Our Treatment Approach: Integrating Mind, Body, and Spirit

Our philosophy of recovery and addiction treatment centers on the whole person: integrating mind, body and spirit. We believe that everyone has the capacity to access the mental health and wisdom they were born with. By embracing this innate health, we pull upon the power of inner strength and re-establish a sense of self-pride and self-worth. The result is positive thinking which leads to healthy choices and therefore, positive behavior.

We utilize a personalized, holistic health approach – embracing evidence-based best-practices — as drug addiction affects both mental and physical health. We listen, we respect, we understand and we help.

Our staff whole-heartedly believes in the power of personal touch and their passion for helping transform the lives of every person. They work with each person to build one-on-one relationships that transcend even the most difficult challenges. We also address each person’s culture and lifestyle which are factors that play an important role in reaching recovery.

In developing individualized treatment plans for our clients, we use a variety of therapeutic approaches in our program, depending on need and desires. While these are not the only treatment options, below are brief descriptions of the most commonly used therapies. Contact us to find out which options will be right for you or a loved one.

Health Realization

Health realization is a therapeutic approach focused on the role of “mind, thought and consciousness” and “innate health” on a patient’s experience of their life. This asset, or strength, based principal of the health realization approach is  based on the premise that resilience and innate health is an unlimited, natural resource found within all human beings.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a therapeutic treatment which helps patients develop goals and actions in a trusting, collaborative atmosphere with a therapist. The collaboration between the patient and the therapist enables the goals, actions and treatment to be based on the individual’s own needs, wishes, values and strengths.

Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a psychotherapeutic treatment where patients come to understand how their thoughts and feelings influence their behaviors. The principal concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behaviors and through learning how to identify and change destructive thoughts a patient can change the negative influence of those thoughts on their behaviors.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. Like CBT, dialectical behavioral therapy seeks to change the underlying negative thoughts or feelings that influence a person’s behaviors. DBT’s main goal, however, is to teach the patient coping skills to deal with stress, how to regulate their emotions and improve their relationships.


A 12-step program is a familiar concept to many. It is a set of guiding principles which outlines a path to recovery from addiction, compulsion and other behavioral problems. 12-step therapy is an actively engaged treatment strategy which is designed to increase the likelihood of recovery through self-help groups that promote abstinence.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT) is a treatment program that enables individuals to anticipate and cope with their potential for relapse. A relapse isn’t a failure, it’s a bump on the road to recovery. It can also be an opportunity learn about the triggers, behaviors and situations that puts an individual at risk for relapsing.
