Our Inpatient Services Treatment Approach

At the core of our inpatient services are evidence-based therapies proven to be highly effective in treating substance use disorders. 

These include:

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT helps you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors related to addiction.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): DBT teaches mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills.

Trauma-informed approach: We recognize that many people struggle with unresolved trauma that contributes to addictive behaviors. Therapies like eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) can help you process and heal from past traumatic experiences.

Experiential therapies: These provide creative outlets for expression, personal growth, and developing healthy coping mechanisms. From art and music to recreation and horticulture therapy, these activities nurture your mind, body, and spirit.

Most importantly, your treatment will be highly individualized based on a comprehensive assessment and your personal goals. You’ll work closely with your treatment team to create a plan that addresses your specific challenges, needs, and aspirations.

Getting Started

Taking that first, courageous step is often the hardest part of the journey. We strive to make the admissions process as simple and supportive as possible. Our compassionate intake coordinators will guide you through every step, answering any questions you may have.

This allows us to maximize the benefits you’re entitled to and keep outstanding costs to a minimum. If you don’t have insurance, we can discuss self-pay options that work within your means.
