Rehabilitation: Innovative and Research Driven Services


Individual Therapy

Each patient is assigned a primary counselor, who is responsible for facilitating treatment and working with him/her on a personal treatment plan. These plans take into consideration the diversity, culture and needs of each patient.

Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative effort between the counselor and patient to spark motivation and initiate change. Motivational interviewing builds on the optimism of human strength, with a goal-oriented partnership that fosters on building the tools necessary for long term recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is woven throughout our program and is utilized extensively in individual sessions. CBT provides the necessary learning and resources to challenge maladaptive ways of thinking, and to develop new ways of being.

Relapse Prevention is an important key to lasting recovery. Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention, as well as education on refusal skills, identifying triggers, and dealing with cravings are used to strengthen a patient’s resiliency and coping strategies.

Peer Support Patients participate in 12-Step groups, SMART recovery and home groups designed to build support and accountability throughout the treatment process.

Clinicians lead small groups centered on solving problems through measurable actions while providing a valuable source of guidance and introspection for all participants through peer support.

Continuing Care:

Inpatient treatment marks a new beginning. While inpatient treatment will provide a solid foundation for recovery it is vital patients remain engaged with a continuing care plan as research shows ongoing support is key to long-term success. Patients collaborate with a case manager and clinical team to develop a post treatment plan best suited to meet the individual’s needs for a seamless transition.
