Presence Saint Joseph Hospital - Harborview Recovery Center Focus:

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center 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.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

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.

Rehab Services:

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 Presence Saint Joseph Hospital - Harborview Recovery Center offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

24 Hour Clinical Care

Their physicians and nurses are on-site and on call at all times. Psychiatrists and addiction counseling staff are available to help you during your recovery. They can treat any co-existing medical and psychiatric conditions. They provide a mobile, wireless device to continuously monitor your vital signs overnight for increased safety.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a comprehensive treatment program that includes diagnostic, psychiatric and psychosocial services. The medical director, outpatient therapist and patient work together to identify therapeutic goals and develop individualized assessments and treatment plans. In a relaxed setting, the IOP provides intensive treatment among a healing community of peers. Offered 3 times per week, this program combines group and individual therapy, education, 12-step meetings and family support in 3-hour sessions. You can choose either a day or evening program to fit your schedule.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare. For their outpatient programs, you begin by calling them to make your intake appointment. During your intake visit, they perform a urine test to assess what substances are in your system.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Their inpatient program is medically based, with medical doctors who oversee each patient. You’ll begin with an intake appointment, in which they perform a physical exam to evaluate your medical stability and a urine test to assess what substances are in your system. Thei inpatient program includes: Detoxification (medical stabilization), and Residential rehab that is a short-term program that provides 24-hour care before you move on to outpatient treatment. Their location inside the hospital offers you treatment for all your health needs in one place.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Their recovery center is a small, intimate treatment facility with staff who work with you in small groups on your individual needs. They offer a safe, supportive environment to help you heal and begin a healthy way of life. Their team of addiction medicine professionals works together to develop your personalized plan of care.


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. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) hold meetings in the unit for patients and anyone in the recovering community. While they are still in treatment, patients can meet people who are recovering.

Family Program

They provide education and support for family members, because family involvement is key to your successful recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. A therapist leads weekly meetings for patients and their family members to connect and share experiences.

Aftercare Support

At your discharge from inpatient care, they can refer you to supportive services based on your specific needs, including individual or group therapy, long-term residential treatment or a sober living residence. Bridge group is where a peer (recovering addict) who is living independently talks about how to transition from inpatient and outpatient care to living on your own. The Continuing care program is a weekly, one-hour program that provides an opportunity to touch base with others for ongoing support through your addiction recovery. All of their former patients (inpatient or outpatient) can attend an Alumni meeting for positive reinforcement and fellowship. They host an alumni dinner each quarter.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

What sets Harborview apart from other programs is their belief that addiction is a disease that affects the whole person—mind, body and spirit. Through their holistic approach, they offer activities that support recovery and keep patients fully engaged in their treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, for the best possible outcomes.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

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.

Trauma Therapy

One of their counselors has training from Brené Brown, a researcher in how emotions such as courage, shame, vulnerability and worthiness affect our ability to live a healthy life. Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

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.

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.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

ECT is a form of treatment in which controlled electric currents are passed through the brain, sometimes causing short seizures. Treatments are done under general anesthesia. ECT appears to change brain chemistry for the better, and has been shown to provide fast and sometimes dramatic improvements in severe mental health conditions that can exist alongside addiction, including depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and suicidality. ECT is also often used by those who prefer it to taking medication.

Animal Therapy

Animal therapy (aka pet therapy or animal-assisted therapy) can be very healing, as it allows patients to bond with animals, who give unconditional love. This is particularly useful for those who suffered trauma by the hands of people, who may be able to trust and form closer attachments to animals than humans at certain stages of rehabilitation.
