal with extended care is to give our clients a safe and nurturing environment, while also providing them with the freedom and skills to prepare for life in the community.
After a client complete the initial extended care portion of our program, they move into one of our sober living residences. Our Sober Living Condos are located in the middle of Wilmington, giving our clients more exposure to the greater community while still offering the structure needed in early recovery. The sober living residences still have an onsite recovery coach, but residents are given the opportunity to experience increased autonomy. Our Sober Living clients attend class, work, and have other commitments within the community. Although the program requirements are reduced, clients continue to attend therapeutic groups and life-skills classes several times a week.
After our clients complete extended care and sober living, they transition to the last phase of our program, Change Management, which can last several months, depending on the needs of the client, and is the last stop before our clients take the final step to complete independence. During the Change Management phase, clients live completely independently in a place of their choice. They continue to work with their therapist and case manager, will be drug tested weekly, and they are free to attend as many group therapy sessions as they want. We require they remain engaged in the recovery community, and they are encouraged to stay active in the experiential activities that so many of our clients enjoy.
