Treatment & Rehabilitation Program Operation
The C.E.D. Fellowship House, Inc. is a Level III.1 Clinically Managed Low Intensity Residential Treatment Program for substance abuse, and is certified by the State of Alabama/Department of Mental Health/Mental Healty/Substance Abuse Services Division as a Co-Occurring Capable program providing services for twenty (20) beds. (Adult Males Only)
The C.E.D./FSH program is operated by a qualified staff as per the standards of the State of Alabama-DMH/SASD. The program is structured to provide the highest quality residential services for adult males that have a history of prolonged substance abuse, and/or their current living arrangement are not conducive for a lifestyle free from substance abuse.
The program subscribes to the concept that addiction is a disease, and that prolonged and excessive use of alcohol/drugs leads to jails, institutions and death. The program is designed to provide residential rehabilitation services for individuals suffering from substance abuse in an atmosphere for complete re-socialization in a homelike setting with support of outside 12 Step groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and other approved 12 Step based self-help groups. We also utilize other community programs and resources in our effort to assist the client in his personal recovery and growth.
Intake/orientation is conducted upon the clients arrival at our facility, particular emphasis is directed to any immediate needs of the client including, clinical, medical, legal, etc.
Individual rehabilitation plans are formulated with the client’s input of presenting problems. Upon completion of initial assessment, weekly “staffings” are held to evaluate the progress and or lack of progress and particular needs of the client. Rehabilitation planning consists of identifying problems, resources available, and client’s capabilities and the establishment of goals. These goals and objectives and methods of achievements relative to presenting problems will be measurable and documented. Program clients have input and participate fully in the rehabilitation planning process.
Whenever possible, families and significant others of the client are encouraged to participate in some form of the recovery process including family counseling, Alanon, Alateen, etc.
