IV. Life Coaching and Coping Skills
The stressors of life can be hard enough. When chronic pain is also an issue, Life can be overwhelming.
Compassion care has 3 levels of counseling
Tier I Counseling is ministerial counseling available to our patients when life gets overwhelming. Physical Pain is worse when there is emotional pain that is not dealt with.
Tier II Counseling is with our psychologist or LCSW. This level of counseling is available for our patients who have misused or abused the medications, but are willing to do what is necessary to stay in our program.
Tier II Counseling is out patient addiction counseling by a certified addictionologist. When a patient is on Tier II and fails to stay in compliance, we may either discharge the patient or send the patient to Tier III.
