Trauma | Substance Abuse | Mental Health

Roots offers a variety of programming options for individuals based on their need for treatment. We can accommodate most people whether they are working during the day, looking for a job, or they just need more support. If Roots cannot meet your needs, for whatever reason, we have a variety of resources that we can refer you to so you don’t feel alone in the process.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment

Roots Through Recovery’s daytime and evening Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) supports individuals coping with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues, as well as primary mental health issues, guiding you in recovery and wellness as you continue to function in everyday life. We offer treatment options that focus on the clinical needs of each person, and incorporate holistic methods including mindfulness, meditation, yoga, music and art therapy. We believe there are many paths to recovery…

Day Treatment

Roots Through Recovery offers a day treatment program (referred to as PHP, or Partial Hospitalization) to individuals with a level of care similar to that found at inpatient or residential treatment, but with the convenience and independence of living at home or in a sober living program.

Our day treatment program provides individuals with an engaging, full day of treatment, at six hours per day, five days a week. A typical day in treatment includes…

Outpatient Treatment

Roots Through Recovery’s outpatient program, or “OP”, provides a personalized combination of both one-on-one and group counseling for up to three hours a week to meet each individual’s needs.  With our outpatient program, individuals who have successfully completed an inpatient or IOP/PHP program for substance abuse and mental health issues, or whose level of need can be met with limited engagement can continue to receive support as they carry out their personal and professional lives in recovery.

Specialized Populations

We provide care that is specific to your needs with individualized groups and counseling, and research-backed interventions for specialized populations including:

  • Co-Occurring Disorders (Dual Diagnosis)
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Persistent Pain
  • Medication Assisted Therapy (tapering or maintenance)…


The Roots approach embraces compassionate care, utilizing evidence-based treatments and holistic approaches that are delivered by a highly trained clinical staff, moving you toward a sustainable life in recovery.

Individual Therapy

At every level of care, you will meet one-on-one with your primary therapist for individual therapy, where you’ll be able to dig deeper into the issues you’re facing and build on the work done in group settings. This time provides you with a qualified professional to listen without judgment, giving you the space to safely raise and address personal issues and allowing you to process deeper trauma.


  • Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is often referred to as “talk therapy.” You and your primary therapist will engage in a dialogue about problems and challenges, identify unhealthy behavior patterns and develop healthy coping skills.
  • EMDR: Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy replaces negative emotional reactions to difficult memories with less-charged or positive reactions or beliefs. Learn more >>
  • Somatic Experiencing: Somatic Experiencing® is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. Learn more >>

Group Therapy

Many approaches to treatment are conducted in a group setting with your peers, led by a professional who specializes in the facilitation of that group. Group therapy has many benefits, including being able to learn from the challenges and successes of other people who are recovering from drug or alcohol use, providing a space for a culture of accountability as you practice your coping skills, and growing in your recovery as part of a community that can help lift you up in the most challenging times and provide you the opportunity to do the same for others.

  • Somatic Experiencing: Somatic Experiencing® is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders.
  • Mindfulness: Mindfulness and mindfulness meditation can help us break the cycle by becoming the observer of our present moment and by learning how to tolerate discomfort. Learn more >>
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on exploring the connections between a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Learn more >>
  • Healthy Relationships & Boundaries: Clients learn to identify unhealthy codependent relationships that may be triggers for substance use, develop healthy relationships and set and reinforce boundaries with friends, family and loved ones.
  • Self-Regulation and Coping Skills: Through reflection and discussion, particpants learn to examine reaction patterns and acquire the skills to cope with stressors and triggers.
  • Process Groups: Much like psychotherapy, process groups are an open format to allow clients to engage in a dialogue with the therapist and their peer group about goals, challenges, triggers and successes. This collaborative approach provides a unique perspective.
  • Seeking Safety: Seeking Safety is an evidence-based, present-focused counseling model to help people attain safety from trauma and substance abuse. It directly addresses both trauma and addiction without requiring clients to delve into detailed accounts of disturbing memories. Learn more >>

Group Therapy: Integrated Wellness & Healing Arts

  • Art Therapy: Art therapy allows participants to make sense of past experiences and safely navigate, understand and validate emotions and triggers.
  • Yoga: We emphasize the importance of the breath within every movement and posture to remind students to tune in to the present moment and to trust their bodies.
  • Nutrition & Wellness: Our registered dietitian’s expertise covers a wide area of practice from integrating nutritional healing into addiction and recovery care to the management of disordered eating. Our integrative medicinal approach to nutrition intervention includes both clinical and holistic styles.
  • Drumming for Healing: Participants get in touch with the rhythm that starts with their heartbeat and grows from there, transforming them into a position of well-being.
  • Breathworks: Breathworks is a powerful breathing technique custom-designed as a meditation for healing mind, body and spirit. This breathing pattern allows us to let go of any road blocks we have created for ourselves within the mind and soul, releases blocked energy, opens the heart, provides healing benefits to the physical body and offers relief for those battling PTSD.
  • Rock to Recovery: Rock to Recovery gives people the outlet to challenge themselves and channel the music that’s deep in their soul, many for the first time. For those struggling with PTSD, TBI, addiction or mental health symptoms, it may have been years since having this part of themselves activated.

Case Management

Case management is provided on a daily basis as a system of both support and accountability. You will meet with your case manager on a regular basis to check in on your relapse prevention plan and involvement in community recovery meetings. Your case manager will also work with you to address legal, family and personal issues.

Family Integration and Healing

Multi-family groups are provided to clients and their family members to help everyone in the recovery process. Groups include topics like psycho education, enabling behaviors, codependency and pain and loss. Our clinicians incorporate role reversal exercises, learning to manage enabling behaviors, and teach families the importance of mindfulness in the recovery process.
