Areas of Specialization
SOMATIC EXPERIENCING® (SE) Trauma Treatment
SE psychobiological trauma resolution is a potent method for resolving trauma symptoms and relieving chronic stress. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming anxiety, depression, symptoms of PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
Through a systematic use of Neurofeedback and applied neuro-technologies, we retrain brainwaves and develop new neural pathways to enable clients to have more adaptive brain functioning. This results in clients exhibiting better decision-making, more impulse control, less anxiety, better focus, and feeling more at peace. Neurofeedback has been shown to support detoxification, treatment retention, relapse prevention, trauma integration, mood stabilization, and sound sleep. Neurofeedback is not covered by insurance and is offered for an additional fee.
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Equine assisted therapy has shown evidenced-based efficacy in clients with substance use and co-occurring disorders, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. Research currently reveals that the human animal bond can enhance a person’s life on many levels including emotional growth, increasing concentration levels, boosting self confidence, anxiety reduction, and increasing self-efficacy.

How do I thank each of you? It is impossible, I am and always will be deeply indebted to you and the other staff members at A Sober Way Home for personally investing in my son. You can pay people to do a job, but you can’t pay them to care and it is very evident that you all care very much for Kyle and the other clients.- Terri
Your direct, no-nonsense approach and ultimate trust in Martha’s potential rebuilt her self-worth, reestablished her self-esteem and rekindled her spirit and zest for life. No matter where her life choices lead her, your program has built a base and provided the tools for her to lead a sober and productive life.- Debby & Lee
So ‘Thank You’ doesn’t even come close to the gratitude and respect that I have for all of you who work for the lives of all who come to you! You save lives! You saved my sons life!- Jeannie
Your staff has done an amazing job addressing these challenges. They seem to understand that there is a proven regimen that is successful in treating the disease of addiction, but also that each individual poses a unique set of challenges and the manner in which the tools are applied must be tailored to each person.- Darin & Tracy
