Cognitive behavioral or do you do more regressive work, taking the client back to family of origin issues? Here at solutions we believe that addiction is a biologically bases illness and explore family of orgin.we address cognitive process education as well as addressing potential stressors and triggers that may lead to relapse. 15) Walk me through your treatment program from admission to discharge. The first step of the treatment process usually begins with the phone call to our facility. During this phone call we gather information on the potential patient and pre screen them to see if they are a good candidate for any of our programs. We then schedule them for an intake assessment. During this process the patients gets an overview of our program, a tour of our house and medical/biopsychosocial assement. From this assessment the clinician develop a formal treatment program. Shortly after admittance the patient is scheduled an appointment with or contracted medical doctor for a detox evaluation and blood/tb testing. The patient then participates in their 30 day treatment program. Upon discharge, the patient is given a final evaluation as well as an exit interview. During this process they are encouraged to enroll in an Intensive Outpatient Program and referred to Sober Living. They also receive 2 years or aftercare at no additional charge. 16) How do you deal with difficult patients? What does it take to get kicked out of treatment? We believe that difficult patients with difficult behaviors are exhibiting the symptoms of addiction. Disruptive behaviors are addressed in both groups and individual therapy sessions. At this point a behavioral contract is drawn up with agreements from both patient and therapist. Activities that can result in behavioral contracts can
3 include repeated violations of house rules and an unwillingness to deal with problematic behaviors. 17) How do you deal with PTSD?

We have services such as art therapy, yoga, personal training, spa treatments, acupuncture and massage 19) Do you have expressive arts therapies? If so, which? Occasionally we take our patients to a facility where they are able to express themselves artistically during art or craft projects. 20) What is the actual facility like? Is it partial hospitalization? The Facility where the patients stay is a residential house strategically placed in quiet upper class neighborhoods. The houses are between 4,000-5,000 sq feet and have large backyards for activities as well as swimming pools. We try to make our house as comfortable and home-like as possible. There is no hospitalization unless a certain patient s detox assessment requires it. 21) Do you have a religious track? We are not religious based but we do encourage our patients to become spiritual and on Sundays will make arrangements for them to attend any type of religious service. 22) What is the average age of your clients? We take patients over the age of 18 and a majority of them are between the ages of ) Will there be any out-of-pocket costs that the center will not cover regarding the trade-out? How much? The only out of pocket costs that we may not cover is if the patient has to be referred out to detox center or hospital before being able to safely enter into the house. This cost is yet to be determined based on the severity of the situation. 24) What does the patient need to bring with them? The patients will need to bring with them clothing, toiletries, small amount of spending cash and other essentials for thirty days.

How much money should be deposited? The patient is allowed to have up twenty dollars with them at anytime. All other money is kept in a safe at the office. 28) Are there scheduled family visits? When? Family sessions are held every Saturday. The family participates in groups with the patient as well as with the other families from 10AM-2PM. Family visitation is from 2PM-5PM. 29) What do you recommend for lodging for the family when they visit? There are many hotels that are closely located to the facility and upon request we can make some suggestions. 30) What if the patient arrives in really bad condition/high/drunk? The patient is immediately evaluated for detox and based on the severity of the situation they are either assigned a personal house manager to monitor them until they are stable or they are referred out to one of our contractual detox center or hospital. 31) Is it possible to admit a patient anytime day or night? We typically prefer to admit patients between the hours of 8AM- 8PM although some exceptions can be made. 32) Do you provide transportation to and from the airport? If not, what do you recommend? Yes, we will provide all transportation to and from the houses and the airport. 33) Who is the best spokesperson for your facility? This person needs to speak both about the treatment center we well as the particular addiction the patient has. The best spokesperson for our facility is Dave Marlon. 34) Is it okay if we return and do a follow-up near the end of treatment? (Clinical team would give approval that it would not interfere with recovery and we would again work 100% with you as to filming.) Yes, a follow up after treatment is possible with a patients consent and release.
5 35) Do you have a full step-down program? Yes. As explained before we refer all of our residential patients to enroll in our Intensive Outpatient Program which meets three times a week for three hours each. This program lasts two months and is then followed up with a free two year aftercare program. During this time we encourage our patients to remain sober and to seek out a sober living environment. 36) How many owners has your facility had? 1 37) Are the meetings on site? Only the group therapy sessions are held on site. All of the other meetings are held out within the community. 38) Does your facility have a work program? No. 39) Transitional/ Sober living? We have a very close referral relationship with a Sober Living program that we refer our patients to. 40) How do you conduct your outpatients? Can you recommend a facility near the addict s home? We have an Intensive Outpatient program that is two months long. This program is offered to our residential patients upon completion of the program. We also offer two years of aftercare following any of our treatment programs. 41) Will the patient have a roommate during the treatment? Yes. We believe it is important that the patients never feel alone throughout the whole process of recovery. In all cases there are 2 patients per room. THINGS TO MAKE THE TREATMENT CENTER AWARE OF: 1) We want you to know that the people who come through our show could be really tough cases. We just want you to be prepared for that so you know how to deal with it. I will provide you with pre-interviews and psych evaluation beforehand. 2) Because the patient is arriving from an intervention, we can t say for sure what time we ll be there until we re on the way to the departing airport. We ll give you our best estimate and update you as it goes. 3) If we arrive in the evening, our producer will film the patient s arrival and a few minutes of the initial greeting and admission process. Then the producer will leave the patient in your hands. The next morning, the producer will return to the
6 facility and shoot an interview with your spokesperson (make sure they deliver good sound bites!) and some footage of the facility. This shoot usually takes about 2 hours.
