Rosecrance has special services for adults

Psychiatric services for Adults

Many people with substance use disorders also experience a mental health disorder, so we offer psychiatric evaluation and treatment when needed. Our team will assess your needs while deciding if a referral to a psychiatrist will be helpful. Our inpatient clients also have access to psychiatric services on campus as well as dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.

Experiential therapies program

The Experiential Therapies Department at Rosecrance offer evidence-based recreational and art therapy programs specifically designed for adults with substance use and related disorders. These programs can help you recognize and understand your own physical, cognitive, emotional, and social styles. You’ll also learn new, healthier interests and activities that can support lasting recovery.

Recreational therapies programs

Active involvement in recreation can help you to:

  • Manage the stresses that threaten sobriety
  • Increase social interaction
  • Expand social networks
  • Enhance sober lifestyle and identity

Rosecrance’s recreational therapy program can help you learn and improve in many ways, such as personal independence, community leisure skills, well-being, fitness and health. The program also addresses decision-making, problem solving, relaxation training, assertiveness training, stress management, and organizational skills.

A certified recreational therapist will work directly with you. You’ll have access to our state-of-the-art fitness center, training equipment and fitness tools. You can learn about relaxation and stress reduction as you practice yoga and meditation techniques. Services include leisure education groups, team building, recreational activities, community recreation and cultural events.

Art therapies program

If you enjoy expressing yourself and your feelings through art, you may benefit from individual or group art therapy. Art therapy at Rosecrance focuses on the process — not the final product. Some clients who aren’t comfortable communicating with words can use art therapy to express themselves.

Our Master’s level art therapist can also help work through issues in your recovery using metaphor and concrete thinking. You’ll be encouraged to focus on current treatment issues while you work on conflict resolution and future goals.

Projects are chosen to suit the needs of each individual or group. You can work in a safe therapeutic environment that helps you process emotions, trauma or other addiction treatment-related issues using materials such as pastels, watercolor, tempera paint, clay, papier-mâché and collage.

Family programming

Rosecrance offers family members in-depth education about addiction, including lectures, open discussion and experiential activities. Families are encouraged to see that addiction is a family disease. They look at ways addiction has impacted the family while finding ways to work together toward lasting recovery.

Addiction, in whatever form it takes, greatly affects the family. An intervention is a way for family and friends to gather and tell their loved one in a loving and caring way how their lives have been affected. An intervention can greatly increase the effectiveness of a patient’s treatment.

Aspen Counseling and Consulting, a Rosecrance affiliate, will help the family prepare to lovingly confront addictive behaviors.
