Treatment Highlights

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment gives clients distance from the stressors of daily life so they can focus on getting better. Our individualized treatment plans and traditional and alternative therapies provide clients with a relevant, engaging treatment experience.

Why It’s Effective

Inpatient treatment offers clients space and attention to work on the skills they need to manage their addictions and co-occurring disorders when they return to everyday life.

Outpatient Program

Outpatient Program

We offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for clients transitioning out of inpatient treatment or who do not require a higher level of care. Our IOP and PHP help clients build confidence in recovery with gradual, increasing independence and support navigating everyday triggers.

Why It’s Effective

With the help of addiction professionals and peers in recovery, clients practice relapse-prevention skills as they work, volunteer, or attend school.

  • h

Detox Program

Detox Program

Clients in our medical detox program eliminate substances from their bodies safely and as comfortably as possible with research-backed medications and round-the-clock monitoring by our highly trained detox specialists.

Why It’s Effective

The discomfort of withdrawal can lead some people back to drug or alcohol use. A comfortable and safe detox experience helps clients stay focused on the work of recovery.

  • h

Adventure Therapy

Adventure Therapy

We offer adventure therapies like ropes course and therapeutic archery. These experiential approaches help clients gain new insights and build trust and confidence.

Why It’s Effective

Adventure therapies encourage creative problem-solving, patience, effective communication, and interpersonal skills — all key elements of long-term recovery.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis

Our psychiatrist has over 25 years of experience treating mental health disorders that can fuel addictions. Clients are prescribed non-addictive medications as clinically appropriate and learn to manage their mental health conditions through behavioral therapy.

Why It’s Effective

When underlying mental health issues are attended to, clients may feel less propelled to cope with their symptoms by using drugs or alcohol.

  • h

Trauma-Informed

Trauma-Informed Treatment

Through trauma-focused therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, clients explore past trauma and how it’s connected to their substance abuse. Within a safe space they begin to heal deep-rooted emotional pain and develop healthier coping skills.

Why It’s Effective

Unresolved trauma can drive destructive behaviors, including addiction. Addressing and treating trauma can free clients from the urge to numb emotional pain with substances.

  • h

Holistic Treatment

Holistic Treatment

Drug and alcohol abuse can cause long-lasting physical, spiritual, and emotional wounds. We offer holistic approaches like meditation, medicine wheel, and fitness to help our clients begin healing all the areas impacted by addiction.

Why It’s Effective

Holistic therapies help our clients begin reconnecting their physical, spiritual, and emotional selves, allowing them to feel whole again.

  • h

12-Step Alternatives

12-Step Alternatives

We understand that there are many paths to recovery. That’s why we offer 12-step involvement as well as alternatives to 12-step approaches like Refuge Recovery, a nontheistic, Buddhist approach to sobriety.

Why It’s Effective

When clients participate in recovery groups that align with their beliefs, they’re more likely to stay engaged and continue attending these support groups after treatment.

Staff Q&A

  • What was your favorite part about treatment at Brightwater Landing?

    Previous Question

    The best part was being able to live in and participate in such an amazing community. From the clinical team and residential aides to the men and women clients, I have never experienced such a tight-knit community at any other treatment facility. Over the course of my stay here, I honestly felt like I was living in a family environment due to all the care and concern I experienced between everyone.

    The therapy groups I found to be beneficial, the psycho-education classes were informative, and the off-site meetings/activities were both fun and relaxing. I can only continue to commend the staff for their professional, respectful, and caring attitudes.

    I feel that my experience here has changed my life for the better. I have been able to gain some clarity about several issues in my life and also feel that I will be able to stay sober if I follow my after care treatment plan. The staff was very supportive, the group and individual therapies were extremely helpful and the other activities, especially meditation, hypnosis and archery, are things I plan to use in my recovery process.

    I feel that they were met to every expectation and much more. I experienced quite a few tough times during my time here and the support was absolutely overwhelming. The caring and willingness of the staff was outstanding, and much much better than expected! I could not have been in a safer place to experience all the emotions I dealt with here. The support and mutual trust between myself and the other clients and staff was by far the most amazing thing I have ever experienced.

    I truly feel that I have undergone a dramatic, life-affirming change here at BWL, and have nothing but the highest regard for how this facility is operated. There is a strong sense of community here that I imagine is unique to here, which is bolstered by a caring staff. There is no sense of superiority here: the RA's are adept at maintaining respect without a sense of superiority, and the therapists are truly caring/insightful/relatable. I credit the entire staff with aiding me in what I consider to be the most dramatic improvement in my life I have ever experienced.

    The staff here did an unbelievable job catering to not just mine but everyone's needs. They listen and give you an honest feedback of there opinion. Nothing was ever forced upon you, also when asking questions they didn't just give you an answer they would allow you to answer it for yourself. I feel confident leaving here knowing that I received the tools I need to continue my sobriety.

    The therapy I received here far surpassed the treatment I've received over the past several years. I desperately needed a supportive community as well as a safe, nurturing environment to heal---BL more than provided me with both.
