Individual Therapy Sessions, three times a week
Every patient will meet with their primary therapist a minimum of three times a week for an individual therapy session. During these sessions, our masters-level clinicians will work with patients to address any challenges they may be facing in recovery and provide the patient with effective coping strategies.
Group Therapy Sessions
Our Group Therapy Sessions are lead by trained professionals, and allow a patient to discuss their feelings and challenges in relation to recovery, among his or her peers. Group therapy can be especially helpful to people in recovery, as it helps create a sense of community and bonding. Often times, patients forge powerful friendships, as they discuss their feelings of vulnerability – and find that they are not alone in how they feel.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective way of treating drug and alcohol addiction. CBT works to challenge much of the problematic thinking that may have caused someone to start using drug and alcohol. It introduces new ways of looking at a problem, so that, when no longer in inpatient treatment, patients have the tools and skills necessary to combat cravings and triggers.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a more specialized form of CBT that challenges negative and self-destructive thinking and teaches an individual not to give in to those negative thoughts. For example, if a patient in recovery experiences a negative emotion, like loneliness, their first thought may be to turn to drugs or alcohol, in DBT a patient would learn to instead do something more constructive- such as exercise.
Immersive 12-Step Programming
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are organizations are both effective and prevalent. We ensure that all of our patients are immersed in our 12-Step Programming, we find that this helps them seamlessly transition into NA and AA in their area upon leaving our facility. Many people in recovery find AA and NA to be vital support groups that help keep them on track – even in the most challenging of times.
We understand that some patients who enter our facility may have a cooccurring mental health disorder as well and we provide psychiatric care for those patients. Our team of psychiatrists will oversee their treatment as well as manage any necessary medications to ensure the best possible treatment of both the mental health disorder and substance use disorder.
Interactive, Skills-based Workshops
We offer a range of workshops daily that patients can attend based on their personal interests or obstacles. Many of our workshops help position patients for success in after care, such as nutrition coaching, resume building and financial planning. We arm our patients with a wealth of knowledge, so that upon leaving our facility they feel prepared with the tools necessary to handle any obstacle.
Art & Music Therapy
Art & Music Therapy can be a calming way for patients to deal with anxiety, grief and trauma. We also use Art & Music Therapy as a way to remind patients of activities they did while sober and help reinvigorate that creative spirit.
All of our patients and their families are strongly encouraged to participate in our weekly Family Therapy sessions. During these sessions, our clinicians work with patients and their families to heal family dynamics and develop healthy communication and relationships that can act as a solid support system during patients’ long-term recovery.
Diet, Nutrition & Wellness Coaching
Many experts now believe that diet and nutrition is just as important to mental health and wellbeing as it is to physical health, which is why we require all of our patients participate in diet, nutrition and wellness coaching. Patients will learn how to make healthy food choices, what constitutes a balanced diet, as well as how to cook some simple yet healthy meals.
Mindfulness & Meditation
Often times, many overwhelming thoughts and feelings can overcome someone struggling with addiction, especially in early recovery – mindfulness and meditation can help patients cope with this in a healthy way. Mindfulness helps people focus on the present moment- shutting out distractions and can be taught through mindfulness and meditation coaching.
Yoga is not only a great way to get exercise but is also an effective means of practicing mindfulness and meditation. We offer weekly yoga sessions that patients can participate in voluntarily.
We work hard to accommodate all of our patients spiritual and religious beliefs and offer spiritual services that patients can attend. One of the key elements of the 12-Steps is the belief in a higher power- we make sure that spiritual services are easily accessible for all of our patients.
Specialized Therapy for Co-Occurring Disorders
For patients who have a co-occurring mental health disorder as well as a substance use disorder we offer specialized therapy. Some of our therapy programs include treatment for:
- Eating Disorders
“Our drug and alcohol treatment programs are clinically built and structured with one goal in mind – to position patients for long-term success on the road to recovery.”
