Our Approach to Residential Alcohol and Drug Treatment
At Silvermist, our philosophy is that every young adult suffering with a substance use disorder is capable of revitalization, persistent change and autonomy in adulthood when given the tools and support to thrive. Through an evidence-based and holistically integrated curriculum, you will receive the necessary therapy and tools to begin your transformative journey toward recovery from addiction.
Our treatment approach focuses on understanding each client’s unique needs and providing cutting-edge drug treatment in order to enhance abilities, recognize harmful attributes and diminish addictive traits and behaviors. With 18 support staff and a 1:5 clinician-to-client ratio, we give you unparalleled individual attention through a customized treatment plan specifically tailored for you.
Addiction is so often deeply rooted in one’s early life experiences. Our trauma-focused approach to care helps to address the underlying trauma present in over two-thirds of individuals struggling with addiction, while also providing the tools you need to live a sober life as you heal.

Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders
Opioid abuse continues to rise in the young adult population, and overdose from prescription drugs, heroin and fentanyl has now become the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Our team recognizes the importance of providing the foundation for a lasting recovery, especially since the consequences of any relapse can be so severe.
Silvermist uses a combination of cognitive behavioral and skills-based therapies to help you recognize triggers and how they impact negative behaviors. Family education and engagement is stressed throughout, and medication-assisted therapy is thoughtfully integrated into treatment planning when appropriate to ensure a successful transition back to your life once you leave.
Family involvement is a vital component of long-lasting recovery. Your family members are encouraged to regularly participate in educational and counseling services at our drug rehabilitation center. Weekend schedules are geared toward family visits and include family programs for support and education. You and your family members can contact clinical staff for advice and assistance about all aspects of treatment.
Silvermist offers weekly family sessions both over the phone and in person. We also offer a monthly Family Day on the first Saturday of every month to provide education and support for family members. See the schedule below to see how we involve family in treatment.

Inpatient Drug Rehab Services
Silvermist inpatient drug rehab takes a two-phase approach to helping young adults stabilize their addictive behaviors, understand the issues at the core of the addiction and provide a clear path to lifelong recovery in adulthood.
Phase I: Evidence-Based Treatment
During Phase I, a typical day at Silvermist might include group therapy, personal time for journaling or reflection, sober living skills classes and a yoga class or other recreational activity. In addition to evidence-based addiction treatment practices and modalities, we provide complementary holistic therapies designed to help heal mind, body and soul and encourage an overall healthy lifestyle, free of the influence of drugs and alcohol. Silvermist’s executive chefs will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner in the residences’ fully-equipped kitchens and can accommodate all dietary restrictions.
Other activities might include:
- Process groups
- 12-Step study and self-reflection
- Experiential groups
- Recreation time
Phase II: Building Life Skills
As you progress through treatment and build your foundation in recovery, your individual program evolves into a more moderate level of structure with a complementary life-skills focus. Phase II allows for an opportunity to build confidence in sobriety by continuing to learn how to cope with life’s challenges free from alcohol or drug use. Some of the specific life skills we review include:
- Career counseling
- Financial counseling
- Education and support for sexual health
- Daily life skills counseling
- Motivational enhancement counseling
Clients in Phase II meet with their therapists for a minimum of two sessions per week in addition to a schedule of group psychotherapy and holistic treatment. However, there are additional freedoms not afforded to clients in Phase I, including less group time and self-directed study time. These freedoms allow clients to begin to use the sober skills they have learned in treatment as they prepare for discharge from the program and a return home.
Throughout the program, Silvermist staff focus on making sure each client is comfortable at our inpatient drug rehab. We want you to be able to find your own unique best path toward recovery with substance abuse treatment that works.
Finding your Path to Recovery
Silvermist believes in the importance of ongoing fellowship in recovery, and in turn empowers clients to make an informed choice on what specific self-help path is right for them. Residents are encouraged to attend outside meetings during their stay and have the opportunity to participate in:
- Refuge Recovery
- Celebrate or Faith Based Recovery
- SMART recovery
By encouraging participation in 12-Step and other fellowship meetings, we help you form a support network of likeminded individuals outside of the facility. Meetings can also teach coping tools and behavioral strategies necessary for our residents to successfully re-enter society while achieving their most important goal: long-term recovery.
