Clarity Way Philosophy
The Clarity Way Method is a success-oriented program. The method utilizes a Multi-Sensory and Multi-Disciplinary approach to addiction. The Multi-Disciplinary approach enables clients to draw from multiple disciplines to define and apply new ways of understanding the mind, body and spirit. At our drug recovery center, our team of therapists each specializes in different modalities providing unique insight and perspective for each client in dealing with their individual issues. Our method works for the many clients seeking purpose and direction in their path to recovery without the stress and restrictions that may be in other drug and alcohol recovery programs.
Areas of Specialization
Exclusive Alcohol Treatment Program
The Clarity Way team closely monitors client progress over the course of the alcohol treatment program, updating therapy plans as needed. Following treatment, the Clarity Way aftercare program gives clients the assistance they need as they return home to the pressures and challenges of everyday life.
Therapeutic Dual Diagnosis Rehab
As part of the dual diagnosis recovery program, each client receives a minimum of 10-15 individual sessions per week in the modalities of Psychotherapy, Psychiatry, Drug and Alcohol Counseling, Family Therapy, Music Therapy, Spiritual Therapy, Art Therapy, Massage Therapy, Fitness Training and Yoga. During individual sessions clients work on addressing their dual diagnosis treatment issues once a firm diagnosis has been rendered by the clinical team.
Clarity Way believes family involvement during treatment is essential for a client's life-lasting success. As such, our treatment team keeps family members appraised of their loved one's condition and treatment decisions. In addition, family members are invited to participate in the therapy process so loved ones can share issues and feelings in a safe environment. Finally, families actively participate in the client's aftercare program, which strongly increases the likelihood of continued sobriety.
Holistic Recovery Programs
I never thought I could be sober and I never knew what was wrong with me and why I had the problems that I did, but I learned through my stay at Clarity Way that I could find recovery. I learned that there is nothing wrong with me, but that I have an addiction, and I learned how to deal with it. I didn't know I could be sober, but Clarity Way showed me that it's possible, even for me, and I remain sober today.John D., Texas
My family gave up on me wholly and closed me out of their lives. Clarity Way was their absolute last effort, and I was totally against it at first. Through working with the therapists on staff, and with everyone else at the facility, I was able to open up and deal with some very deep-set issues. I also was able to reconnect with my family, and am better for it. We're all more healthy and balanced since I've been to CW, and I am thankful ever day for the opportunity that I had to experience such an amazing facility and recovery philosophy.Becky G., Connecticut
When you go to treatment, you expect that most of what you're told is exaggerated. You expect the facility to be nice, but not quite how the center describes it - in this point, I was mistaken, it actually exceeded my expectations. You expect the therapy to be good, but not spot on with addressing your needs - in this point, I was again mistaken, as it also exceeded my expectations. Clarity Way has been an excellent experience for me and for my family - the individual time was key for my recovery and to assist my family so that we could move forward together. I can't speak highly enough of the therapy team, the medical staff and the support staff. Across the board, everyone was wonderful and motivating in the ways that were appropriate for me.Trevor J.
Had my son not gotten to Clarity Way when he did I don't think he ever would have even had a chance at recovery. Through the time spent at your facility he was able to be himself again, and to gain tools to be able to continue his recovery after leaving your center. I'm so thankful that we found you, you put our family back together.Sarah Y., California
Thank you so very much for thinking about our daughter as she turns the one year milestone of sobriety. This week our entire extended family will attend a support group meeting recognizing her achievement. It's a happy time for all of us and I credit Clarity Way for giving her the tools to deal with the devil of substance abuse.John R.
