Momentum Recovery offers four distinct phases of recovery, in order that we may be increasingly responsive to the individual needs of our clients. We believe it is important to work with our clients, their families, and any professional referents involved so that we have the opportunity to begin a client’s journey from the most appropriate phase in our program. All of our programming is highly individualized and focused on the cultivation of meaningful relationships and the development of purpose.
The Creek- Primary Treatment
For many of our clients, our program begins with our first phase, The Creek. This is our primary, dural diagnosis treatment program and is the most structured and intensive part of our continuum. This phase is the starting point for our clients that have not completed a primary treatment program elsewhere. The goal while at The Creek is to remove the distractions of the outside world and assist our clients in building an appropriate foundation for their recovery. Being in a very structured and therapeutic environment at The Creek allows our clients to unplug and just focus on themselves, which is critical to their ongoing success throughout the remainder of the program. Individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy are vitally important in the first phase of our program. Other tasks that our clients engage in are recreational and experiential-based therapy.
Anchor- Extended Care
Our second phase is Anchor, which is our extended care phase. Clients that have completed primary treatment in a different program may enter the Momentum Recovery continuum of care at this point if deemed appropriate. Anchor 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 Anchor, with most clients attending at least one meeting or group session per day. Both individual and group therapy are vitally important in Anchor. Other tasks that our clients engage in during Anchor include life skills classes, finding employment, and enrolling in school. Our goal with Anchor 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. Giving our clients the ability to have a little bit more freedom in this phase better prepares them for the transition into phase 3.
Harbor- Sober Living
After a client completes Anchor, they then transition into Harbor, which is our third phase. During Harbor, our clients gain more exposure to the greater community while still offering the structure needed in early recovery. The sober living residences still have an on-site recovery coach, but residents are given the opportunity to experience increased autonomy. Our Harbor clients have the ability to attend class, work a job, and have other commitments within the community. Our goal for clients in Harbor is to have them continue to learn how to balance their own recovery with learning how to become more independent. Although the program requirements are reduced, clients continue to participate in individual therapy, group therapy, recreational activities, and one on one sessions with their case manager.
Compass- Change Management
After our clients complete Anchor and Harbor, they transition to the last phase of our program, Change Management, which can last several months, depending on the needs of the client. 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 regularly, and 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. This affords our clients the opportunity to transition into a sustainable lifestyle with a support team that they have come to trust
