Outpatient Treatment

You’ve decided that you or a loved one need to receive addiction treatment at a rehabilitation center. Maybe you or your loved one experienced abuse as a child and used drugs or alcohol to help cope with their pain, or drugs or alcohol are being used to help numb the pain of a mental illness.

It is difficult to overcome addiction from drugs or alcohol alone. Simply having the willpower to change is often not enough to get better, but the desire to get help is the first step to recover from substance addiction.

Overcoming addiction involves more than deciding to simply give up drugs or drinking. Even after the substances have been cleaned from the body physically, mental aspects still remain that can cause a person to go back to using. Outpatient treatment helps you take a deeper look into what mental and emotional factors may push you back to using drugs or alcohol. Drug rehab can allow you to overcome those non-physical obstacles to prevent you from having the desire to go back to those previous self-destructive ways.

Whatever the case may be, Shadow Mountain is here for you or a loved one and will help with the recovery process every step of the way. 

Our Outpatient Rehab Services

Not all forms of abuse are the same. Therefore, no singular form of treatment can help every person recover from addiction. There are many treatment programs designed to help people with specific types of issues, like detox. Shadow Mountain has professionals on staff that can help determine which treatment program is right for you or your loved one.

Individual Therapy

One of the most common forms of addiction treatment is individual therapy. This involves an individual working one-on-one with a single therapist. These sessions take place in private and allow the patient to be comfortable to open up about the issues they have been struggling with. With the help of a therapist, the patient can identify the underlying factors that have led to the abuse.

  • We focus on any underlying mental illnesses, known as co-occurring disorders, that could contribute to drug or alcohol use.
  • Our medical team works with licensed therapists to treat any co-occurring disorders, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is a commonly used and effective treatment. In this type of therapy, people explore how they can learn and unlearn specific behaviors. Patients are guided to make changes in their behavior that can eventually allow them to overcome addiction.

  • CBT focuses on identifying negative thoughts that lead to addictive behaviors.
  • Our outpatient services also include psychiatric evaluations with Master’s Level clinicians to help heal from addiction.

Holistic Treatments

The mind, body, and soul can be addressed in unison to help overcome addiction in a holistic manner instead of merely a physical detox or other singularly-focused program. Some of these therapy techniques include fitness therapy, meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, and equine therapy. These treatments have proven to be effective for many of our patients.

  • This type of treatment approach allows patients to explore the various ways their substance use affected them, from the physical strain on their body, to its effect on how they view themselves and the world.
  • Holistic treatments also challenge patients to look within themselves to their motivations, desires, and what they hope for themselves moving forward.
