Residential Treatment

Residential Treatment is available for men and women ages 18 and over who are legal residents in the Cayman Islands. The residential treatment programme at CHRC is based on a Therapeutic Community Model. In this structured model of treatment, clients live in a community environment and participate in daily living, therapeutic, educational, and recreational activities. Educational groups facilitated are Anger Management, Thinking for a Change, Time out for Men/Women, Mapping, Relapse Prevention & Life Skills; in addition to group therapy sessions. Clients will also attend creative art therapy, art group, and gardening, 12-step community NA/AA meetings, and recreational activities. Stages of treatment allow for establishment of individualized treatment goals and support clients throughout the change process. While length of stay varies according to individual needs, clients are asked to commit to a period of intense treatment in order to address their recovery goals. On average, length of stay may be 4-6 months. In order to successfully complete the programme, clients must complete the Orientation, Primary, and Re-entry stages of treatment.

 

  • Orientation: Clients spend approximately 2-4 weeks in this stage, becoming familiar with the programme while learning the rules, structure and philosophy. They develop individual treatment plans which are shared with the therapeutic community.
  • Primary: This stage can range on average from 12 to 20 weeks in length, depending on the progress made by the client. It is in this stage that the client begins to address individual issues, gain insight into his/her addiction and begin learning new skills to deal more effectively with life and recovery.
  • Re-entry: In this stage the client starts to reintegrate back into the larger community. They look for employment, volunteer, attend groups and individual sessions at The Counselling Centre and attend support group meetings, unescorted by staff.
