Many of the staff members at Mount Regis have at one time battled addiction themselves, and can easily empathize with clients who have chosen to travel the bumpy road to recovery. At Mount Regis, clients will discover a calming and inviting environment in which to realize their potential, and move towards a fulfilling life free from drugs and alcohol.
Areas of Specialization
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.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
