THERAPY PROGRAMS AT HOME ON THE RANGE New therapy programs started this year – Seven Challenges and Trauma Informed Care. There are seven steps but basically the program teaches residents to be honest, make informed decisions, and be responsible for positive and/or negative consequences. The Seven Challenges Program is designed for adolescent substance abusing or substance dependent individuals, to motivate a decision and commitment to change. It helps young people look at themselves, understand what it takes to give up a drug abusing lifestyle –and prepare for and attain success when they commit to making changes. This is our new drug and alcohol education program. We are the only facility in ND using the Seven Challenges program. (www.sevenchallenges.com)© The trauma informed care is recognizing that trauma is the result of not having a voice and not having a choice. As a result, we are beginning to implement strategies that return a sense of empowerment, voice and choice back to our teens. Soothing plans are being formed and enforced for and by our residents which are basic coping skills they help us to recognize. These skills are individual to every person, and we allow the kids to tell us what they need when they begin experience certain cues of anxiety, stress, anger and reactivity. This action gives them the voice and power they need to begin to learn how to self-sooth; a learned pattern that will hopefully follow them through life. There are other ways we are re-instilling choice and voice into the lives of our traumatized kids, such as letting them decide about their participation in some group and family therapies, allowing more phone calls to families in times of stress, and teaching our staff to listen more deeply into what the kids are saying or asking for. It’s our hope that through these and other strategies we can greatly reduce or eliminate the need for the use of seclusion and restraint in our program.
