The Dedication and Determination of Staff at Driftwood

The Dedication and Determination of Staff at Driftwood

A care team must have the flexibility and experience to cope with unexpected challenges. Clients rely on staff to help them navigate whatever circumstances they encounter during treatment. Studies have shown that during treatment, "every problem can have many solutions and . . . the input and ideas of colleagues lead to creative approaches." The staff at Driftwood Recovery are dedicated to encouraging clients and one another. The team works together to create a supportive and nurturing environment for individuals in recovery.

Staff at Driftwood Practice Empathy and Transparency

Dedication and determination ensure staff members at Driftwood Recovery react appropriately to any challenges they encounter. Every care team member practices empathy, transparency, and honesty. By openly communicating needs and expectations, staff members reduce the risk of miscommunication with clients and coworkers. The staff members at Driftwood Recovery dive deep into each client's care to ensure they provide every individual with the most relevant and appropriate level of care.

Reacting With Grace When Things Do Not Go to Plan

Every client will have some form of complication or face an unexpected challenge, and the care team must help them navigate those moments. Staff members are trained to recognize and manage potential issues without negatively impacting the client's recovery.

Some challenges staff may encounter when working with clients include:

  • Intermittent attendance
  • Severe mental health symptoms
  • Disruptive behaviors
  • Quiet and withdrawn clients
  • Trust issues
  • Violence or aggression
  • Relapse
  • Ambivalence about treatment

Everyone responds differently to stressors, conflict, and uncomfortable interactions. Driftwood Recovery encourages staff to remain curious and nonjudgmental when interacting with clients. Finding positive ways to reframe situations and using potential obstacles as learning moments help clients and staff grow. Studies have shown that "[I]dentifying and overcoming barriers that discourage the client from engaging in treatment" improves the effectiveness of rehabilitation programs.

Staff at Driftwood Prioritize Client Safety and Comfort

Client safety, comfort, and privacy are essential to the recovery process. People are more likely to engage more fully in their treatment if they feel secure and supported through every step of the process.

Clients have access to a wide range of services and program features, including:

  • Case management
  • Alternative holistic therapies, including acupuncture and yoga
  • Personalized treatment planning
  • Referrals to outside services
  • Medication management
  • Pain Clinic
  • Aftercare planning

The dedicated care team ensures these services enhance the client's overall experience, improving outcomes and creating a positive environment for healing. Each staff member has unique skills and training to ensure clients experience a well-rounded treatment program. Driftwood Recovery understands that every client has different expectations for recovery and different preferences during treatment. Staff members accommodate whenever possible to ensure clients feel safe and comfortable.

Adapting Treatment Plans to Client Needs

Everyone responds differently to treatment. Tailoring therapeutic modalities to each client's specific needs and preferences ensures they feel heard, valued, and respected. According to the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, personalized medicine and care plans "improve overall treatment efficacy by targeting particular treatments to those individuals most likely to benefit." Personalized treatment programs build trust between clients and staff, reduce stress, and encourage greater engagement in recovery. Tailored care plans also make it easier for staff to adjust treatments as needed to meet client recovery goals or address unexpected complications.

Personalized treatment plans make it easier for the care team to do the following:

  • Monitor trends in mental and physical health
  • Adjust the treatment plan as needed
  • Track progress on specific recovery goals
  • Ensure the client feels heard and understood
  • Address issues unique to each client
  • Prepare clients for aftercare and long-term recovery

Individualized plans allow the care team to dig deeper and help clients identify and process the root causes of addictive behaviors.

Driftwood Recovery identifies factors affecting recovery that other programs may have missed. Clients achieve greater self-awareness and self-confidence as they learn to recognize and process issues impacting their day-to-day lives and long-term recovery. According to the Journal of Substance Use and Addiction Treatment, clients "tend to utilize treatment and support services more in SUD treatment clinics that practice and emphasize patient-centered care."

Facing Challenges Head-On

Experienced and determined staff members are not afraid to face challenges head-on by doing the following:

  • Consulting with experts in addiction recovery
  • Providing clients with additional resources and education
