Statements from Narrowsburg School bidders
At Changes, we pride ourselves in promising that any client who enters our treatment program with insurance and has been accepted for a 30 day period, will not be dropped or sent home should their insurance fail to pay or be discontinued while in treatment. We firmly believe that clients benefit from a smooth transition from one level of care to the next as they gain the necessary skills for a successful recovery. They become able to cope with issues and function more independently as sober adults. Research has long shown that the longer a client stays in treatment and stays involved within a recovering community, the better the client’s chances are for long term sustained recovery. We also offer a limited number of scholarships for those who have no insurance or can’t afford to pay. We need people who are insured to cover those that are not. Unfortunately, the staff does not work for free and no one but us pay the bills at the facility.
Changes Treatment and Recovery runs it’s facility with the belief that chemical dependency is a progressive disease affecting a person’s mind, body and spirit. Our goal is to work within our facility and in partnership with the community, to achieve healthy living and recovery from substance abuse for all who seek help. We believe in a total wellness concept that encompasses not only a person’s chemical dependency but also their mental, social, educational, physical and spiritual needs as well.
We understand that chemical dependence can often times be a family illness, so by placing emphasis on establishing a family system of support that is conducive to a client’s health, abstinence can be achieved. We believe that each client and family possess a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses; therefore, the most affective recovery approach is one where we individualize and uniquely develop a customized plan of recovery for each client. Each client’s recovery depends on intensive daily meetings, group therapies, lectures, and community support services available. The utilization of all of these programs result in the client gaining the strength and knowledge to work toward the goal of abstinence and lead a more productive life. And from what I understand by speaking to members of the community in Narrowsburg who have addiction in their family, this is not offered to them in the programs they are in.
