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 working with horses. 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 of these therapies are even good forms of exercise.

Substance Use Disorder Treatment

“Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry.” Addiction is characterized by an inability to consistently abstain, impairment in controlling behaviors, relentless craving, and associated consequences (medical, relational, legal, etc.). Left untreated and without recovery, it often progresses into a fatal disease.

For those suffering with substance use disorders and addiction, there is no need to feel alone. 22.5 million people (8.5% of the US population) aged 12 or older needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem in 2014. (SAMHSA’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health)

Mental Health/Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Mental illness (or mental health disorders) refers to a wide range of mental health conditions, including but not limited to: anxiety, bipolar, depression, PTSD or psychosis. These affect mood, thinking and behavior. Though many (if not most) people have mental health concerns occasionally, the concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect an individual’s ability to function. 

When a substance abuse problem and a mental health issue are both present, it is called a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Dealing with substance abuse is difficult, and it’s further compounded when an individual also struggles with mental health. The mental health issues and the substance abuse addiction each have their own unique symptoms and they also affect each other. These individuals need a medical and clinical team best trained to meet their needs. 

Trauma Treatment

Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening with lasting adverse effects on functioning and well-being. 

Research shows that individuals who have experienced trauma have a higher percentage of substance abuse and addiction compared to those who have not had such experiences. If trauma goes unaddressed, associated consequences compound and progress with radiating effects on individuals – psychologically, physically and socially. 

Our clinical team identifies, addresses, and starts individuals on path to trauma-resolution. Read more about Santé Center for Healing’s Trauma Treatment.

Problematic Sexual Behavior

Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB) is a spectrum of disorders characterized by obsessive thoughts and acting out. These repetitive sexual behaviors often exceed a person’s relationship commitments, personal values, and/or self-control. 

Many individuals act out sexually during active drug addiction/use, yet typically this is not discovered or addressed in many clinical settings. However, if not addressed, there can be an escalation in PSB, and substance abuse recovery can remain allusive or set individuals up for relapse.

With new research, awareness, intervention and treatments, comes hope with Santé Center for Healing’s Problematic Sexual Behavior Treatment.

Disordered Eating Treatment

Santé Center for Healing treats those struggling both substance abuse and co-occurring disordered eating. Why? Disordered eating often co-occurs with addiction. “Up to 50% of individuals with disordered eating abused alcohol or illicit drugs, a rate five times higher than the general population.” – National Eating Disorders Association    

Because disordered eating is a life-threatening medical illnesse often further complicated by substance abuse, Santé’s staff works to address both issues comprehensively and simultaneously to achieve complete recovery.

Professional-Specific Treatment

Professionals, like all people, are susceptible to the disease of addiction. The unique challenges they face combined with the personality traits it takes to get through rigorous educational and training processes can lead to a higher risk for substance abuse disorders, behavioral addictions or disruptive behaviors.  

Professionals with addiction need to be appropriately evaluated, comprehensively treated, and receive an evidence-based continuum of care and monitoring to ensure they are in sustained recovery and unimpaired for their professional pursuits and service.
