The numbers are daunting for long-term success in recovery. You may already know that the success rate for clients leaving addiction treatment facilities in maintaining their recovery is only 40 to 50%…and that’s being optimistic!
But, did you know that there is a way to increase the success rate to closer to 90%?
What’s the secret? Ongoing support, accountability and monitoring.
These services have typically been made available to professionals that have had their licensing compromised by their addictive behavior. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, airline pilots…and the list goes on.
Now, these services are being made available to anyone interested in significantly enhancing their experience in addiction recovery. Whether you’re 18 or 80 (or anywhere in between), your recovery will be made much more resilient with the ReachYES Recovery Thrival Program.
We’ve included some of our most frequently answered questions below. If you’d like to learn more about our approach to addiction recovery and what it could mean for you, join us for our Turning the Tables on Addiction webinar. Just click on this link and you’ll find all the details.
ReachYES Recovery Thrival Program
We hear the stories every day. Even those with long-term recovery go through a trying time and relapse. In most cases, “life” has thrown situations at them that their recovery tools were not sharp enough to handle. Resilient recovery implies that the possibility of relapse is made much less likely with tools that are ever sharp and readily at hand.
This question is one for the ages. Most humans resist accountability but are much more productive and successful when it is present. The key is to define the consequences for non-compliance. For professionals, losing their license is a significant consequence. Interestingly, the consequences don’t necessarily have to be so “dire” to be effective. Developing consequences that are appropriate for the individual is part of the orientation process that members who choose the option to work with an advisor experience when they come into the ReachYES program.
Stakeholder is a term that was developed for business to refer to someone who has an interest or concern in its success. We thought this term was appropriate for recovery as well. The list of stakeholders for members of the ReachYES program include family, friends, employers and the community. Recovery must go deep and wide to provide the sort of resilience that ReachYES promises. This will require that the stakeholders embrace their own recovery…in ways that begin to reveal themselves as the immediate crisis of active addiction retreats.
ReachYES makes use of the most readily available and secure technology. Mentoring and coaching uses a web-based video conferencing platform. Education is delivered through email, web content and video. Monitoring is made convenient and minimally invasive with the use of online assessment tools that are accessed daily. If substance testing is required, voice or text messaging handles notification.
A “smart phone” is not required but would certainly make it more convenient to take advantage of all the benefits of the program. A cell phone with text messaging is sufficient as long as there is regular (daily) access to a computer and email. For those that need to restrict computer use, it is possible to limit access to only the applications required by the ReachYES program. If you aren’t comfortable using technology, ReachYES probably isn’t a good fit for you.
There are a number of options that vary the cost of the program. If you would like to learn more about the ReachYES Recovery Thrival Program, the best way to get started is to register for the Turning the Tables on Addiction webinar by clicking HERE.
When a member joins the ReachYES Recovery Thrival Program, they have the option of being assigned an advisor to provide assistance with developing the recovery blueprint and contract that includes requirements for monitoring along with the consequences for non-compliance. Typically, the consequences include notifying “stakeholders.”
The short answer is “it depends.” Professionals are typically monitored for a minimum of one but, often, three to five years. It is possible to remove some of the monitoring conditions as recovery is integrated and resilience is developed. We embrace a holistic approach to recovery. So, the ReachYES Recovery Thrival Program focuses on much more than sobriety.
