Our treatment at Moonlight Mountain Recovery incorporates a holistic approach to treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. We utilize the traditional Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step model along with several other evidence-based models. We also include many experiential activities. We are able to customize our treatment plans and tailor them to different needs depending on culture or background. Our goal is to instill long-lasting hope and for each individual to achieve long-term recovery.

We offer several group therapy sessions every day. Our clinician-to-resident ratio is 1:3 and our group sizes are limited to 8 residents. Our clinicians hold a master’s level degree and are licensed with the state. Our group sessions allow residents to interact with each other, support each other and hold each other accountable as they work through their obstacles together. Residents also practice developing interpersonal relationships and communicating courteously and effectively with one another.

Residents receive individual therapy as often as medically necessary, but at least once per week. This treatment gives residents an opportunity to address their issues in a more confidential atmosphere where personal issues can be addressed safely.

All residents who enter treatment will start with an Introductory Assessment. This assessment will help the clinicians develop a personalized treatment plan for each resident. They will address goals to be achieved and major problem areas to work on. As the resident progresses through treatment, the treatment plan is reviewed and updated by our clinical team.

Each resident will receive help with a discharge plan. This plan includes help to secure safe housing upon discharge, a formal relapse-prevention plan and information about different outpatient treatment options.

We offer many experiential activities every day that are designed to help the residents learn to enjoy worthwhile and fulfilling activities without the use of alcohol or drugs. Residents have the opportunity to discuss these activities with their groups or in an individual setting. Some of the activities include Yoga, gym time, meditation and Equine Therapy. We also provide a “super activity” once per week that takes residents out of the facility for a few hours to enjoy a variety of activities designed to build character, improve physical and emotional health, and nurture healthy relationships with other.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been shown to produce excellent results within the drug and alcohol treatment community. This treatment is generally one-on-one between our clinician and the resident. CBT helps the clinician get to the root of the addiction problem very quickly, thus helping the treatment at our facility to be more effective.

Our clinicians are trained to help with substance-abuse problems and also mental illnesses that often accompany the substance abuse. Our goal is to introduce balance into the resident’s life that will help them cope with both the addiction and the illness after they leave Moonlight Mountain Recovery.

About once per week we invite our residents to participate in Equine Therapy (horse therapy). Our master’s level clinician specializes in Equine Therapy and each session is one-on-one with the resident. Horses are amazing animals that are utilized more and more with alcohol and addiction recovery. They are generally non-judgmental, have no preconceived expectations or motives and they can mirror the attitudes and behaviors of the individuals they are working with.

The 12-Step Program provides an effective framework for treating alcohol and substance abuse problems. The first 12-Step program began with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in the 1930’s. This approach has since grown to be widely used with not only alcoholism, but also substance abuse and many other addictive behaviors.

At Moonlight Mountain Recovery we take the 12-Step Program and customize it for each individual. We are careful to consider any spiritual or cultural preferences when developing each program.
