The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states that “no single treatment is appropriate for everyone.” Substance use disorders are complex and affect your body, mind, social functioning, and overall health.
An individualized treatment plan responds to your needs and characteristics as an individual. At The Bluffs, we’ll start by examining your comprehensive H & P (history and physical) from your healthcare provider. You’ll then receive an assessment to further determine your needs.
We Start With A Comprehensive Biopsychosocial Assessment
During your first few days of treatment at The Bluffs, a licensed clinician will conduct a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment.
This assessment will cover mental health history, family history, treatment history, and military experience and background. This assessment will also include your strengths, supports, and therapeutic preferences.
Any relevant information from your healthcare provider will also be incorporated into the assessment. Overall, the assessment will help us establish your individualized treatment team.
Who Is On Your Treatment Team?
After the initial assessment, you’ll be connected with a treatment team that fits your needs and responds to the assessment. Your treatment team will match your therapeutic preferences.
Depending on your needs, your treatment team may include:
- a Master’s level therapist
- substance abuse counselors
- a case manager
- a certified nurse practitioner (CNP)
- a physician
- a dietician

We Address Additional Co-Occurring Needs
Your treatment team at The Bluffs will help you receive the care you need for depression, anxiety, trauma, family issues, and other co-occurring needs. Our licensed therapists are skilled at treating patients with multiple clinical issues.
Your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s focused on your needs and goals. If this includes addressing mental health issues related to your addiction, we’ll monitor you carefully and make any adjustments as needed.
Medical Monitoring And Detox Services
After your comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, your medical baseline will be established. At The Bluffs, a physician or certified nurse practitioner (CNP) will monitor your lab results to determine your ongoing wellness and make changes to your care plan as needed.
If you need to receive detox services at our facility, then your care plan will be based on your medical needs and progress. The care plan will be developed by a physician or CNP.
Diet And Nutrition Are Important For Your Recovery
Eating nutritious food supports not only your body, but your mind and spirit as well. At The Bluffs, you’ll have nutritional support and guidance to help you develop healthy eating habits for recovery and overall well-being.
Your treatment team includes an executive chef who will cater to your diet and nutritional needs. Your dietary needs and any allergies, sensitivities, and health restrictions will be identified throughout your stay and adjusted as needed.
Your Choice Of Therapy Groups
At The Bluffs, you can choose the therapy groups that work for you. Our therapists will help you understand the different types of behavioral therapies and group therapies available.
Examples of our group therapies include:
- mindfulness groups
- coping skills groups
- parenting groups
- life skills groups
- A Balanced Life group
You can also receive education in substance use disorders and how it affects your health and life. As your treatment progresses, we’ll also offer relapse prevention groups and start developing a continuing care plan to support your recovery.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
Different people recover at different rates, and some people can progress through treatment levels more quickly than others.
In a way, formal treatment program lengths aren’t as important as receiving support for a lifelong recovery. Your assessment will help you and your treatment team decide how long you should stay at The Bluffs. Before you leave, we’ll coordinate an individual recovery plan.
Individual Recovery Plans
Continuing care/recovery plans help you avoid or cope with relapse should it occur. You’ll work with a case manager who will coordinate a continuing care plan following treatment. This detailed plan will be specific to you and may include, but is not limited to:
- follow-up appointments
- sober-living housing
- mental health support
- family therapy
- peer support
- access to community resources
