Evidence-Based and Tailored to You

Taking a mindful approach, we aim to give patients the best treatment and a better chance for lasting recovery. We rely on evidence-based clinical approaches that are tailored to the needs of the individual, all led by staff with a masters-level education or higher.


Clinical Approaches

 

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL TREATMENT (CBT)

The Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) approach aids in recovery by targeting behaviors that trigger substance abuse, many of which are reinforced through family interactions. By working to change those interactions by improving communication and problem solving, and strengthening coping skills, CBT can help build the habits of lasting recovery.

*ART (ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY)

Accelerated Resolution Therapy uses relaxing eye movements and Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement to change the way in which negative images are stored in the brain, helping patients move toward growth and positive change. The evidence-based approach of ART helps patients with substance abuse, sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder or many other mental and physical conditions stop trauma from triggering strong emotional or physical reactions.

TRAUMA RECOVERY AND EMPOWERMENT MODEL (TREM)

TREM is a group-based intervention to help empower women and build social bonds as they recover from sexual and physical abuse. With a minimum of two female, masters-educated staff, we address the short-term and long-term consequences of violent victimization by understanding trauma and building skills to overcome its effects.

DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT)

DBT is a treatment that teaches women with Borderline Personality Disorder and substance use to instill positive behaviors in place of dysfunctional behaviors. Using behavioral problem solving, acceptance-based strategies, and dialectical processes that are unique to each individual, DBT increases coping skills, such as interpersonal effectiveness and emotional regulation, to improve your quality of life.

MIND-BODY SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM (MBBSAP)

MBBSAP is designed to increase your well-being, mindfulness and self-compassion while reducing craving, trauma symptoms and sleep disturbances. The 10-week program teaches awareness skills, like using sights, sounds and tactile sensations, to interrupt the processes of the mind and body that drive addictive behavior.

NURTURING PARENT PROGRAM

The Nurturing Parent program is designed to enhance family communication and end the generational cycle of abuse by promoting healthy physical and emotional development. Parents and children attend their own groups, tailored to age, culture and needs, to build self-awareness, positive self-esteem, greater awareness of each others needs and more.

MULTIDIMENSIONAL FAMILY THERAPY (MDFT)

Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) treats abuse and behavior issues by understanding the interconnected relationship between behavior, emotion, and cognitive process. Working individually with mothers and their children, as well as the family as a whole, MDFT helps facilitate new relationships and work the the multidimensional issues to help families recover.

EXTENDED CARE AND FOLLOW UP
