The Dunes East Hampton Recovery Program in New York
Our drug and alcohol recovery program begins with an initial interview and intake for each new client. We use The Syndrome Model of Addiction as presented by Dr. Howard Shaffer, Senior Program Consultant at The Dunes. As outlined by Dr. Shaffer, each addict or alcoholic has a collection of signs and symptoms that the addiction presents. Because of this, we complete a full physical, emotional, and psychological evaluation on each client, which gives our team the information needed to develop a custom treatment plan.
Individualized Programs for Addiction Recovery
Our drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs are tailored to the specific needs of each individual. Our personal attention to each client is a major attribute that separates us from the average recovery program. We also maintain a high clinical staff-to-client ratio, so we can focus individualized attention throughout the program – from evaluation to recovery plan goals.
Recovery planning and education at The Dunes is collaborative and comprehensive. Collaborative, because at The Dunes, clients are involved every step of the way, in designing their own individualized recovery plans and structured post-Dunes continuing recovery plans. Comprehensive, because members of The Dunes management and the clinical team recognize there are many facets of each client’s cycle of addiction that need to be addressed in order to give them the best opportunity for long-term recovery.
That’s why The Dunes’ program integrates what we know to be the key elements of a successful recovery into each client’s collaborative work with us. These elements include:
- Psychological evaluations
- Physical evaluations
- The Syndrome Model of Addiction
- Behavior-focused protocols
- Emotional education and therapy
- Physical rejuvenation
- Spiritual reawakening
Our staff is available any hour of the day or night to discuss your options and help you start your journey to recovery.
Specialized Addiction Treatment Therapies
The Dunes addiction treatment programs include education on the neurobiology of addiction and reinforce the adoption of coping mechanisms that provide a foundation for long-term recovery.
Therapy Programs for Addiction Treatment Available at The Dunes Include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Eye movement desensitization and Reprocessing
- Family and experiential therapies
The treatment therapies and modalities are matched with each client according to the type of addiction and the experience of the individual. Clients learn to substitute new ways of thinking for the old ones that led to the addiction in the first place.
The program and therapies we use at The Dunes are holistic, meaning all of our treatment is designed to treat the total person, which includes refocusing the mind, rejuvenating the body and reawakening the spirit. A primary treatment counselor works with each client on an individual basis. Then, weekly meetings with the entire clinical team allow us to evaluate each client’s progress and modify or change the treatment as needed to reach the common goal of the client and team.
Private and Holistic Addiction Treatment
Opportunity is available through our holistic addiction program to access your spiritual awakening through activities such as yoga and meditation. Having a private, quiet place to relax is necessary for optimal addiction recovery. Located in the beautiful East Hamptons of New York, our private estate offers a complete program that treats every aspect of the individual in recovery. Then, when clients leave The Dunes, our program ensures each one gets the support that can only come from a continuing care program that emphasizes structure and accountability.
Our treatment facilities are convenient to Long Island and other major cities in the area, and our staff are here, ready and waiting to design a custom program just for you.
