Effective therapies for a new lifestyle.
What do YOU want out of this?

Connect Through Group Therapy​

Group therapies are known to reduce isolation and increase success. We are living examples of the benefits of the AA lifestyle. Eight hours of clinical work is provided per day once you enter Residential treatment, including psychoeducational and 12-Step groups to support your sobriety through building relationships while you are here.

Process Groups

Our process groups provide a unique opportunity for our clients to enhance their level of self-awareness and to actively improve their interpersonal skills. By receiving additional perspective and support from peers, our clients benefit from a safe environment in which they can express themselves through new behaviors.

Evidence-Based Psychotherapy

A core component of our program confronts the thoughts and behavioral patterns associated with addiction. We believe, and studies continue to prove, that the skills learned through psychotherapy significantly improve your ability to enjoy a lifetime of addiction recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

We utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, commonly referred to as CBT, to help our clients apply logic and reason to their lives, and to see how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. CBT is effective in treating depression, anxiety, and PTSD in addition to substance use disorders.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is a type of CBT that focuses on mindfulness and gaining control over patterns of behavior. This form of therapy is most helpful to those who experience intense emotional reaction or impulsive behaviors. Those suffering from borderline personality disorder or sexual trauma find DBT to be particularly beneficial.

Existential Therapy

This type of psychotherapy revolves around the themes of freedom and responsibility. Many who suffer from addiction struggle with ideas of meaninglessness, suffering, and loneliness. The more we learn about taking responsibility for the decisions we make, the more freedom we feel to pursue a life of fulfillment.
