Our Primary Care Program

A Higher Vision for Recovery

Alta Mira has developed an exceptional primary care treatment course. Our core recovery program takes a comprehensive clinical, holistic and individualized approach that goes above and beyond most top recovery programs. See below for more information on what makes this program so special.

About the Program

Our Primary Care Program provides clients with a custom treatment program lasting between 30 and 90 days.

Key elements:

  • Complete medical history and diagnostic workup
  • Extensive psychological and personality testing
  • Individualized treatment and post-treatment plans
  • Minimum of three individual therapy sessions per week
  • Collaboration with referral source, family members
  • Daily group therapy; multiple weekly educational seminars
  • Lifetime aftercare; including quarterly on-site “tune-ups”

Comprehensive & collaborative

We begin the recovery journey with a thorough evaluation of each client’s history with abuse and addiction. This involves a detailed discussion with each new client and, with their permission, collaboration with members of his or her support system including family members, friends, colleagues, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and interventionists.

Tailored to your needs

Armed with a base of information, we assist the client in developing an individualized course of treatment that addresses his or her specific needs. We then utilize a series of clinical and therapeutic exercises detailed in our client workbook, The Alta Mira Way, to walk each client through the four stages of recovery.

A holistic approach

Our program schedule is full and diverse.  We complement the core clinical work our clients do with a variety of weekly holistic activities that promote healing and restoration in all aspects of their lives.

Services Included

Alta Mira’s Primary Care Program includes these unique core services to create the best possible recovery path for you:

  • Psychological Testing

    We conduct extensive psychological testing on every client within ten days of admission. Our staff neuropsychologist leads clients through a battery of up to ten psychological tests. Test results inform treatment planning and often result in “ah-ha” moments for clients and the clinical team alike.

  • Individual Therapy

    We offer clients a minimum of three individual therapy sessions every week. These intensive sessions drive the healing process and expedite a full, lasting recovery. Our staff of licensed therapists, all of whom possess a master’s degree or higher, is accessible seven days a week.

  • Process Groups

    At Alta Mira, we’ve seen firsthand what countless clinical studies have proven: group therapy helps individuals recover hope, solve problems and grow. We provide a safe forum for clients to share their experiences and find inspiration by watching their peers overcome similar problems.

  • Family Program

    We understand how crucial it is to have the client’s loved ones be able to contribute and participate in the recovery process, and we work very hard to balance the client’s right to privacy and confidentiality with the clinical value of developing a true sober support system.

  • Holistic Services

    Alta Mira offers a variety of services that promote health and healing for the body, mind and soul, including: massage; acupuncture; personal training; yoga and tai chi; spiritual counseling; art and equine-assisted therapy; Native American ceremonies; cooking for recovery classes; and pet therapy, to name a few.

  • The Alta Mira Way Client Workbook

    We have developed a unique clinical model that is codified in our client workbook, The Alta Mira Way, that walks clients through Four Stages of recovery. Before leaving, each Alta Mira client will complete the written and experiential exercises detailed in the work book and be able to refer back to their Stage Work after leaving Alta Mira.

  • Continuing Care

    Each client at Alta Mira will leave with a comprehensive discharge and relapse prevention plan as well as access to alumni aftercare services. Included in the price of our programs are weekly alumni meetings and quarterly and annual alumni events following the successful completion of treatment.

  • Pet Program

    We understand that many people have a special bond with their pets, and the idea of leaving their animal home while they come to treatment presents a difficult dilemma. Under certain circumstances, Alta Mira may allow clients to bring a pet to treatment.

We offer a number of additional recovery services to assist our clients both before and after the treatment experience, either directly through our own staff or approved clinical providers at an additional cost to our Primary Care Program.

  • Intervention

    We work with some of the best interventionists in the country. If you require this service, our intake team will promptly connect you with a qualified interventionist who can assist you. The fee for this service will be paid directly to the provider.
