Nestled in the majestic Sangre de Cristo foothills overlooking beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico, Life Healing Center is a place of respite, renewal, and personal transformation for adults aged 18 and above who are struggling with trauma, chemical dependency, intimacy disorders (including sex, love, and relationship addictions), and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
Since the day we opened our doors in 1993, Life Healing Center has been dedicated to offering world-class care in an atmosphere of dignity, discretion, and respect. With 39 beds and a low therapist-to-patient ratio, we place a premium on providing a comprehensive treatment experience that is personalized to meet the unique individual needs of each person who chooses to heal with us.
Our holistic care model combines time-tested techniques with emerging therapeutic methodologies to create a clinically sophisticated approach that addresses each patient on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Treatment options at Life Healing Center include medically supervised detox services for individuals who need professional assistance to rid their bodies of alcohol or other substances of abuse, followed by primary treatment in one of the following three residential programs:
Men’s Sexual Integrity Program: Men who are struggling with sex, love, and/or relationship addictions use a task-centered approach to address their intimacy disorder issues within this innovative program. Core programming for intimacy disorders includes verbal and experiential therapies designed to facilitate intervention on dysfunctional coping strategies.
Empowerment Program: Men and women who are dealing with issues related to unresolved trauma are supported in the Empowerment program as they create a foundation of recovery through resolving their traumas and shifting from a paradigm of helplessness, hopelessness, and victim identification, to embodying their authentic selves.
Hope Program: Men and women who have had problems related to substance abuse engage in the Hope program and progress through a course of appropriate verbal and experiential therapies that are designed to facilitate intervention on dysfunctional coping strategies.
Within the general framework of each of these programs, patients participate in broad spectrum of therapeutic activities. These activities include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, psycho-pharmacology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), experiential therapies (including art therapy, equine therapy, and psychodrama), and ancillary therapies (such as massage, acupuncture, EMDR, and somatic experiencing).
Treatment at Life Healing Center is provided by a board-certified adult psychiatrist, Masters level therapists, licensed drug and alcohol counselors, certified sex addiction therapists, nurses, clinical technicians, and contracted ancillary service providers.
With the understanding that residential treatment is just the first step on the path to long-term recovery, Life Healing Center ensures that each patient who completes treatment returns home with a comprehensive continuing care plan that includes specific information related to the type, level, and sources of support that is needed to prevent a recurrence of symptoms or reduction in functioning.
