Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center

They weren’t seeking to become newsmakers or trendsetters, although they became both.  Their simple mission: get more people well.  And, through their innovative treatment methods, they have.

An tranquil  and beautiful setting in the foothills of the Berkshires, is the location of Mountainside Treatment Center.

“Our goal has simply been to help people recover from addictions,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center.  “Over 12 years ago, the founders of Mountainside had a single vision - to find new innovative treatment modalities to bring together with evidence based programs to better the chances for drug rehab treatment to help more people.  We set out to create a treatment program that would help us to become better equipped to deal with addictions and to help more people to get well.   We began by taking a holistic approach to treatment, believing that focusing on just the mental aspect or physical aspect during the course of addiction treatment wasn’t enough.  So, we created a program that addressed the individual as a whole - their physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological needs.  Incorporating these with evidenced-based modalities, we became known as the pioneers of holistic drug rehab.  Our methodologies proved to be very successful and won widespread support throughout the entire addiction treatment field all over the nation.”

Through non-traditional offerings such as Tai Chi, yoga, guided meditation, as well as more physical responses like rope courses, Mountainside provides the varied tools that individuals need in order to successfully recover from drug and alcohol addiction.

The compassionate, caring treatment team at Mountainside is comprised of licensed and certified counselors and social workers as well as a Nurse Practitioner and a Registered Nurse, both of whom have specialization and extensive experience in drug addiction and alcohol treatment.  For clients who may have psychiatric issues and/or a dual diagnosis, Mountainside provides the services of a Psychiatrist who also has specialization in addictions.  As a result of their unique, innovative approaches to addiction treatment over the past 12 years, Mountainside has become the model for the addiction treatment field.

The program, along with its professional addiction treatment team, have earned national recognition and resulted in Mountainside being invited to Washington by the White House to meet with the White House Drug Czar, John P. Waters, for an in-depth meeting on what makes its program so successful.  These accolades did not go unnoticed within the addiction treatment field and resulted in the adoption by many throughout the country of a more holistic approach to drug addiction treatment.
