MCCA Trinity Glen Kent: Long-Term Residential Treatment for Women Philosophy
The Trinity Glen Women’s Program offers a place for female substance abusers to recover physically and heal emotionally. With optional 12-step meetings, plus individual and group counseling, the program emphasizes work therapy as a way to help women gain a sense of responsibility and self-esteem so they can make a successful transition back into the community.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
