At Treasure Valley Recovery we incorporate a holistic approach to treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. Our treatment incorporates the traditional Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step model along with several other evidence-based models. We also provide many experiential activities. Our clinicians customize the treatment plans for each individual depending on their different needs, culture or background. The goal at Treasure Valley Recovery is to instill long-lasting hope for each individual to achieve long-term recovery.
Our treatment includes several group therapy sessions every day. The clinician-to-resident ratio is 1:3 and our group sizes are limited to 8 residents. All of our clinicians are licensed with the state and hold a master’s-level degree. Through our group sessions the residents can interact with each other, support each other and hold each other accountable throughout their treatment. Residents also develop interpersonal relationships and learn to communicate courteously and effectively with one another.
We offer individual therapy to our residents as often as medically necessary, but at least once per week. This treatment is ideal for residents to address their issues in a more confidential atmosphere where personal concerns or questions can be addressed.
Our treatment at Treasure Valley Recovery begins with an Introductory Assessment. This assessment helps the clinicians develop a personalized treatment plan for each individual. They address goals to be achieved and major problem areas to focus on. As the individual progresses through treatment, our clinical team constantly reviews and updates the treatment plan.
We help each resident with a discharge plan. This plan includes a formal relapse-prevention plan, help to secure safe housing upon discharge, and information about different outpatient treatment programs.
We offer many experiential experiences that are designed to help the residents enjoy productive and fulfilling activities without the use of drugs or alcohol. The residents have a session following each activity to discuss what they learned or how they felt with their groups or in an individual setting. Some of the activities include gym time, Yoga, meditation and Equine Therapy. We also take the residents on a “super activity” once per week that is usually offsite for a few hours. This activity is designed to build character, improve physical and emotional health, and develop healthy relationships with each other.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an exciting therapy that has been shown to produce excellent results within the drug and alcohol treatment community. This therapy is usually one-on-one between our clinician and the individual. CBT can help the clinician get to the root of the addiction problem very quickly, thus increasing the effectiveness of our treatment program.
Our clinicians are trained to help with both substance-abuse issues and also mental illnesses that often accompany the substance abuse. The goal at Treasure Valley Recovery is to introduce balance into each individual’s life that will help them cope with both the addiction and the illness after they leave our treatment.
We offer Equine Therapy (horse therapy) to each individual about once per week. We have an amazing therapist who holds a master’s degree and specializes in Equine Therapy. Each session is one-on-one with the resident. Horses help with therapy because they are generally non-judgmental, have no preconceived expectations or motives, and they can mirror the behaviors and attitudes of the individuals they are working with.
The first 12-Step program began in the 1930’s with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and continues to provides an excellent framework for treating alcohol and substance abuse. This program has grown to be widely used with not only alcoholism, but also substance abuse and many other addictive behaviors. The clinicians at Treasure Valley Recovery are able to take the 12-Step Program and customize it for each individual. We are careful to consider any cultural or spiritual preferences when developing each program.
