For more than twenty years, Santé Center for Healing’s clinical staff has worked individually with clients and their families to identify and address unresolved trauma at the core of substance abuse disorders, eating disorders, problematic sexual behavior, and other process/behavioral addictions. In addition to assessments, detox, residential programming, intensive outpatient, transitional living, addiction therapy services, family education and support, ongoing alumni support, and professional education courses, Santé offers two different highly effective 4-day Therapy Intensives: Recovering from Trauma and Recovering from Codependency.

Both Therapy Intensives offer opportunities to fast-track healing by addressing each attendee’s maladaptive thoughts, cognitive errors, and avoidance behaviors that prevent sustained recovery. Santé Intensives occur in a safe, serene, supportive group environment using a skill-based innovative approach from Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), coupled with experiential therapies such as DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Equine Therapy, Art Therapy and Ropes (not available for TL & IOP) activities. Upon completion of a Therapy Intensive, participants leave with the confidence and ability to understand and re-conceptualize their traumatic event(s) or codependency and adaptive coping strategies to maintain and continue their growth.

Our Addiction Therapy Services

Santé is proud to offer a wide variety of therapies so that we can craft individualized plans for each of our clients. Our addiction therapies and modalities currently include:

Experiential Therapy

This type of therapy can involve anything from ropes courses (not available for TL & IPO) to yoga. The point is to let people focus on something other than themselves and their issues. Experiential therapy is great for relieving stress and developing new hobbies. Some forms of this therapy are even good forms of exercise.


Psychotherapy is a blanket term for a variety of counseling options. However, all involve a therapist talking with a client with the goal of processing emotions and adjusting behaviors. Which methods counselors use depends on what type of interactions the clients respond to well.

Family Therapy

Having a support system is vital for addiction recovery. Family therapy works to build and strengthen that support system. Struggles with substance abuse don’t just affect the person with the addiction; they affect everyone that cares about that person. Repairing these relationships makes it easier to move forward toward recovery.

Group Therapy

Sometimes, it helps to hear about what others are struggling with so that we can address our own issues. This is where group therapy comes in. In these groups, clients learn and grow together with their peers in treatment. This therapy helps rebuild sober social skills, too.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is at the core of everything that clients do in treatment. In these sessions, therapists place their focus on the issues and emotions of the client in front of them. This allows for intensive, customized care that the client can count on during their time at Santé.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders often co-occur with addiction. In these cases, our staff works to address both issues to achieve complete recovery. Our eating disorder treatment is part of Santé’s dual diagnosis approach.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma is a leading cause of substance abuse problems. Some people begin to use drugs or alcohol to cope with their trauma, rather than processing it in a healthy way. For this reason, we offer intensive trauma therapy to any client who needs it.

Problematic Sexual Behavior Treatment

Sex addiction can keep people from forming meaningful relationships and leading the lives they want to live. Santé offers comprehensive treatment for problematic sexual behavior. We also monitor and treat clients for any other addictive behaviors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is immensely beneficial to those struggling with addiction. This type of treatment can help clients cope with stress, manage mental illness symptoms, and resolve conflicts more effectively.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

An offshoot of CBT, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on connecting specific thoughts to negative behaviors. In DBT, clients learn how to recognize emotions and let them pass, rather than allowing them to take over.
