This announcement is in line with the healthcare center’s commitment to helping individuals suffering from substance abuse or mental health disorders take the road to recovery. The clinical team at Icarus Behavioral Health offers a holistic approach and specializes in dual-diagnosis disorder treatment.
Individuals who need help to overcome alcohol or drug use disorders now have the option of inpatient or outpatient treatment at this newly launched facility in New Mexico. Both options include various science-driven approaches to help the client reach and maintain sobriety.
According to the National Center for Drug Abuse, 31.9 million people are current substance abusers. The team at Icarus recognizes that there is not just one solution that suits every patient. Because of that, different treatment strategies are available, and the team’s experts will match each patient with the best alternative.
Icarus Behavioral Health has chosen evidence-based treatment that focuses on recovery and encourages individuals to define a new way of being in the world. Patients who suffer from co-occurring disorders can benefit from their Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) approach which is a combination of medication, psychological, educational, and social interventions.
One of the main treatment strategies at Icarus is Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART), which is similar to other recovery group programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, but SMART emphasizes science instead of faith. SMART participants learn science-proven management tools, so they can control their cravings and combat drug abuse and addiction long term.
Icarus Behavioral Health’s website explains that even though the overall focus of SMART differs from that of 12-step programs, the benefits of being part of a group of individuals who provide mutual support are similar.
In addition, SMART is a flexible strategy. As new scientific data about substance abuse recovery becomes available, SMART refreshes its methods to provide new effective strategies.
Icarus Behavioral’s team aims to provide the highest quality of evidence-based, customized treatment for their patients. They incorporate the resources available in the New Mexico area, including activities like hiking, zip-lining, attending local events like the world-famous Albuquerque hot air balloon festival, and much more.
One satisfied client wrote, “Icarus and their team get what it means to help those in need. It’s all first-class – from the setting to the great food to the team. Thanks for getting my wings back, Icarus.”
