Treatment ProgramMental Health - Addiction - Trauma
Many treatment professionals do not understand the brain science behind addictions and mental health issues, especially trauma. Maple Mountain staff is trained to recognize and treat the challenges our clients face by incorporating holistic treatment concepts, starting with the brain.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR therapy facilitates change in the meaning of painful events and the cause of presenting symptoms and issues. Rather than continuing to experience old emotions and beliefs about self that impact present functioning, clients are able to live in the present, knowing they are worthwhile, good enough, did the best they could, are strong, capable, safe enough, with choices in the present.
EMDR DeTUR protocol is the only method that truly works on addiction, eating disorder and trauma triggers.
Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows central nervous system to function better.
Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain disregulation. These happen to be numerous. They include the anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits, behavior disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, PMS and emotional disturbances. It is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy.
Alcohol and drug abuse is an ongoing societal and treatment problem. While major resources have been employed to study and treat addiction, there has been little significant improvement in the success rate of treatment. Relapse rates remain high, typically over 70%. Gossop et al. reported 60% addicts relapsed one year following addiction treatment. Peniston and associates have demonstrated significantly higher abstinence rates with alcoholics when they incorporated EEG biofeedback into the treatment protocol. Eighty percent of subjects in these experiments were abstinent one-year post treatment.

The major benefit is the calming effect the system has on clients. The system helps clients with racing thoughts, anxiety and stress. The client is brought into a meditative state, which usually takes about 15 min. The music therapy System is composed with binaural beats and healing frequencies that trigger the body’s natural relaxation response. Research has shown that music therapy is a motivating resource that helps clients engage in their treatment. Music therapy is a popular holistic method for treating depression and anxiety.
Once the client reaches the Theta Meditative State, they are guided through powerful meditation and positive affirmations. The guided imagery selections on the biosound system are designed to address the guilt, fear, shame and trauma associated as underlying issues for most dealing with addiction. These moving meditations create a completely relaxed state of mind; then, utilizing a unique echo effect, powerful and positive affirmations are delivered. This combination helps the client overcome deep rooted, negative patterns of thought and behavior.
Cranial Electrotherapy Simulation (CES)
We offer a drug-free way to treat anxiety, depression and insomnia. CES (cranial electrotherapy simulation) is a proven way to decrease depression and anxiety. It can be used with medications as well without fear of contraindication. When used regularly, CES will assist the clients in attaining a balanced emotional state. Best results are attained when used with professional counseling, meditation and constructive relationships. Anxiety, depression, and insomnia are primary symptoms of addiction withdrawal and PTSD. CES is an electronic device that is simple to use, has no side effects, and has been validated by decades of research.
CES is currently being prescribed for active duty personnel returning from the mid-east at the Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program at Ft. Hood, TX, at Ft. Campbell, KY, Ft. Joint Ft Lewis-McChord, WA, at the Bremerton WA Naval Hospital, as well as in combat conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a cognitive behavioral therapy, which focuses on changing distorted thinking. Many clients have negative thinking and self-hatred, which has become a habit. In treatment, clients change negative behavioral patterns, which a lot of times start with the thinking. At MMR, the clients are taught that their mind is powerful and as they change their behaviors, their thinking patterns need to be changed as well. CBT is an evidence based treatment method and it is among the most effective ways to heal from addiction.
Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET)
MET is a motivation enhancement therapy. MET is the second most effective treatment method after brief intervention. MET elicits change and recovery talk. Instead of shaming clients because of their past, MET helps clients to focus on current strengths and the part of them that wants to be sober. When this part of the client is strengthened, they have a better chance of long term sobriety.
In early recovery it is vital that the client starts finding their purpose and passion for life. This enhances motivation to get through hard days in the early stages of recovery.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
DBT teaches mindfulness, a technique to help clients live their lives fuller and more aware. DBT teaches distress tolerance, effective relationship skills and emotion regulation. Using drug and alcohol is a maladaptive coping skills, so while in treatment, clients need to learn new healthy coping skills. DBT teaches coping skills and healthy approaches to lives challenges.
At Maple Mountain Recovery, clients are provided with engaging lectures and workshops that they can apply to their recovery. Clients will have adequate knowledge on their diagnoses and triggers and how to manage them on a daily basis. This knowledge is an invaluable tool at coping and continuing on in the recovery process.
Typically psychoeducation elements involve evidence-based research and cover a broad spectrum of topics. It provides a more thorough understanding on the nature of addiction and trauma and other mental health issues our clients face. The workshops also teach in depth about the biology, psychology and the recovery process.
Experiential therapy is a therapeutic approach that encourages patients to identify and address hidden or subconscious issues through activities. Therapy involves actions, movements and activities. Clients have the opportunity to experience success, identify obstacles, develop improved self-esteem and take greater responsibility for their actions.
