Green Mountain Treatment Center Philosophy

Located on 72 acres, with a tranquil view of the New Hampshire lakes and White Mountains, Green Mountain Treatment Center provides an optimal location for recovery. We offer gender separate, addiction treatment for adults.

At the heart of our treatment program is our clinical team. We utilize master’s level clinicians to deliver our unique integrated treatment approach. Our clients experience individual therapy, therapeutic small process groups, specialty and experiential therapy groups, motivational interviewing, CBT and DBT modalities and EMDR trauma therapy, all within the Stages of Change Model framework. At Green Mountain Treatment Center, we rely on the gifts and talents of our clinicians to help lower barriers and prime our clients for the change process at hand, which is to internalize the daily design for living of the 12 steps, become useful and purposeful members of society and reach their personal goals.

We know that addiction affects every area of life and therefore a well balanced plan for recovery involves addressing the challenge as a complete life change. Far too frequently, we see that newcomers stop using and engage in the 12-steps, but fall short of change in other critical areas. We help them with this end-to-end transformation process through a balanced, 12-step driven clinical approach that encourages change in all areas of life. Through meditation, mindfulness, dietary health, and body-centered therapies such as yoga and fitness, we support the universal change that helps recovery flourish and gives our men and women the opportunity for a full, healthy life.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Green Mountain is a place where people go to get well. The staff and clinical team help guide broken individuals through there process of early recovery. They truly care about the people and the outcome. The best part of being a part of this team is seeing transformations happen on a daily basis. As a person in Recovery myself, I know how vital it is to feel like you can relate to people to are guiding you through the fear in the beginning. GMTC has a very unique and special peer to peer support woven throughout the program. This holds depth and weight for the person struggling. I wouldn�t be sober today if I didn�t have someone in Recovery guiding me through and pushing me to walk through the fear that held me captive in addiction.

Green Mountain Treatment Center helped me discover meaning and purpose in my life. I arrived broken after years of trying to stop drinking and using drugs a variety of different ways but never with any sort of success. At GMTC I was given a design for living that works in rough going and I have been clean and sober ever since. I can�t articulate my gratitude for Green Mountain Treatment Center.

There is a fundamental difference between �sobriety� and �recovery�. Green Mountain harnesses 12-step centered philosophies combined with clinical services to attack the disease of mind, body, and spirit from all angles. I�ve personally seen clients enter the facility, nervous fear-driven individuals in the depths of despair, emerge on the other side brimming with hope and a newfound love of life. While Green Mountain may not provide hot-stone massages and infinite pools for their clientele, they constantly strive to lay out a solution to a progressive, chronic, and fatal illness. One only needs to possess the honesty and willingness to do the work, and their life will transform.
