PRISE, a Program Designed for Patients who have Relapsed
The path to recovery is unique to each person struggling with addiction. Unfortunately, some following the path to recovery encounter the recurrence of substance use disorder, more commonly referred to as relapse. For some people it takes multiple attempts at recovery, and with each passing attempt they may feel less optimistic about their future. At Recovery Centers of America, we see each attempt at recovery as a sign of commitment and hope. We strongly believe that recurrence of the symptoms of substance use disorder is not a moral failing but is part of a very treatable disease.
A new program at every inpatient Recovery Centers of America location was designed specifically to inspire hope and reconnect patients who experienced a relapse with the road to recovery. This specialized program uses a therapeutic, evidence-based approach for those with whom recovery has been elusive. PRISE, ‘Promoting Recovery through Intensive Support and Education,’ focuses on recovery and a bright future rather than addiction. The 3-4 week program is based on three models:
Relapse Prevention Program
The curriculum of PRISE is designed to reunite patients with their former values. Interactive seminars and individual activities cover multiple topics, inclusive of, but not limited to, the following:

Recurrence of Substance Use Disorder Prevention Groups
Those participating in the PRISE program at each of the Recovery Centers of America inpatient locations will have a strong support system, perhaps unlike one they have ever had before. The seasoned treatment team and program participants will work closely together throughout this 3-4 week program.
Also involved with the program at certain sites are the members of the RCA Alumni Association. Patients will be matched with alumni mentors for face-to-face guidance on moving from the world of addiction into the world of recovery.
Patients will also have the opportunity to help others through community involvement. Live volunteer experiences within and outside RCA, meetings with adolescents in a local adolescent drug treatment program, and attending outside AA and NA meetings are all aspects of this program patients will participate in.
Lastly, RCA’s clinicians realize that just as patients who have relapsed may have lost hope, so too may have their families. Studies have shown that family involvement is a significant ingredient to success on the journey of recovery. Masters-level clinicians at RCA will provide counseling, education and engagement with patients’ families, utilizing the same three clinical principles offered to patients: Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Positive Psychology.
