LeeAnn and Cyd have served in the Captive Hearts Recovery Program for over 10 years. Since 2013, they have been operating as the Executive Program Directors. This includes interviewing, screening, assessments, intakes, management of all clients and oversight of both houses. They are also responsible for choosing and implementing curriculum for the psycho educational groups as well as Bible studies. They are passionate and have hearts of compassion and empathy for the women they serve. Both are licensed Addiction Specialists. Currently, they are working towards obtaining their Clinical Supervisory Certification through CADTP.
Captive Hearts Recovery Program is an intensive faith-based, 12-step drug/alcohol recovery residence, (sober living). The length of this program lasts from six months to one year. Our clients attend 12-step meetings every day during the week, work two hours per week with a personal sponsor and attend psychoeducational groups each day such as Boundary Setting, Grief Recovery, Anger Management, Seeking Safety, Women’s Recovery Journal and Genesis Relapse Prevention during the week. Clients also have a computer class taught by an instructor from Allan Hancock College who helps with basic computer skills, online courses for GEDs, resumes or anything the client may need. In addition, clients receive personal counseling and goal setting with Licensed Drug & Alcohol Counselors and may see an LMFT as well. As clients near graduation, we offer an employment specialist to assist with school, resumes, interviews, grants beyond FAFSA and other individual needs concerning life beyond our program.
Most clients have trauma that needs to be addressed and processed in order to maintain sobriety. When dealing with abuse issues, studies show that group processing for women, without the presence of men, is significantly more effective. In our groups and individual sessions, we provide instruction and skill development using cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care. We have experience in Crisis Intervention and Co-Occurring Disorders.
Upon graduation of the 6 to 12-month program, Captive Hearts provides continued support for our clients with their lead counselor and the Accountability Support Team that the client has built while in the program.
Optional: We have a transition home for clients who have graduated from the program and who meet the requirements to live there. We provide support that includes regular meetings with the lead counselor and with the accountability team. We also provide random drug/alcohol testing while they integrate back into the community.
