See More Info on Addiction Treatment Therapy


In April of 2011, the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) redefined addiction as “a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry.” It was the first time a leading organization of addiction physicians had declared what research had suggested for years, that addiction was a brain disease. ASAM also stated for the first time that the disease of addiction has biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. It follows then, that in order to effectively treat addiction, we need to address the bio-psycho-social-spiritual implications. At Alta Mira, we have created an innovative and unique curriculum that revolves around these four core areas. Every morning, we incorporate a 75 minute lecture on a topic that focuses on the theme of the day (Monday is Neurobiology, Tuesday is Psychology, Wednesday is Social, Thursday is Spiritual, Friday is Integration and Saturday is Application). Every afternoon, there is a 75 minute experiential workshop that further expands on the daily theme.
