For over 40 years, Project Turnabout has been rebuilding lives for individuals and families suffering from the devastating effects of alcohol, drug, and/or compulsive gambling addictions. Our Men’s Inpatient/Residential Programs provide a serene environment for patients to begin the road to recovery with guidance of professional staff who coordinate their care.
When entering either the Short Term or Longer Term Men’s Residential Program, each patient completes a comprehensive assessment to assess the effects addiction to alcohol and/or other drugs have had on their physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and emotional health, as well as their relationships, education and employment. Patients who are suspected of having a co-occurring gambling problem may be referred for an assessment and/or treatment through the Vanguard Compulsive Gambling Program at Project Turnabout.
Information gained in the comprehensive assessment is utilized by the clinical team (licensed alcohol and drug counselors, mental health professionals, spiritual care provider) and the patient to create an individualized treatment plan, which utilizes a combination of education, therapy, and fellowship to help each patient recognize and overcome barriers to recovery. Clinical staff assist patients in exploring their chemical dependency, family relationships, and other co-occurring issues such as depression, poor self-esteem, physical, sexual, or psychological abuse, deficits in education, or daily living skills. Emphasis is placed on the interaction between addiction and other life problems, as well as the development of coping skills and support systems which will enable to patients to move forward into a life of sobriety. In addition, a certified personal fitness trainer and a dietary manager are available to assist patients in developing personal wellness and nutrition plans. Family education and facilitated group process is provided on a weekly basis to help patients and their families learn about the disease of addiction, its effect on family systems and functioning, and to initiate the healing process.
Men’s Short Term Intensive Inpatient Program
The Men’s Short Term Intensive Inpatient Program accepts males 16 years of age and older. The 20-bed unit is housed as a separate living area from our other programs and provides a treatment stay of approximately 30-45 days. Specific focus is given to educating patients about their chemical dependency, helping them identify and overcome blocks to recovery, and develop coping skills which will help them remain sober and participate in either a structured aftercare program and/or attend Twelve Step recovery meetings following treatment. Licensed professionals facilitate all programming, which include individual, group, and family therapy. Psychological, spiritual, and physical fitness services are also incorporated into each patient’s individual treatment plan.
Men’s “Selvig” Longer Term Intensive Inpatient Program
The Men’s “Selvig” Longer Term Intensive Inpatient Program accepts males 16 years of age and older. The 20-bed unit is housed as a separate living area from our other programs and provides a treatment stay of 60 to 120 days. For the chronic chemically dependent person, the additional time, flexibility, and slower pace of the Longer Term Program provide the opportunity to deal with not only their chemical use, but many of the underlying issues that contribute to relapse. Licensed professionals facilitate all programming and assist each patient with developing an individualized treatment and aftercare plan while providing the flexibility that is important in meeting their needs. Particular attention is paid to helping patients identify cross addictions and self-defeating behaviors, learning healthy interpersonal living skills and beginning to self-advocate for recovery. Psychological, spiritual, and physical fitness services are incorporated into each patient’s individual treatment plan. Patients may also have the opportunity to work on their G.E.D’s and research employment and other educational opportunities through a partnership with a local adult education service.
