First, Leona was designed to be different. Many of our staff members have worked with other organizations. So, when we all came to LVRC, we wanted to create somewhere that wasn’t just different but was special. What does that mean? We don’t focus on the “Luxury” effect, for one.
Of course, we want to share our amenities, as well as the comfort we provide within the facility, in the environment, and from the staff. On the other hand, we believe there is a trap in that mindset, a false belief that recovery happens exclusively within the four walls of treatment. In actuality, true recovery happens within the walls of one’s internal motivation, passion for change, and even their despair (which could be the most powerful prerequisite for healing).
At LVRC, we uphold the truth in every aspect. One thing that means: we make sure to acknowledge the natural formula of life, where healing can only take place through the ability to withstand extreme, internal struggles. We can work with you through those struggles to find your way, always with the utmost integrity.
Here at LVRC, we shed extra light on the importance of the respect our staff gives. The strength, teamwork, and bond (on a professional level/upholding boundaries) is, we believe, extremely important to one’s recovery. That’s especially true through the methodology of our culture. After all, we’re inviting strangers from all over the nation and asking them to go through one of the most painful times of their lives, all while living together. The least we can do is to treat them exactly how they should be treated.
Beyond that, our staff is as qualified and credentialed as can be. We hired the very best of the best in each of their fields. We did not define “best” solely as “with the most credentials” (although that was of great importance) but also as those who were best able to work with people, to treat them with respect and humanity.
How Long Do People Stay for Residential Addiction Treatment?
There is no one set answer to this. Everyone is different, their situations vary, and so forth. That said, many stay for 30 days, but there are exceptions where some stay for longer. Everyone who arrives at Leona will receive a full, comprehensive evaluation to determine exactly how we can best treat them.
When in treatment, the main concern is your health and your recovery. That said, many employers make it possible to work with you through this time. Perhaps you can take some kind of leave, maybe you can make a particular arrangement. You may be eligible for the FMLA, the Family and Medical Leave Act. This is a conversation you can have with your employer. We’re more than happy to discuss options as well.
Additionally, some clients will be a good fit for the Partial Hospitalization Program. With that, you may be able to continue to work your job when you go home at night from LVRC.
What is the Confidentiality Policy at Leona?
Confidentiality is paramount. We understand how important your privacy is. Thus, we follow any and all federal guidelines when it comes to keeping your sensitive information confidential. Any communication related to you must be approved with your written consent. When at Leona, we maintain your confidentiality no matter what.
Every person is different, facing different challenges and presented with different opportunities. We maintain a highly structured treatment environment. Therapy, in one form or another, will be a part of essentially anyone’s treatment. You could meet with your therapist, you could be in a group session, and so forth.
That said, you won’t spend all of your days at Leona in therapy, counseling, etc. You’ll be doing plenty of self-exploration in our serene environment. That’s true whether you’re hiking, horseback riding, or just sitting by the pool. Each day here is put together in such a way as to be one step forward on your personal recovery.
When at Leona, your recovery is what’s most important. So, we ask you to leave your phones, credit cards, jewelry, computers, and other valuables at home. We do recommend that you bring essentially a week’s worth of clothes, nothing too luxurious, revealing, and so forth. We go into greater detail once you’ve begun the intake process.
At our facility, you can have visitors during specific visiting hours. Depending on your specific treatment plan, you may be a good fit for our “Partial Hospitalization Program,” which would enable you to go home at the end of a session.
