Future Program DevelopmentsHeartland House has recently added Journey to Wholeness: Return to Be, a mindfulness program component to its program to teach residents lifelong techniques to address stress and trauma. Research shows this is a key long-term tool to preventing relapse. Please see the link to the Journey to Wholeness page above. The approach of Heartland House is to create a successful course of treatment which combines therapies, services, and methods to produce favorable outcomes. Each piece of our multidimensional model helps men address their unique “addiction triggers” such as medical and psychological factors and helps them strengthen “supporting factors” such as employment and family ties. Each program component was selected to give every man the best chance to become clean and sober and become resilient against relapse.
Our mission is to serve men recovering from substance use disorder and related co-occurring conditions. Our overall goals are to provide a living environment conducive to continued recovery, conduct an educational program that helps the newly recovering alcoholic/addict establish a long-term support system, and generate attitudes that enhance self-sufficiency, self-worth and an ongoing quality of life.
