Our team offers everything from dual diagnosis to pain management and family recovery programs in addition to our respected addiction treatment programs in Wyoming. A failure to recognize and treat underlying factors in addition to addiction increases an individual’s risk of relapse. Managing mental health disorders, addiction, and pain is a lifelong commitment, but we equip our patients with the support and skills they need to ensure long-term success.

Understanding Dual Diagnosis and How It Relates to Addiction
Dual diagnosis refers to recognizing the direct link between certain mental health disorders and types of addiction. Wyoming Recovery customizes treatments for both to ensure our patients with dual disorders are given the kind of support they need. Whether you have anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in addition to your drug or alcohol addiction, we can help. Our goal is to help patients with dual disorders establish long-term healthy habits and coping skills to deal with the triggers for their disorders without a dependency on self-medicating with drugs or alcohol.
Alternative Pain Management Techniques
Many individuals develop a prescription drug addiction after being prescribed medications to treat an injury or illness. Part of our holistic approach to addiction treatment involves recommending alternative pain management techniques for patients. For example, we may suggest acupuncture, massage therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy for more effective pain management. Wyoming Recovery has an on-staff acupuncturist to help patients ease anxiety and tension, improve their sleep, and diminish their cravings and dependency on prescription drugs to alleviate their chronic pain. Cognitive behavioral therapy may take the form of group or individual therapy sessions with experienced counselors from the licensed medical staff at the nearby Wyoming Medical Center. Alternative pain management techniques may also be effective in treating the symptoms caused by withdrawal during the detoxification process.
How Our Family Recovery Program Aids in Healing and Recovery
Sometimes it takes the active involvement and encouragement of family members and other loved ones to make our addiction treatment programs stick. Our family recovery program aims to educate patients’ loved ones about the causes of addiction, as well as what to expect from addiction treatment programs and the prognosis for recovery. We believe that the family unit plays an integral role in the healing and recovery process for those with addictions. We recognize that many loved ones don’t understand how addiction works or what to do when someone they love is struggling. Therefore, we discuss several relevant topics. For example, the difference between helping and enabling is a topic covered in our family recovery program. We strive to help patients strengthen and improve relationships that may have been strained due to their addiction, so they get the long-term love and support they need from their family to remain sober or drug-free.
