Clinical Excellence

Addiction is a chronic, neurobiological disease that impacts nearly every dimension of a person’s well-being — mind, body, and spirit. For those with co-occurring disorders or busy lives filled with stress and responsibility, the effects of addiction can be even more apparent. Headwaters’ masters and doctorate-level therapists use leading-edge, evidence-based techniques to treat substance use and co-occurring disorders. At a private enclave on the Hanley Foundation campus, our clinical services begin with a thorough assessment of substance use history and other behavioral and mental health concerns that often occur alongside addiction. Our expert staff draws on a deep understanding of the unique needs and challenges of those in positions of great responsibility and guides those in our care toward lasting recovery.

During a stay at Headwaters, our clients participate in carefully selected, intensive one-on-one therapies and group therapy that seamlessly integrates addiction medicine and rigorous clinical science with timeless recovery principles. Through multiple weekly individual therapy and group sessions, our expert staff leads clients through family and relationship repair, addressing past trauma, and self-care techniques that support long-term healing.

Our Exclusive Residences

Clinical treatment facilities for the clients of Headwaters are situated in a private enclave of the lush Hanley Foundation campus to ensure the utmost privacy and allow our clients to relax and truly open up during their care. Elegantly appointed private suites provide a quiet place for healing, reflection, and recovery for men and women of means during times outside of clinical treatment. Capacity is carefully restricted to ensure an excellent staff-to-client ratio and create an intimate, peer-based setting intended to make our clients feel comfortable and at home while they engage in their intensive clinical work. Our high-amenity environment helps individuals rest, reflect, share openly, and remain focused on their recovery.

Flexible and Highly Tailored Treatment Planning

Headwaters’ highly customized treatment plans are carefully designed by a multidisciplinary team of addiction professionals who consider each client’s unique needs and preferences. Our tailored treatment plans are delivered with compassion and expertise using evidence-based therapies and complementary, holistic services. We also understand that family participation is essential to our client’s long-term recovery, and encourage families and support systems to participate actively in the healing process.

Complementary Therapies

At Headwaters, we integrate leading-edge therapeutic interventions and holistic, complementary medicine in our approach to treating addiction. Facilitated by a host of skilled and licensed providers, our expansive menu of therapies helps our clients heal on every level — mind, body, and spirit.  From acupuncture and Reiki to personal training and individual yoga classes, we guide our clients in managing stress, gaining self-awareness, and remaining centered throughout the treatment process.

Leading-edge Medical Care

Our highly skilled multi-disciplinary team includes psychiatrists, medical doctors, nurses, masters-level clinicians, wellness staff, and recovery support staff. Nestled in the private enclave of Hanly Foundation’s campus, the goal of the first part of treatment at Headwaters’ is to bring our client’s medical and substance use history into sharp focus so that medical interventions can be carefully integrated into every client’s personalized treatment plan. Our psychiatrists can prescribe appropriate medication according to continuing evaluations as each client progresses through treatment.

Following the initial detoxification period, our clients are transferred to the stately and private off-site Headwaters residence. Clients are transported to the main campus for ongoing medical and clinical activities.

Advanced Psychological Services

At Headwaters, we believe that neurological healing is central to long-term recovery. We founded our Center for Brain Recovery (CBR) to offer our clients individualized care that remains on the leading edge of mind-body research. CBR incorporates principles from the growing and interrelated disciplines of health psychology and psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), which focus on studying how mental and physical health interact. Through the efforts of CBR, we are able to incorporate the most current evidence-based techniques in our addiction and mental health treatments.
