Meridians Recovery

Meridians Recovery Jim Gross
Meridians Recovery is proud to announce its grand opening on July 1st 2011 as a Recovery Community Organization, or (RCO). This program is ideal for those seeking a peer based residential recovery setting, clients discharging from treatment seeking entry to the recovery community, drug court assignment, court deferment, relapse prevention or reentry to the recovery community after relapse. The goal of treatment has always been to facilitate the clients’ entry into a recovery life style. The best treatment outcomes have always been a result of lengthy stays in long term treatment, three months to a year. Not many people or their insurance companies can afford to pay these sky rocketing fees for services necessary to stave off relapse and gain solid footing in a recovery community of support. For the price of one month at almost any other treatment center you could spend a whole year at Meridians Recovery.

Here at Meridians Recovery, we have an authentic peer-oriented social model program. The first thirty days is our most critical period of recovery. It is at this time we make our greatest inroads in building our recovery foundation. We implement rapid entry into involvement with available pathways to long term successful recovery. We actually begin to instill a genuine desire in the individual to chase their recovery by the example in which we do recover. By this time, the individual should be well on their way in recovery. Through authentic peer-oriented guidance, the individual has a good understanding of what it takes to recover on a daily basis. The longer the individual stays in an authentic peer-oriented system of care, the greater are their chances at full recovery from their substance use disorder.

Mission: Meridians Recovery is a non-profit corporation committed to providing outstanding residential treatment and outpatient recovery services, community awareness and education of related issues, in the Loudoun County, Virginia area. Meridians Recovery maintains an open mindedness of its application of Alternative Medical approaches, focusing on the mind, body and spirit. Meridians Recovery is also committed to making these services affordable so that no one will be turned away on the basis of an inability to pay.

Welcome everyone,

We invite all to explore the possibility of entering, what we feel, is the most successful opportunity to create sustainable change in your life. The Meridians Recovery programs involve a Peer to Peer structured as well as supervised Peer Services approach to recovery. We have trained staff that are sincerely interested in helping you develop a recovery lifestyle and integrate into our recovery community.

We do ask you to search inside yourself to resolve issues whether or not you are ready for a drastic change in your life. Trust me, the rewards are momentous although they do not happen overnight. If you are not serious about recovery it will be better if you look elsewhere. We want to help and you have to work for this. The recovery houses become filled with surrogate family members. Staff is there to provide direction, coaching, assistance and to help keep the house cohesive.

Meridians Run for Recovery

Good morning everyone. I wanted to let you guys know that the 5K-10K expenses are covered so the event should be a rousing success. There are still sponsorship slots open if you know a company or organization who would like some marketing and exposure by being affiliated with a charity like this. We are expecting well over 600 people at this event. The good news is, anything your organization puts in to sponsorship, goes right into the goal of opening up the women's house, 100%.

The bad news is we had to cancel the golf tournament and banquet at Landsdowne Resort. The costs were just too high and we have been unsuccessful in raising enough corporate sponsorship to cover those associated costs.

So we have a great event, have lined up volunteers, have some in-kind, donations already lined up, and registration can be linked from our website or you can go to Capital Race Management, search September 28th and register for the Meridians Run for Recovery. People are already signing up.

STRUCTURED and SUPERVISED SOBER LIVING PROGRAM
Our most utilized program is the supervised sober living program, as a means to reentry after treatment, providing the needed bridge from daily structured treatment and returning home. Many people continue to require assistance entering the local recovery community and implementing recovery principles in everyday life. We provide daily rides to local AA meetings, help in finding an appropriate sponsor, and recovery oriented structure in a genuine Recovery Community Organization sober home with others that are already working a recovery lifestyle.

We had a recent peer at Meridians Recovery that had recently been released from jail. He showed up one day with an open prescription, (no taper protocol), for suboxone. He repeated back to me our policy on opiate withdrawal tapers not maintenance. Two issues, 1 being, if you were just released after two months of jail, you were already clean and needed no withdrawal assistance. The second reason there was an issue is that suboxone is still abuseable. Here is our opiate policy adopted in 2015. I would love to get some comments please.

Most medications are allowable at MR but our opiate and opiate maintenance/withdrawal medication policy was change in 2015 as a direct response to the, as of 2016, opiate crisis/ state health emergency. If you have already been detoxed from opiates you may not be on any opiate medication, no new prescriptions will be allowed. You are however, after staff reviews a doctors detox protocol, allowed to complete a short taper which may be less than 14 days. There are also no benzodiazepines allowed at MR. These are serious medications with sometimes lethal consequences, MR staff hopes to promote a healthy and safe environment for all peers. MR staff hopes to attend a local MAT or MARS training and will review this policy in the near future.

Promoting Social Inclusion
Social exclusion relates to the act or the fear of being discredited or devalued because of a personal attribute. This can keep people from accessing treatment and it may stall the recovery process. Social exclusion remains a persistent problem in mental health services and has its roots in the provider-patient relationship. Professionals and peers can be skeptical of each other’s motives, but they also remain deeply intertwined and share the burden of missed opportunities to develop services that inspire hope, impart skills, and lead to a bright future for people served in behavioral health settings.

One role of the CHWs is to serve as liaisons between communities and healthcare agencies. Peers can help eliminate the social exclusion that surrounds mental health services by serving as a bridge between professionals and consumers. At a local level, peers can help other consumers navigate the healthcare system, accompany consumers to appointments, and help them develop positive relationships with their care providers.
