Located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, just an hour north of Albuquerque, our adult residential program offers quality care and diverse programming options in a peaceful mountain setting. We provide excellent residential treatment services for a range of concerns, including mood disorders, substance use disorders, and other mental health concerns. 

Mental health concerns we treat in our adult residential program include: 

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety disorders 
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Adjustment disorders 
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma 
  • Borderline personality disorder 

At our residential mood disorder and mental health treatment center, we help adults heal from the challenges they have faced and rediscover hope for the future. Our residential treatment program is based on three pillars of change: reimagining your life, rediscovering your purpose, and rewriting your story. When you choose residential treatment at Life Healing Center, our team will work closely with you to provide the most effective care possible so that you can experience personal growth and improved well-being.  

Adults in our residential program live in rustic-style cabins on our beautiful campus in Santa Fe. Each day, they can immerse themselves in the healing energy that is present on our grounds and benefit from the support of our caring staff and daily intensive programming. 

The typical stay in our residential program is 30 days, but each person has an individualized experience that’s unique to their needs. When you take part in our adult residential program, you will follow a personalized care plan and participate in about eight hours of therapy each day. Our programming includes conventional medicine, traditional therapies, and dynamic approaches to healing that can help you embrace your strengths and find the wellness you deserve. 

Empowering Adults through Supportive Residential Treatment

In our residential mental health and mood disorder program, we want to help each client achieve their therapeutic goals and experience the benefits of emotion regulation. We believe that each person has the capacity to live a full and satisfying life, so we focus on helping people increase their overall wellness, rather than simply treating the symptoms they’re experiencing. 

For people who are taking medication as part of their care plan, we offer medication management services, which are delivered by our qualified psychiatric providers. When you begin residential treatment for a mood disorder, an addiction, or another mental health concern, you will typically meet with one of our psychiatrists for a full evaluation. Following this, you’ll be able to continue meeting with a psychiatric provider when needed throughout your residential program experience.  

Our qualified team of registered nurses will also be available to assist you during your time with us. Our nursing team will be available to support you during intake and assist you with taking medication throughout your stay if that’s part of your care plan. In our premier residential program, we’re pleased to provide round-the-clock nursing support for clients.  

In our adult residential program, we provide individual therapy with a licensed therapist about twice a week. These one-on-one sessions with a qualified professional can allow you to open up about your struggles, receive guidance, and find solutions and strategies that may help you move forward in your healing journey. We also offer family therapy in our residential program. This modality can help clients and their families increase understanding, reduce conflict, and promote healing. 

If you receive care at our residential treatment center, you may work with various mental health professionals. These individuals may include licensed master social workers (LMSWs), licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), and licensed mental health counselors (LMHCs). Our staff also includes art therapists, including those who have licensed professional art therapist (LPAT) and board-certified art therapist (ATR-BC) credentials.  

What Makes Residential Treatment a Preferred Option?

Residential treatment is an intensive form of behavioral health support. In a residential program, clients live together in a supportive setting and benefit from 24/7 care from qualified staff members. Residential treatment generally lasts longer than acute inpatient care, allowing clients the time to focus on achieving lasting growth and sustained well-being. Group therapy is often a focus of residential programs, which provides clients with the chance to connect with peers and learn from their experiences. 

Another benefit of residential treatment is the chance to receive highly personalized care. When you participate in residential treatment, you’ll work with professionals over an extended period to address your needs and achieve your unique goals. During this process, you can acquire skills and strategies that may help you navigate future challenges on the road to better health.  

Our residential program for mood disorders and other mental health concerns offers many benefits, including: 

  • A premier program setting in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains 
  • A comfortable environment with gender-specific cabins, walking trails, and excellent care amenities 
  • The opportunity to participate in a wide array of traditional and nontraditional therapies 

When you choose our adult residential program in New Mexico, you can become part of a transformative healing community. Whether you’re working toward healing from trauma, substance abuse, or a mood disorder or other mental health concern, you can count on the team at Life Healing Center to provide the highest levels of care and support.
