Rocco’s One on One
Each client is assigned an individual Rocco’s Recovery counselor based on the initial intake. Your One on One will do your one hour assessment and then meet with you weekly until you complete the program. You will be able to share things with your Counselor that you are not comfortable sharing in group.
Your Counselor will also describe the requirements for the 2 or 4 presentations you will be working on, depending on the length of program you sign up for. These presentations are vital to your long term sobriety because they are your daily action plans once your complete Rocco’s Recovery. The action plans you will be working on are:
- Step 1: Admitting you are powerless over alcohol/drugs & that your life has become unmanageable. (Rocco’s Recovery is not a 12 step program. We simply use the first step of Alcoholics Anonymous as the starting point for Rocco’s Recovery Treatment. It is the foundation from which a new life can be built. With that said, we highly recommend supplementing your treatment with 12 step meetings, fellowship & step work. The 12 step programs are important for finding a Higher Power).
- Relapse Prevention: When learning how to cope with sobriety and maintaining abstinence, it is important to have a relapse plan. A relapse prevention plan is valuable to have throughout recovery and while maintaining a sober lifestyle. Some of the activities in this assignment are to identify:
- identify your high risk situations
- identify your triggers
- identify coping strategies for stress
- creating an action plan
- and more…..
- Well-Being, Nutrition & Fitness plan: there are many individuals that turn to coffee, sugar, food & tobacco when newly sober. These items lead to sleepless nights, weight gain, depression, heart attacks & cancer. You will be creating:
- an overall well-being plan
- an herbal detoxification plan
- a 30 day food calendar
- a fitness plan
- Finding Purpose: When you’ve found a purpose for your life, everything becomes more meaningful. It’s far easier to stay on a sober path when you have something important to do and people who rely on you. Below is some feedback from past clients on why this presentation was paramount to their recovery.
- “When I was newly sober, life seemed like a boring stream of monotonous tasks. Most addicts, especially those who are in their teens and twenties, crave excitement. Without the thrill of using drugs or alcohol and the constant drive to find my next fix, i can start to feel lost. I started to question whether getting sober was worth it. After all, if your life isn’t going to be better than it was before I stopped using, what’s the point?”
- “To get sober and stay that way, I needed to learn how to enjoy a fun and fulfilling life without leaning on my addiction as a crutch.”
