Recovery Followers subscribes to the definition of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is based on the American Psychiatric Association DSM-5 and includes a desire to obtain and take opioids despite social and professional consequences. OUD is the chronic use of opioids that causes clinically significant distress or impairment. This chronic obsession and compulsive habit of use is often characterized by a myriad of problems or manifestations that include increased incidences of hospitalization, medical problems, arrests, increased involvement with the criminal justice system, loss of friends or negative changes in family and interpersonal relationships, inability to maintain employment, increased financial problems, acting out through anti-social behavior and at a more personal level, loss of self-esteem, self-confidence, and a decreased sense of personal responsibility. The Recovery Follower's treatment program focuses exclusively on those patients with a disorder of uncontrollable use to opiates/opioids and attempts to help them achieve a life without opioid use and experience recovery from opiate addiction.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY

01

We believe that treatment services should be delivered in a way that our  patients will be treated with compassion, dignity and respect, no matter the phase of recovery they are in. Each patient shall receive relevant, intentional care to the diversity of our patient population.  

02

We believe that treatment and recovery are very personal experiences with distinct physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components that may differ significantly from patient to patient.  

03

We believe that each patient has a right to be fully and completely informed about the services we provide and our approach to treatment. 

04

We believe that each patient brings unique life experiences to the treatment environment and plays a vital role in treatment planning, service delivery and discharge/transition planning.  Additionally, we are convinced that substance use disorder is a family disease and is best treated within that context.

Recovery Followers understands that this means we may at moments have the privilege and honor of treating multi-family generational perspectives. Therefore, we encourage and support, through fully informed patient consent, the involvement of family members and/or significant others in educational programs offered by the organization and, in actual counseling sessions and treatment activities.  Finally, we recognize our moral and ethical responsibility to provide the highest quality treatment services that hold the greatest promise of successful outcomes for our patients
