Research tells us that individuals who complete treatment
have a far greater chance of sustained recovery success if
they stay linked to a recovery support program. FavorSA has recently
added Recovery Support Programs to the continuum of
care as a way to assist individuals and families in actively working
a recovery plan and to provide long term recovery support.
Our programs augment existing addiction treatment
programs and focus on developing and expanding people’s strengths
and capacities and emphasizes autonomy and skills development.
The purposes of our services is to extent – not duplicate, replace,
or compete with – important services already available.
Our programs are highly structured and ensure the successful re-integration
of our clients into society. They are designed to promote a sense of
self-worth, community connectedness, & quality of life—all
important factors in sustaining recovery from alcohol and drug use
Our Programs help individuals to sustain their recovery after the
formal addiction treatment has been completed through consultation,
skills training, and hands on peer support.
Our objective is to help our clients achieve and
sustain recovery through the transfer of experiential knowledge and
experiential expertise by peers and through our roles as recovery guide,
truth-teller, role model and mentor. Peers assist with the transition
from treatment to long term recovery, and help clients deal with issues
of spirituality, emotions, stigma, acceptance, and occupational sectors
of their lives.
Evidence has shown that an ongoing peer relationship
helps to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses,
or organizations while advancing their recovery. Peer support models
affirms that there is innate health and wellness in each of us and
a steadfast belief in the power of human potential. Peers support peers
to take responsibility for their own healing process. Our focus is
solution based with emphasis on the here and now and what you can do
today to move forward.
Peers further assist one another and their families
to develop sobriety-based rituals of daily living, rebuilding lives,
healing families, repairing communities and self-sufficiency restored. We
focus on establishing goals and developing a community support system
while enjoying quality of life, balance and holistic wellness. Through
peer support we are able to sustain great and meaningful lives.
In groups we choose to focus on the present, reframing
negativity, using de-triangulation techniques, opening up closed systems
and working with boundaries and alliances.
Our program is delivered through the following settings:
Individual Coaching & mentoring where a
one-on-one relationship is formed with the client;
Relapse Prevention Group where the focus is on
identifying triggers and teaching appropriate skills;
Life Skill Groups where issues such as
motivation and self-esteem,
responsible decision making,
social engagement and

are explored and peer support provided.
Spiritual Support Group. During the group process
clients are coached to adopt positive values and principles, identifying
a sense of purpose, and helped to achieve and maintain serenity and
peace of mind. An introduction to breathing and meditation techniques
are also taught.
Group. Topics that are addressed
include Medical Aspects of Chemical Dependency, Stages of Family
