Addiction & Mental Health Treatment Center
What We Treat
At Corner Canyon Recovery, our treatment team employs highly skilled clinicians who understand and utilize empirically researched treatment methods. These methods have been validated to show cause and effect of treatment outcomes, whether they be substance or behavioral in nature. We use a holistic framework when treating clients by teaching them the value of self-worth, self-esteem, and how to create a meaningful and purposeful life. Upon admission to our addiction and mental health treatment center, a client will undergo an addiction assessment. They will then follow our 12 step, refuge, or smart recovery program.
Some medical modalities that may be considered as clients prepare to transition away from residential care may be the use of oral medications. A few popular medications include Antabuse (produces a physical reaction to alcohol that may include flushing, nausea, vomiting, and headaches), Naltrexone (blocks the good feelings alcohol causes and may reduce the urge to drink), Acamprosate (helps combat alcohol cravings), Vivitrol (which is injectable, though similar medication can be taken in pill form, the injectable version of the drug may be easier for clients to use consistently).
Trauma and PTSD may arise after a severely distressing life event. There are different levels of trauma and each case must be assessed individually. Our inpatient trauma treatment center was designed to create a comfortable and safe environment for our clients. Our facility is trauma-informed and non-punitive. PTSD may be treated within 8-14 sessions at Corner Canyon Recovery.
Depression and anxiety are commonly paired with addiction because of the effect that drugs or alcohol have on the brain. In some cases, depression and anxiety remit during treatment because the brain begins to clear out the chemicals interfering with healthy, normal brain activity. Corner Canyon’s mental health treatment center focuses on healthy foods and recreational activities as additional measures to curing these mental disorders. If depression and anxiety do not respond, clients may be evaluated by our treatment staff to see if medications might be helpful.
The majority of people with substance abuse also suffer from co-occurring disorders or behavioral issues. For our mental health treatment center to be effective, co-occurring diagnoses must be treated alongside the primary addiction. Mental illness can lead to relapse or new addictions as clients begin to self-medicate to attempt to treat the mental illness. Co-occurring diagnoses in clients who abuse substances include depression, anxiety, bi-polar, OCD, ODD, eating disorders, and ADHD.
Drug and alcohol addictions may encompass many different substances. Some of the most common addictions include alcohol, painkillers, opiates, amphetamines, and hallucinogens. Our addiction specialists know that no two addictions are exactly alike, so each treatment plan is uniquely tailored to the client. Our inpatient addiction treatment center offers drug and alcohol treatment services including addiction therapy, recreational activities, family and group therapy, and more.
Corner Canyon Recovery’s benzodiazepine treatment includes treatment for prescription drug abuse. The treatment process involves integrated therapeutic modalities and cycle work, which helps the user understand their cycle of use and how to break it. This will help the client explore their drug abuse and dependence, patterns of use, reasons for use, triggers, addiction consequences, and what thoughts and activities can replace their unhealthy behaviors.
Use of prescription painkillers may sometimes grow into an opioid addiction. The most common opioid addictions are morphine, codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and heroin. Withdrawal symptoms are often severe because of the brain’s physical and psychological dependence on the drug. A medical detox will be administered, followed by therapy and medications to decrease cravings and relapse.
Corner Canyon Recovery offers a safe mental health recovery center for all members of the LGBTQI community. All of our specialists are highly trained in sensitivity and awareness towards gender and sexuality. Sadly, a large number of people who identify as LGBTQ+ develop addictions throughout their lifetime and may face rejection from family, friends, and peers. However, Corner Canyon is dedicated to creating a positive and caring environment for all of our clients to aid in the healing process.
