How Alta Mira's Drug Addiction Treatment is Different: Our Model of Care


For someone in the depths of drug addiction, recovery can feel like an unattainable goal. After living under the influence of substances, it can be hard to imagine functioning without them. But it’s important to know that addiction can be overcome and a clean and sober life can be attained. No matter how many times an addict has tried and failed, or how long they’ve been struggling with the disease, recovery is possible. It’s never too late to get treatment.

Drug addiction can cause significant distress and impairment in a person’s life and the lives of their loved ones. Clients who begin their recovery process at an evidence-based drug rehab center have an excellent opportunity to reclaim their lives.

Safe, Comfortable Detox

Your inpatient drug addiction treatment program starts with our medically-supervised detox. Next, our neuropsychologist engages you in comprehensive diagnostic testing and assessment, the results of which help us to design the best treatment plan for your needs and goals.

Individual Treatment Plans

Equipped with your treatment plan, you begin participating in our full clinical program that includes psychotherapy (individual, group, and family), medication management, life skills training, holistic healing practices, and experiential activities.

Comprehensive Continuing Care

We are committed to a collaborative care approach to drug treatment, inclusive of all outside treatment professionals who are already working with our clients. We recognize the role of each doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, hospital, or treatment center is vital to the client’s well-being and successful recovery. Therefore, we engage all outside professionals before admissions, throughout treatment, and post-discharge to ensure the best possible results for the client.

Positive Treatment Outcomes

We care about our client’s outcomes and work with an independent third-party research group, Vista Research Group, to evaluate our clients’ progress both during and following their residential treatment at Alta Mira.

Effective Treatments For Co-Occurring Disorders With Drug Addiction


Co-Occurring Disorders

When clients first walk through our doors at Alta Mira, many are sometimes unaware they may have untreated mental health issues which may be contributing to their struggle with drug addiction. Treating the symptoms of drug addiction alone may not lead to lasting recovery if the co-occurring disorder remains undiagnosed and untreated.

Our approach provides for the most accurate diagnosis possible, enabling our team to customize an effective drug addiction treatment plan to fit your unique needs and goals, providing a pathway to a more authentic, productive, and healthy life.

Evidence-Based Treatment Modalities

We use evidence-based modalities in our residential addiction treatment programs, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) (where appropriate).

Accurate Diagnosis

From your initial psychiatric evaluation to your individualized neuropsychological testing, we work to develop the most accurate diagnostic profile possible. Depending on each individual client’s detox, identifying underlying co-occurring issues can take several weeks.

Appropriate Medications

Following the initial psychiatric evaluation, clients meet with our psychiatrist weekly while they are in residential treatment with us. Using genetic testing (when appropriate) can help clients get on medications that work better for them with fewer side effects.

How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Drug Addiction


The Challenge

Helping a loved one who is struggling with drug addiction can be a long and heartbreaking journey. It can be hard to help someone, particularly if they don’t want help or if they live far away. Many families wait years beyond the time that they first thought about intervening.

Get Help for Yourself

If you have a loved one who is suffering from drug addiction, one of the first things you can do is take care of yourself by attending peer support meetings like Al-Anon or Nar-Anon.

Consider an Interventionist

The longer you wait for someone to “hit bottom,” the more their disease advances. You can actually increase the chance of a successful outcome by intervening on your loved one before their disease progresses to a more dangerous level. However, organizing your family to set limits and boundaries to get a loved one into rehab can be challenging.

Hiring a professional interventionist can help the family get organized as a team, prepare to speak to the addict in a coordinated way, to give your loved one the best possible chance of successfully arriving in treatment. Interventionists can also be helpful during and after the treatment experience, providing support and coaching to the family to ensure that the patient completes treatment. If you are considering an intervention, please contact one of our admissions advisors.

Struggling with Drug Addiction?

Recovery is Possible

Lasting Change for a Better Life


The Courage to Change

Lasting change takes time. It can take six weeks to change a simple habit. Changing behavior after years or decades of drug addiction can be very challenging. Learning how to develop clean and sober behaviors, effectively deal with triggers and stressors, take medication as prescribed, and make healthy lifestyle changes to support long-term recovery can take time.

Better Drug Treatment Outcomes

Our 90-day program provides the structure, support and time to learn a new way of living to give clients the best possible outcome. Studies show that individuals should participate in drug treatment for at least 90 days to see the best results. However, the best indicator of success is not the duration of the program, but the mutual cooperation between the recovering addict and the treatment center, as they plan for continuing care after finishing the program.

Working Together

We understand that in order for treatment to be successful, we must listen closely and truly understand your needs, aspirations, personal history, and treatment goals. All members of our care team align closely with you so that you feel safe, respected, and ready to do your work. With this approach, Alta Mira co-creates a profound healing experience with you so you can achieve your recovery goals and reclaim your life.
