Once you’ve completed detox, it’s time for recovery.

At The Ho Tai Way – Recovery for Women, you will begin a vigorous curriculum geared toward accessing all of the resources within you – your intellect, your heart, and your spirit – to bring forth the person you were meant to be.

Your day will include:

  • Programming from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week
  • Individual therapy
  • Group psychotherapy
  • Mindfulness practice
  • Gratitude practice
  • Daily 12-Step meetings
  • Weekly experiential group therapy
  • Weekly progress tracker

Each of these learning contexts is an integral part of the treatment process. Trauma-informed education and mindfulness techniques flow throughout the curriculum. We focus each lesson on the goals of building resilience and strengthening self-awareness, accessing your own inner ability to heal and recover.


Our entire program, including detox, is a total of 30 days, so the residential treatment program typically averages 21-23 days.

Therapy Work

At The Ho Tai Way – Recovery for Women, patients receive both individual and group therapy. We believe in the whole-person approach, taking individual needs into account. Everyone meets with their designated therapist at least two to three times per week.

We utilize a variety of therapeutic methods in the healing process, including:

  • Trauma-informed care: Women who have suffered trauma face unique challenges in healing from addiction. Trauma-informed care is inclusive and allows women to feel safe and empowered as they engage in the healing process at their own pace.
  • Psychoeducation based on CBT and DBT: Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) are two evidence-based methods of therapy. As two of the most effective forms of addiction treatment, we incorporate them into our treatment modalities.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a bilateral therapy used to heal trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This evidence-based practice reprocesses traumatic memories in the brain to allow rapid and lasting healing from trauma that happened even in childhood.
  • Psychoeducation based on shame: Since shame is so common with both women and addiction, we spend a lot of time addressing this in our therapy work. We use the curriculum from Brené Brown on shame to help you realize that you are enough.
  • Mindfulness: We teach mindfulness as a powerful tool in the healing process and an essential tool for relapse prevention. Mindfulness allows you to be present and in the moment rather than reactive to emotions or triggers.
  • Yoga: We utilize yoga as a healing form of reconnecting the mind, body, and spirit. In addition to the physically strengthening powers, yoga helps cleanse and strengthen the mind and spirit and helps prevent relapse as well.
  • Group Sandplay therapy: Sandplay therapy allows patients to communicate thoughts and emotions nonverbally by using figures in a sand tray to represent their experiences and feelings. This powerful form of experiential therapy encourages patients to open up faster and easier than more traditional methods.


The Recovery Program


You will engage in the trauma-informed 12-Step process to work on every dimension of your recovery. We utilize the wisdom of The 12 Steps with the compassion, empathy, and inclusiveness of trauma-informed care that helps avoid some of the trauma-related triggers associated with traditional treatment methods. We also offer trauma-informed 12-Step meetings.

We will use motivational interviewing to encourage deeper thinking about each step while respecting your need to have some control as you move forward. Motivational interviewing involves the therapist asking guided questions to help you make decisions about your behaviors, desires, and goals.

Your family has been down this road with you, and we will continue to involve them in the treatment process, helping you all heal and grow together. We offer weekly sessions with a spouse or parent who provides healthy support to the patient to help educate and stay connected as a family.



The Most Crucial Education: Yourself


Education is the first step toward self-awareness, the key to healing. Understanding who you are, your role in your addiction, and finding your direction are the tasks at hand.

All human beings desire to give and receive respect, compassion, honesty, generosity, and humility.

Addiction has a way of twisting who we are, so we lose these virtues in ourselves. We find ourselves lying to loved ones and hiding from them with this idea that they just don’t understand.

As you find these virtues inside yourself again, you will begin to anticipate how to restore your family life, work life, and your self-esteem. As you grow stronger in who you are, you can rebuild your relationships and become a part of your community. Instead of taking, you will receive. Having received, you will be able to give freely.
