Our Philosophy

Empowering Recovery with a Focus on Holistic Health and Individualized Care

At Defining Wellness Centers, we approach addiction treatment and recovery as a transformative learning process. Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that recovery is not just about overcoming addiction, but about embracing a new, healthier way of life. We are committed to empowering individuals on their journey to wellness, providing them with innovative solutions and compassionate care.

Our treatment approach is centered around a full continuum of care, catering to both mental health and addiction treatment needs. We emphasize the use of proven therapeutic methods, complemented by the latest innovations in treatment techniques and technology. This blend of traditional and modern approaches ensures a comprehensive and effective treatment experience.

Understanding the Role of Trauma in Addiction

We recognize that addiction often stems from underlying trauma and challenging life experiences. Therefore, our treatment goes beyond achieving sobriety; we aim to foster overall wellness and a renewed sense of purpose in our clients. Our staff, compassionate and experienced, understand the complexities of addiction and recovery, providing a supportive and nurturing environment for healing.

Client wellness is at the forefront of our philosophy, and our care plans are tailored to be trauma-informed. We acknowledge that conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) require distinct treatment approaches alongside addiction therapy. Our focus is on addressing the deep-seated issues of trust, anger, fear, and emotional detachment that often accompany trauma.

A Dynamic Process of Change and Growth

We believe wellness is an active and ongoing process of making healthy life choices. Each client is guided through a personalized journey of change and growth. We consider not only the needs of our clients but also the needs of their loved ones, ensuring a holistic approach to recovery.

Our treatment modalities are diverse and tailored to individual preferences and needs. For some, this may involve healthy eating and exercise, while others may benefit from ongoing therapy, either one-on-one or in groups. We also offer a range of experiential treatments, such as art, music, adventure, equine therapy, meditation, and mindfulness practices. Recognizing that there is no singular path to wellness, we help our clients define and pursue their own journey to health and recovery.

A Commitment to Long-term Recovery

We believe in the potential for recovery in everyone, regardless of their circumstances. Our philosophy is to never give up on oneself or on loved ones. By assisting our clients in defining wellness for themselves, we aim to support them in achieving their long-term recovery goals, reinforcing the idea that the greatest wealth is health.
