The Walker Center - Residential and Outpatient Addiction Treatment Philosophy

At the Walker Center - Twin Falls, cognitive behavioral therapy (including moral reconation therapy and the self-change model) is combined with 12-step program principles to help clients gain self-esteem and build more productive lives after recovery. Most treatment occurs in group settings, but individual counseling is provided on an as-needed basis.

Areas of Specialization

  • Out Patient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • 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.

Dr. Lofgran makes all the medical decisions for the residents at the Center. Upon admission, vital signs are monitored and a Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment (CIWA) is completed if necessary. After the initial evaluation, any necessary medications are placed in lockup and are taken by the resident under the supervision of a member of the treatment team. The resident enters treatment activities as soon as initial assessment is completed, during the first day of residency. Laboratory work is available, if indicated by medical assessment. Additional medical care will be given according to individual needs. These services are optional and it is the patient's responsibility to pay for them. 360 Guide

Review by Contributors


The Walker Center in Idaho city Twin Falls provides outpatient treatment to adults dealing with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health conditions.

The Walker Center also operates a residential facility in East Gooding, Idaho.


A comprehensive evaluation at the beginning of treatment assesses substance abuse history, mental, and emotional conditions. The evaluation is used to create a treatment plan and problem list. During the three-hour assessment, counselors will identify barriers to treatment like a lack of transportation, employment, and related issues. Counselors will work with family members and referral services like probation officers and employers.

Outpatient programming is offered through two levels of treatment: high and low intensity. The high intensity program is geared toward those seriously pursuing sobriety while the low intensity program is designed for those in the early stages of change and not ready to fully commit to recovery.

Both outpatient programs incorporate 12-Step programs, family codependency counseling, problem solving skills, stress management and family communication skills. The center also uses evidence-based modalities like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and cognitive self-change (CSC). Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) may be used when appropriate to promote a positive identity.

Clients enrolled in the relapse prevention group will develop coping and intervention skills.


The Walker Center’s medical director is a board-certified family physician, and the facility also employs certified alcohol and drug counselors.
