0 Reviews

The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations (The Healing Lodge) is a 45-bed adolescent residential chemical dependency treatment center in Spokane Valley, Washington. The Healing Lodge serves males and females ages 13-17 through their 90 to 120 day intensive inpatient treatment programs that are designed around individual youth’s needs.

The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations 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

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 The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations offers three residential treatment programs that meet the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) criteria for Level III.5 intensive inpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment at The Healing Lodge allows for a complete detox period for the resident’s body to be free of those substances, and provides good nutrition to help their bodies and minds heal.

Treatment Types:

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.

Individualized Treatment

They support their counselors with continued education and training, allowing them to provide residents with the most effective and cutting-edge programming available. A primary counselor is assigned to each resident to help them develop and implement a treatment program. The primary counselor gets to know their new resident and their family to provide an individualized treatment experience.


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. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

At The Healing Lodge, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is used to help the residents to deal with day-to-day stresses and work towards a life that feels more meaningful and worthwhile. Skills Coaches help youth to target the issues that cause distress and help teach them coping skills without having to resort to destructive behaviors (like substance use). They work hard to create an enriched experience for the youth by demonstrating how life without drugs and alcohol can be fun and rewarding, and their Skills Coaches lead by example.

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.

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.

Life Skills

Every inpatient treatment center has staff members that monitor residents 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. At The Healing Lodge, they call these “Skills Coaches” to reflect the basis of what they do. Their Skills Coaches “coach” residents in simple daily living skills like doing laundry, organizing clothing, keeping a checking account, renting an apartment or house, and completing a job application. Skills Coaches work to prepare and encourage residents to make wise choices, and help them develop a sense of control over their daily lives.

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

Whether it’s hip-hop or country, young people love music. As a part of their effort to reach the youth where they’re at, The Healing Lodge uses an Expressive Arts Program to engage their residents with song writing, music development, and recording alongside traditional treatment. Through this program, residents get the unique opportunity to write and produce their own song – within any genre of music they’d like. Through this process, the youth are able to express deep feelings and emotions that may otherwise not have come out during their treatment process.
