Ready-to-Work Substance Abuse Treatment Near Houston, Texas
For many people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, there are many hurdles to overcome before they seek substance abuse treatment. One primary barrier is whether they can leave their professions safely with a guarantee of privacy and job security.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides some protection for employees who choose treatment for substance use disorder (SUD). However, there are certain FMLA stipulations regarding employer size and other employment factors that might make an individual temporarily ineligible to take a leave of absence with an assurance they can return to work after treatment. So Great Oaks Recovery Center offers another option.
The Ready-to-Work program provides comprehensive care and case management for employees struggling with SUD and co-occurring mental health challenges. Robert Tomasiello, CEO for Great Oaks, said, “This program is designed to create a treatment alliance between employees, employers, and the board-certified and licensed Great Oaks’ clinical team to support a sustainable transition back to a productive workplace relationship.”
How Ready-to-Work Helps You
Employees heal though the latest evidence-based therapeutic models provided by our board-certified clinical team, which uses a multi-disciplinary approach to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Our staff has hands-on experience with alcoholism, drug addiction, and dual diagnosis of mental health and co-occurring conditions.
While each individual enters a Ready-to-Work (RTW) program tailored to their unique needs and goals, here’s a general idea of what to expect.
The Ready-to-Work program can be be tailored to the client’s need, with most programs lasting 28-40 days. The weekly program schedule consists of:
- Six hours of group cognitive behavioral therapy to help individuals build connections through their actions and thoughts, and understand how they relate to addiction triggers and, more importantly, learn how to control triggers with better awareness.
- Five hours of 12-Step immersion groups to create a pattern of accountability and purpose.
- Ten hours of process groups—two of which are gender-specific—to receive encouragement, support, and feedback from multiple perspectives about how to move into recovery.
- Two hours of yoga and meditation to promote better calming habits from within and reduce stress.
- Additional components such as equine therapy and a family program.
This fusion of modalities has proven to be more successful than just a string of singular methods.
