Got sober thanks to this place. They got me through some dark times and I'm grateful for that. They help me work through some hard issues.
Great center. I helped my brother get into this center and it wasn't a difficult process at all. I appreciated how they were in constant communication with us throughout the process and even while he was in there. My brother has been sober for 8 months now and its amazing seeing him like this.
Promised a bunch and didn't deliver They informed me my insurance would cover everything. never a cent out of my pocket. My insurance paid a boat load and now a year later I am getting calls from lawyers demanding money

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.


Vivitrol is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. Administered only with medical approval, VIVITROL blocks opioid receptors in the brain, which helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse. VIVITROL is non-addictive and extended-release, so it only needs to be taken once a month. Before starting VIVITROL, you must be opioid-free for at least 7-10 days in order to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal symptoms.

Level of Care:


Fellowship in a 12 Step Program is highly encouraged, as it is one of the best paths for sober recovery. Here you will find strong community support. Having a sponsor is strongly encouraged to get into the integrated process as well as facilitate the recovery process. The Sobertec 12-Step recovery groups assist clients in understanding the philosophy behind every step, and work with you on climbing these steps.

Aftercare Support:

The biggest challenge is maintaining sober recovery after finishing with the program. The clinical team is focused on preparing you with the needed tools to continually succeed in living a healthy and addiction-free lifestyle for a lifetime. Sobertec is focused on helping you find the inner strength to achieve continual sobriety along with new healthy habits. Furthermore, their program is exceptional for also having a strong focus on working with you to resolve underlying issues that have led you to addiction.

Individualized Treatment:

Selecting the right addiction treatment program is an important, life-changing component. Every individual has their own individual reasons for deciding to make a change in their lives. Sobertec understands that each person’s path is unique. As treatment centers vary from one location to another, it is vital to find the best fit for you or your loved one. In addition to high quality services and a commitment to serving their clients with the highest standards, they also provide individualized treatment plans tailored according to your situation.

Intensive Outpatient:

There is both the Intensive Outpatient as well as Outpatient Program. Both IOP and OP have 12 step modalities, individual and group therapy, as well as a mentorship component. Mentorship is available for both OP (Outpatient Program) and IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program). Sobertec understands that academic progress is often challenged and impeded by addiction. Various programs are available for students planning to continue their education while learning to maintain a lifestyle of sobriety.

Holistic Treatment:

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


After the client has completed clinically managed detox, he or she will be able to enter residential inpatient treatment. The program places you in an environment that is safe and structured, as well as helping to promote healthy habits. Clients will participate in a comprehensive drug or alcohol treatment program and will learn about addiction in an environment that provides strong support. Rest assured that the program is dedicated to helping the entire mind and body, and there is a tremendous amount of emotional support.


The outpatient program is geared for clients who have established a period of sobriety, and once stabilized, participate in a lower level of care to build on what they have learned from the Sobertec IOP program or from a different facility. The outpatient program is a live-in transitional work/school program. Clients are given the option to go to school, work, or function in their daily lives while also benefitting from flexibly structured programming in the morning or evening. This program is designed for individuals who would not like to take a break/hiatus from work or school for recovery and achieve recovery in a typical life setting.

Medically Assisted Detox:

Detoxification is the first door through which clients pass to treatment. There are several different components that necessitate the level of care a client needs. You or your loved one will be evaluated, stabilized, and supported while being prepared for treatment. Detoxification presents an opportunity to intervene during a period of crisis and to encourage a client to make positive changes in the direction of health and recovery. Their professional clinical staff will utilize this time to build a therapeutic alliance while the client is being physically stabilized.

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.


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.

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.

Therapy Programs:

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.

Fitness Therapy:

Fitness therapy blends exercise with psychotherapy for a fun, inspiring, and effective way of treating addiction and other issues. By incorporating movement into counseling sessions, clients become more empowered, motivated, and goal-oriented, all while strengthening their bodies and becoming more flexible. Fitness Therapy is usually used to complement a course of treatment (inpatient or outpatient) to make it even more successful. Increasing the connection between a patient’s mind and body helps both with healing as well as in creating new, healthy habits.

Couples Therapy:

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:

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.

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.

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

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.

Motivational Interviewing:

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.

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.

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.

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.
