The Foundational Goals of Our Program
- To provide a safe environment to detox and withdraw in the most comfortable way possible.
- To help clients learn how to self-evaluate and care for all their needs in all eight dimensions of wellness (i.e., physical, emotional, mental, social, environmental, spiritual, occupational, and financial).
- To help identify underlying unresolved trauma & excessive shame – which prohibit the full authentic expression of the healthy Self. We aim to help clients uncover what these unhealed wounds are so that the healing can begin.
- To help clients learn how to build/cultivate long-lasting healthy relationships. We teach how to relate to the world in a healthy manner which includes: communication, boundaries, asserting needs and desires, and problem resolution.
- To help clients build a compassionate relationship with themselves that honors their values & needs.
- To help our clients find/realign themselves with a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
The Treatment Process
During their stay at our facility clients are introduced to healthier lifestyles in a structured and monitored environment in hopes that they will implement any/all of these tools as part of their aftercare plan. The program of course prioritizes safe detoxing and managing of withdrawals, while also psychologically and socially detoxing through trauma-informed, mindfulness-based, family systems, cognitive restructuring, motivational interviewing and somatic therapies.
We also honor ancient practices from around the world including: yoga (physical or asana practice, as well as philosophy); pranayama (breath work to aid in detoxification and rejuvenation); qigong (to transmute stagnant energies and balance out the qi or life energy); and we also bathe our clients in healing songs (in varied languages) and vibrations so as to replenish their cups as we know that they are purging in many ways (physically, energetically, emotionally, etc).
In addition, included in our program is a bi-weekly equine w/ rhythm therapy outing as well as nature walks. We engage loved ones in treatment to solicit their support in the long-term sobriety and healthy supportive relationships for life after treatment. We also expose clients daily to either 12 steps groups or a mindfulness-based peer support called Refuge Recovery. All of this to give our clients the best chance of sustaining their recovery long-term and leading happy and healthy lives with many loved ones to support them.
