Shane's Crib is a 12 month residential program that is composed of a 3 phase process, with evaluations for Rizpah House Transitional Home.
We have carefully planned the schedule so the needs of the residents are met in a manner that will allow them to be bridged back into society. We provide an environment where these sisters, daughters, wives, and mothers can begin to feel worthy and loved again. Teaching them how to allow Jesus to be the ultimate authority in their lives. Spirituality plays a huge role in gaining ground against the disease. In order to be connected with God you must first surrender. Absolute surrender includes a radical change in behavior and the persons belief system. One has to admit powerlessness against the disease and adopt the belief system that there is one who can help, and his name is Jesus Christ. One must be willing to turn all of your cares over to him on a daily basis in order to remain in permanent recovery. Healing will follow with absolute surrender. Through spiritual maturity we learn to "Let Go and Let God!"
The foundation of the program is based on developing a personal relationship with Jesus. The education of addiction and recovery is broken down into a three phase process. We are also a work program, with the residents going to work at 90-180 days to full time employment.
Shane's Crib offers support groups, therapy groups, and individual counseling with pastoral counselors and addiction counselors.
Life Skills Meetings are held weekly to allow residents to deal with personal issues. Interactions between residents are highly encouraged; it also provides residents with an opportunity for learning more about the way they interact with others. Life Skills Meetings are a safe environment in which residents work to establish a level of trust that allows them to talk personally and honestly. Upon request, individual meetings with staff are always available.
Recovery Bible Meetings take The Serenity Prayer ("God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.") and apply it to our lives. Residents learn more about the Bible, how to pray more effectively, and more about the 12 Steps and how to walk them.
Boundary Meetings are held weekly to teach the residents how to set healthy boundaries in relationships. The purpose of having boundaries is to protect and take care of ourselves. We need to be able to tell other people when they are acting in ways that are not acceptable to us. A first step is starting to know that we have a right to protect and defend ourselves that we have not only the right, but the duty to take responsibility for how we allow others to treat us.
Attendance at outside AA and NA meetings weekly expose the resident to a social network of recovery-specific support. By introducing AA and NA meetings, residents can experience working with a sponsor, begin working the 12-steps of AA or NA from day 1. Attending AA and NA meetings, residents have an outlet upon re-entering society to seek recovery-specific support and sober events.
The most successful movement in history for bringing about recovery is Alcoholics Anonymous. AA has offered wisdom, simple power to change lives and great compassion for the alcoholic. Shane's Crib includes seven led support groups on location and we require a minimum of two AA/NA groups weekly for participants in the recovery programs.
Education about the 12-Step program, Alcoholics Anonymous and completion of step assignments are integral to our chemical dependency program.
Women are expected to obtain a sponsor and complete all steps, in detail during their stay with us.
Psycho-Ed Meetings is to educate the residents on awareness about the behavioral, medical, and psychological consequences of substance abuse. Outside activity, such as Softball, Walking, & Gym, Bowling, inside games, etc., is scheduled to allow the residents to experience fun! This opportunity for exercise and development afford appropriate outlets for energy and orients the residents to alternative means to have fun in recovery.
provide residents that have suffered loss of a loved one or severe trauma from different aspects of their lives to be in a safe and open group setting environment. This opportunity allows the resident to associate their feelings of sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, pain and anger with other residents. This process is to promote inner healing and acceptance.
Parenting groups help relieve residents of the self-blame and guilt that they experience, work on empowering them as well as preparing them for what to expect throughout the process of recovery and being a mom.
these groups allow you to see others coping with similar challenges and hear their personal stories of failures and success. Our classes focus on learning specific skills and ways of thinking to cope with anger.
Chapel Services are provided, at Shane's Crib to begin exposing the residents to a worship experience. Holding worship services provide a safe environment for confidentiality and freedom of expression. This method of worship has proven to be beneficial in allowing the residents to begin a new understanding of a loving God, worthy of praise. We also believe in laying on of hands and walking through deliverance of hurts, hang ups and habits.
Personal Quite Time, Devotion, & Church is required of each resident. These activities are on the schedule. It enables the residents to begin disciplining self to the need _ to be exposed to God's Word daily. The time given to this activity provides proof of the Holy Spirit at work. We are non-denominational, but our home church is a Church of God.
Residents who truly seek change, find peace and strength through the Holy Spirit and spiritual transformation is self-evident!
Residential Community (House Meetings) is a gathering of all the residents and is a process that allows them to express their feelings, deal with conflict, and/or deal with personality issues. Problem solving and acceptance are applicable in community. The long-term outcome for the residents is communication skills.
The residents form what we call a therapeutic community. This group becomes the primary agent for change during your stay at Shane's Crib. Living in a therapeutic community will be a new experience for you.
You will have the opportunity to help develop a caring and safe environment in which to address personal issues regarding your recovery. Initially, most new residents are anxious about their surroundings and the people in their community. It takes about two weeks to adjust and begin to feel a part of the group. As a member of the community, you are urged to express your needs and expectations. In turn, the other residents will also be open and direct about communicating with you. As you progress in your recovery, you will become more trusting and your conversations to be more open and honest.
The community is responsible for confronting an individual about whom they are concerned. Failure on the part of the community to accept their responsibility results in members engaging in a conspiracy of silence. When this occurs, you may be discharged. Once conflicts are resolved they must be brought to the community meeting with staff present. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to notify your resident staff person or contact the on call staff member.
