World-class treatments lead to better outcomes

At Enterhealth, a comprehensive treatment protocol is rooted in proven science and highly personalized based on the results of the patient’s multidimensional assessment. Treatments are designed and structured to meet you where you are and help promote short-term healing and treatment that sets the stage for long-term success.

One of the pioneers of using the National Institutes of Health’s research findings and assessment methods that classify addiction as a brain disease, our full continuum of evidence-based treatments continues to advance these standards. We continually review the latest scientific research in our field to stay on the cutting edge of treatments that will enhance healing and reverse the damage to the brain caused by addiction. In addition, our historical research and hands-on expertise in the field over the last 12 years demonstrates that longer treatment stays provide the highest chances for recovery, a critical finding which the Surgeon General’s Report substantiates.

Another crucially important (but often overlooked) factor in successful recovery is the environment in which treatment is administered. Purposely designed to advance healing, Enterhealth’s treatment facilities bring every level of detail to your care. Whether at the Enterhealth Ranch for inpatient rehab, where each patient has a private room and 24/7 access to individualized care, or at Outpatient, where the focus is on convenient but structured transitional support, and even with advanced online telehealth services, our commitment to continued care sets us apart from an otherwise disorganized and disjointed field.

Once a personalized addiction treatment plan is completed, the patient’s progress is regularly monitored – and treatment is coordinated – by our entire medical, psychological and therapeutic team. Our master level therapists provide regular feedback, including ongoing assessments of mood, level of engagement with treatment, rapport with therapists and other patients, physical health, completion of recovery assignments and response to anti-addiction medications. All information is consolidated into a personal feedback report that will inform the patient and family of recovery progress.

Substance abuse type and severity

Science has revealed to us that different substances damage different areas of the brain, and each person feels addiction’s effects differently. Our comprehensive evaluation protocols look at the type and severity of your substance issues, so we can customize treatment based on your substance choice, frequency, use duration, and any other factors associated with your drug, alcohol, psychiatric, or medical history.

  • Alcohol (beer, wine and liquor)
  • Benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, GHB and others)
  • Opioids(Heroin, OxyContin, Codeine and others)
  • Multiple Substance Combinations (e.g., alcohol and opiates or marijuana)

  • Neuro-biofeedback – A non-drug, reward-based training system for your brain that works to change its electrical activity and retrain the brain to be calm, focused and more relaxed in stressful situations.
  • Neurocognitive remediation – Therapy designed to improve neurocognitive abilities such as attention, working memory, cognitive flexibility and planning, and executive functioning, which leads to improved psychosocial functioning.
  • QEEG – A non-invasive brain scan to determine your individual brain’s natural harmonic frequency.
  • MeRT – Alcohol and drug abuse cause brain injuries that prevent our neurons from firing on all cylinders and negatively affect different areas of the brain – changing how we think, learn, feel and act – which in turn complicates the addiction recovery process. For most patients, it takes at least a year for the brain to heal and achieve optimal brain health; however, Neuromodulation can dramatically accelerate the healing process, often producing improvement in only 4 to 6 weeks.

 

Enterhealth is one of the first addiction treatment centers in the nation to effectively use Neuromodulation, a medically advanced procedure designed to treat injury or illnesses of the brain. From PTSD to ADHD, major depression, and other afflictions, this revolutionary treatment is a safe, non-invasive procedure that helps recalibrate and quickly restore the brain to its healthiest possible state.

 

Neuromodulation, also called Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy, combines personalized brain scanning (QEEG) analysis and proprietary data algorithms with a protocol of customized and concentrated magnetic pulses (TMS) to bring specific, important brain waves of the injured brain back into harmony. By doing so, it improves sleep and reduces stress/anxiety and depression, which are all critical contributors to ongoing addiction and relapse. By restoring healthy sleep patterns and improving recall and thinking abilities, it can also enhance the effects of other therapies and medications (in some cases, it can eliminate or reduce the need for medications for certain issues). At Enterhealth, we continue to stay on the cutting edge of scientific research to bring you the best addiction treatment for you or your loved ones. Typical Neuromodulation treatment is administered in 2-week intervals for up to 6 weeks. Combined with other therapies, Neuromodulation accelerates the restoration of the patient’s normal brain state, allowing the patient to feel better, enjoy a better quality of life, and reduce the likelihood of relapse.

  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) – Short-term form of psychotherapy that helps you identify self-defeating thoughts and feelings, challenge the rationality of those feelings, and replace them with healthier, more productive beliefs.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI) – Motivational interviewing is a psychotherapeutic approach that attempts to take a patient from a state of indecision or uncertainty to a point where they feel motivated to make positive decisions and accomplish established goals.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – As traumatic memories are not processed normally, EMDR therapy allows the patient to access and reprocess these events to change the way the memory affects them.
  • 12-Step Facilitation Therapy (TSF) – Linking patients with current 12-step members and helping them overcome the barriers and challenges that they face.
  • Contingency Management – Encourage positive behavior by providing incentives for abstinence, attending counseling sessions, and meeting goals.
  • Cognitive Screening (COGS) – Cognitive screening assesses your aptitude to think clearly and to determine if any mental conditions exist.  These assessments measure three common areas of cognition including: memory, executive function, and attention. This testing is imperative in assessing and diagnosing any co-occurring mental health conditions you may have to ensure we can offer an informed and personalized course of action for treatment.
