Rising Roads is for women who struggle with substance abuse, trauma, suicidal ideation, relational challenges, anxiety, depression, and disordered eating, and we believe in treating them all simultaneously.   Some of our women have been through multiple treatment programs and have had a history of relapse.  Old patterns and reactions activate after being gone for 30-90 days when they are getting back to work, school, or interacting with their families or friends.  Wounds are triggered, and they are not even sure how or why. Families don’t understand what is happening because their loved one had done so well in their previous programs.  Everyone is frustrated and discouraged.  

The Rising Roads Residential Extended Aftercare program goes deeper into the therapeutic process while simultaneously supporting life skills.  We believe the energy of trauma is held in the body, and our program consists of therapeutic modalities that are experiential.  We highly suggest reading information on our resources page to get a better understanding of why the same patterns continue to occur for individuals who have experienced trauma.  This work continues as the program progresses, and the women slowly start to gain more privileges and simultaneously are triggered by life experiences.  Examples of this are getting the phone back, communicating with the family again, job searching, and figuring out the next steps.  As the patterns return, women are in a safe clinical space to work through the emotional dysregulation that has previously led to relapse, relational challenges, and disordered eating as ways of coping.  

Life skills run parallel to our therapeutic programming.  Every family system and woman is unique, and they come to Rising Roads with a different set of outside circumstances and goals.  Some need to start self-supporting, and the primary goal is to get a job.  Some clients want to get back into school, and others need to get home for one reason or another and need a solid plan.  We have helped our clients with budgeting, resumes, time management, healthy study habits, and interpersonal skills.  Where ever our clients are in life, we can meet them and set them for success.

Individualized Treatment Planning

One of the unique aspects of Rising Roads is how we meet our clients where they are while also maintaining a collective program for all women. In the first two weeks, our clients meet with their individual therapist to outline their specific goals of treatment.  We assess their past with substance abuse, mental health, disordered eating, relationships with family and significant others, and where they are in their education and employment.   A treatment plan is created for 90 days, and the entire treatment team is updated on the specific needs and goals of the client.  Often the treatment plan is shifted during the stay as the uncovering and discovering process continues. 

Here are a few of the ways we can individualize treatment:

  • One-on-one sessions and testing with our nutritionist

  • Personal training

  • Additional individual therapy sessions

  • Medical and dentist appointments

  • EMDR

  • Adventure therapy

  • Specific assignments for clients

All of the above is in addition to the robust clinical programming scheduled Monday through Friday.  Group therapy allows clients to know their community better and to find their story often in their peers.  We often feel so alone, and the truth is many of us are struggling with the same core wounds of not being enough or feeling overwhelmed and unloved.   The entire treatment team also looks for common themes in the community and can address topics in their sessions the women can relate to as a whole. 

We are here to support our women and their families every step of the way in a life of recovery for all involved.
