The holistic and trauma-informed services at Sage Recovery and Wellness Center are designed to allow for a custom-built individualized treatment plan ranging from a structured and intensive program to services chosen a la carte style all with the same thing in mind: provide the level and type of support that best fits your treatment needs. We meet clients where they are at and affirm their self-identified goals for treatment. The therapeutic modality underpinning our outpatient services is Dialectical Behavior Therapy which promotes autonomous regulation of emotions through tangible skills and mindfulness practices. At Sage Recovery, we believe clients are simply doing the best they can with the knowledge and skills they currently possess, and our outpatient services aim to equip individuals with a greater understanding of self and their environment in order to foster feelings of empowerment. We also believe that our clients may not have caused all their problems, but they do have a responsibility to respond in a healthy way to solve them. Our holistic and trauma-informed outpatient services incorporate many other modalities such as EMDR, CBT, ACT, Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) and others. Additionally, Sage Recovery understands that all recovery journeys to wellness are unique and flexibility is necessary. We offer opportunities for clients to explore different recovery models and do not rigidly impose one method over another.
Adult Yoga Therapy
Yoga Therapy promotes wellness through encompassing a physical, psychological, and spiritual healing. Traditional yoga positions, breathing exercises, and relaxation/meditation techniques are used to explore psychological issues to create a pathway to inner and outer balance. It can be particularly helpful with chronic conditions included but not limited to mental health concerns, addiction, and chronic pain. We utilize restorative yoga practice which is a calming yoga practice and all physical limitations and skill levels can be accommodated.
Sessions are offered in a group setting as well as individually. Individually, clients will work with a licensed master level therapist who is also a certified yoga teacher to set clear expectations and goals for treatment. Individual sessions include talk therapy around thoughts or emotions that surface during physical sequences. In a group setting, clients are taught physical sequences and provided with education on the significance of the movement, however, the processing of thoughts and emotions are limited.
Our qigong provider (pronounced “chee gong”) uses the “Sheng Zhen Gong” method: a system of standing, sitting, and lying qigong forms and contemplations that are designed to open the heart. Qigong has been shown to improve the lives of those who practice it by harmonizing the body, quieting the mind and balancing the emotions. The practice is designed to bring about a feeling of well-being, harmony with one’s surroundings and a feeling of divine contentment.
Adult Psychiatric Medication Management
Prescribing psychiatric medication to individuals in recovery requires an experienced and mindful approach. Our psychiatric providers invest time and energy in achieving a regimen that supports your mental health and substance use needs. A Psychiatric Evaluation begins that process to evaluate need for medication or alternative interventions that will compliment your journey to sobriety.

Adult Couples Therapy
Couples counseling is the process of working with two people (dating, married, partnered, or parenting jointly) on existing road blocks in the relationship. Instead of an individual being thought of as the client, the relationship issues are considered the client. Clients will work with a licensed master level therapist to identify the specific area(s) of concern and move the relationship from being stuck to functional. While in a safe and confidential environment, couples can explore thoughts, feelings, behaviors, beliefs, concerns and expectations that may be influencing their relationship in a positive or negative way. Immediate issues will be addressed and goals around treatment will be established to ensure progress and growth, to re-establish balance in the relationship.
