Mountain Peak Recovery Philosophy
It is the mission of Mountain Peak Recovery to provide the very best therapeutic environment that will enable individuals and families affected by substance use, and disorders to achieve learning that is conducive to lifelong recovery. It is further our mission to bring light to darkness of all kinds, which occurs in the lives of the people we serve. We believe that mistakes are opportunities to learn and grow.
We desire to help everyone we come in contact with, learn from the mistakes in their lives, and put that learning toward lasting change and constant improvement leading to lives of joy, fulfillment and purposeful meaning.
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.
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.
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
AAT works with the nervous system to decrease the body’s reactivity to stressful or negative life events and clears the held trauma/stress from the body. There are 6 steps to AAT, with 5 of them being self applied by the client.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR):
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
Creative Arts Therapy:
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
This term describes one-on- one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
