Each Miller House patient is assigned a primary counselor, who is responsible for facilitating his treatment and working with him on a personal treatment plan.

Special Groups and Co-Occurring Issues

Yoga/Meditation: This group is available for men who want to find sober alternatives to help with stress relief and relaxation.

Expressive Digital Imagery:  promotes recovery and emotional resilience through imagery created on mobile devices.  Individuals use EDI to share deeply personal aspects of their lives that are difficult to express through words alone.

Equine Facilitated Therapy: The relationship between horse and person supports emotional growth, learning, and healing. This program offers a path of self-awareness that goes beyond the traditional therapies.

Lifeskills Instructional Sessions

The Lifeskills component focuses on helping Miller House patients maximize the effectiveness of their time in treatment, and on helping them to develop skills necessary for effectiveness in the post-treatment world. Emphasis is placed upon accountability, anger management and conflict resolution, mindfulness, resume-building introduction to time management, and personal and interpersonal communication.

Self-Help Groups

Twelve-step recovery groups are available both on-site and in the community.  Patients are encouraged to obtain a temporary sponsor while attending a variety of community AA and NA meetings that fit their needs.
