Center for Men’s Recovery
Hanley Center at Origins believes that men have specific issues rooted in societal values that mold the stereotypical “American male” profile. Men are looked upon as strong and self-reliant, making it difficult for them to express emotions in healthy ways. This pressure to avoid expressing feelings can contribute to men using alcohol and drugs.
Origins’ residential treatment program features a highly trained, all-male addiction therapy staff. Our safe and supportive environment offers a space where perceptions and destructive behavior patterns are challenged. Throughout treatment, men discover the support, honesty and rehabilitation power of a peer group in recovery.
We offer client-driven care, and clients in need of gender-specific treatment receive it. After a thorough assessment, primary treatment focuses on:
• Alcohol and drug abuse education
• Relapse prevention
• Managing anger through healthy expression of emotions
• Emotional isolation and trust
• Spiritual disconnection
Men participate in experiential therapies, peer interaction and support, and group and individual therapies. As men explore the 12-Steps, they learn how to be honest about feelings and experiences. This liberating experience helps men to advance their lives chemically-free.
Center for Women’s Recovery
Hanley Center at Origins recognizes that women suffer greater physical consequences from alcohol and chemical addictions than men. Women become addicted faster and experience trauma and co-occurring disorders at a higher rate. Eating disorders and other process addictions are often linked to women’s substance abuse. Societal expectations and traditions encourage women to care for and nurture others, often at the expense of their own needs, identity and health.
We offer client-driven care. Clients who are in need of gender-specific treatment receive it. Under the expert care of our all-female, highly trained addiction therapy staff, women begin to renew their relationships with self and others as they achieve a holistic equilibrium in our safe and nurturing environment. Assessments by the multidisciplinary treatment team are conducted throughout a woman’s stay in order to develop a customized continuing care plan.
During primary treatment, specific women’s issues are addressed including:
• Shame and guilt
• Hormonal shifts
• Loss of identity
• Body Image
Women undergo expressive and experiential therapies, peer interaction and support, and group and individual therapies while learning about the disease of addiction. Individualized treatment plans may incorporate psychological and psychiatric therapies and medical care when necessary.
Each woman finds her own path to self-care and relapse prevention with a Hanley Center at Origins’ Hormonal Assessment. Through self-report, women learn to track triggers throughout their cycle or menopause, and to identify healthy coping behaviors and habits that will serve them through life’s stages.
Center for Baby Boomer Recovery
Origins’ mature adults in recovery engage with staff through coeducational living and individual and gender-specific group therapies. In an interactive approach that authentically addresses generational value systems and current life stressors, treatment becomes the catalyst of holistic health and energy.
Detoxification and treatment among Boomers can sometimes be a slower process based on long-term substance abuse and/or serious medical and co-occurring disorders. After a stabilizing detox and assessment, patients participate with their multidisciplinary treatment team in the development of a holistic treatment plan, setting realistic and achievable goals.
Treatment for Boomers includes specialty group therapy sessions that focus on:
• Gender-related issues such as intimacy
• Responsibilities unique to the “Sandwich” generation
• Changing familial relationships
• Grief and loss
• Issues at work
• Building a sense of purpose
Baby Boomers will learn about the disease of addiction and its bio-neurological basis. Adults participate in experiential, group and individual therapies and peer interaction and support. Psychological and psychiatric therapies also may be incorporated into a patient’s treatment plan based on clinical need. As patients progress further in their recovery they will have the opportunity to attend off-site sober meetings.
Center for Older Adult Recovery
At least one-third of all older adults suffer from late onset addiction, usually because of risk factors that include major life transitions, grief, isolation, chronic pain and depression. As a result, alcoholism and prescription drug abuse have reached epidemic proportions among this population. Members of a generation that were raised to regard substance abuse as shameful and reckless now struggle in silence, often without family or friends to witness the warning signs of addiction. When seen, the signs are often mistaken as part of the aging process.
Older adults begin their recovery journey at Hanley Center at Origins with a period of medically managed detoxification, stabilization and a holistic assessment. A longer detox and a slower treatment process address physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cognitive issues and aging factors. Acute medical care is provided by 24/7 nursing care and on-staff physicians. The average length of stay for older adults is determined by individual stabilization and recovery progress.
We offer client-driven care. Older adults participate in co-ed programs with gender-specific groups.
During treatment, specific issues related to older adults are addressed in group therapy, such as:
• Loss of memory secondary to addiction
• Malignant shame and guilt
• Accidental addiction — “The Prescription Drug Trap”
• Loneliness and isolation
• Lack of purpose/loss of identity
• Life transitions
• Medical concerns
• Pain management
Older adults will participate in psycho-education about the disease of addiction, which helps remove the stigma and barriers to recovery, as well as individual therapy, and peer interaction and support. A “Sober Seniors” support group, one of the largest of its kind in the country, is held weekly at Hanley Center at Origins.
Hanley Center at Origins recognizes that the disease of addiction affects the entire family. Every member suffers physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Often the family suffers in silence which is why we place a major emphasis on involving and supporting the family in the treatment and recovery process. Family members are encouraged to attend Hanley Center at Origins’ Five-Day Family Program to learn about addiction, develop tools for their own recovery and understand the emotional consequences of addiction and the recovery process.
The program is available at no cost to family members (18 and older) who have a loved one within any of our age-specific treatment programs. The program is based on lecture and interactive group learning, which allows patients and families to reach a deeper awareness and understanding of each other. Family members and patients gain a new appreciation of the roots of this chronic, neuro-biological disease, as well as behavior patterns that can enable addiction or support recovery.
The program explores topics such as:
• Addiction as a progressive disease
• Enabling addiction vs. supporting recovery
• 12-Steps for families
• Introduction to Al-Anon
• Relapse process
• Healthy communication and boundaries
