The Road to Alpha Home Recovery…
In March, we went over the admissions process. Due to the great need for affordable treatment in Texas, there may be a waiting period for admission into Alpha Home’s Residential program, and you will be given instructions by the Admissions counselor on how to remain on the wait list. Generally, admission in to the Outpatient program is immediate.
At initial intake, clients are given a packet which contains a client workbook, a copy of the house rules, a daily schedule, and a journal. They are also given a welcome packet of a new towel with toiletries.
Clients are introduced to the New Client Counselor Liaison during the initial intake. They will see the Liaison throughout the first week of treatment and often beyond that time frame.
The Liaison’s function is to help answer questions, alleviate anxieties and fears, and assist the client in becoming acclimated into treatment.
The Liaison conducts two orientation groups weekly to go over the rules and expectations and help the clients with whatever early treatment needs they have. The Liaison also meets with each client individually to complete a full assessment and identify their strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. Direct Care Staff also hold an orientation group in the week to further go over house rules and behavioral expectations.
