Academic Advising in Addiction Treatment

Young adults in today’s society experience many challenges related to their educational experiences. Whether difficulties began in elementary school or at a prestigious university, a decline or failure in academic achievement can prove to be stressful and potentially debilitating. Many of our clients are motivated to achieve educational success, but would benefit from additional support, resources and academic advising. Encore’s academic coaches work with our clients, to acquire transcripts, support retro-active withdrawals, complete applications, prepare for interviews, ensure appropriate study habits and test taking skills, and monitor progress. Our academic coaching and addiction treatment program are geared to help our patients achieve success.

Clients receiving treatment through Encore’s intensive outpatient and
partial-hospitalization programs receive thorough biopsychosocial
and nutritional assessments, as well as a psychiatric assessments, if indicated,
to determine addiction history and current treatment needs. Our
assessments also determine contributing factors, maladaptive behaviors, and
underlying health problems that may have contributed to the addiction in the
first place. Personalized care plans and aftercare plans are developed to
address the issues identified through assessment, and these plans are updated
and optimized throughout treatment as new or different symptoms and issues are
discovered or arise. Our clinicians deliver
therapies geared toward client needs, organize wellness services to support
holistic care and coordinate with other specialized care providers when needed
to give clients a holistic approach to overall healthcare. The integration of
multiple healthcare disciplines and therapeutic modalities is important to
treat the interconnected symptoms of addiction and mental health conditions.
