Men and women who have been struggling with chemical dependency and certain co-occurring mental health disorders have turned to Mirror Lake Recovery Center for life-changing residential treatment. On our serene 75-acre campus in Burns, Tennessee, we are proud to have established a comprehensive treatment program where science-based, research-supported techniques are delivered in a compassionate manner in order to best meet the unique needs of each person who chooses to heal with us.
At Mirror Lake, residential treatment is Phase II of a three-phase treatment experience that begins with medically monitored detox and ends with partial hospitalization programming (PHP). Treatment in Phase II incorporates a variety of treatment modalities, including the following:
- 12-step addiction recovery model
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Motivational interviewing
- Stages of Change treatment model
Depending upon a client’s specific needs and treatment goals, the care that he or she receives during Phase II treatment at our center may include the following elements:
Medication management: Clients with co-occurring mental health disorders may have medication included in their personalized treatment plans. These clients will meet with a psychiatrist on a weekly basis, with additional sessions available as needed. Medication management services are also provided on a daily basis by nurses and nurse practitioners.
Individual therapy: During Phase II, or residential treatment, clients participate in individual therapy on a weekly basis. These one-on-one sessions are designed to help clients to achieve a specific short-term goal, such as resolving a problem, making a decision, alleviating the impact of certain symptoms, or similar objectives.
Group therapy: All clients will participate in multiple group therapy sessions on a daily basis throughout their Phase II treatment experience. These focused sessions commonly address behavioral and/or emotional issues that are related to the recovery process. The specific content of any one group will be determined by the contributions of both the professional who is leading the group and the clients who are participating in the session. Common group therapy topics include recovery principles, living in balance, and relapse prevention.
Family support: Family support at Mirror Lake Recovery Center is provided in two ways, our Family Program and family therapy. Every Sunday, Phase II clients and their family members are invited to attend the Family Program, which is focused employing 12-step principles in the effort to change and improve the family system. The Family Program is based on the concept that a family is a complex and intricate system that determines the health, self-worth, and role of each individual family member. Phase II clients and family members may also participate in weekly family therapy sessions with one of our counselors.
Experiential therapy: Yoga, recreational, and art therapy provide clients with the opportunity to engage in expressive arts, learn relaxation techniques, improve healthy communication skills, work as a team, and approach issues that they may be struggling with from a new perspective. Experiential therapy sessions are conducted several times per week.
Faith-based treatment track: Clients who desire to have Christian principles incorporated into their treatment may choose to participate in the ReNew Christian Program, our voluntary faith-based treatment track. Activities within the ReNew Christian Program include daily journaling, daily worship, Celebrate Recovery meetings, bible study, meditation, prayer, and 12-step meetings.
