Taos Recovery Center
Saving Lives and Families

Taos Recovery Center

Taos Recovery Center is a unique residential drug rehab built around healing and rebuilding the family set in the gorgeous Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  

Our patients participate in either a 12-Step Program with added psychotherapy, or a 12-Step Alternative program, depending on their personal needs, each designed to promote lasting recovery.  

Every person suffering from a substance abuse disorder begins using drugs or alcohol for a different reason. Most people who are addicted to drugs first sought them out as a way to escape something else in his or her life. 

As many as 40% of people battling addiction also suffer from an underlying mental illness, and those are only the cases properly diagnosed. 

Treating addiction means treating the underlying cause and giving our guests alternative coping methods to handle stress in their lives and treat any mental illnesses when they return to their normal lives. 

Because each person comes from a different background, and each individual will go back to a different environment when they complete treatment, the only way to do this successfully is to fully implement a customized treatment plan. 

Our Taos location can be described as:


  • A unique addiction treatment center that offers fully customized treatment plans for each client
  • A comfortable addiction treatment center that will help each client individually work towards long-term recovery
  • A helpful addiction treatment center to help our patients get clean 


High-Quality Alcoholism Treatment Programs

Custom care plans and individualized treatments are not attainable in every drug rehab center, so Taos stands apart, especially for our alcoholism treatment programs.  

We offer 12-Step programs for excessive drinking or any narcotics, which proves to be highly effective for some, but the faith-based approach is not for everyone. 

Many people come to us because they’ve attempted round after round of 12-Step treatment to no avail. When that path doesn’t work, you need to find something that does, which is why Shadow Mountain focuses on 12-Step alternative programming using only evidence-based methods.

12-step treatments are not helpful for some because they need additional counseling and psychotherapy to treat their underlying conditions. 

Alternatives to 12-step programs that we offer: 

  • Dual-diagnosis treatment included in affordable alcoholism treatment programs
  • Unique alcoholism treatment programs, like animal-assisted therapy and exercise


Experienced Psychiatrists, Psychotherapists, and Psychologists for Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Almost half of people struggling with addiction have co-occurring mental conditions like depression or anxiety. These conditions exacerbate an addiction, and in many cases, not knowing how to cope with them is what triggered the addiction in the first place. 

The other half of people looking for help with substance abuse still have mental health struggles even if they don’t have an official diagnosis. Regular life is full of stresses and trying to heal from addiction comes with unique mental, emotional, and physical challenges. 

These challenges require professional mental health care to make lasting progress. 

Shadow Mountain Recovery - Taos keeps psychologists and psychiatrists on hand full-time for precisely this reason.  

Having on-staff psychologists and psychiatrists for dual diagnosis treatment allows us to be sure that any mental diagnoses are fully evaluated and cared for alongside addiction. This especially allows us to find issues that weren’t diagnosed properly before someone came into our drug rehab. 

Examining underlying causes of addiction, teaching coping methods, and using assistive medications when necessary, emphasizing these mental health factors cause recovery much more likely to stick after our patients leave us. 

Shadow Mountain Recovery’s location, in the peaceful mountain setting of Taos, New Mexico has Master’s Level clinicians available to provide our patients the peace of mind they need to fully heal and change their habits to healthier coping methods.  

We provide:  

  • Sessions with caring psychologists to ensure that the underlying cause of addiction is being treated
  • One-on-one sessions with experienced psychiatrists for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies
  • Great psychotherapists to teach patients healthy ways to cope with stress

A Rehabilitation Center with 24-Hour Medical Support on the Premises 

Our recovery center offers quality medical care 24 hours a day for any of our clients’ needs. We have experienced doctors on staff for clients who need medically-assisted detox, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), or other unique needs they may require.

Our 1 to 6 staff to patient ratio ensures our client's needs are taken care of. 

Having quality medical support at Shadow Mountain- Taos not only means our clients will be safe, but that they also receive individualized care. 

  • A committed rehabilitation center that gets to the root cause of addiction and increases the chance of long-term recovery
  • Activity-based therapies that include hiking, and other forms of exercise outside our beautiful rehabilitation center


Mental Health Services that Emphasize Trauma-Informed Care and Family Therapy

Shadow Mountain Taos is a unique drug rehab because we combine quality medical care with psychology and counseling.  

Taking a full mental health approach to addiction also requires teaching our clients self-care techniques, and ensuring that they have a proper after-care plan in place when they leave our center to help them achieve long-term recovery. 

We treat each of our clients for not only their addiction, but the underlying causes for the addiction as well. This approach increases the chance for long-term recovery and decreases the chance of relapse. 

Our programs included at our inpatient mental health facility are: 

  • Helpful mental health services that include counselors who can listen and give psychiatric homework, and prescribe medications as needed
  • Holistic treatment included at our experienced inpatient mental health facility

There aren't enough words to express how thankful I am with Shadow Mountain and the treatment they gave to me, what I lived there is something I won't be able to live anywhere else, everything there was great and everything helped me to become who I am now.
