Our Approach to Integrated Care

Our Treatment Philosophy

We are a family-focused, systemic treatment program that is committed to clinical excellence and unparalleled care. We believe that family involvement is integral and necessary for the successful recovery of our clients. A person exists within a family and should be treated within the context of the family. See how the family is involved in treatment at Sandstone Care.

Key Components of Our Approach

It is our team’s passion and dedication to the following components of our approach that creates a sense of community where clients are excited to get to participate in our program and move on to a sustainable, new way of life.

Evidence-Based Curriculum

We developed our evidence-based curriculum with the latest available research to address our clients’ deepest physical, mental, and emotional issues. It is our goal to reach the root of the substance use or addiction issue. We include the following therapies, assessments, and plans in our programs:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Somatic Symptom Assessment and Plan
  • Brain & Body Trauma Assessment and Plan
  • Weekly Organized Physical Activities
  • Nutritional Assessment and Plan

Age Appropriate Care

The needs of adolescents and young adults are unique. Their brains and bodies are still developing and their need for peer connection is at an all-time high. They are also at a stage in life where they are struggling to develop a strong, healthy self-image in the face of a rapidly changing world. 

This world is heavily influenced by social media and technology. So, we assess where our clients are from a developmental standpoint and create a treatment program based on their developmental stage needs. We provide care specific to those unique needs for every client.

Academic & Vocational Support

Teens and young adults face the pressures of school or entering the job market for the first time. Substance use adds to it by negatively impacting grades and job performance. We include academic and vocational support in our programs to help teens and young adults get back on track.

Individualized Treatment

After our comprehensive assessment, we develop an individualized treatment plan to meet each client’s needs. Rather than emphasize why an individual comes to Sandstone Care, we focus on the path forward. We rely on our clinical framework to help each client discover their own values and beliefs, strengths, and passions.

Family Treatment

To improve the quality of life as a family, it’s essential to involve the entire family in treatment. We have individual family therapy, multi-family groups, and parent support groups. Here, families will find a space where they have permission to be open and honest about the challenges they are facing. They can also find answers about mental health and what treatment looks like at Sandstone Care.

Our Unique Clinical Framework

Our unique CLICC Framework establishes five pillars of success for our clients. These five pillars allow our therapists to hone in on a client’s strengths and identify any areas in a client’s recovery process that are lacking. This individualized program methodology helps our clients reach that critical breakthrough moment that is necessary in order to achieve a sustainable recovery.

Commitment to Sustainable Change

To achieve a new sustainable lifestyle, individuals and families must accept that meaningful change is vital to recovery. We believe the development of values and beliefs is the first step in providing the foundation for this change. To find a sustainable change, the individual must work with their family members and our clinical team to develop this set of values.

Life Skills Development

Our teens and twenties are years filled with opportunities to develop, but they are also a time filled with confusion and new challenges. Unfortunately, many people turn to substance use to cope with these new challenges and everyday stress. At Sandstone Care, individuals will learn coping skills and they’ll continue the process of defining who they are so they can tackle life’s challenges with confidence. 

Clinicians call this experience identity formation. In academia, this process is called choosing your major. We recognize that when clients see their schoolwork and career choices as expressions of who they are, they flourish. Our goal is to help you flourish.

Integrity to Values

Individuals can discover and restore the values that their families hold dear while growing a sense of personal responsibility. With a stronger sense of integrity, clients can cultivate their own values, beliefs, and passions that will continue to keep them strong in the face of temptation.

Connection to Others

Through group therapy, clients can develop healthy and authentic relationships that aren’t based on a desire for substance use. Group therapy is also an opportunity to re-establish relationships with family members and other loved ones. Establishing stable relationships in a safe community can positively reinforce the individual’s commitment to change.

Community Support System

The ultimate goal of the program is to create a new, sustainable, joyful and meaningful way of life. Sandstone Care has dedicated resources and clinical staff to help our clients identify classes, jobs, sports, and other activities that help individuals connect to vibrant and inspiring communities. These new communities are often the key to a new, healthy lifestyle that supports long-term recovery.
