Residential Treatment

Phase 2

  • For clients who need time in a safe environment to recover
  • Reside at Mirror Lake
  • Programming may be 7 days per week

What does our residential program treat?

Mirror Lake’s residential program treats those struggling with drug addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Co-occurring mental health disorders we treat include:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Depressive Disorders

What types of therapies are included?

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.

What happens after residential treatment?

Treatment needs evolve as clients progress through our residential program. If a client is prepared to step down to a less structured schedule, they can begin our partial hospitalization program.
