Drug Treatment Center
Heartland Recovery Center is an outpatient drug treatment center that is not seen anywhere else in Northwest Indiana. We designed a drug treatment center where the average person can get an above average experience in Indiana. Our belief is that every client’s treatment should be individualized – just like them. Our clinical team works together with our clients to tailor their treatment plan based on the goals and clinical needs of our clients.
Levels of Care
Our drug treatment center is built to reflect the individuality of each client that walks through our doors. At our drug treatment center, we offer three levels of care to best meet the needs of each individual client. Before our clients begin their Heartland journey, they go through a thorough clinical assessment to ensure that the proper level of care is offered to each client.
Each level of care offers the best treatment to give our clients the best Heartland experience. We understand that addiction is different for each person. Which is why we expose our clients to multiple paths of recovery. Clients will learn from each path while in treatment, in hopes to gain an authentic connection to the path of recovery that resonates with them most.
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- PHP day treatment is our highest level of care and best suited for someone who needs a more intense program. It is a unique model of treatment as it combines components of both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Having a day schedule for treatment allows our clients to work on their recovery during the day and then be able to go home during the evening. For this program, clients will complete a minimum of 25 hours of direct clinical treatment per week. Monday – Friday from 8:15am – 3:15pm.
- Intense Outpatient Program (IOP) & Outpatient Program (OP)
- IOP & OP evening treatment was created for those who are in need of a residential treatment “step-down” or for those who are new to treatment. Evening clients are able to leave our outpatient drug treatment center every day to help them implement their developed skills in the real world – creating an authentic path towards recovery in real time. IOP & OP programs include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Relapse Prevention, Emotional Model Recovery, and Mindfulness. IOP & OP clients complete a minimum of 5 weeks in the program. IOP treatment is in session Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday from 5pm – 8pm and OP treatment is in session Monday & Wednesday from 5pm – 7pm.
What Makes Heartland Successful?
What makes our drug treatment center a rarity to Northwest Indiana is that we created an exclusive environment and atmosphere that we call the Heartland Experience. Combined with our treatment program, we prioritize rebuilding the family and not just the client. Having a strong support system is a critical part in the recovery process. To help healing take place in the family system, our drug treatment center offers several services, workshops, and family support groups every week.
The Heartland Process
At our drug treatment center, clients are offered a free consultation by our intake staff in order to guide them to the next appropriate step. If our intake staff deems that an assessment is needed, we will schedule an in-depth biomedical, psychological, & social assessment which is done by our clinical team. Our assessments are centered around the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Even if potential clients are not a fit for Heartland, we will help direct them to the next step or proper level of care that is needed.
Once our clients get approved and placed in the proper level of care, they begin treatment. Before clients begin their treatment, they go through a brief orientation. The orientation is to make certain that our clients understand what the Heartland Experience entails including rights and responsibilities while they are with us. The length of treatment depends on the needs of the client. We do recommend a minimum of five weeks; however, if our team believes additional time is needed (even if it is a step down), we will make adjustments together.
The aftercare program begins once clients complete their regular treatment, whether it’s the day or evening program. Clients will partake in weekly check-ins with our Supportive Services staff for up to a year or longer after treatment. These meetings are to help support our clients on their path towards recovery. As clients experience continued success in their recovery journey the check-in’s can be decreased. However, if clients are not doing well, our Supportive Services and Clinical staff will partner up to help best assist clients to the level of care needed.
Heartland Recovery Center continues to grow and expand its dedication to redesigning recovery by offering several unique and individualized services including: free consultations, assessments, interventions, PHP, IOP, OP, individual counseling, referral resources, workshops for families, and support groups.
