Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Substance Use Disorder Treatment

At Peak View Behavioral Health, we treat substance use disorders by treating the whole person—taking into account each individual’s unique history and needs. Our medically-monitored program uses evidence-based approaches along with the Hazelden/Betty Ford COR-12 Program for Opioid Dependence.

Upon or prior to admission, clients will receive a comprehensive assessment by one of our masters level clinicians. This assessment would include creating a detailed history of the individual’s substance use—including drug of choice, length of use, and the impacts of substance use (DUIs, missed time from work or school, broken relationships, blackouts, etc.). This will give our staff insight into how best to build a personalized recovery plan. Addiction treatment is different for everyone, and we believe that understanding how a substance use disorder developed will help us help those we serve build resiliency and a long-lasting recovery.

The comprehensive substance use disorder recovery program at Peak View includes:

  • Medically monitored detoxification
  • Dual diagnosis (co-occurring disorders) treatment plans
  • Intensive outpatient programming for adults
  • Relapse prevention
  • Discharge planning

A Deeper Dive Into Detoxification

Our fully licensed detoxification unit provides:

  • Around the clock monitoring by our highly trained medical staff
  • Skilled treatment of withdrawal symptoms common to a range of substances—and combinations of substances
  • A comfortable and safe detox area
  • The creation of a continuing care plan for each person who we serve
  • A commitment to a quick process with minimal discomfort

Recovery Via Acute Stabilization and Dual Diagnosis

The next step in substance use disorder treatment occurs in a welcoming, home-like atmosphere at Peak View that includes outdoor courtyards, gymnasiums, and plenty of windows to allow natural light to enter each individual’s room.

During acute treatment, each person we serve works with their treatment team in group settings that provide education and encouragement while empowering them to move to a life free of drugs or alcohol. To help make that possible, we also treat co-occurring mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and disorders grounded in trauma. Addressing these dual diagnoses is essential because ongoing sobriety and good mental health are deeply intertwined. 

A variety of counseling techniques may be employed to serve the individual needs of each person in treatment. These include:

  • Individual treatment planning and group therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Recreational therapy
  • Trauma informed care

Our Commitment to a Continuum of Care

Many people who seek out detox and addiction treatment services to address a substance use disorder are worried that they will not be able to maintain their sobriety once treatment comes to an end. To address that concern, Peak View Behavioral Health is committed to what we call a “continuum of care.” That means you will continue to have access to resources and support as your recovery journey gets underway.

When appropriate, that continuum of care might include participation in Peak View’s intensive outpatient program. The program includes group therapy sessions, physician oversight, connection to community based recovery resources, and transitional help in moving toward productive activities.

The early days of recovery can, in fact, be quite challenging, and our continuum of care seeks to ease those challenges. Still, relapse is quite common. The most important thing to remember is that a relapse is not the end of your sobriety. After a relapse, a return to treatment can help you address the issues and triggers that may have led to your return to drugs or alcohol, giving you an even firmer foundation from which to relaunch your recovery journey.

Our promise to you

Peak View Behavioral Health is Always a Judgment-Free Zone

Many people are slow to seek treatment for a substance use disorder (or to do so after they have experienced a relapse) because they fear they will be harshly judged. Our promise to you is that you will receive compassionate, judgment-free care when you seek treatment at Peak View Behavioral Health.
