What to Expect During Your Stay


During your stay at Alta Mira, you will be prescribed a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, as it is not uncommon for one to suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder. During rehab you can focus solely on recovering and reaching these goals:

  • A safe and successful detox
  • Reducing and eliminating withdrawal symptoms
  • Learning the skills and tools needed to prevent future relapses
  • Addressing any co-occurring mental health disorders
  • Gaining control of your life

When you make a commitment to your treatment plan including ongoing care after active treatment has stopped, you are much more likely to have success in recovery from alcohol use disorder. The team at Alta Mira will you help you or your loved one reach these goals and live a healthier more fulfilling life.

How We Treat Co-Occurring Disorders


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

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