Moonlight Mountain Recovery uses a holistic approach to treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. Our program combines the traditional Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step model with a therapeutic community model as well as experiential activities. We can customize our treatment plans to accommodate any type of culture or background. Our program is designed to instill long-lasting hope and achieve long-term recovery.

The majority of each client’s structured treatment time is spent in daily group therapy and psycho-educational classes. Groups are limited to a maximum of 12 clients and are conducted by a licensed clinician. These groups allow clients to address specific issues related to their substance abuse and its consequences. In group therapy, clients learn to elicit social support, develop interpersonal relationships, and give and receive feedback from their peers. Moonlight Mountain Recovery counselors use group techniques from a variety of sources.

Individual counseling will happen as per assessment needs. All residents will receive Individual treatment while at Moonlight Mountain Recovery. This treatment gives the residents time to address individual issues in a more confidential atmosphere where very personal issues can be addressed in safety.

Residents entering Moonlight Mountain Recovery will undergo an Introductory Assessment. Based on this assessment and the resultant clinical diagnosis, staff at Moonlight Mountain Recovery will create an individualized treatment plan for each new resident. The treatment plan identifies goals to be achieved and major problem areas to be addressed. The treatment plan is reviewed and updated by the clinical team as the resident progresses through treatment.

Discharge planning includes the securing of safe housing upon discharge, the development of a relapse prevention plan and identifying where the best outpatient treatment will be.

These activities, which will be conducted every day, are designed to help the resident learn that he or she can have activities that are fun and fulfilling without the use of drugs or alcohol. Residents will discuss experiential activities in groups and individual therapy. Other experiential activities are created to help develop a stronger inner self. These may include Yoga, gym time, Equine Therapy and meditation. Once a week, there will be a super activity that takes residents out of the center for most of the day and give them experiences that will help build character, increase health, and help the resident become active in life again.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is what makes Moonlight Mountain Recovery the best place to seek lasting recovery and healing. This type of therapy is typically a one-on-one approach that includes a therapist designing a recovery plan for you or your loved one. Your custom recovery plan is determined by what the therapist uses to accompany the therapy sessions that you will participate in. These sessions become a time for the therapist to understand you or your loved one to better assist in understanding addiction and how to overcome it.

CBT is optimal because it allows the therapist to get the to the roots of the addiction more quickly, and treat it more effectively. Though there are general commonalities in addiction, each person is different and thus must be dealt with differently. CBT is structured and directive and you or your loved one will play a major role in the therapy received.

Through careful assessment within a growing relationship, therapists are able to determine whether you or your loved one needs some level of Dual Diagnosis Therapy (DDT). DDT is a treatment therapy that considers and diagnoses mental illness(es) that you or your loved one may suffer from. These illnesses often accompany addiction.

The goal is to introduce a balance into you or your loved one’s life that has never been discovered, teaching you how to cope with the addiction and illness after you leave the comfort of Moonlight Mountain Recovery. Our hope is that you will feel as comfortable in your everyday environments as you do at Moonlight Mountain Recovery.

This is always one of our residents’ favorite activities. About once a week, you can expect to participate in Equine Therapy (horse therapy). Equine Therapy involves activities such as grooming, feeding, haltering and leading a horse. This is all supervised by a mental health professional that specializes in this type of therapy. Many of the benefits of equine therapy are likely due to the nature of the animals with which the patient and equine therapist are interacting. Horses are typically non-judgmental, have no preconceived expectations or motives, and are highly effective at mirroring attitudes and behaviors of the humans with whom they are working.

The most common addiction recovery program is known as “The 12-Step Program”. Twelve-Step programs are well-known for use in recovery from addictive or dysfunctional behaviors. The first 12-Step program began with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) in the 1930s. The 12-Step approach has since grown to be the most widely used approach in dealing with not only alcoholism, but also drug abuse and various other addictive or dysfunctional behaviors.

Though there are pros and cons to every therapy approach, there is a reason why the 12-Step Program is so popular. This time-tested program has helped millions of people just like you or your loved one find relief from addiction. Moonlight Mountain strategically uses the 12-Step Program within addiction-specific customized treatment program.

At a glance, the 12-Step Program is a line-upon-line approach to admitting that the respective addiction has become unmanageable, recognizing of powers greater than the addiction and yourself, carefully making decisions and taking inventory, and assisting in the progress of others in their fight against addiction.

As mentioned, there are several benefits to the 12-Step Program, but Moonlight Mountain Recovery carefully honors confidentiality and cultural/spiritual differences when taking you or your loved one through treatment.
