We can tell you what to expect and take that mystery away.

A Day at the Ho Tai Way

We offer a variety of therapy, groups, curriculum, and experiences to fill each day, including:

Morning Daily Intention Group

Patients can start their day on a positive note by gathering with other patients for meditation and short-term behavioral goal-setting. Patients increase motivation and self-esteem by setting themselves up for small wins each day.

12-Step Meetings and Big Book Study Group

Patients attend local or Zoom meetings each day. These meetings can include but are not limited to Alcoholics Anonymous, Refuge Recovery, and Sex and Love Addiction Anonymous.

Each week, patients also participate in a Big Book Study Group led by a clinical staff member to gain knowledge and familiarity about the Twelve Steps.

She Recovers Meetings

Patients will have the opportunity to participate in She Recovers meetings, an organization focused on inspiring hope, reducing stigma, and empowering women without judgment or shame. Women are encouraged to “recover out loud” while being supported with strength and compassion. These meetings are available to women struggling with addictions of all kinds.

Education Groups

Patients have the opportunity to attend groups that focus on understanding substance use disorders (SUD), the addiction process, triggers, and relapse prevention.

Individual Therapy

Patients meet with the clinical staff at least twice a week to explore, expand and identify underlying issues that are triggering and causing or maintaining chemical dependence. Typical co-occurring issues that are discussed pertain to trauma, anxiety, depression, and abuse.

Trauma Therapy

At the Ho Tai Way, therapy includes trauma-specific discussions—including the exploration of trauma, possible origins of the trauma, and coping skills—to contain and manage the anxiety associated with heightened trauma. Various trauma-informed coping methods such as grounding techniques are also incorporated.

Trauma-Informed Yoga

Yoga is offered for a complete healing of the mind, body, and spirit with an emphasis on movement, breathing, and awareness to heal from trauma.

Trauma-Informed Art

Patients have the opportunity to participate in trauma-informed art to explore and process trauma through creativity and healing.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Groups

Negative and self-destructive thinking are common with substance use disorders. Cognition affects our well-being, so changing thought patterns is essential. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) addresses harmful thought patterns, which helps patients recognize their ability to practice alternative ways of thinking, regulate distressing emotions, and harmful behaviors.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Groups

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) can be helpful in changing behavioral patterns such as substance use and self-harm and treats mood disorders and suicidal ideation. Our DBT curriculum includes developing self-mastery, extensive learning, and implementing self-soothing techniques, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and core mindfulness.

Experiential Group

The purpose of this group is to give patients the opportunity to adjust and explore while being reintroduced to society and “real-life activities” as newly sober people. Patients get to explore healthy communication intended to foster positive relationships, rebuild damaged ones, learn conflict resolution, and verbal expression of their needs and emotions.


All patients meet with our psychiatrist within 24 hours of admission and are medically assessed and evaluated following that period. Afterward, meetings with the psychiatrist occur weekly or bi-weekly based on needs to address mental health concerns from a biochemical perspective, including medication management.
