High Risk Behaviors

Addiction is not only about the drug or the drink. Often, the place ourselves in overwhelming situations that can be addictive. Process addictions are usually centered around high risk behaviors that fulfill other and extreme needs.  Gambling, shopping, eating, high risk sexual encounters, and other similar methods of escape are common. Because of our small size, we were able to focus on each client to find how these high risk behaviors infiltrate their lives. We look forward to address additional issues in treatment so you can focus on a lasting recovery at home.

Nutrition and Fitness

The toll of addiction not only ravage the mind, but destroy the body. Many enter treatment with symptoms of malnourishment, or physical exhaustion and significant obesity. After the detox process (if prescribed), we can focus on restoring physical health through balanced meals and scheduled physical fitness. Maintaining a healthy physique can be a critical part to a lasting recovery. Returning to healthy patterns of sleep, emotion, and health allow the mind to fight addiction fully.

Codependency

For many of us, codependency has become the only method of survival.

Womens’ Issues

One of the leading principles at our facility is that women can embrace the challenge of addiction in a unique way. Although the culture in our communities often strangles us with guilt of failing body images and relationships, we believe women have the right to be accepted as we are. We strive to create a safe place for women to explore every aspect of their mind, body, and sexuality in order to develop successful relationships throughout sobriety.

Everyone addresses spirituality in their own unique way. We provide the opportunity to embrace a higher power, society, and family in the recovery and continued sobriety process.
