You’re ready to head to rehab. But you wonder what it’ll be like. How will you find your way around or learn about the residential rehab schedule? With a client to client program, Green Mountain Treatment has developed a tremendous welcome mat.
Putting out the Welcome Mat
Don’t worry about figuring out everything on your first day. Green Mountain Treatment understands that entering rehab can seem overwhelming. For this reason, we designed a client to client program. It helps you connect with a peer who’s also in recovery.
This person’s been at the facility for a little longer than you. Even so, they remember what the first few days felt like. Besides that, they already know the routines and where to find various amenities. This peer will also become a friendly face who helps you get along.
Of course, all staff members are available at all times to assist you. However, sometimes, it feels more comfortable to talk to a peer. You want to get the input from someone who’s been where you are now. It feels natural and gives you hope that you can do it.
How a Client to Client Program Benefits the Chosen Peer
The client to client program in New Hampshire benefits all parties. For the established program participant, becoming a peer’s a big deal. It means that you’re well on your way to recovery. Most importantly, it also empowers you to share your experiences with the newcomer.
A Nod to the 12 Step Program
Of course, there’s more to the client to client program than meets the eye. Consider that Green Mountain Treatment is a 12 Step facility. This means that we assist you in attending the meetings. Part of the program is peer mentoring and accountability.
Initially, you find a sponsor when you enter a local 12 Step program. Over time, you may become a sponsor for someone else. By participating in the rehab facility’s mentoring setup, you practice for these events. They feel like second nature when the time comes.
Incorporating the 12 Steps with Other Care Approaches
The focal point of the recovery program is 12 Step immersion. It’s the one program that takes you from detox through aftercare and beyond. That said, you need other modalities along the way. They tie in with the lessons you learn during 12 Step meetings.
