Inpatient Treatment at Harmony Hills

Addiction is a very serious disease that has ravaged communities large and small, from all over the world. Although it’s very difficult for an individual to overcome a substance abuse problem on his or her own, research has shown us that recovery is not only possible but attainable through the utilization of a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation. At Harmony Hills in Altoona, Florida, we have crafted an inpatient recovery experience capable of addressing the mind, body, and spirit through the combined use of science and holism.

While many substance abuse and addiction treatment programs address addiction in part rather than in whole, we at Harmony Hills utilize a more comprehensive and encompassing model of recovery. By drawing on the most proven techniques from an array of disciplines, our curriculum is one that can simultaneously treat the body, the brain or “mind,” and the spirit.

But what does it mean to treat body, mind, and spirit? To be certain, Harmony Hills isn’t your average holistic treatment center. Although we do incorporate some aspects of holism in our programming, the greatest influences on the design of our programs are in the areas of science. This means that the treatments we offer are not only comprehensive but also based on the most current evidence with proven success for recovery. Rather than bending to the outdated conventions of addiction rehabilitation, we at Harmony Hills have gone beyond tradition by offering a blend of the spiritual East with the scientific West.

Located in Altoona, Florida, Harmony Hills recognizes that every patient is unique, so we promise each patient a unique recovery journey through the implementation of individualized treatment programs. Every person responds differently to each type of treatment, and this is why we work with our patients to create customized treatment plans. It’s through the combined use of modern science alongside elements of holism as well as our patient-centered approach to treatment that make Harmony Hills a leader in the world of addiction treatment and recovery.

What is “Inpatient” Treatment?

It’s useful to think of addiction treatment as existing on a spectrum with outpatient-style treatment on one end and inpatient treatment on the other. As you might expect, outpatient programs are ones in which patients continue to live at home while commuting to their treatment facilities for treatments on their predetermined days. Meanwhile, inpatient care provides patients with temporary residential accommodations for the duration of treatment, which is why inpatient care is sometimes referred to as residential treatment.

Although we do offer cutting-edge outpatient treatment, we at Harmony Hills consider ourselves predominantly a center for inpatient substance abuse treatment in Altoona, Florida. However, it’s important that we specify that our emphasis on inpatient treatment is consistent with the latest evidence on the efficacy of various types of addiction treatment; according to the latest evidence, patients have the highest chances of achieving lasting sobriety after completing an inpatient program compared to forms of outpatient care. Moreover, every component of our inpatient substance abuse treatment is rooted in real data.

A Recovery Program Rooted in Science

As stated above, the curriculum at Harmony Hills is rooted in real data and evidence, and this is evident from the beginning to the end of our inpatient care. In fact, there’s science behind each and every component of our programs, which consist of:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI) & Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy (TIR)
  • Medication Management
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • General Healthcare
  • Mental Health Treatment

After orientation and intake, the first step in our inpatient substance abuse treatment is stabilization. Once stabilization has been achieved, a patient proceeds to the actual treatment phase of recovery. Typically, the treatment phase equates to a mixture of psychotherapy and individual counseling, group therapies, holistic treatments, and even some alternative and complementary therapies. The ultimate goal is to match each patient’s recovery needs and preferences with a unique curriculum that can account for and address them.

Of course, even the most science-based programs offer opportunities for recreational and leisure. At Harmony Hills in Altoona, Florida, we encourage our patients to spend some of their free time working out at our fully-equipped on-site gym, engaging in team sports on our basketball courts, swimming in our large swimming pool, visiting the stables and rodeo for horseback riding and equine therapy, participating in our therapeutic ropes course, and improving endurance and mental acuity via our walking trails and labyrinth.
