Treatment Insights

Trauma is often the underlying factor for may additive style behaviors including alcohol, substance abuse and process addictions. Trauma can have a significant impact on one’s life even if a single event or a reoccurrence over an extended period. Trauma also severely effects the way internal information is processed and impacts relationships with family, friends and co-workers. The trauma-informed addiction treatment program at Luminance was developed to address the internal process and cross-effects of trauma, addictions, and other co-occurring conditions. Our statement of beliefs guides our treatment philosophy and truly reflects how we deliver care to our clients. We Believe: 1. Chemical dependency is a treatable disease of the body, mind, and spirit. 2. Those who struggle with alcohol and drug addiction can completely recover from the obsession to use. 3. Recovery is an ongoing process and a strong foundation is built in treatment through therapy, awareness, working the Twelve Steps and other social recovery models. 4. Successful recovery for a chemically dependent client requires total abstinence from all mood/mind altering chemicals unless competently prescribed. 5. A team approach is necessary for meeting our clients’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. 6. A spiritual experience (or change is behavior)is the ultimate goal of the treatment/recovery process. 7. Engaging in a spiritual program of action while in treatment and after treatment is the best way to maintain recovery. 8. Persons who seek treatment for chemical dependency may also have emotional, cognitive, physical and behavioral struggles which we address in treatment by means of therapeutic and medical interventions. 9. Aftercare support (post discharge) is significant to the ongoing care and success of long term recovery. Quality of life and success depend on the ability and willingness for the client to engage with recommendations in their recovery program. 10. Affordability is an important consideration in care and continuing care decisions.

Terrible. Much better options out there.


Run by greedy old white men only interested in what you or your insurance will pay them.

The staff was great, but some of the other clients over stepped boundaries of personal belongings in rooms by taking my clothes out of my closet.

Areas of Focus
Client & Family Support Groups

Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Creative Arts Therapy

Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.

    Greg Young - Clinical Director

    Greg holds a M.S. degree in counseling and is a licensed marriage and family therapist. He has held several positions in the field of recovery over the last 13 years such as case manager, therapist, program director, clinical director and vice-president of clinical operations. Greg’s believes in utilizing an eclectic approach by incorporating science, spirituality, existentialism, experiential and cognitive behavioral therapy. In Greg’s own words: “Awareness is the key to change. Without it, we routinely function using our maladaptive coping strategies that have proven to be harmful to ourselves and those around us. Utilizing an awareness approach focuses on re-directing these thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that promote effective coping methods, a healthier outlook, and development of the tools necessary for long term recovery.”
