We don’t offer just any treatment services. We offer treatment services that work.

It’s not enough for an addiction treatment facility to offer a wide range of services. The clinical staff must thoroughly understand the science behind every service provided so that they know which ones are appropriate for your recovery. Plus, they need to be able to help you understand what your individualized treatment will entail. If you’re planning to commit weeks or even months of your life to intensive rehabilitation, then you have every right to know what kinds of addiction treatment services will be available to you. You should also know why each service is valuable, and how they all work together to create a unified, effective treatment plan.

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, our clinical advisory board has guided the thoughtful development of our addiction treatment services. Here is an overview of the science-based addiction treatment services offered at Elan Recovery + Wellness, and some of the reasons why they are essential parts of the recovery process:

Individual and Group Therapies

People come to treatment with different backgrounds and secondary diagnoses. With this in mind, our individual and group therapies provide social reinforcement that helps strengthen behaviors that encourage abstinence and promote a drug-free lifestyle. Individual therapy gives each of our guests an opportunity to build a rapport with their respective clinicians, thus allowing them to discuss any issues that they might not be comfortable revealing in a group setting. On the other hand, group therapy, which seems to be the treatment model of choice, allows our guests to explore and address their problems together.

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, we follow the social model of recovery by offering several different kinds of group therapy. Some groups are educational and topic-focused, such as the ones that work on:

  • Wellness
  • Spirituality
  • Setting boundaries
  • Relapse prevention
  • Anger management
  • Recovery action planning
  • Managing triggers and cravings

Still, the core of our group therapy program is our process groups, the intensive therapy sessions facilitated by our primary therapists. We focus on process groups because our guests consistently report that they contribute the most to their recoveries. An effective process group allows everyone in the room to actively explore recovery principles, coping skills, interpersonal conflict resolution, and emotional issues.

Mental Health Counseling

Mental health counseling helps clients accept and understand the underlying emotional issues that so often co-occur with addiction. Our research-based approach is beneficial for people who struggle with chronic emotional deregulation issues and impulsivity. Without help, these can result in long-term behavioral problems.

Skills Groups

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, our skills groups address the four primary areas of wellness that contribute the most to building an addiction-free life. They are:

  • Mindfulness
  • Distress tolerance
  • Emotional regulation
  • Interpersonal effectiveness

Relapse Prevention Planning

Relapse prevention planning helps our guests maintain their hard-earned sobriety. Before completing the program, each guest completes a written relapse prevention plan to follow after discharge. Each carefully crafted relapse prevention plan includes individualized behavioral, cognitive, emotional, and motivational coping techniques that will support long-term recovery.

Scientific Treatment Interventions at Elan Recovery + Wellness

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

We all have core beliefs that shape the way we perceive the world. These beliefs influence the way we think, affect the way we act, and construct our sense of reality. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows you to examine your core beliefs, your thoughts, your actions, and how they all affect your current situation— your reality. Once you and your therapist pinpoint harmful thoughts and behaviors, you can unlearn them and move forward. Overall, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help you reframe the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to addiction.

Shame Resiliency and Vulnerability Training

This portion of our treatment program is based on the groundbreaking work of Brené Brown, a research professor at The Graduate College of Social Work at the University of Houston. Shame resiliency and vulnerability training can help you understand and manage the emotional side of living a full life. After all, an emotional relapse can potentially lead to a physical one. At Elan Recovery + Wellness, we reject the idea that vulnerability is a weakness. Instead, we work to show our guests that they are loved because of their imperfections, not in spite of them.

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This objective, comprehensive approach combats harmful thoughts and behaviors by teaching you how to respond rationally to difficult situations. Like CBT, REBT can help you identify, address, and change the maladaptive thoughts and behaviors that contribute to addiction.

Motivational Enhancement and Interviewing (MET/MI)

Nobody is going to force you to do something that you don’t want to do. This simple but powerful truth is one that serves as the foundations of both Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). These modalities can help you identify why you get “stuck” during recovery and how you can increase your internal motivation to make positive changes.

Additional Treatment Services at Elan Recovery + Wellness

Medication for Cravings

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, our full-time psychiatric nurse practitioner and medical director are responsible for completing psychiatric and physical evaluations, prescribing medications, and doing weekly medication checks. The purpose of these treatment steps is to combat cravings.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, our treatment plans include assessments and clinical support for guests with dual diagnoses, or co-occurring disorders. The mental health conditions we treat include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and ADHD.

Experiential Therapy

The experiential therapy we offer at Elan Recovery + Wellness is designed to present addiction treatment and recovery concepts in a more hands-on environment. As the name suggests, this form of therapy is especially effective for guests who learn and retain information better through firsthand, active participation.

Biofeedback Therapy

Biofeedback is a form of therapy that uses electronic sensory devices to track a person’s biological signs. It is normally used to track involuntary bodily functions like blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing. In addiction treatment, biofeedback therapy can uncover unconscious responses to physical or emotional triggers.

Medical Conditions Monitoring

We do more than treat addiction and mental disorders. At Elan Recovery + Wellness, our medical director and nursing staff work hard to provide the best possible care to guests with co-occurring physical disorders. In most cases, medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and seizure disorders can be managed concurrently during addiction treatment.

Nutrition and Meal Planning

Every aspect of treatment at Elan Recovery + Wellness is designed to restore health. This includes nutritional health. Our nutrition groups provide information about maintaining a healthy diet and offer specific guidance about foods that can help repair any mineral deficiencies that stem from addiction. We even offer meal planning demonstrations and review grocery store shopping receipts!

Adaptive Testing

Elan Recovery + Wellness is currently the only private addiction and dual diagnosis treatment center in the world that utilizes adaptive testing. This process allows us to monitor every guest’s wellbeing on a daily basis. Tracking treatment progress through adaptive testing makes it easy to implement any necessary changes or adjustments to our guests’ individualized recovery plans.

Case Management

It is essential that you focus on your treatment. As such, our case manager will handle whatever the clinical treatment team believes is appropriate in your individual case. Such practical tasks might include filing FMLA or short-term disability paperwork, working with your employer’s HR department, staying in contact with parole officers, and helping arrange transportation to court dates.

Thoughtful Treatment

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, we wrap each client in a thoughtfully determined treatment plan specific to their needs, history of use, physical health, and emotional health, using the best practices and the most up-to-date research and clinical understanding. Please contact us today, and allow us to build an addiction plan that’s right for you, or for someone you love.
