Programming for Addiction Eating Disorders Mental Health
Drug and Alcohol Addiction Programming
We aim to help women identify and understand the root cause of their drug or alcohol addiction. This is done through individual and group therapy, trauma work, personal assignments, community support groups, and other opportunities for introspection.
Instead of just treating the symptoms of addiction, we believe that in the value of providing opportunities for women to understand how their addiction started and how they are able to remove any barriers they may have to thriving on their recovery journey.
We help the women in our program understand their own triggers and help them to create a relapse prevention plan to implement when they complete treatment.
Addiction education is a valuable part of understanding the ways in which our minds and bodies respond when drugs or alcohol are present. We teach the women in our program how to navigate their own personal addiction history and create a recovery plan.
Community Support Groups
We provide opportunities for women to connect with others in the community with similar experiences. This is done through 12-step based groups, Refuge Recovery groups, and other opportunities for sober community support.
Eating Disorder Programming
Many women living with substance use disorders are also struggling with eating disorders. We have found that it is beneficial to women seeking recovery for us to address both the drug or alcohol addiction and the eating disorder simultaneously.
We aim to teach women how to have a healthy relationship with their bodies and food. When patterns of disordered eating go unaddressed in addiction treatment, it puts women at a greater risk for relapse. Although treatment providers understand the benefits of treating co-occurring disorders, few are willing to find the resources to do so.
All our staff has been trained to provide meal support to help our patients develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies.
We use a mindfulness-based approach to teach patients how to understand their body's needs and signals.
We provide movement activities each day for patients to appropriately nurture their mind-body connection.
Holistic treatment means that we focus on healing the whole person from a biological, psychological, social and spiritual perspective. We have found there to be a tremendous amount of value in seeing the bigger picture and how the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of a woman’s life operate as a system – as apposed to just treating the symptoms of a deeper issue. It is our goal to work with you to determine the root or underlying cause or causes of your addictions and any co-occurring disorders.
Through our holistic treatment lens we are able to find and address any imbalances in the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual parts of your life.
