Retorno offers a therapeutic program tailored to support each client. At Retorno, we address each person’s unique experiences, needs, and goals. Individual therapy sessions are complemented by group therapy, offering clients the opportunity to enjoy both one-on-one counseling and peer support.
Psychoeducation is a key component of Retorno’s therapeutic program. Psychoeducation refers to the process of providing education and information to those receiving mental health services. At Retorno, we help clients understand their own experiences, explaining what we are doing in therapy.
Many people with a mental health condition have surprisingly little knowledge about their diagnosis and what to expect in therapy. Psychoeducation, in contrast, helps people understand what their diagnosis means and the most effective ways to treat it. It has been shown that people who have a thorough grasp of the challenges they are facing, along with an understanding of their internal and external resources, are better able to overcome their difficulties. Additionally, they are more likely to view their illnesses as treatable conditions rather than shameful diagnoses, resulting in a higher rate of compliance with therapy.
Community living encourages a greater awareness of the needs of others. Frequently, addicts find themselves in a selfish bubble, focused solely on having their own needs met. Well-meaning family members, friends, and addiction facilities will often exacerbate this by catering to the addict’s every whim. When these addicts don’t get their needs met, they may feel that they cannot function properly.
At Retorno, we recognize that a crucial step towards healing involves assuming responsibility for yourself. Community living gets people out of the “me” focus and enables them to see beyond their own needs. This prepares addicts for living with others after they leave Retorno.
The outdoors, a natural environment
In addition to community living, the outdoor living environment at Retorno fosters personal accountability and a healthy life balance. Instead of the distractions of everyday society, which enable addicts to hyper-focus on their own needs, a more natural/outdoors environment helps Retorno participants focus on their genuine needs for friendship and healthy energy outlets. This healthier focus enables addicts to achieve and maintain a full recovery.
