Withdrawal management – For clients who need support removing drugs or alcohol from their bodies before they can fully engage in therapeutic activities, we offer withdrawal management, or detoxification services, with the help of medical staff, a psychiatric provider, and a therapist. This process usually takes about 10 to 14 days depending on the nature of each client’s symptoms.

Partial hospitalization program (PHP)  We offer an intensive therapeutic experience through our PHP, with clients attending six hours of programming a day. Many of our clients remain at the PHP level for seven to 11 days, though everyone’s recovery journey is different. 

Our expert team fully personalizes the therapies and interventions included in your treatment plan to ensure that you experience the best outcome possible. Before you begin treatment for a substance use disorder at our rehabilitation center near Albuquerque, New Mexico, we will conduct a thorough psychiatric assessment of your medical history and current needs, strengths, challenges, and goals. Based on this assessment, your treatment plan might include:

We incorporate proven, evidence-based treatment modalities into the therapeutic interventions we provide.
