Meridian understands addiction and recovery. We know that each person will be successful in his or her own way. Our treatment programs offer many options to fit each person's healing style.
We offer a variety of outpatient programs in several locations (Flint, Pontiac, and Redford). Depending on your individual needs after you complete the intake process, your therapist or health care professional will recommend the appropriate program for you. Through your journey at Meridian, therapist or health care professional will work with you to continually individualize your program.
This program is designed so that you will attend group on a weekly basis which will assist you in starting to learn how to build a support system throughout your recovery journey. You will also meet with licensed therapist twice a month. During the individual sessions, the licensed therapist and you will create a personalized treatment plan that reflects your goals and objectives for your recovery. You will learn and discuss issues such as triggers, challenges and accomplishments that have helped you change your behaviors. The therapist will work with you to incorporate any of your support systems into your therapy sessions. This could be a family member, a peer recovery coach or your sponsor. Therapy is science-based and focuses on helping you recognize behavior patterns and change them, so that you can lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
This requires a larger time commitment - at least nine hours each week for nine to 12 weeks. You will have individual therapy sessions and group sessions, and develop plans for recovery and relapse prevention. If you have an additional mental health condition such as anxiety or depression, you will have access to additional group specializing in "co-occurring" issues.
