empowering women for lifetime recovery
What Makes Us Unique?
Addiction doesn’t happen in a bubble. A wide range of factors contribute to substance use disorder. Each client’s treatment includes psychiatric evaluation to best treat the whole woman standing in front of us. We empower each client to make the best choices for their own mental health care now and in the future. The Next Door has multiple psychiatric providers in-house to treat co-occurring disorders as well as master’s level/licensed clinicians at every level of care.
Women with substance use issues may find themselves in need of additional behavioral health services and counseling to deal with psychiatric disorders that complicate their addiction issues. At The Next Door, we provide psychiatric services for these co-occurring disorders, ensuring that our clients can receive a full spectrum of care. Our multidisciplinary staff utilizes a variety of therapy modalities to help clients cope with life stressors and past trauma that can impede the recovery process.
As a faith-based organization, we strive to follow Jesus’ model of serving others with compassion and without judgment. TND was founded on prayer and operates on Christ-centered principles, creating a spacious environment for clients to explore their spirituality. We aim to foster a healing environment through an outpouring of compassion and acceptance that allows clients to nurture their faith.
While in treatment, our clients have a variety of opportunities to intentionally focus on their spiritual well-being.
Spiritual Wellness Group
All residential clients are expected to attend this Wednesday evening group, which is led by the chaplain. In a large group setting, clients explore a story from scripture and connect the sacred story with their own recovery journey in a small group setting.
Spirituality in Recovery Group
Therapists assign clients to this group based on their treatment plan goals. This group is offered twice weekly and is led by the chaplain.
Clients can schedule individual appointments with the chaplain for additional spiritual guidance and prayer.
Each client receives a Bible in their welcome bag. When donors make it possible, we provide each client with a copy of The Life Recovery Bible — a resource that helps clients make vital connections between recovery and spirituality.
Clients have the opportunity to attend optional guided meditations each week led by staff or trained volunteers.
Client Meditation Room
Clients can spend time alone in our client meditation room, a quiet space to pray, reflect, and practice yoga.
Bible Study and Prayer
Clients have the opportunity to attend optional Bible studies and prayer experiences each week led by staff or trained volunteers.
Addiction does not discriminate, but women face a unique set of psychological and physiological challenges on their journey to sobriety. Above all else, every client needs to find a treatment program that fits her needs. Feeling safe, welcome, and comfortable is imperative to a successful recovery.
Shame around substance use during pregnancy is often a barrier for mothers seeking treatment. However, a lack of prenatal care should not exclude women from accessing treatment services. We offer priority admissions to pregnant women to avoid additional complications to the mother and baby’s health. While at TND, our staff helps women to focus on having a healthy pregnancy by offering prenatal care and transporting them to all OBGYN appointments. Additionally, our treatment plan offers specialty programing about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, newborn care, parenting classes, and postpartum care to prepare them for sobriety through motherhood.
TYPES OF ADDICTIONS WE TREAT
Regardless of your substance(s) of choice, TND’s tailor-made treatment model can help you achieve lifelong recovery. We understand that each client has a different set of needs, and we are equipped to provide affordable, quality care. As new drugs emerge in our community, our licensed clinicians are trained in new trends and adapt care as needed.
Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and pain relievers which are available legally by prescription, such as oxycodone, morphine, and others. According to Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) more than 130 people die each day from opioid-related drug overdoses. In fact, Tennessee is the state with the third highest overdose rate in the country, with 75-80% of overdoses involving fentanyl. Access to affordable treatment is critical for fighting this epidemic.
The difference between a causal drinker and someone with an alcohol use disorder can be difficult to identify. Binge drinking, severe mood changes, and hiding drinking are some signs of an alcohol use disorder. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), historically, alcohol withdrawal symptoms (AWS) have a 15% mortality rate. With appropriate care, that drops to 3%. Safely detoxing from alcohol use can be extremely dangerous and should be done with the care of medical professionals.
Many believe that prescription pills are safer than illegal drugs, but that is not inherently true. When prescription drugs are abused, they can be just as dangerous as any other substance. Commonly misused prescriptions may include Benzodiazepines, Valium, and Xanax. Individuals using their prescriptions outside of medical advice may be struggling with a substance use disorder and should find treatment for assistance to avoid further addictions.
Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug that is often referred to as a ‘party drug’. However, short-term or long-term use of this substance can lead to a wide range of health issues including insomnia, heart attacks, strokes and even death. Additionally, fentanyl is frequently added to this substance making it even more deadly.
Amphetamines are psychostimulant drugs, meaning they speed up the messages travelling between the brain and the body. Methamphetamine is known to cause extreme paranoia and hallucinations as well as confusions, aggression and potentially violent behavior. It is highly recommended that anyone detoxing from this substance seek professional treatment.
Although medical prescriptions are available in some states, once marijuana is used outside of medical advice an individual can develop an addiction. Someone withdrawing from marijuana may experience anxiety, inability to sleep, depression or a lack of appetite.
From designer drugs and hallucinogens to ZaZa and Kratom, TND’s tailor-made treatment model can help you achieve lifelong recovery. Our expert staff and licensed clinicians have extensive knowledge of commonly abused drugs and stay up to date on new substance trends to best serve our clients.
