Fellowship House Philosophy
Fellowship House is a non-profit addiction treatment facility designed to serve the needs of chemically dependent individuals and those struggling with co-occurring substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Clients are provided personal, social, and vocational assistance in attaining sobriety. Services include case management, educational coursework, medication management, vocational counseling, peer support, housing assistance, continuing care, and more.
Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
