Long-lasting and sustainable recovery is best achieved in programs that are dynamic and varied, catering to the diverse population of clients and their specific needs. These programs account for each client’s personality, addictive substance or behavior and any accompanying mental health conditions. At Cypress Lakes Lodge, our goal is to provide that integrated, holistic approach to addiction treatment by bringing together emotional skill building, life skills, a boost of confidence and a healthy living mindset. When we can teach our clients how to recognize what they need from their lives and how to get it in a healthy way — without addictive substances and behaviors — we know that true lifelong recovery without relapse can be achieved.

The terms “integrated” and “holistic” are often grouped in with the idea of “alternative medicine” — treatment approaches that avoid modern medical practices in favor of things like aromatherapy, herbal tinctures, essential oils and massage. But in addiction treatment, these words mean much more. To us, “holistic” means “whole” — treatment that focuses on the whole person, rather than just one aspect. Each person has a mind, body and spirit that are equally affected by substance abuse and addiction. Too often, the mind and spirit are neglected in favor of healing the symptoms of substance abuse that can be seen and felt: withdrawal symptoms, poor nutrition or physical ailments brought on as a result of self-neglect in the grip of addiction.

As for “integrated,” we seamlessly combine all aspects of our treatment to create our signature holistic recovery experience. Our physical therapies, mental health treatments and spiritual care are core components of every client’s treatment and are supplemented by a variety of other options so clients can customize their recovery plan. Many of our treatments also combine multiple aspects of healing — for example, therapeutic yoga and meditation are physical, mental and spiritual; writing and art therapy can be mental and spiritual; experiential therapies can be physical and mental. Every part of treatment at Cypress Lakes Lodge is integrated, so our clients get the most out of every therapeutic encounter.
In addition, our holistic health approach to treatment isn’t a stand-alone method; instead, we supplement every integrative therapy with conventional, evidence-based mental health therapies that can guide the holistic treatment plan. With this approach to mental health and emotional, physical and spiritual wellness, we hope to unlock the underlying causes of addiction in each client that comes to us at Cypress Lakes Lodge.

The Cypress Lakes Lodge Difference

Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff members are fully committed to our clients, their families and their successes. We are guided by our evidence-based treatments, which are designed to tie in all aspects of each client’s world to help them achieve comprehensive wellness. Our treatment plans are built for long-term recovery that addresses psychiatric comorbidity factors and addiction, and how these affect the mind-body-spirit connection — in addition to intimate and supportive relationships that can add to each client’s quality of life. In short, Cypress Lakes Lodge addresses the whole person, not just their addiction and their symptoms.

During your time at Cypress Lakes Lodge, we work to motivate you to see the goodness and joy that can be yours once you engage in active recovery treatments. You will discover new things about yourself each and every day here. We offer each client the chance to open their minds to things they have never tried before. As we work through understanding the thought processes and needs of each client, we can offer integrative therapy modalities that can acknowledge emotional and spiritual development, and ultimately engage the mind and rework the pathways that led to addiction in the first place.To completely understand the complexity of addiction surrounding an individual, we take into consideration the following aspects:

  • Physical effects of addictive substances
  • Mental health conditions that are pre-existing or need to be addressed through a dual diagnosis and tailored treatment
  • Emotional state of the individual and contributing factors that supply their need for addiction
  • Mindset and motivation for rehabilitation
  • Nutritional wellness and overall physical health
  • Spiritual practices that can provide support
  • Familial support and engagement
  • Current living situation and level of independence

Integrative treatment modalities support our clients by allowing them access to the emotions, feelings and thoughts that have been muted by substance abuse and addiction. These integrative treatments are offered as a method of internal exploration so that clients can move beyond the cause of addiction — they learn to let go of social pressures, cope productively with traumatic experiences and discover the benefits of sober activities. And, at Cypress Lakes Lodge, they can hone all of these skills within a beautiful and beneficial environment surrounded by nature’s gifts. Our secluded and comfortable facilities are located outside of Houston in Woodville, Texas, among peaceful woods and fresh air.
