Center for Healing Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers 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/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

For those suffering from a mental illness and a comorbid substance abuse problem, they are able to help them face their issues and put them on a road to sobriety and peace of mind. They understand the particular challenges of this situation, knowing that drug abuse itself often induces psychiatric symptoms, thus making it necessary to differentiate between substance induced and pre-existing mental illness. Their Dual Diagnosis meets the needs of their clients who require such services.

Rehab Services:

Vivitrol used for Addiction Recovery

Vivitrol has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of opiate and alcohol abuse, especially when complimented with an effective rehab program. Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication approved by the FDA that is used to suppress a person's cravings for a substance.

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Center for Healing offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). For many, their Intensive Outpatient Program, IOP, offers a steady path to recovery. A minimum of nine clinical hours per week are required at this level of care and their client’s schedules may be modified to allow for outside responsibilities.

Outpatient (OP)

The least intense of their programs, the Outpatient Program, OP, provides an avenue to success while allowing you to maintain important aspects of your day-to-day life. The staff works closely with you to keep you on track. OP is a short-term approach conducted three times weekly, less than 9 hours per week.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

The path from drug and alcohol addiction to recovery is a journey. They create unique substance abuse treatment plans for each person based on their individual addiction treatment needs. They are completely committed to your addiction recovery. Center for Healing believes that each person can find hope again. Focused on overcoming substance abuse addiction, the Center for Healing understands that addiction does not discriminate and the needs of those seeking help are as unique as the individual themselves.


The 12-Step philosophy and fellowship, with its proven success in contributing to long-standing recovery from addiction, is a cornerstone of their program as it provides recovery principles and tools as well as a support network for their client both during and following treatment. Their clients learn that while they may not be responsible for the disease of addiction, or their mental disorders, they are responsible for their recovery.

Family Program

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.

Aftercare Support

For the clients who have been discharged from their program, they have an aftercare program that allows you to stay connected to them. You may have done all the hard work to recover, but that doesn’t mean you won’t necessarily hit a rough patch at some point. Know that you’re welcome to return for the support you need, whether that be meeting with a counselor or therapist, or stopping by to jump in a group session. They also help you sustain your sobriety through their Alumni Program which offers special meetings, events and holiday parties.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the most common of therapies used in treatment. The theory rests on the notion that if we change our thinking we will change our behavior.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy, DBT, is designed to help people suffering from mood disorders, as well as those who need to change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse. This approach works towards helping people increase their emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that lead to reactive states and helping to assess which coping skills to apply in the sequence of events, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to help avoid undesired reactions. DBT assumes that people are doing their best but lack the skills needed to succeed, or are influenced by positive or negative reinforcement that interferes with their ability to function appropriately.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

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.

Couples Treatment

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is based on the theory that people suffering from substance use disorders are at varying levels of readiness to change. Through motivational interviewing, we are able to meet the person where he or she is at in their willingness and readiness to change their lives. In a certain respect, this is a “reality check” that helps them understand where their clients are coming from and develop the appropriate means to motivate them to change.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

How we eat can have a powerful effect on how we feel and how well our bodies function. Diet and nutritional supplementation can strengthen our immune systems, improve mood, enhance the natural process of detoxification, and restore the body to a healthy, balanced functioning level.

Center for Healing Highlights:

Some situations call for the most intense response. Partial Care, PC, is a highly-structured addiction treatment program in which they stand by you and guide you through the serious work necessary to make real progress and achieve a lasting recovery. PC provides care five to seven days a week for no less than twenty hours per week.
Those early in recovery experience benefits from mood stabilizing medications. That is often because everyone’s body is different and how your body responds to a given medication is influenced by your genetic makeup or your individual DNA. Genetic testing shortens the time it takes to find a medication that will work for you.
There are many different types of meditation, all of work to quiet the mind and promote relaxation and mental clarity. In particular, studies have shown meditation to be effective in reducing the rate of relapse. In addition to reducing tension and anxiety, meditation may also enhance a sense of control in anxiety-provoking situations that strengthens the long-term resistance to stress.
The techniques of yoga, which include stretching, diaphragmatic breathing, guided relaxation and meditation, can induce the relaxation response and have other profound restorative effects. Regular practice of yoga can increase flexibility, calm the mind, improve concentration and promote patience. It can also contribute to a greater sense of control in more acute states when experiencing cravings, insomnia and agitation.
