Wyoming Recovery Philosophy

Substance abuse treatment at Wyoming Recovery careful tailors treatment plans to meet the learning style and health status of each client. The residential rehab takes a holistic approach to addiction treatment, addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the disease while allowing clients to adopt the recovery methods that work best for them. Effective and affordable, Wyoming Recovery’s drug and alcohol addiction program is designed to foster hope, promote healing and enable clients to live a long and fulfilling life in sobriety.

Areas of Specialization

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

ABOUT WYOMING RECOVERY

Wyoming Recovery, in Casper, Wyo., provides residential, outpatient, and Intensive Outpatient Programming for those dealing with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Specialized treatment for professionals is offered. Detoxification is available on-site and may involve medication-assisted treatment in the form of Suboxone if needed.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Wyoming Recovery begins with an assessment. Clients in need of detoxification will have 24-hour care and medication-assisted treatment as needed.

Residential treatment incorporates 12-Step programming, daily Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and individual counseling. Educational groups focus on anger management, spirituality, cognitive behavioral therapy, and pain management. Residents begin their day with a "goals group."

Partial day and evening programs are offered to accommodate clients' schedules. Outpatient programming meets three nights per week for three hours. The Intensive Outpatient Program provides nine hours of treatment each week.

Clients transition from one level of treatment to the next based on progress. The facility’s website specifies that there isn’t a fixed length of stay.

Following residential or Intensive Outpatient treatment, clients can participate in weekly continuing care sessions to prevent relapsing.

A specialized professional program for medical professionals and other executives is offered.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

A medical director leads the multidisciplinary staff comprised of certified addictions specialists, a clinical director, support technicians, family counselor, a registered nurse, and an acupuncturist.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The 15-bed facility is located in Wyoming’s second largest city, Casper, in the scenic heart of the Rocky Mountains. The open campus is within walking distance of Wyoming Medical Center.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Only two alumni have responded to a Rehabs.com poll to date and gave mixed reviews. “Basic small rehab, focused on recovery, not yoga or holistic junk. Focus on 12 steps,” wrote reviewer J.C. However, reviewer Cam noted poor management but called doctors and therapists "caring." Cam also called the director and tech incompetent, though an official response from the facility invited the reviewer to discuss their concerns with the company.

On Wyoming Recovery’s Facebook page, which the facility can manage, the center received an average 4.6 stars out of a possible five based on 58 reviews. “The tech's are amazing always there when you need something or just to talk,” wrote Marilyn, one of the 46 five-star reviewers. “I would highly recommend Wyoming Recovery to anyone looking for a better way of living.” [1]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

  • Treatment Effectiveness
The doctors and therapists are great. But the director and one tech are in competent. The staff member can not handle a person yelling at a phone. She says she fears for her life. This is a dual diagnosis center and she is to a afraid to face make clients. and the continued care is based off iop is not part of tech staff and they refuse treatment. Poor management but caring doctors and therapists. Not a good choice until management change and tech removed from a nod she can't handle.

A strength of facility was the recognized doctor name behind facility. However, staff members new to recovery. My son (the patient) told me of poor conduct by the staff. I emailed the doctor in charge of the facility and got no response. After a few years and two or three more rehabs my son died from a heroin overdose.
