Introductory Phase (Motivational Track)
CRCI’s motivational track is designed to assist qualified residents to bridge the gap from normal living into to the residential treatment program's heavily structured environment. It is our goal that in the early stages of recovery residents can successfully acclimate to a heavily structured environment with more ease by first going through a less intense, residential transition period that will further prepare them for more intensive residential treatment. The Motivational track serves as an introductory phase to the program by offering a less rigorous schedule and more room for residents to acclimate themselves to the infrastructure of the program. Residents will need to show they have achieved certain goals such as, but not limited to: proper adherence to policy and procedure, an appropriate response to authority, and a willingness to receive and apply new information both in recovery and daily living. Residents must show significant improvement in these areas before the resident will be considered for transition into the treatment program. When criteria for program entry is fulfilled and a bed is available residents will be eligible to move out of the introductory phase and into phase I of the residential program.
Phase I of the Program
During the first four weeks of our program our aim is to provide a structured environment for spiritual growth. BCRC does not offer conventional drug and alcohol treatment. Our program is designed to encourage recovery by developing a relationship with Jesus Christ and working the 12-step program. We have proposed a continuous plan of action that incorporates recovery theory into long-term daily living. Residents will work with sponsors and and group leaders to learn how to do a moral inventory, confession of shortcomings, restitution for harm done, and service to others.
Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.
Phase II of the Program
After completion of the initial four weeks, each resident will be reviewed by staff and senior residents. The areas of review will include spiritual growth, personal responsibility, compliance with rules and regulations, trust, willingness, and active recovery. These areas will be addressed to determine where additional improvement is needed and to determine if the resident will be approved to move into Phase II of the program. In phase II, residents will begin to take on more responsibility and will have plenty of opportunities to begin building more trust with the leadership.
Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act. Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.
Phase III of the Program
The BCRC program now offers an additional six-week period called Phase III. During this time each resident will have an opportunity to spend more time growing as as leader and developing their exit strategy to encourage a heightened sense of confidence in their recovery. We know that initializing a well-planned “follow through” is very important to implement all that you have learned during our program into the rest of your life.
Traditional leadership generally involves the accumulation and exercise of power by one at the “top of the pyramid.” By comparison, the servant-leader shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. We teach and encourage the men to have a servant leadership attitude.
Our hope is that they will successfully be able to share what experience in active recovery they have had so far with another person. We believe that the student doesn’t truly learn the lesson until he becomes the teacher.
