At Lake Point Recovery and Wellness, we offer a wide range of services. In our therapeutic programs, Lake Point provides the latest in Evidenced-Based Behavioral Health treatment, from our licensed and experienced addictions and mental health counselors.
Our Residential Treatment program offers detoxification services for those who need to detox from substances, as well as the following group and individual services:
Psychoeducational group sessions teach customers about the complications of drug use, how substances affect the brain and the body and psychological issues that result from drug and alcohol use. These groups utilize information gained from years of study of substance use and mental health issues to teach customers what to expect during recovery. The groups provide an open forum for customers to discuss these issues and learn in a supportive environment.
Our counseling groups use evidence-based materials and techniques to provide effective counseling strategies for several customers at one time. We utilize Open Process groups to facilitate discussion in a safe client-centered environment designed to allow customers space to process thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or shame. Counseling groups are facilitated by trained Substance Use and Mental Health Counselors, to ensure the utmost quality of care is provided.
Nostos is an Evidence-Based Model that has shown significant results in many areas that influence addiction. Customers learn communication skills, behavioral management, daily living skills, empowerment, healthy relationships, and improve self-efficacy. Nostos is a 30-hour program consisting of ten 3-hour courses. Nostos empowers customers to learn healthy ways to interact with others, manage finances, engage in meaningful work lives, express themselves effectively and creatively as well as truly knowing who they are and the power they have to change their lives. Nostos aids customers in not only overcoming addiction and mental health issues, but also improving overall life satisfaction.
Trauma Focused Groups
At Lake Point Recovery and Wellness, we understand the role that trauma can play in addiction. We use a 20-session trauma and addiction focused program, Trauma-Informed Addiction Treatment, for our Men and Co-Ed groups. We utilize the Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model (TREM) curriculum to address the specific needs of women who have dealt with both trauma and substance use.
These models teach customers to build skills that emphasize empowerment and peer support. They teach customers techniques for self-soothing, boundary maintenance, and current problem solving. The TREM curriculum is a gender-specific 24-29 session group therapy model emphasizing the development of coping skills and social support for trauma and substance use disorders. Both models have shown great results addressing the interplay between trauma and addictions.
At Lake Point Recovery and Wellness, we want to offer a wide array of treatment options to better address the specific needs of our customers. As a result, we offer specialty groups to help engage our customers in areas that meet their individualized needs. We offer yoga groups to teach clients a healthy and relaxing activity that they can use for their recovery long after they complete our program. We also have gardening groups that teach the healthy hobby of horticulture. Many people in recovery have found that caring for plants can help with understanding how to better care for themselves.
Cinema-therapy provides educational films that help customers learn about addictions, see how others manage their drug abuse, and help to reduce feelings of isolation that come from living in long term drug addiction. Customers are then able to explore what they learn with the counselors and group members to gain a better understanding of patterns of addictions. Art therapy groups are offered to help customers learn to identify and process issues that they are unable to talk about, as well as help them express feelings.
Customers are able to engage in individual counseling sessions that both help to grasp the concepts discussed in groups as well as target individual treatment needs. Some customers may need more specific mental health treatment for issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders or PTSD. These customers can meet with our licensed mental health professionals to address these needs in conjunction with co-occurring substance abuse issues.
Individual therapy can also help customers who deal with less common issues of addiction such as gambling, pornography addiction, sex addiction, or gaming addiction. Our counselors employ a wide range of therapies to address addiction and mental health issues such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Moral Reconation Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Reality Therapy and many others.
Crisis Intervention Services
We take the safety of our customers seriously at Lake Point Recovery and Wellness. We ensure our staff are trained with the latest crisis intervention techniques to help to keep our customers safe. Our counselors and staff use non-physical de-escalation techniques to help customers experiencing thoughts of harming themselves or others. We also work with local psychiatric hospitals and EMS to coordinate care for those who require inpatient hospitalization.
We conduct random drug screens for all of our Residential, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient customers. A major factor in long term recovery is accountability, therefore we provide drug tests upon entering the program and randomly throughout the program. Customers are given breathalyzers to assess Blood Alcohol Levels (BAC) and 12-panel urinalysis that are both read on site and sent to our laboratory for verification and further analysis.
Mental Health Evaluation
Lake Point conducts comprehensive mental health evaluations to clearly identify the specific needs of each customer, in order to provide the most appropriate care possible. We offer psychological evaluations to both Residential and Outpatient customers. Our Licensed Psychological Examiner can offer evaluations that assess for deficits of functioning, cognitive ability, and personality assessments.
Addiction Severity Index (ASI) Assessment
All of our customers are administered the Addiction Severity Index (ASI) assessment. This is a tool utilized to assess the severity of a customer’s substance abuse and provide an all-encompassing view of the customers addiction-related issues. It addresses seven main aspects of behavior and environment related to the substance use disorder: Medical Status, Employment and Support, Drug Use, Alcohol Use, Legal Status, Family/Social Status, Psychiatric Status.
Primary Care Consultation/Maintenance
At Lake Point Recovery and Wellness, we partner with River Valley Medical Wellness Clinic, owned and operated by Dr. Kristin Martin, DO MS, FAAAFP, as a resource to provide healthcare services. Customers are able to be assessed by our staff of doctors and advanced practicing nurses so that any medical needs that arise during treatment can be treated. Customers are informed to take care of all medical issues that would interrupt a residential stay, prior to entering treatment.
Hepatitis C, Tuberculosis, STD, and HIV/AIDS Education
Our licensed nursing staff provide routine group and individual education on medical issues related to substance abuse. Our RN leads a monthly education group on Tuberculosis, Hep C, HIV/AIDS, and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Our competent staff of LPN’s RN’s, APN’s and doctors are also available to meet individually with customers to address questions or concerns about these medical issues and provide more advanced education on these matters.
