Arbor Behavioral Healthcare offers a continuum of addiction treatment programs based upon 12-step principles. The Arbor's unique programs were developed by a team of addiction professionals with over 95 years of experience in the field of chemical dependency.

The Arbor 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.

Alcoholism

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

It is common for those suffering from addiction to also have other mental disorders. These individuals suffer from a dual diagnosis. In many cases, individuals have been abusing alcohol, drugs or both in order to medicate the symptoms of other co-occurring disorders. They utilize several strategies to treat clients with co-occurring disorders including pharmacotherapies, mindfulness meditation, nutrition, exercise, yoga, equine therapy (Natural Lifemanship), EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral, and 12-step recovery.

What does The Arbor offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Arbor Inpatient Addiction Treatment Program offers the most intensive program in the Arbor Behavioral Healthcare Continuum of Care. Offering a highly personalized plan of care in a luxurious residential setting, their intent is to provide a comfortable environment away from the distractions of life where one can focus on his or her recovery. The landscape is serene with an urban ranch feel that provides a relaxing, down-to-earth setting. The Ranch is home to a number of cutting edge therapies including their innovative Equine Assisted Psychotherapy program. The Arbor offers wide range of treatment modalities providing an excellent beginning on the path to sobriety as well as physical and mental wellness.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

The treatment journey is a very challenging process. Treatment at The Arbor begins with a thorough and detailed assessment process. Each client is assigned a personal support team that includes their medical director, the recovery manager, a recovery coach, primary therapist and, if needed, a psychiatrist. He or she will meet with each of these primary care experts on a one-on-one basis at least weekly. Together his or her team will design a custom treatment plan to ensure that each receives World Class treatment.

12-Step

All of the treatment programs at Arbor Behavioral Healthcare center around the 12-Step Approach to addiction recovery. 12-Step Recovery has been proven successful for more than 80 years. The 12-Step approach began in the 1930s with Alcoholics Anonymous. Over the years, this approach has proven successful for many different addictive behaviors. So much so the steps are often referred to as the “12 steps to freedom” from addiction.

Family Program

The Arbor Family Program is designed to address the needs of the family of the alcoholic/drug addict as they navigate the path to sobriety and healthy living. It is not uncommon for there to be a complete breakdown of communication between the suffering addict and their family. Their family program helps bridge this gap and get the entire family moving towards a healthy direction. Their Family Program is a combination of educational and therapeutic modalities. It is a three and a half day intensive program offered monthly, and is ideal for family members, partners, and significant others affected by addiction. It is lead and directed by masters-level clinicians, and is an experiential program which includes equine assisted therapy, group interaction, individual sessions and other therapeutic activities.

Aftercare Support

Developing a continuing care plan is the main focus throughout each person’s time at the Arbor. As mentioned above, healing the mind and soul can take a long time thus it is important to plan ahead for continuous support in sobriety. Residential treatment is just the beginning of the journey. They will work with each individual to develop a custom continuing care plan that is based on several factors; such as the presence of mental health challenges, living conditions, family functioning, and willingness to change. They also include the family in the development of the continuing care plan. The family has much-needed insight on the individual’s challenges that need to be addressed within the plan. There are a number of extended care, sober living, outpatient, aftercare and alumni programs within the Arbor Continuum, allowing for the development of a continuing care plan that best serves the client and their family.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Arbor Behavioral Healthcare offers an integrative and holistic approach to treat a wide variety of addictions as well as underlying mental health and psychological issues. All of the addiction recovery programs offered by The Arbor are designed to heal the mind, body, and spirit leading to a lifetime of sobriety, health and wellness. Most of their clients have emotional, personal or mental health issues that underlie their consumption of alcohol and drugs. Long term sobriety is best achieved when the whole person is well. Their medical, clinical and therapeutic staff work together with the patient to resolve underlying problems that impede sobriety. They are prepared to address dual diagnosis and co-occurring mental health disorders.

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.

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

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.

Equine Therapy

One trait common to the majority of individuals who enter treatment at The Arbor are disconnected from emotions and other internal aspects of themselves. This disconnection stems from various painful life experiences and challenges. Something as simple as identifying how they feel at a particular moment can be a struggle. Their Equine Assisted Therapy program helps individuals reconnect with their inner self and deal with stressful emotions in a healthy fashion. It is one of the leading edge therapies available to Arbor Behavioral Healthcare clients. Their program utilizes the innate gentleness and natural instincts of horses to help our clients reconnect to authenticity, intimacy, communication, and trust.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a therapeutic modality originally developed to help process trauma. In an EMDR session, a patient is prompted to undergo eye movements that mimic those of REM sleep. This is accomplished by watching a therapist’s finger move back and forth across, or following a bar of light. The goal is repetitive sets of eye movements that help the brain reprocess memory, which can significantly reduce the intensity of remembered traumatic incidents. Associated memories can heal simultaneously, leaving patients significantly calmer, more stable, and more emotionally relaxed.

Experiential Therapy

Research has shown that a regular fitness program doesn’t just benefit the body; it also paves the way for a healthier mind. Mental health, cognitive function, and even mood are all improved by incorporating an exercise routine. Long term sobriety is supported when the individual has both a healthy mind and a healthy body. Their clients participate in fitness instruction up to five times weekly. By the time they are ready to leave their program, they will have experienced the positive benefits of fitness in their daily lives. Additionally, their staff works with each client to continue to include regular exercise into their lives as part of their discharge and continuing care plan. Guests at The Arbor enjoy instructor-led fitness classes 3 times a week for weight training and 2 times per week for yoga. Available recreational activities include: basketball, volleyball, Meditation, Crossfit as well as runs or walks on their 67 acre, Texas Hill Country ranch.

Nutrition Therapy

The disease of addiction takes it toll on the individual’s mind, spirit, relationships and body. The journey to sobriety is a journey towards good health. The effects of nutrition and a healthy diet on the body is well known. What is often not considered is that proper nutrition is an important part of the healing process of addiction treatment. Clients in their residential programs eat on site and are taught about nutrition and food preparation. Special dietary needs, such as allergies, can be accommodated. Meals are prepared for residents of The Arbor men’s and women’s programs. Each meal is balanced for nutrition, healing properties and taste.

Creative Arts Therapy

Art therapy is exactly what it sounds like, using the arts to help people resolve inner conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight. Art therapy uses the visual arts and creative process to improve the psychological health, cognitive abilities, and sensory-motor functions for the individual. It is action-oriented and experience-based, allowing the individual to uncover feelings and thoughts that lead to addiction, as well as a way to deal with them safely. Thus art therapy is a beneficial part of the treatment plan. Art therapy allows the person look inside themselves and contemplate the nature and causes of their addiction. This helps in various ways. It may uncover why they suffer from addiction. More importantly, participation in the arts is a healthy outlet for dealing with the emotions that addiction stems from.

The Arbor Men’s Program provides a holistic approach which addresses the whole individual encompassing mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and developmental aspects of the client.
