1Who Will Benefit from the Programs Offered at Harmony Place?
We specialize in working with clients who have been self-destructive, out of control, addictive, or anxious and depressed. Once such behavior has come under some voluntary control, outpatient work can be beneficial. Most commonly, our program can serve as a Step Down for clients graduating from residential treatment but not yet confident in their recovery, or clients whose symptoms have ceased but whose transition requires continuing relapse prevention and life skills. We work closely with our clients and answer any questions they may have.

For a significant number of clients, the transition from residential to outpatient entails too much responsibility too soon with little support or structure. A person in outpatient treatment needs extra support — more than 1 or 2 hour sessions per week — to effect any lasting changes. Our program is designed for such individuals. It provides focus on deeper issues while giving support and structure that will minimize relapse.
5What are the Deeper Issues?
Most psychotherapy begins with symptoms stabilization, typically involving many cognitive behavioral tools. In many cases, for symptoms containment to last, the function of the symptom must be understood. How did it come into being? What protective function might it serve based on past experiences? Understanding the “value” of the symptom is critical to the continuing recovery process. Learn More
6What Triggers Continue to Cause Relapse?
Sometimes even in strong recovery, circumstances involving career, relationships, sexuality, loneliness, social isolation, attention deficit issues, difficulty with executive function, or specific fears or reactivity related to new challenges can trigger relapse. Rehearsing new skills as well as less destructive ways of thinking are critical for recovery. When appropriate clients are helped to find places to live, outpatient therapist, friendships, social activities and appropriate dating skills and eventually either get back in school or find a good job.

7Why Do We Need Support?
Often an inability to be intimate and connect adequately or appropriately contributes to relapse. Learning what one does to block appropriate connection and remain alone, and rehearsing how to relate effectively is facilitated by living in an environment with others who are engaged in a similar process of growth, learning and recovery.
