Deer Hollow believes using alcohol and drugs is a maladaptive coping skill, often accompanied by underlying issues of trauma, mental health problems, personality disorders and environmental issues. Our therapists work hard each day to try to change the field by treating the underlying issues. While many treatment professionals say they understand addiction is disease, many still treat it like a moral issue. We recognize that our clients’ challenges, disturbances in their personality, and behavior changes are caused by brain changes. Most of our clients have a dual diagnosis, which means they are not only healing from addiction, but also mental health problems such as PTSD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and so on. We treat our patients with care, respect and understanding they are sick. Safety is our most important value. When our clients feel safe in our facility, they can start healing from their trauma and improve their lives. This is why there is great emphasis placed on engaging in activities that challenge the body, mind and spirit. Studies show that trauma recovery is most effective when the body is involved in the healing process. Clients engage in gym attendance multiple times weekly, yoga, CrossFit, meditation/mindfulness practices, seasonal softball, hiking, climbing, Focusing and Somatic Experiencing.
Deer Hollow specializes in working with First Responders at our Pioneer location. The clinical team has extensive history and cultural competence to effectively treat the often invisible wounds brought on by their professions. We have proven outcomes showing the successful work we have done with this unique population.
