Healing for the Whole Self

At Clarity Way dual diagnosis and addiction rehab, we apply the best in traditional and alternative therapies coupled with a full assortment of recovery-enhancing activities that treat the whole person. We respect each client’s unique interests and beliefs and the pace at which they move along their recovery path.

We believe that the more invested a client is in their treatment, the better the outcome. This is why our program is designed to allow clients to customize their own treatment program. In addition to the core therapies included in our program, each client has the opportunity to request extra clinical and holistic services for an additional fee.

Available therapies are based on clinical need and length of stay. Some therapies may incur an additional fee.

Some of our therapies include:

Individual Therapy

Frequent, intensive one-on-one therapy sessions are an important part of the treatment process and our personalized approach. Clients participate in at least two individual sessions per treatment week. Individual sessions provide clients the opportunity to work more intensely on their specific issues, develop trusting therapeutic relationships to explore interpersonal challenges, and practice recovery skills they can apply in their group work. Additional individual therapy is available at an additional cost as schedules permit.

Family Involvement

Addiction is a family disease and loved ones are an important part of the treatment and recovery process. Family members are invited to participate in our Family Day once a month to learn about the disease of addiction, family roles and relapse prevention. As clinically appropriate and by request, we offer family therapy onsite or via teleconference. Our goal is to help loved ones understand the underlying issues of addiction and learn how to support one another through the treatment and recovery process. Learn more.


Psychodrama is an experiential therapy that can be used with individuals, families, couples and groups of all ages with all types of challenges. Within a safe, therapeutic space, we introduce techniques such as role playing, mirroring, future projections and doubling. These processes help clients give voice to aspects of themselves or their lives that they may have trouble expressing or verbalizing otherwise. Issues addressed in psychodrama might include anger, resilience, forgiveness, triggers, family issues, grief, attachment, addiction and trauma. Learn more.

12 Steps and 12-Step Alternatives

We know not everyone relates to the 12 Steps. That’s why we offer both 12-step groups as well as alternatives to the 12 Steps such as Refuge Recovery and SMART Recovery® groups. SMART Recovery is a scientific-based, self-empowering alternative to the 12 Steps. Refuge Recovery is based on Buddhist philosophy and includes mindfulness practices.


Biofeedback is a quick-acting, drug-free approach to reducing stress, stabilizing emotions and improving concentration. It’s often used during or after detox to ease withdrawal symptoms like insomnia, and can help with a wide range of mental health issues including addiction, anxiety, depression and trauma/PTSD. The technique not only helps with bothersome symptoms, but can make psychotherapy more efficient and help clients achieve their peak personal performance.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that is effective in treating substance abuse, depression, trauma and other mental health issues. DBT focuses on helping people develop four skill sets to solve problems, improve relationships, and cope with difficult feelings and situations without turning to drugs or destructive behaviors. These skills include: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. The goal is for clients to learn how to balance efforts to change with acceptance so they can achieve their goals.

Medical Care

We offer expert medical care from a team of physicians and nurses to help clients heal the physical deficiencies caused by addiction. Clients who require medical detox benefit from 24/7 care from our medical team to ensure a safe, comfortable  experience.  We provide medically assisted therapy with VIVITROL®, Buprenorphine and other research-backed medications as clinically appropriate to ease withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Addiction Education

Addiction counselors educate clients on substance abuse and chemical dependency so they understand both the underlying issues of addictive behaviors, and the biological, genetic, interpersonal and social contributors to the disease.

Pain Management Services*

Offsite chiropractic services, occupational therapy and physical therapy are available for individuals who require these services for an additional fee.


We offer trauma-focused therapies such as EMDR that help clients address deeply rooted issues surrounding trauma and past difficulties. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, uses a stimuli such as light to act on bilateral stimulation of the eye while the client recalls and ultimately reprocesses traumatic events or emotional blocks.

HEART Therapy Group

Our HEART group therapy curriculum was developed by one of our lead therapists who is a certified clinical trauma professional. HEART (Hope, Empathy, Authenticity, Resilience and Trust) is based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown (researcher, author and creator of a shame-resilience curriculum), Dr. Cathy Moonshine (“Accepting Competency and Achieving Proficiency With Dialectical Behavioral Therapy”) and Don Miguel Ruiz (“The Four Agreements”). Sessions focus on living a whole-hearted, authentic life, working with shame and vulnerability, and using mindfulness practices. Group leaders use a combination of videos, written activities, psychodrama, art and readings and often bring in expert speakers. Learn more about The HEART Group.

Spiritual Exploration

We help clients address the range of spiritual issues and questions that often arise in addiction and recovery. Our program encourages spiritual connection, without promoting a specific spiritual avenue or faith. Clients incorporate spirituality in whatever way resonates most with them. This may involve mindfulness, nature, faith-based practices, creativity or other venues that inspire a connection to something greater than oneself.

Transitional Coaching

Clients work with their primary therapist throughout treatment to prepare for a smooth transition back home. They learn to recognize potential triggers and stressful situations that might occur in their day-to-day life and create a plan to deal with these effectively. Clients are encouraged to practice recovery skills such as healthier thinking patterns and coping mechanisms. We also provide clients with resources for support after inpatient addiction treatment.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing meets clients where they are in the recovery process. This approach acknowledges that clients who need to make changes in their lives come into treatment at various levels of readiness to change their behavior. Some may have considered the need for change, but have not taken steps to alter behaviors that led to problems or have not yet found resolution. Components of motivational interviewing include: open-ended questions, an affirming attitude, reflective/active listening, and summarizing and reflecting back to the client what they’ve said. Therapists help clients view their life circumstances through healthier lenses and gain motivation to take the necessary steps for change. This approach is cooperative and reinforces the partnership between therapist and client.

Couples Therapy

Addiction is a disease that profoundly affects both clients and their loved ones. As part of our customized approach to treatment, couples therapy is integrated into our drug and alcohol rehab program by request of the client and as clinically appropriate. Partners learn to engage in open and honest communication, address potential relapse triggers, navigate relationship issues and support each other as they recover together. Learn more.
*Clients have the option to purchase additional sessions for an added fee.


Pilates involves controlled movements that build strength and balance. Key Pilates concepts include centering, concentration, control, precision, breath and flow. Clients can improve circulation and range of motion through this practice. They may also enhance concentration, strength and agility, and decrease stress, anxiety and tension.


Practicing yoga can help quiet the mind and improve strength, agility, balance and concentration. It involves physical postures or “asanas” as well as breathing and stillness. Yoga is tailored to the abilities of the client and can be an effective component of mind-body healing. Clients often incorporate yoga into their lives after treatment as a recovery skill and part of a healthy lifestyle. Learn more.


Meditation and mindfulness can ease anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Meditation involves conscious awareness of breathing, calming the mind and engaging the senses. By becoming aware of the body and breath, thoughts are gently acknowledged as “just thoughts” and released. This encourages clients to stay in the present moment. We offer optional meditation groups five days a week that include guided meditation. Upon request, clients are provided complimentary guided meditation recordings created by our holistic director when they leave drug rehab treatment.


We believe physical and emotional healing are very much connected. Massage therapy can be a valuable component of addiction recovery. At Clarity Way treatment center, we work with several massage therapists who are specially trained and certified in a variety of different massage therapy techniques including Reiki, reflexology, raindrop therapy and deep tissue massages. These approaches help clients relieve tension and address emotional blocks. One massage is included for clients who stay with us 14 days or more and additional massages are available for an added fee. Learn more.


Hypnosis is the process of helping a person access their powerful subconscious mind through concentrated focus and deep relaxation. Hypnotherapy  uses hypnosis as a technique to help clients make therapeutic gains in treatment. Hypnotherapy has many diverse applications including assisting with the treatment of such issues as addiction, pain management, stress, sleep problems, anxiety, depression. It also encourages  positive behavior change. As clinically appropriate, clients receive hypnotherapy from a hypnotherapist certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists.

Fitness Classes

Physical activity is an important component of addiction recovery. We offer a wide selection of fitness classes, tailored to all different levels and abilities. Clients may participate in stretching and strengthening, yoga, Pilates and water aerobics. Learn more.

Music and Art Activities

We have a fully stocked art studio and a music studio that clients may use in their free time. Art and music activities can help clients process emotions that are not easily verbalized. They can also serve as healthy coping skills for people in recovery. In our art studio, clients may use clay, paint, mandalas, colored pencils, canvases and other materials to create pieces that give voice to emotions, situations or issues. Our music studio gives clients the opportunity to create or listen to music alone or with other clients. The music studio includes instruments like guitars, drums, an electric piano, and maracas, as well as special software and equipment for recording music. Some of our therapists incorporate art and music projects into individual and group therapy activities.
*Clients have the option to purchase additional sessions for an added fee.


Clients can tap into their body’s natural self-healing ability and find physical balance to support recovery through acupuncture. Acupuncture can help alleviate depression, anxiety and substance abuse symptoms while strengthening immunity and lowering blood pressure. Learn more.


Reiki is a “spiritually guided life force energy,” or “universal life force energy.” Reiki is offered either by laying the hands on the body or hovering one’s hands above the body. This type of energy work reduces stress and promotes deep relaxation by helping to balance the seven major energy centers (chakras) of the body.


A way to relax and alleviate stress, reflexologists apply pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to organs and other components of the body and use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas.

Raindrop Therapy*

This non-invasive tool helps correct defects in the curvature of the spine. It involves the use of essential oils strategically placed on the back.
