“At Shadow Mountain Recovery, young adults are given the opportunity to foster meaningful therapeutic relationships that provide compassion and support, without judgment. These relationships allow clients to reconnect with the world, rather than remaining in a self-destructive relationship with a substance. As the young adult moves forward into increasing independence and autonomy, families regain balance as well and new relational bonds are formed.” Tommy Glanton, LMSW, Clinical Director
Shadow Mountain Recovery was established in 2007, with our first residential treatment facility in Taos, New Mexico. We offer affordable treatment in a structured setting, utilizing traditional and evidence-based therapies. We are happy to offer an all male program in Taos, designed specifically to address the issues that disproportionally affect men in early recovery.
Our campus is unique in that it is located on 38 acres in the Sangre de Christo Mountains of New Mexico. Many experiential therapeutic activities made possible by our location are incorporated into daily schedule. Having fun in recovery is another important component of our program, which includes a gym on property with strength training and cardio equipment, weekly winter and summer sports activities, and a music studio and woodshop for artistic expression.
Shadow Mountain Recovery in Taos provides extended residential treatment for 90 days. The goal is to provide a protective environment which includes medical stabilization, support, treatment for addictive disorders and co-occurring conditions, with supervision 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
As trauma often has a widespread impact on those struggling with addiction, we utilize a trauma informed approach by recognizing the signs and symptoms in clients and families. When symptoms are identified, we often include both EMDR and neurofeedback, evidenced based treatment modalities. This approach is particularly effective for clients who have had multiple failed treatment attempts, which is often indicative of the severe psychological trauma not previously addressed. We utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities to meet the needs of our clients within their treatment experience. Modalities to compliment our core treatment philosophy include; Attachment focused therapy, Shame reduction and Shame resilience, Relapse management and Recovery Maintenance, Art Therapy, Music therapy, and Psychosocial driven, life-skill centered motivational change.
As a part of the program, family services are provided in a supportive and interactive manner, directed toward maintaining or restoring positive family relationships. The services are time limited and are initially intensive, based on the needs of the family. The services demonstrate a multi-systemic approach to treatment with the goal of keeping families together. The services include at a minimum bi-monthly family counseling calls to provide psycho-education on addiction and other co-occurring disorders. These services also include an intensive single-family workshop provided at approximately 80 days into treatment, which addresses dysfunctional family dynamics and helps families to begin to build healthy relationships.
