In the Substance abuse field, we use the terms “residential” and “inpatient”. At Unlimited Visions, both these terms mean that a person will be staying on our campus from the beginning of treatment until the end. Both “intensive” and “supportive” are words used to further describe the type of treatment we provide. Intensive treatment means that individual and group sessions occur more often during the week. As a participant progresses through treatment, they become more successful in understanding what is necessary for a life in recovery. As they progress, the treatment can change from intensive to supportive, meaning the participant is meeting for individual and groups sessions less frequently.
We offer a residential program to adolescent males, ranging in age from 13-17. Both 12 year olds and 18 year olds can be accepted on a case by case basis. While living on our campus, these participants have an opportunity to learn more about their substance abuse disorder while attaining a traditional education. With completion of the residential program, the participants can join the adolescent outpatient service we offer. Our Adolescent Outpatient resides on the Pasadena campus as well and offers services to adolescent boys and girls, ranging in ages from 13-17.
Our residential services include but are not limited to: in house prevention, substance abuse counseling with individuals, groups, and families, family Sundays from 1-3 PM, psychoeducational services, delicious and nutritious meals, relapse prevention, life skills such as interpersonal communication, anger management, and problem solving, co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders (COPSD) case management, alcohol and drug education, exposure to alternative peer groups, fields trips to different colleges, museums, football games, etc. We’ve also recently partnered with Adventure Learning to provide our participants with new and different experiences. Participants who are actively focusing on their recovery as well as being a leader on campus get a chance to enjoy mountain biking, yoga, rock climbing, hiking, camping, ROPES courses and fitness classes.
