How We Treat the Body

During Detox

Many individuals enter our facility in need of medical supervision for detoxification from substance abuse. Before admission, our nursing staff and admission team will evaluate your substance use and health status over the phone to determine if you are a suitable candidate for our sub-acute addiction treatment program. Upon arrival, a nurse will further assess your physical condition and work with our medical director, Dr. Carpenter, to develop a medication-assisted treatment plan for a safe and comfortable detox experience. Medications will be promptly administered and staff will closely monitor your vital signs and symptoms 24/7 to ensure a successful detox process.

In addition to medications, we offer a range of supplements and high-quality nutritional products to help restore depleted nutrients and aid in the body’s healing process. This approach helps alleviate common detox symptoms such as anxiety, nausea, dehydration, leg cramps, and insomnia. With Pathways Recovery, you can expect a relaxed and comfortable detox and recovery experience, complete with nutritious food and supplements.


The aspect of nutrition is often overlooked in detox and early recovery. Unfortunately, many treatment centers fail to address or educate on the importance of nutrition in the healing process. At Pathways Recovery, our medical director, Dr. Charles Carpenter, is not only experienced in medically-supervised detox but also specializes in functional health and leads the functional health program at the center. Our menu is carefully crafted to support both body and brain healing. The latest research in behavioral health highlights the significance of diet and gut health in depression and anxiety. A diet high in processed foods and sugar can trigger an inflammatory response that impacts both the body and brain. At Pathways Recovery, we emphasize a low glycemic, nutrient-dense menu while still offering delicious and satisfying meals and snacks. We provide fresh juices and nutrient-dense protein smoothies that are both tasty and beneficial for healing. To learn more about our menu, click here.

Physical Fitness - Cardio and Strength Training

Physical fitness is a crucial component of a healthy lifestyle, but for those in recovery, it’s especially important to understand how it can support long-term recovery by regulating the nervous system and reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. At Pathways Recovery, our treatment program includes personalized fitness training with our experienced trainer, Travis, who offers three sessions per week to all residents in our addiction treatment center.


Yoga not only strengthens the body but also soothes the mind. Our trauma-informed yoga instructor, Gabrielle, will guide you in using yoga as a tool for healing and recovery from addiction. Exercise has a well-established track record of alleviating depression and anxiety symptoms, which are commonly present during early recovery.

How We Treat the Mind

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”


Limiting beliefs and the relationship that we have with ourselves can greatly affect the way in which we see the world and the relationships we choose to engage in. We cannot have healthy relationships with others if we don’t understand  how to have a healthy relationship with ourselves.

Pathways recovery addiction treatment center utilizes a variety of evidence based treatment modalities and forms of therapy such as EMDR for trauma, Cognitive behavioral therapy, lifestyle coaching and education.

How We Treat the Spirit

The Antithesis of Addiction is Connection

Addiction is often referred to as a disease of isolation. Shame is a major factor in the cycle of avoiding emotions and feelings that lead to feelings of unworthiness and a lack of love and acceptance from others. Even when surrounded by family and friends, the struggle is often internal, rooted in a person’s relationship with themselves. This is why a spiritual connection is a vital part of the healing process. We help individuals gain a deeper understanding of spiritual connection with themselves, others, and a higher power, regardless of their religious background or beliefs.

We respect diverse backgrounds and experiences, and work with each person where they are at to foster a sense of spiritual connection and self-acceptance. Connection with the recovery community can also enhance spiritual connection as individuals share their common struggles and offer support to each other.
