Our Care

Our treatment approach is designed to meet the holistic needs of the individual.  We recognize that addiction and mental health needs do not occur independently, and often individuals need assistance in all areas of their lives to become well.  Our services are;

  • Evidence-based: We work to stay informed and practice the most current models of treatment that have been shown to be effective in treating behavioral health disorders.  Therapies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention, Motivational Interviewing and more.
  • Trauma informed: We provide a safe, supportive and healing environment intended to avoid or minimize trauma triggers and re-traumatization.  We embrace a no-tolerance approach to violence or threats of violence in our treatment setting.
  • Recovery focused: We believe that each person’s recovery is as unique as they are and builds on the individual’s strength and resiliency. Recovery is a personal journey, rather than a set outcome, and one that involves developing hope, a secure base and sense of self, supportive relationships, social inclusion, coping skills and meaning.
  • Culturally competent: We respect each person’s culture and incorporate cultural strengths, needs and preferences into their individualized treatment program.  Culture may include characteristics such as race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, income level, education, geographical location or profession.
  • Gender specific: Our services are designed specifically for women, addressing the distinctive medical, psychological, social, spiritual, familial, financial and occupational needs of women.
  • Person centered: We walk side-by-side with those we serve as they progress through their recovery journey.  We recognize the person as the expert in their recovery and encourage, empower and support their vision for recovery.
