TIER 1 Recovery Theory

The overall goal of Tier 1 recovery is to offer individuals a comprehensive therapeutic milieu aimed at circumventing illicit thinking and behavior that contributes to self-defeating practices. CGCC proposes to address both immediate physical needs and long-term stability (through counseling, healthcare assistance and job skills training). The core of CGCC’s programming milieu sees treatment of addiction as a spiritual problem. CGCC will create a safe place, a sanctuary for individuals in trouble. Through acceptance, discipline and structure, individuals gain the emotional and spiritual confidence to meet the challenges of life without depending on mood altering behavior. CGCC will run a very structured program whereby each participant will be expected to follow a individualized treatment plan.  Milieu includes: personal counseling, a spiritual-based curriculum of study, life skills training and  educational training. Clients are assigned a clinical counselor who would develop treatment plans designed to focus on recovery and maintenance.  The emphasis on the spiritual dimension is supported by research that suggests individuals can return to the same environment that predisposed them to illicit behavior and be met with success.  This is because of the internal change and transformation that the spiritual dimension affords.
