Our treatment team recognizes that each woman brings in a different background to The Rose that warrants a unique approach. We individualize treatment to address each woman’s individual issues and give her the best possible chance at long term recovery.
By Women and For Women
The Rose is largely staffed by women for whom recovery from chemical dependency is a way of life. There is a special bond that forms in the fellowship of recovery with other women who truly understand what it means to make it through the treatment process and change their lives to one of sobriety.
The primary care treatment at The Rose is designed for a woman to get a very solid foundation in the first 30-90 days of sobriety. The therapeutic approach to recovery is a combination of William Glasser’s Reality Therapy and Albert Ellis’ Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. The supportive stance of breaking through the denial of the chemically dependent woman is summed up well in Dr. Phil’s trademark line “How’s that working for you.”
The Rose Treatment program is holistic in nature – we approach every client’s recovery with their whole being in mind:
We use a wide variety of treatment modalities to get to the underlying issues that are affecting the woman’s ability to make the choice to abstain from drinking alcohol or using drugs. Some modalities include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Trauma Resolution
- Experiential Therapy
A Medical Approach Combined With 12-Step Principles
Addiction is now accepted as a treatable mental disorder. Struggling with addiction is not a matter of making good or bad choices, it is the loss of choice due to a variety of genetic and environmental factors.
Our treatment team also subscribes that the approach from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous that addiction is a spiritual malady. The 12-Step program of AA is a template for long term sobriety that is built upon fellowship with other recovering women and the process of
- attending support groups
- working through the 12-Steps of recovery with a “sponsor”
- once sober, helping others who are newer to the process
Alcoholics Anonymous is the foundation for millions of recovering women and the recovery community in Newport Beach is unparallelled in it’s variety and excellence of 12-Step based meetings. We introduce women to some of the strongest support group meetings so that they can be exposed to women who are truly living life and enjoying it sober.
