Albuquerque Recovery Center

Shadow Mountain Albuquerque is a unique residential rehabilitation treatment center that is built around helping you heal and rebuild. Patients in our care will have the option to participate in a 12-step program or a unique alternative to 12-step program that is built to enable long lasting rehabilitation from substance addiction. 

Our evidence-based treatment plan has an underlying emphasis on tried and true holistic approaches that focus on providing you with the ultimate rehabilitation experience for you or your loved one.


An Addiction Treatment Center with Individualized Treatment

We all have different backgrounds, upbringings, and stresses. Furthermore, everyone with an addiction has different reasons, and will go home to a different environment when they enter recovery. 

For these reasons, Shadow Mountain Recovery is highly aware that everyone needs a different treatment plan. 

We’re able to make sure each patient truly receives that individual care care with our 1 to 6 staff to patient ratio, meaning to all of our employees have plenty of time to get to know each one of our clients. 

Shadow Mountain believes in individualized treatment, because recovery is not one size fits all. 

  • Quality addiction treatment because we individualize the treatment plans

  • Affordable care because we accept several types of insurance

  • Highly rated recovery center with numerous glowing reviews


A Dual Diagnosis Center with Psychiatrists and Psychologists on Staff

As many as 40% of people struggling with addiction also have a co-occuring mental disorder that has either caused or exacerbated their substance abuse. 

The other 60% of people trying to get into recovery need mental health care for agitating factors, as treatment can be hard on the mind and body. 

Because of this, Shadow Mountain Recovery is a dual diagnosis center, meaning that we have psychologists and psychiatrists on our regular staff, and ensure that underlying mental illnesses are thoroughly treated. 

Treating underlying mental illness makes a recovery more likely to stick, and even makes those currently in treatment more likely to finish their current program. 

A dual diagnosis rehab may be the first time our clients have gotten to speak with a professional psychologist or psychiatrist, and gives them a chance to finally have their full needs pin-pointed and supported. 

Our Master’s Level clinicians are available to every client staying at our center. 

  • Compassionate psychology services during your treatment

  • Helpful psychiatry sessions to address underlying issues

  • Patient counselors to assist on your journey to sobriety


A Top-Notch Detox on the Premises 

Chemical dependence has physical as well as mental consequences. Some drugs can even be dangerous to quit cold-turkey, depending on your personal medical history. 

Shadow Mountain Recovery has a detox center with 24-hour medical support right on the premises. 

Having qualified doctors on staff keeps our clients safe, and the detox center transitions perfectly into residential treatment once clients are medically stable again. 


A Unique Alcoholism Treatment Center

Shadow Mountain’s treatment plans stand out among the rest. 

  • Unique alcoholism treatment with multiple options

  • Different approaches to alcoholism incorporating dual diagnosis and therapy

For example, most alcoholism treatment is only a 12-Step program. 

While 12-Step alcoholism treatment, and narcotics treatment variations, have been successful for many, the faith-based approach does not work for everyone. 

Many people need an alternative as some find 12-Step methods to be helpful, yet need additional counseling or treatment. 

Shadow Mountain Recovery’s individualized treatment plans support 12-Step methods, 12-Step alternatives, or a combination of the two. 


Addiction Treatment as a Mental Health Service

As you have seen above, Shadow Mountain combines quality medical care with psychology and counseling. 

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

We treat each of our clients as a whole person, looking not just at their addiction, but at all their medical and mental needs to get back on track. 

  • Holistic addiction treatment that includes mental health

  • Life skills taught to ensure a good mental health regimen can be continued after treatment

Reviews & Testimonials

See what people are saying about us.

I am a person in long-term recovery, which to me means I haven’t used any alcohol or drugs since January 15th of 2017. At Shadow Mountain, the clinical staff was experienced, patient, and engaged. The support staff such as the techs all represented strong recovery and guys like Nate played a vital role in the beginning of my sobriety. The facilities were adequate and the medical aspect (pharmacology, therapy, group activities) were efficient and beneficial. I wouldn’t have the life I have today without Shadow Mountain.

If you want to change yourself and your life then Shadow Mountain Recovery in Taos, NM can work for you. My experience there didn't change everything but it put in motion a journey to happiness, fulfillment and sobriety that without the program I would not be on. Until going to Shadow Mountain I really thought I could handle my addiction on my own. This city boy realized, in the mountains of Taos, that he wasn't alone and there are people who want to help and can help. All you need is to be open to the process of healing, honesty, and positivity ("Go Deep"). It does require you to work and to be open but if you just put in a little effort you can find a new way, a new life, or just a new way of looking at the life you have now. I'd recommend treatment to anyone, addict or not. Life isn't always easy and reaching out for help can seem daunting, embarrassing, or weak but if you take the first step and choose a place like Shadow Mountain Recovery someone will definitely be there to guide you. Most importantly they'll be there to help you with every step after the most important step you chose for yourself. Addiction is a difficult and devastating disease but if you choose to take it on Shadow Mountain is a great place to start. Thanks to all the staff that helped me find my way and the new friends that will forever be a part of this journey. Choose sobriety, choose yourself, choose life.
