Treatment Plans:

At 12 South Recovery, we understand that each veteran is unique, with their own set of wants, needs, strengths, and challenges. That’s why we take a personalized approach to treatment.

Our dedicated therapists work closely with clients, in conjunction with a personally assigned case manager, to create tailored treatment plans. These plans are designed to address specific goals and provide clear pathways to achieving them. We believe that progress is best achieved when clients are actively involved in their treatment journey.

How It Works

Comprehensive Assessment: We begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of each client. This assessment helps us gain a deep understanding of their history, experiences, and current challenges.
Goal Setting: Together with the client, we set realistic and achievable goals for their recovery journey. These goals are based on their unique needs and aspirations.
Treatment Planning: Our therapists and case managers collaborate to develop a customized treatment plan. This plan outlines the therapeutic interventions, counseling, and support services that will be most effective for the client.
Dynamic Progress Monitoring: Once treatment begins, we maintain a dynamic approach to progress monitoring. As new goals emerge and old ones are met, our team continuously fine-tunes the treatment plan. This ensures that clients are always moving forward, building upon their successes.
Empowerment: We empower clients to actively participate in their recovery. By involving them in decision-making and goal-setting, we foster a sense of ownership and motivation.

Our goal is not just to help veterans achieve short-term improvements but to equip them with the skills and strategies they need for lasting recovery and personal growth. With personalized treatment plans and ongoing support, veterans can experience positive, sustainable changes in their lives.
