Baker House Philosophy
Alcoholism and drug addiction is a disease that is progressive that affects all areas of a person’s life and often co-occurs with problems like depression, anxiety and trauma. It can affect anyone, regardless of race, gender, socio-economic background, or age. Becoming addicted can happen to anyone! Baker House provides a nonjudgmental approach and is sensitive to the unique needs of individuals recovering from alcohol and drug dependency while at the same time holding individuals accountable in order to effectively make change. Baker House stresses the changes in thinking and behavior that come from acceptance of personal responsibility for one’s own recovery. Areas worked on include learning more about alcoholism and addiction, identifying how drinking and using drugs has affected all aspects of life, finding ways to repair some of the damage, discovering ways to remain clean and sober to stop the cycle of addiction, and minimize the future effects it will have on them and their families.
The program involves evidenced based practices with an emphasis on stages of change, motivational enhancement, cognitive behavioral change, relapse prevention planning, and individual, group, and family counseling. Most individuals stay at Baker House for two to three months based upon individual progress and needs. We are used to working with individuals with meth problems, co-occurring disorders, and individuals in the criminal justice system. Many of our individuals are mothers and Fathers whose children are temporarily in the custody of DHS and therefore, we are willing to become a part of that multidisciplinary team.
