Discover What Makes Paint Desert Recovery Unique

/Substance use disorder (SUD) affects millions of women each year. According to Psychiatric Clinics of North America, “Treatment services have been developed to address not only the substance use, but also the range of other problems that often predate, co-occur with, and are caused by substance use disorders.” Painted Desert Recovery is a woman’s only treatment center in Utah offering evidence-based treatments for SUD and co-occurring mental health disorders. The programs help women recover from SUD and build the foundation for a healthier future.

What We Treat at Painted Desert Recovery

Every person has different circumstances, underlying issues, and treatment needs. Painted Desert Recovery offers personalized care to ensure the best possible outcomes for women struggling with SUD. The clinicians provide a wide range of treatment options and tailor them to the preferences and needs of each client. Painted Desert Recovery treats alcohol and drug addiction, dual diagnosis, and related trauma.

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is one of the most common forms of substance abuse. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in 2021, “28.6 million adults ages 18 and older (11.3% in this age group) had AUD.” Treatment often involves a combination of therapeutic modalities and services, including support groups and individual psychotherapy. Clients recovering from multiple forms of substance abuse often have AUD. The care team provides integrative care to ensure clients have access to the tools and resources they need to recover from the effects of alcohol abuse.

Illegal Drug and Prescription Medication Addiction

Painted Desert Recovery treats prescription and illicit substance abuse. Some of the most common substances treated at the center include:

  • Marijuana
  • Crystal meth
  • Amphetamines
  • Party drugs
  • Ketamine
  • Fentanyl and other opioids
  • Synthetic drugs
  • Stimulants
  • Benzodiazepines

The clinical team has decades of combined experience treating all forms of substance abuse.

Behavioral Addictions

Addictive behaviors commonly co-occur alongside SUD. Untreated behavioral addictions increase the risk of relapse and reduce emotional stability during early recovery.

Some of the most common behavioral addictions include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Gambling
  • Internet
  • Gaming
  • Sex
  • Food

Any activity has the potential to become a behavioral addiction. Painted Desert Recovery uses evidence-based methods to help clients identify and address behavioral addictions. Often, addictive behaviors develop as a response to trauma or chronic stress. The care team uses trauma-informed therapy and skill development to help clients heal and find healthier ways to manage their condition.

Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

Many people with SUD experience co-occurring mental health disorders. Co-occurring conditions generally require simultaneous treatment. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “The presence of two or more disorders can complicate diagnosis and treatment. Integrating both screening and treatment for mental and substance use disorders leads to a better quality of care and health outcomes for those living with co-occurring disorders by treating the whole person.” Painted Desert Recovery uses comprehensive assessments and screening tools to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment of co-occurring disorders.

A few common co-occurring mental health disorders include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The care team addresses all co-occurring conditions during treatment and aftercare planning.

Trauma and Other Underlying Factors

Mental health disorders and SUD often have multiple overlapping causes and underlying factors impacting a person’s ability to manage their condition. Untreated trauma is one of the most common issues affecting people diagnosed with SUD and dual diagnosis. According to SAMHSA, “Research has shown that traumatic experiences are associated with both behavioral health and chronic physical health conditions, especially those traumatic events that occur during childhood . . . Because these behavioral health concerns can present challenges in relationships, careers, and other aspects of life, it is important to understand the nature and impact of trauma, and to explore healing.”

Painted Desert Recovery uses trauma-informed therapy and evidence-based modalities to address the impact of trauma. Psychotherapy, skill development, and alternative holistic therapies help women identify, process, and manage underlying trauma and other mental health issues. Healing from trauma empowers women, builds confidence, and reduces stress during early recovery.

The Importance of Personalized Treatment

Personalized care allows clients to recover at their own pace while processing and appropriately addressing their condition. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), “Treatment enables people to counteract addiction’s disruptive effects on their brain and behavior and regain control of their lives.” Many addiction recovery programs claim to offer personalized treatment without ever delivering. Painted Desert Recovery genuinely prioritizes each individual and their unique needs, providing tailored support services and combining treatment modalities to create an integrative approach to care.

Individualized programs do the following:

  • Improves communication between clients and the care team
  • Reduces the risk of relapse by addressing potential issues immediately
  • Increases the effectiveness of treatment and support services

Personalized treatment involves educating clients to ensure they understand the realities of their diagnosis and what to expect from the recovery process. According to the Journal of Substance Use and Addiction Treatment, people participating in addiction recovery programs “may benefit more from them when they have meaningful opportunities to influence the decisions regarding their own healthcare.” Painted Desert Recovery provides clients and their families with the information they need to make informed decisions about their care.

People experiencing substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring mental health issues benefit from participating in rehabilitation programs.
