What We Treat
The Clearing is a 12-steps alternative program that treats those recovering from alcoholism, drug and substance abuse, and other disorders. We teach Spiritual Psychology counseling strategies which support Participants in healing core issues that underlie challenging behaviors.
Drug and Substance Abuse
Substance abuse, also known as drug abuse, is a patterned use of a controlled substance in which the user consumes the drug in amounts or with methods neither approved nor advised by medical professionals. Detox is first and may or may not be a step you need to take. This depends on your personal level of dependency and a medical assessment is usually required. Under the supervision of a medical professional, you’ll spend approximately two weeks tapering off the underlying substance to a point where you are physically substance-free. We don’t do detox at The Clearing but we’ll help you make arrangements for this step with a local provider in your area. Once detox is complete, now you have a clear head and it’s time to address the underlying issues that caused this problem in the first place. This is where The Clearing comes in.
Over 28 days we’ll facilitate your deep exploration and healing of the patterns that cause you to use. This isn’t willpower, this isn’t coping skills. This is discovering the core issue underlying your desire to numb your world and healing it at its source.
Alcohol addiction can be overwhelming. Even after you or someone you love identifies a possible problem, it can be difficult to surrender or reach out for help. With that being said, an intervention could be a step in the right direction. Once loved ones can see their addiction for what it really is, they can take the next step. This is not the time to mince words or be overly cautious: calling an addiction an addiction is key. The Clearing can help set up an effective, therapist-led intervention to guide individuals in the right direction. There are a number of health risks that can develop if patients don't receive help during recovery. During withdrawal, in particular, severe issues can crop up rapidly. The only way to stay safe is to be in a medically-supervised environment throughout the process. The Clearing offers an intensive program to help individuals effectively combat alcohol abuse and addiction. Rather than settling for a part-time outpatient program, seek out programs where patients can have 24/7 access to accommodation, support, and therapy.
Trauma and Traumatic Events
Traumatic events arrive under many filters in our lives. Our personal experience of the effects of trauma can simply defy categorization. The Clearing’s unique residential holistic treatment center effectively addresses the treatment of traumas such as:
- Loss of a loved one
- Loss of job, career, prestige, and/or status
- Cancer or serious Illness
- Physical, mental, emotional, and/or sexual abuse
- Other life-changing situations
We will show you how to do this work and then support you in a very safe, loving, healing, and respectful environment as you do the work for yourself.
Depression is debilitating. At The Clearing, we’ll facilitate you as you delve into these unsupportive and negative thought patterns, looking for the core, or root of the misinterpretation of reality that is pulling your focus off track.
Do you experience the paralyzing effects of unrestrained anxiety? During your recovery with us, we gently facilitate you in bringing your consciousness back into the here and now, accurately and realistically assessing your situation and moving forward from there.
Have you ever been on a rollercoaster and experienced the intensity of the ups and downs? But what happens when the ride never stops? This is all too familiar for people who suffer from bipolar disorder.
