Silvermist is located in Renfrew, Pennsylvania.
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.
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 Silvermist offer?
24 Hour Clinical Care
At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.
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.
Residential (inpatient) Treatment
Silvermist residential treatment offers cutting-edge inpatient addiction treatment in a casual, warm, and relaxed countryside atmosphere at two luxury residences. A one-to-four clinician-to-client ratio allows for individualized attention when it’s needed, while still providing a sense of community and camaraderie.
They offer each resident at Silvermist a unique, person-focused plan for recovery, made possible by their high clinician-to-client ratio. This individualized approach throughout the treatment process guarantees their clients retain their privacy, dignity, and comfort, and increases the chance that they successfully achieve recovery. They recognize the importance of assessing all aspects of an individual’s journey and developing a distinctive, person-centered recovery plan that addresses not only the dependency but the life occurrences that often perpetuate the course of addiction or inhibit positive change.
Silvermist is proudly committed to using the 12 steps and 12-step therapy in its programming, and they believe that the use of the 12 steps substantially increases the likelihood of success in achieving long-term recovery. By supporting the 12 steps and encouraging our residents to attend 12-step meetings, Silvermist residents are allowed to form a support network of likeminded individuals outside of the facility. Meetings can also provide the coping tools and behavioral strategies necessary for their residents to successfully reintegrate into their home communities while achieving their most important goal: remaining sober.
Family involvement is a vital component of long lasting recovery. Family members and significant others are provided educational and counseling services during family sessions with clinical staff. Weekend programming is geared toward family visits and includes family programs for support and education. Family members are encouraged to contact clinical staff for advice and assistance about particular aspects of treatment.
Aftercare planning at Silvermist is a joint effort between the client and their primary therapist. To achieve the most successful change at sustained recovery, the client must have a plan that they are willing to follow upon discharge from the program. Therapists and other staff help guide the client by giving them resources and suggestions as to what path may work best for them. All aftercare plans are designed to meet the individual’s specific needs.
Silvermist encourages participation in holistic therapies for those who feel that such practices improve overall personal health and well-being. The environment at Silvermist also encourages holistic practices such as meditation and yoga. Several acres of beautiful, well-manicured landscape offer a chance to get away from it all and provide the perfect setting for quiet thought and individual reflection. Clients can take advantage of the property’s walking paths, hammocks, saltwater pool, patio, and other outdoor relaxation areas. We also have a fitness center on-site for our clients’ use.
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.
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 informed care enables them to identify a person’s current situation and actions as a result of past negative events, while allowing us to see the potential for that individual to recover. One of the most difficult aspects of incorporating trauma informed care as a framework involves removing the stigma of substance abuse and inappropriate behaviors that are related to it. Trauma informed care allows them to recognize many of these behaviors as learned mechanisms for survival. Therefore, incorporating changes in our understanding of behavior is vital to recovery from a trauma informed care perspective.
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.
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.
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.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.
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, 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.
