About Life Management Resources
At Life Management Resources, we take a different view of addiction, but it is one that leads to great and lasting success.
- We view alcoholism and substance use disorder as a chronic, progressive and fatal illness if left untreated.
- We believe that alcohol and drugs are Solutions to problems, not the problems themselves.
- We believe that taking the time to help you find those underlying reasons will result in a lasting recovery.
- When a patient walks in our door, we make an assumption that without our full involvement with the patient in a treatment program, that the possibility of death exists.
- Recovery from a dependence on alcohol or drugs is the only acceptable goal.
- Your success is based on the commitment to patient care made by the entire staff, the quality of the process we undertake to discover the underlying roots of the addiction, and the quality of teaching new coping skills to face the world without fear.
- Each of the 24 sessions of the IOP is based on a specific topic for that evening. Our protocol library is extensive, covering over 8000 pages of material. All dedicated to helping you make a significant change in your life.
In 2008 Life Management Resources became Nationally Accredited by the Joint Hospital Accreditation Commission, the highest level of accreditation a health-care facility can receive.
Working with Mental Health and Substance Abuse
Mental health disorders are complex illnesses that affect our brain and our behavior. Along with having an issue with substance use disorders, many people suffer with other mental health disorders at the same time – depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and many others.
We do not see any one issue as defining a patient. Rather, all the issues in a person’s life which causes distress are factors that must be addressed. Our program is a holistic approach to recovery, designed to provide the education, counseling, and medication necessary to reduce the distress caused by these issues. Additionally, we work to encourage a greater participation in community, spiritual, physical exercise, meditation and family activities to bring greater joy into your life.
Under the Guiding Principles of Recovery developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), recovery “encompasses an individual’s whole life, including mind, body, spirit and community. The idea of holistic recovery implements very practical, comprehensive ways for the individual to develop a meaningful life both during and after treatment. Holistic treatment is a necessary and important part of substance abuse recovery designed to help the individual reach his full potential while leading a self-directed life.
