The Sanare Today Approach

What can you expect?

When a person comes for their initial meeting, a level of care assessment will be completed. This means that in a collaborative fashion the individual and the staff at Sanare will come up with a plan for what is needed for the individual to feel better. If recommended, the individual will be admitted to Sanare. If not, referral sources will be provided for the type of treatment recommended.

Each individual admitted to Sanare will attend four group therapies per week. Each group will be 2 and ¼ hours. A family/support session will be provided every other week for one and a half hours. Treatment planning will include arranging individual services as needed with other community providers such as acupuncture, yoga, 12-step group, physical therapy, nutrition counseling, pain management, personal training, etc. An individual will attend 18 group sessions on average. Prior to completing Sanare, the individual will be scheduled for after care services (individual therapist, psychiatrist, aftercare/support group, etc…).

Below are some scenarios of individuals who come to Sanare Today:

D.J. recently went through a divorce and a, “reorganization” at work. Nothing seems to be going right. While getting ready for work and dreading it, D.J. was questioning the point of going on. He loves his kids but just feels exhausted from the stressors in his life.

M.L. recently left college on a medical withdrawal. She was struggling with getting work done, trouble in attending classes consistently, and feeling overwhelmed. If the work couldn’t be perfect, it didn’t get done or was done at the last possible moment. M.L. avoided interactions with roommates, ate alone and slept most of the time.

S.T. has been drinking on and off for several years. Recently, he slept through his alarm and didn’t make it to a meeting in which he was presenting. He apologized profusely to his boss who eventually understood and accepted the apology. Just the other day S.T. called out of work because he was feeling “sick”. Now his boss emailed him saying he would like to meet tomorrow to discuss some things.

B.D. was recently in a 30-day residential program for substance abuse. While there, B.D. opened up for the first time about a childhood trauma at the age of 10. Now B.D. is being discharged and needs help staying clean and sober but also needs tools and strategies to manage the trauma that was recently disclosed.
