‘Some people hope getting a few weeks away from the Drugs or Alcohol in detox or residential rehab treatment program will be a magic fix. I wish it were that easy. Addiction for most people has become an ingrained pattern of using, thinking and behaving and they need effective, evidence-based rehabilitation, follow-up and support to really cement positive changes in place. Effective aftercare support and relapse prevention planning is a critical part of the recovery process". - Jason Bowman - Addiction Solutions Victoria Manager - Melbourne - 2021
The ASV Rehab at Home Drug and Alcohol rehab treatment approach is based on the Living in Balance program developed by Danya International and distributed by Hazelden (USA). It has been soundly evaluated, is endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is listed in the US registry of evidence-based programs and practices (NREPP).
The Addiction Solutions Victoria (ASV) Home Based rehab program is an affordable, evidence-based addiction treatment and rehabilitation program for any person who requires rehabilitation within the context of their home-like environment.
The purpose of the program is to assist the individual to establish a safe, supportive and stable environment, free of drugs and alcohol where the person can begin their recovery journey. Additionally, delivering services and support within the home allows the person to focus on treatment, change and rehabilitation within an atmosphere where they feel safe and their privacy is protected.
"The action of restoring someone to health or normal life through training and therapy after imprisonment, addiction, or illness."
Whilst people may have been using Alcohol and/or other drugs for years, it’s surprising how little they (or their loved ones) may know about addiction and sustainable recovery from addiction.
Most people when they think of rehab or addiction treatment think of residential inpatient Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation programs. At ASV, we understand that residential rehab programs are not for everyone. We offer affordable, evidence-based Drug, Alcohol and other Drug rehabilitation & recovery support options delivered in the privacy and safety of people’s own homes. These addiction treatment packages provide people seeking support for substance misuse or Drug and Alcohol addiction access to qualified, experienced staff and soundly evaluated approaches.
Jason Bowman is the manager of the ASV recovery support team. Through his work in many leading private and not-for-profit addiction support services as a senior manager, Jason has seen many people find and achieve sustainable recovery from addiction. Over the last 15 years, he's enjoyed working in various roles that have allowed him to help support these individuals on their road to freedom.
The ASV recovery support team provides addiction medicine assessment and ongoing support, psychology, family therapy, peer support, case management, community development and AOD support.
Initial contact is usually from a family member seeking solutions for a loved one impacted in a negative manner by an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Family support options are also provided to family, loved ones and significant others.
The ASV Rehab at Home core program is delivered over 4 weeks. Extended aftercare options are available upon completion of the initial program. Depending on the client's needs and individual circumstances clients typically receive one to two recovery support consultations per week. During the program, functional, realistic and achievable goals are created and developed collaboratively with the client and their family/carers allowing the ASV team to deliver flexible support to a range of people with different requirements and needs.
The ASV Rehab at Home program provides opportunities for individuals participating in the program to cease addictive behaviours, slow down, catch their breath, move through the treatment process and benefit from developing an improved awareness and overall sense of self. Additionally, it enhances learning by providing all clients with the opportunity to participate in a contemporary treatment process in a real-world environment. Appropriate referrals are provided to external services and supports as required.
People challenged by an addiction to drugs and alcohol require rehabilitation and treatment to allow them the opportunity to cease addictive behaviours while identifying and addressing the complex psychological and emotional issues that accompany the addictive condition. The high majority of people seeking change require evidence-based professional therapeutic and peer support, delivered in an engaging, respectful, professional and ethical manner.
There are various factors that contribute to addiction such as gene expression and epigenetics; developmental events in childhood; psychological trauma; departure from healthy familial relationships at critical periods of development. There are also many pharmacologically induced changes in the brain's reward system such as dopamine hypersensitivity and depletion of opioid receptors owing to chronic drug administration. These factors combine together to encourage larger amounts of drug ingestion than before relying on the substance as an escape mechanism that prevents pain or discomfort for extended periods of time.
All ASV staff hold appropriate qualifications for their roles and are passionate about assisting people seeking change to receive authentic opportunities to achieve it in a sustainable way.
The team will provide evidence-based information and support strategies specifically designed to support any person impacted by an addiction thru the most effective possible addiction and mental health treatment options.
Who Can Benefit from the ASV Rehab at Home Program?
Anyone who is experiencing challenges attached to their addictive patterns with substance use, dependence or addiction that desires to become sober and drug-free and start a recovery plan designed especially for his or her situation and desires.
People who may have previously tried treatment and rehab and relapsed can benefit from the personalised attention of a more flexible, personal and personal approach.
The ASV primary purpose is to facilitate and assist you in your recovery from addiction.
Realistic and sustainable treatment and recovery plans provide authentic opportunities for positive change and recovery. Access and linkage to appropriate support groups during and post-treatment is usually a critical component of this process.
We take under consideration your entire well-being – mind, body and soul. That being said, we encourage the development of a new lifestyle, including health, fitness, nutrition and relationships.
Developing a sensible and achievable recovery routine is integral to sustaining recovery.
At ASV, we also understand that some people do need inpatient (residential) admissions for Drug and/or Alcohol rehabilitation. With this in mind, our multidisciplinary treatment team works closely with two of Australia's leading private alcohol and other drug rehab centers, Both of those preferred services are fully accredited and regulated private hospitals that have been operating for many years and have helped many to overcome addiction and return to their lives and active and meaningful participants.
