Program Expectations:

  • The goal is NOT to ace astrophysics, but instead to get back into a routine, establishing accountability and responsibility for the student and allowing the brain to gradually acclimate to the learning process. It is about boosting self-esteem and self-worth of the client by successfully starting and FINISHING something (which many have not done in some time).
  • The student will learn in a highly structured environment with the support of an individual tutor that will meet with him/her weekly. He/she will be mandated to attend 3 study groups a week proctored by the tutor.

  • The case managers and tutor will know the students syllabus and class to aid in keeping the student accountable.
  • Life Skills and Study Skills groups will be mandatory for the student to attend to help reintegrate him/her into life. The life skills group will focus on topics such as time management, budgeting, social skills, decision making, job interviewing, resume writing etc. The study skills group helps students learn effective tools to learn from organizational skills, how to avoid procrastination, dealing and coping with a learning impairment, time management, writing skills etc.
  • The academy offers Career Assessment Inventory Testing to help the student narrow and focus their areas of interest to help them develop goals for possible career choices and areas of study for college or trade schools.

Benefits Of Education While In Treatment

Getting sober and navigating treatment is not easy. Incorporating alternative activities into life without substances is a huge help in the process. Yoga and meditation are great ways to get in touch with the body and soul. Learning new coping skills helps when a craving or a trigger come up and activities like art therapy and equine therapy offer other ways to get to know yourself, your past and your pain.

Attending classes for either the completion of a high school diploma, a GED, a Drug & Alcohol Counseling Certification or working toward a college degree stretches your mind even more. Your dedication to completing what you started is also a reason to continue your success in rehab, and your long-term recovery afterwards.

Speaking with a career counselor and even discussing your future plans with your individual counselor while in treatment, can solidify the goals you have for yourself. Nothing needs to be set in stone, but when you are working toward something, you have more reason to do well in rehab.

Sovereign Health Group

Our treatment team uses a bio-psycho-social model of treatment, meaning all aspects of your needs are accurately assessed and addressed. Our main goal is to is to provide high quality, focused, individualized treatment to those seeking help while maintaining the highest levels of skill and ethics. Sovereign Health Group’s ability to offer Sovereign Academy is because of the staff’s dedication to the overall needs of each and every client.

To determine what academic track is right for you in order to receive the best help possible, the treatment planning process begins with an identification of all underlying issues of distress that have led you to chemicals and various forms of destructive behavior. Your individual treatment plan then integrates life-changing experiences that facilitate your rebirth. Your sense of self and purpose, plus your perceived personal value and power and what is possible in your future, are rekindled, repaired and raised to new levels.

Our planning staff works from a variety of methods and types of treatment, including the medical model, cognitive behavioral, social model and one-to-one therapy. We tailor a unique program to each individual, again, after a careful assessment process, because our experience has taught us that every patient is different and therefore has a very different set of needs. Our unique approach has made us one of the most popular dual diagnosis treatment centers in the great state of California.

Each rehab patient’s journey at Sovereign Health Group begins with a sensitive acceptance and respect for his or her uniqueness which includes a comprehensive look at how an education can positively impact your time with us.
