Treatment Insights

Mt. Sinai Wellness utilizes evidence based psychotherapeutic interventions along with medication assisted treatment in an integrated fashion to address the psychological and biological etiologies for addictive disorders. Our holistic model incorporates alternative methodologies including Yoga, Tai Chi, equine assisted therapy, nutrition classes and exercise programs to transform the unhealthy lifestyle associated with addiction into active healthy habits. We offer alumni aftercare groups along with onsite AA/smart recover/refuge recovery meetings to assist in the transition of our clients back to their communities. We encourage family involvement in treatment and assist and support them as they handle the care of their loved ones.

Areas of Focus
Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

Animal Therapy

Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
