Yellowstone Recovery Center offers an intimate serene treatment setting. Yellowstone Recovery Center's goal is to utilize natural healing, nutritional therapy, and recreational therapy to assist in bringing the whole person into balance medically, however, they do realize that medication is at times necessary as well.

Yellowstone Recovery Focus:

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 people who regularly abuse drugs are also diagnosed with mental disorders and vice versa. The high prevalence of this co-occurrence has been documented in multiple national population surveys since the 1980s. Data shows that persons diagnosed with mood or anxiety disorders are about twice as likely to suffer also from a drug use disorder (abuse or dependence) compared with respondents in general. The same is true for those diagnosed with an antisocial syndrome, such as antisocial personality or conduct disorder. Similarly, persons diagnosed with drug disorders are roughly twice as likely to suffer also from mood and anxiety disorders.

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 Yellowstone Recovery offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

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. Yellowstone Recovery Center also provides outpatient services in order to best meet the needs of individuals. These outpatient services can be provided for individuals as they complete residential services and for individuals who are not in need of residential services.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Yellowstone Recovery Center provides adult Level III.5–Clinically Managed High-Intensity Residential Addiction and non-secure Mental Health Disorder services. Per the current State of Wyoming Substance Abuse Standards, a Level III.5 program provides services to include at least thirty (30) hours of structured services that are designed to treat persons who have significant social and psychological problems. When the client reaches a sustained level of functioning based on ASAM dimensional criteria, the client must be transferred to a less intensive level of care. Services include, but are not limited to, individual, group, and family, as indicated by client needs, medication education and management, educational groups, and occupational groups and recreational therapy. The goals of treatment are to promote abstinence from addiction substances/behaviors, to promote healthier behavior patterns, and to affect a global change in participants’ lifestyles, attitudes and values. The approach views disorders as goals that must be treated holistically.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.


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 & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Yellowstone Recovery Center believes family involvement in treatment is vital to the successful recovery of their clients. Family visits and contact are highly supported during the stay. In addition, they provide frequent family therapy opportunities to help heal the family unit. Examples include couples counseling, parenting, family unit counseling, group family therapy, and family recreational therapy. Mental health and addictions affects not only the individual but family relationships as well.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Yellowstone Recovery Center provides a holistic approach to treatment. They provide treatment for the whole person not just the addiction or mental illness. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

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

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.

Couples Treatment

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.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction.

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

Experiential therapy is integrated into many aspects of programming at Yellowstone Recovery Center. The variety of activities available for clients to choose from assist in restoring motor, social and cognitive functioning, build confidence, develop coping skills and social skills, and integrate skills learned in treatment into community settings. Examples of activities include creative arts (crafts, music, dance, drama, among others), sports, adventure programming, dance/movement, and leisure education, tai chi, meditation, and yoga.

Life Skills

As an individual enters treatment, it is likely they have become less interested in activities that in the past has brought them joy and comfort. The idea behind life skills therapy is to reunite individuals with those interests that they have been involved and to introduce new interests that will support long term recovery. Additionally, life skills therapy focuses on life and relationships. Life is about building and maintaining supportive relationships. They depend on others and others depend on them. Life skills therapy provides positive reinforcement for the development and improvement of life long relationships.

Nutrition Therapy

Few people are aware of the connection between nutrition and mental health disorders and addictions while they easily understand the connection between nutritional deficiencies and physical illness. Nutritional neuroscience is an emerging discipline shedding light on the fact that nutritional factors are intertwined with human cognition, behavior, and emotions. At Yellowstone Recovery Center they understand the role good nutritional plays in creating balance in life. It is truly amazing when they can watch the transformation of individual moods and outlook on life after implementing good healthy food to feed the mind, body, and spirit. Meals are planned based on the need for healing and focus on whole foods.

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.

Animal Therapy

Yellowstone Recovery Center utilizes a variety of animals to assist in Animal Therapy. Their resident cats and dogs are frequently part of group therapy and individual therapy bringing support and comfort for their residents. In addition, they utilize equine assisted therapy for residents to assist in building social, emotional, or cognitive functioning. Other animals the patient may see include their chickens who not only provide non-judgmental relationships but also nutrition for their residents.

Yellowstone Recovery Highlights:

Once an individual decides to seek treatment, their experienced therapists initiate assessment of the individual. Initial assessment includes gathering history of each individual including current difficulties. The next step is to determine current needs and what services will best address the needs of the individual.
Once clients have progressed through the residential program, they will enter the transitional phase of the program. During the transitional phase of the program, the client may decrease daily involvement in treatment activities and increase outside activities. Outside activities include employment and job searching for preparation to re-enter the community. This phase of the program equates to ASAM PPC Level III.1 Clinically Managed Low-Intensity Residential.
Yellowstone Recovery Center also provides crisis services as indicated by individual need. High-risk patients needing clinical treatment are 850 times more likely to commit suicide a week after being discharged from the hospital. Providing supportive treatment and crisis services for those individuals is vital to their recovery.
