Veteran-Focused Programming at Tranquility Woods

Interlaced with addictions, we have a trauma-informed treatment approach integrating experiential, educational, expressive, and holistic therapies.  Our residential program starts at 30 days.

We draw upon the work of nationally accredited authors like Bessel Van der Kolk, Brene Brown, and Kristen Neff, among others, in our program design and implementation. Our clients receive educational materials to build awareness and insight into trauma. We have a curated group therapy curriculum that enmeshes didactic and experiential learning. We recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma exposure on physical and mental health.

We embrace the five basic principles of trauma-informed care.

  • Safety
  • Choice
  • Collaboration
  • Trustworthiness
  • Empowerment

Our principles of trauma-informed care include the emotional and physical safety of our clients through peer support and ongoing staff support. We have a core crisis response team led by licensed clinicians for an effective and immediate response to a client’s needs. Our clinical model is based on trust between providers and clients.  We ensure collaboration with our clients by setting goals for treatment and aftercare.

Our Veteran Program

We provide client-centered and evidence-based care with licensed and trained staff. We have combat veterans on staff with a deep understanding of exposure trauma, war-related violence, and other facets of chronic and post-traumatic stress. Our clinicians have trained in evidence-based treatment for trauma like EMDR, CBT, DBT, and Brain spotting ( David Grand, 2015).

Our addiction-focused expert medical team provides alcohol and drug detoxification available on-site.  Each client is medically evaluated for an individualized detoxification protocol.  We can prescribe medications to create a comfortable and safe transition from drug and alcohol use.

Our comprehensive treatment methods cover a wide range of different physical and holistic support, including acupuncture, physical fitness, massage, yoga, mindfulness and meditation training, and much more.

Our Treatment Methods

What Is EMDR Therapy?

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy, or EMDR, is a mental health method that focuses on how our nervous system physically responds to traumatic memories.  EMDR works by retraining the neural pathways in the brain through eye-movement redirection while processing traumatic memories with a licensed clinician. 

What Is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a collection of a few core principles, including how psychological problems are based on a perceived distortion of unhealthy thinking and behaviors and that there are better ways to cope with psychological problems to live healthier, more productive lives. We use CBT training and therapy in our private counseling sessions.
