On Wednesday, January 18m 2012, the Hanley Center in West Palm Beach is having its first Professional Breakfast of 2012 featuring Ruben Roberts, a Senior Research Associate from the Center for Family Studies, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine.
Hanley Center is a word renowned non-profit addiction recovery center. This center is THE model for addiction treatment. They offer gender specific programs and age specific treatments to insure the most effective potential for recovery. The treatment protocol for every patient includes the assessment and involvement of a variety of caring and trained professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health counselors, physicians, nurses and others.
At Hanley Center, the staff understands that an addict does not function all alone in the world. He or she is part of a family system. Therefore, at Hanley Center, there are treatments available which include family members along with the identified patient. Outpatient services are also available for adolescents and their families.
There is a treatment continuum of care provided for alcohol, drug and substance abuse recovery. This continuum includes: medically managed detoxification, comprehensive psychiatric and psychological services, primary residential treatment, family program, day treatment, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and alumni aftercare and support with two years of follow-up after treatment.
The treatment approach includes all of the following specific programs.
- Milestone Program for Women
- Benchmark Program for Men
- Freedom Program for ‘Boomer’
- Independence Program for Older Adults
- Foundations Program for Families
- Outpatient Services for Adolescents and Adults
- Spiritual Care
- Medical Detoxification
- Medical and Nursing Services
The Family Program provides family members with an opportunity to gain insight into the ways in which they have been affected by the family disease of chemical dependency and to learn how to recover from the effects of the disease. Alcoholics and addicts, and those who love them and are closest to them, are affected physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. As the disease progresses, many family members become so focused on the addict or alcoholic that they lose the ability to take care of themselves. A very special, first of the new year, professional breakfast will feature an in-depth talk about Basic Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) by Senior Research Associate, Ruben Roberts, from the Center for Family Studies at the University of Miami
