Adolescent & Adult
The majority of Active Recovery Network’s clients come to us after leaving a primary treatment setting. Whether have had a recent hospitalization, participated in a residential treatment program, intensive outpatient program, wilderness therapy program or a therapeutic boarding school, our work is largely about supporting them to utilize the skills they have learned and to act on the insights from their time in their respective program to clarify and move in the direction the client wants to go. Our team works to create a seamless continuum of care so that our clients can hit the ground running with creating the new life that they have been preparing to live. 
Addiction, Dual Diagnosis and Primary Mental Health
The majority of our clients are working to overcome alcohol and substance abuse and dependence disorders. Many of these clients are also managing and a mental health diagnosis. We work hand-in-hand with our clients’ psychiatrists to support medication management, healthy lifestyle choices, increased community integration and the life skills that support and foster independent living.
 
We also do great work with those who have NO substance abuse or dependence history. About 1/3 of our clients do not have any current or past substance abuse history but are working with a diagnosis of bi-polar, depression, anxiety, PTSD, or a spectrum disorder. Our work with these clients is similar in many ways but is also different in a few key areas. One of these areas being an increased focus on integration with long term, affordable community resources to ensure long-term success and independence.
Pre-Treatment, Post-Treatment, Concurrent with Treatment

We also team up with local intensive outpatient treatment programs to provide in-home support while they continue to participate in their IOP. We find great success in providing this kind of support and can support our clients in getting to their IOP program, engage them at the level of motivation, and help them apply in vivo the skills they are learning.
 
We also work with clients who have never been to treatment or who have not been to treatment in five years or more. We refer to these clients as “pre-treatment” and these clients and families are looking for a more preventative type of support and are hoping to mitigate substance abuse, support medication management, increase intrinsic motivation, connect socially, learn life and independent living skills, support in exploring values, meaning and purpose and more. These often include primary mental health clients who have somewhat successful managed their diagnosis but need support in moving their lives forward.
