Medically Assisted Detox:

Detoxification is the first step taken to treat drug abuse. The process removes toxins from the body and helps individuals withdraw safely from their substance of abuse. Without proper care, severe health problems can develop from physical withdrawal. The detox program treats addictions to drugs such as Xanax, oxycontin, opiate, meth, cocaine, designer drugs and prescription pills. A medically assisted detoxification involves the use of specific medicine that can ease withdrawal symptoms with no complications. A certified doctor specializing in addiction medicine will be involved in supervising the client and ensure there are no problems that develop. The goal of our staff is to ensure a successful recovery with minimal dependency on medications. Another procedure within the drug detox program is to address the emotional and behavioral conditions that lead to addiction. Clients are also introduced to education and counseling programs to be more aware of the realities of drug addiction and recognize the effects on relationships with friends, family, and loved ones. Drug detox is the first part of drug treatment. Detox focuses on removing toxins from the body. To ensure full recovery and prevent relapse, additional support may be necessary in order to address emotion and behavioral issues.


Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Intervention Services:

Intervention Services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict’s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need. Taking that first step to recovery is often the most difficult, and, in some instances, requires the support and coordination of family and loved ones. At Artemis Hill Recovery, their licensed interventionist will help facilitate and guide all involved through the intervention process.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Holistic Treatment:

Holistic treatment for women’s addiction can be an effective means to improve self-control and minimize dependence on the drug or substance. It involves the use of natural healing remedies that eliminate the drug and alcohol toxins from the body. This is achieved through spiritual recovery involving yoga, acupuncture, or meditation. The holistic method to recovery helps clients find the root cause of addiction and understand the factors leading to drug and alcohol addiction. By applying the appropriate treatment plan for each individual, addiction can be arrested early and symptoms of withdrawal can be alleviated. Alternative activities can also be conducted to promote a healthier addiction-free life. Traditional holistic drug treatment encourages recovery by allowing clients to connect with their spiritual side. Activities include meditation, massage, acupuncture (on request), yoga, spiritual counseling, nutritional therapy, mild exercise, and breathing routines. These approaches promote a state of peace and tranquility in a client’s mind, allowing them to focus on achieving full recovery. Artemis Hill Recovery Inc. provides a secure facility for holistic treatments. To determine if these programs can work for you or a loved one, please call our office to schedule a consultation.

Treatment Focus:


Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Therapy Programs:


Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Individual Therapy:

Individual therapy at Artemis Hill Recovery is provided by a highly trained and experienced professional health counselor. Clients meet periodically with the counselor during the 3-10 day treatment program. Their counselors are specialists in treating and providing detox for cocaine, opiate, Xanax, meth, prescription pill, and oxycontin addictions.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members. A successful group therapy program can be provided inside or outside of the facility. Groups are led by treatment specialists with vast experience in the addiction and recovery field. Other groups are maintained by fellow recovering addicts.

Equine Therapy:

Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction.

Experiential Therapy:

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.
