IOP Long Term Phase: Grounding Phase of Treatment; Upaya

Weeks 4-8: UPAYA: Skillful Means

In this phase of treatment, we are actively practicing skills learned in treatment groups (for impulse control, mindfulness, attunement, internal safety, delayed gratification, consistent schedule, safe behavior choices, self-soothing, emotional regulation, medication compliance and stabilization, distress tolerance etc.) as we navigate the moments of daily life. This intentional, conscious way of living can be summarized in the Buddhist concept of Skillful Means (upaya) : the action is applied with wisdom and compassion and that it is appropriate in its time and place.

  1. Continue to attend treatment groups (3 days/nights)
  2. Attend at least 3 outside meeting (NA/AA/SMART/Life Ring/Refuge Recovery) and gather signature for verification

  8. Successful Grounders become well rooted in Skillful Means- safe routines, self- care
    1. Identify and regularly practice safe and effective behaviors supportive to their life worth living skills

 

 

Sustainable Recovery Phase

At this point, real progress should have been made toward complete abstinence. We would typically be achieving sobriety milestones (or at least progress toward them). We “step-down” the level of care to minimize the time commitment in order to shift focus back on pursuing career, family time and relationships, etc.
