At Cottonwood, we recognize that behavioral health and addiction issues are not classifications but represent an individual’s experience of pain and suffering. This recognition allows us to individualize our treatment approach so that our clients can recover in ways specific to their experience. We promote a truly caring and nurturing framework in which each person can heal.
Clients who come to Cottonwood are valued, supported, and recognized as unique persons who are capable of change. Our multidisciplinary team of licensed and highly skilled professionals includes psychiatrists, psychologists, medical providers, nurses, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, master-level therapists, substance use counselors, and specialty counselors.
Many individuals who seek treatment do so in order to address the problematic use of mood-altering chemicals. We provide a compassionate and safe approach when individuals require detoxification from a substance. Our 9-bed detoxification unit offers a medically managed approach to detox in order to reduce the distress and discomfort associated with withdrawal.
In addition to treating substance use disorders, we also provide assessment and treatment of process addictions such as video game addiction, online gaming, compulsive gambling, non-suicidal self-injury, and eating disorders. Our approach to treating co-occurring disorders allows us to help our clients recognize patterns of addiction and manage triggers more effectively in recovery. We offer addiction education, 12-step programming, and relapse plan development.
Individuals seeking treatment for primary mental health diagnoses, with or without a history of a substance use disorder, will find Cottonwood the perfect environment in which to address such challenges. At Cottonwood, we treat such diagnoses as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and complicated grief.
We find that many of those who enter treatment present with multiple diagnoses. Our compassionate team of expert professionals completes a thorough battery of assessments to fully understand an individual’s history and treatment needs. Our empirically-based assessments are reflective of our holistic approach to treatment, allowing us to consider the health and wellness of the body, the mind, and the spirit. These specialized assessment protocols allow us to provide the highest and most comprehensive level of care possible.
