Addiction Treatment Services
Clients at Santé Center for Healing start their path to recovery with a professional assessment. In this assessment, our team collects information about all aspects of the client’s life, including any psychiatric, spiritual, health, family, and clinical data. With this information, we make recommendations on the professional’s ability to return to work, as well as whether or not the individual requires further treatment.
Before a treatment program can truly begin, the client needs to rid their body of any substances of abuse. In our medical detox program, doctors and nurses offer round-the-clock care. This care can include medications that lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Substances that generally require medical support to detox from include:
- Prescription opioids
Detox typically lasts four to 10 days, but is different for everyone. For this reason, our team crafts customized detox plans for each client.
After a professional assessment, if the client needs our residential level of care, they will individually and collectively interact with our tenured staff of psychiatrists, addictionologists, psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, certified addiction nurses, licensed dietitians, and masters level therapists who have additional credentialing and certifications in EMDR, CSAT, ACT, DBT, CBT, EFT, PTSD, motivational interviewing, psychodrama, and grief and loss.
Some of our more unique residential treatment characteristics are:
- Individualized treatment plans and individual therapy
- Dual diagnosis and polyaddiction treatment
- 12-Step Program principles
- Shame resiliency groups utilizing Connections Curriculum – empirically based strategies to help clients recognize shame as a universal
- experience and create a foundation for shame resilience
- Experiential therapies including high and low ropes course, equine-assisted therapy, music therapy, and art therapy
- Nutritional counseling
- Medication management
- Group sessions with a physical trainer
- Massage therapy
Our residential program also features gender-specific groups, including:

- Women’s alcohol rehab program
- Men’s drug rehab program

Intensive Outpatient Program
Santé’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) addresses the same issues as those outlined in the Residential Program overview. Program length, similarly, is based on goals achieved; some complete IOP in 24 weeks while others may take a little longer. Phases (based on goals achieved) structure the content and attendance frequency from three nights per week to one night per week. Some of our more unique IOP characteristics are:
- Phase One consists of 10 hours of group per week, usually split into three night sessions per week
- Phase Two consists of seven hours of group per week, usually achieved in two nights per week
- Phase Three consists of three hours of group per week, all completed in one night per week
- Individual therapy is spread throughout all phases
- Program completion dates and phases are individualized
- Clients can come from another treatment center or be assessed initially for needing this level of care
Santé also works with clients to improve their quality of life in a less acute level of care than residential or intensive outpatient. Santé’s clinicians and other licensed professionals are dedicated to helping individuals identify, adapt and effectively deal with life’s challenges – from addiction to depression to grief.

Addiction impacts both the addict and the addict’s loved ones. It tears apart families and destroys lives, striking at the core of relationships and human intimacy. Santé understands that the recovery process requires healing of individuals, couples and families, through versatile addiction treatment programs and addiction therapy services.
Offerings for Family Support include, but are not limited to:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Support from Santé’s family communications coordinator
- Family therapy
- Educational series the first few weeks of treatment
- Family & friends support group offered twice/week on campus and once/week on an online platform

Individual therapy is at the core of everything we do at Santé. We believe that this individualized support is key to progressing through treatment. It creates a safe space for clients to be open about their struggles and past traumas. It also forces more reluctant clients to engage, rather than passively watching a group discussion unfold in front of them. Individual counseling provides a place to process their progress as well as unpack any setbacks.
At Santé, we want to make your recovery as easy and convenient as possible. For this reason, we offer telemedicine as an option for our outpatient clients. After an initial counseling session in our office, clients have the opportunity to attend their individual sessions via video conference. This option is ideal for those with busy lives that still want to commit themselves to maintaining their recovery.
Intensive Therapy Workshops
Santé’s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Trauma
This highly concentrated 4-day Therapy Intensive identifies and addresses each attendee’s stuck points preventing the necessary footing to move past trauma-related symptoms and conditions. This intensive trauma therapy experience helps attendees face trauma (sexual, physical, emotional) in a safe, serene, supportive environment primarily using an innovative approach from Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Santé’s Therapy Intensives also integrates DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and experiential therapy like Equine Therapy and Art Therapy.
Santé’s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Codependency
This 4-day Intensive identifies and addresses each attendee’s stuck points preventing the necessary footing to move past symptoms and conditions that maintain their codependency. Codependence is often misunderstood to be someone who chooses to assist individuals in their addictive behaviors. More accurately, codependence is a manner of learning the skills to survive in a chaotic environment. Spending a significant amount of time using these survival skills can take over healthier ways of living; hence, day-to-day ways of thinking lead to continual stress and anxiety and significantly interfere with our most important relationships. Santé’s Therapy Intensive: Recovering from Codependency, developed by our Licensed Staff Psychologist Dr. Faye Reimers, and facilitated by a multidisciplinary team to bring rapid healing and change to those with unresolved codependent behavior that prevents them from fully living.
Aftercare, Relapse Prevention, and Alumni Support
Our main goal is for our clients to live a life in recovery. They learn to be aware of their issues and gain the skills to resolve them. They will discover how to prevent relapses, identify slipping signs and live without the feelings of shame or guilt that often accompany their diagnosis.
Recovery is not something that is completed upon leaving treatment; it is an on-going process of learning and personal growth. It is important to stay connected and know that Santé wants you to succeed through your personal journey that is Recovery. The Alumni Coordinator exists to keep the lines of communication open between alumni of Santé and the Center itself.
