At Anchor House we follow an evidenced based model that approaches recovery from all sides. We operate in a trauma informed environment, which provides a holistic approach to substance abuse treatment. We offer many therapeutic interventions and groups that are tailored to identify reasons for substance abuse and ways to remain in recovery after completion of the program. Our curriculum is designed using a phase model which allows each resident to move forward at the healthiest pace for them. In addition to individual weekly clinical sessions we offer many on–site groups, workshops and work groups. In concurrence with our clinical services we offer a vast array of nonclinical and spiritual groups, workshops and workgroups. Our goal is intended to provoke change and healing. Listed below are some of the topics covered in our curriculum.
- Life Skills
- Conflict Resolution
- Anger Management
- Relapse Prevention
- Stress Management
- Vocational Preparation

Anchor House is a place where treatment and spirituality unite through a soul sabbatical experience. According to the United States NCBI activities in music therapy are associated with a decrease in anxiety, depression, anger, and stress. Just like art therapy, it is thought to help clients tap into emotions and needs that may be difficult to express through more traditional forms of communication. Furthermore, music therapy also provides a way to motivate clients to receive treatment. Our coed choir is a source of emotional and spiritual release through music. NCBI
