HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
At Mirror, we believe in two essential truths that influence our approach. One is that you can’t force someone to change. You can force compliance, but change comes from within. The other is that you are capable of change. You may not believe it yet, but if you’re here, reading this, we believe we can help.
Every individual is different, so we tailor a program to meet the multiple needs of each individual in order to maximize the chances of success. This includes helping to remove obstacles to the individual’s success, be they legal, medical, transportation related, childcare, etc.
We empower our participants to make positive choices through a cognitive based approach in which we assist our participants in selecting specific strategies to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behavior.
When you participate in a treatment program with Mirror, you help determine which behaviors you will address. We design a program that offers you the greatest opportunity for success, through skill development that focuses on your strengths and gives you the tools to change your own behaviors. Whether you are working one-on-one with a counselor, attending group sessions or discussing your goals with a support group, you will find the Mirror approach results in positive change.
A senior moment
A senior citizen in our Social Detox program said he wanted to leave and go back to his apartment across the street. We convinced him to stay for at least Intermediate care so we could try to help with the addiction to alcohol.
The extra effort
A young lady came to Mirror Residential in Newton. She is a type II diabetic and she did not have insurance or medications. Her medications are expensive and Mirror was not able to pay for them for her. We had contacted Health Ministries to see if they could help and they did not have any appointments until the next week.
Jack came in for his intake session still shaking and trembling from withdrawal from alcohol. He was barely able to sign his name and was tearful as he told his story. He told of how he had been sober for 4 years but had relapsed 2 years ago and was unable to stop drinking on his own. He had lost his job, home and his family and was on the verge of drinking himself to death.
