Substance Use Disorder is a pattern of harmful dependency. Excessively using alcohol, other drugs (legal or illegal), or even substances that aren’t considered drugs at all, for mood-altering purposes.

More Than One Side to the Story

Tellurian has specialized in substance use and chemical addiction treatment for more than half a century. Experience has shown us that people struggling with substance use and addiction often have an accompanying mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress. That’s why we often integrate mental health counseling and psychiatric care into substance use treatment plans. We call this approach “dual diagnosis.”

Substance use disorder is a complex condition. Since each person in treatment is unique, the same goes for their path to recovery. That said, our board-certified addiction specialists, counselors, and clinical team firmly believe that every single one of them has the ability to recover.

Our treatment plans are tailored to each individual through a range of treatment modalities, including (but not limited to):

  • Individual and Group Therapy
  • Spiritual Care Groups
  • Holistic Healing
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Stages of Change
  • Behavioral Modification
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Forgiveness Therapy 
  • Yoga
  • Exercise Therapy
  • Expressive Art
  • Lifestyle Balance
  • Pharmacological Treatment
  • Peer Support Services

Each of these has a useful place in our team’s treatment toolkit. In addition, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Smart Recovery are optional meetings available to all of our patients.
