The Level 1 Recovery Advocate Program from the Recovery Community is designed to be an extension of the treatment program. We take recommendations from the treatment center, other health information, recommendations/observations from the family, and any other information that might be helpful to the recovery process.
Level 1 Recovery Advocate Program Protocol
- Creation of an agreement with the client, family and the Recovery Community that promotes recovery and behavior in line with recovery from addiction
- Monitoring and testing of urine – these screenings will be performed at random so the sampling method is valid. If the test comes back positive, a no show, or not calling in, further actions are taken to prevent possible relapses.
- Regular attendance and monitoring of attendance of a 12-step program. Depending on the type of addiction a recommendation to a 12-step program and attendance of meetings is required. The client will be given a check-in sheet to be signed at the meetings.
- Regular meetings with a 12-step Sponsor. A 12-step sponsor is someone that is in recovery and can be a strong ally for a newly sober person in recovery. Meeting with a 12-step sponsor is one more way to be plugged into recovery
- Monitoring of participation and engagement with a yearlong recovery plan – this can include but is not limited to: therapy with a psychologist or psychiatrist, a sober living program, a sober companion, aftercare.
- Providing the family and client with detailed updates and progress reports. Also providing recommendations or identifying problems within the case management.
