In-Home Recovery That Works

The Recovery Support Services program at Project Courage offers up to one year of in-home case management. To best help clients in recovery from addiction and alcohol abuse,  they are assigned a Courage Wellness Team consisting of:

  • Recovery Coach—The Recovery Coach completes a recovery needs assessment and evaluation with the client to build a recovery support plan. This plan is set to reach powerful, effective, meaningful goals. A recovery coach becomes the hub of the individual’s in-home addiction treatment, providing support, tools, encouragement, and structure. Face-to-face contact, phone, and text are all ways the recovery coach and client stay connected. Additionally, the recovery coach serves as a liaison to community-based treatment support networks and ensures the client’s clinical care is coordinated with all providers. Together, the recovery coach and client build routines and activities that help recovery from addiction and substance abuse.
  • Registered Nurse—The in-home nurse is central to coordinating the client’s medical care. In addition to conducting a health assessment the in-home nurse will also coordinate medical and ancillary medical services as dictated by the client’s individual care.
  • Gym Membership—Maintaining physical activity is important, not only for bodily health but also for mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. We will provide you with a gym membership where you can start to build a routine. If you would like to go with one of our recovery coaches, we provide all of them with a paired membership as well!
  • Psychiatric Services—When we say, “recover on your terms,” we’re acknowledging that Recovery Support Services at Project Courage is truly a collaborative endeavor. We’re not telling our clients that they have thirty days to get better. We’re not telling our clients that they must follow a certain pathway to substance abuse recovery. We’re not telling our clients they can or cannot use medication to assist their recovery. Perhaps most importantly, we’re not telling our clients they have to come to our office and meet within the parameters allowed by our schedule.

The Strategy of In-home Addiction Treatment and Recovery

Our recovery coach and nurse will come to your home; to your coffee shop; to your community. We’ll use a variety of strategies to foster opportunities for recovery from addiction and alcohol abuse including urine screening, mobile application technology, transportation (limited to first month) and access to a gym membership.

Finally, because Recovery Support Services is part of Project Courage’s licensed and accredited outpatient clinic, there will be a seamless integration of clinical services. So, those clients who currently are not good candidates for Recovery Support Services and need stabilization first can begin their journey with us. Likewise, those clients who experience a significant enough regression can step into our more intensive clinical services for stabilization, while avoiding residential care.

The SAMHSA recovery model identifies four domains as critical to develop for lasting substance abuse recovery:

  • Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and the independence, income, and recovery resources to participate in society
  • Community—having relationships and social networks that provide recovery support, friendship, love, and hope
  • Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms—for example, abstaining from use of alcohol, illicit drugs, and non-prescribed medications if one has an addiction problem—and, for everyone in recovery, making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being
  • Home—having a stable and safe place to live. Creating an environment that is conducive to recovery, and healthy activities.
