If you are searching for treatment opportunities related to a substance use disorder, a mental health condition, chronic pain, trauma or a process addiction, Black Horse Health is here to help you heal.


Every person has their own story, and at Black Horse Health, we understand and appreciate each individual’s unique background. Our mission is to offer effective treatments that tackle each person’s challenges head-on. Our approach is inspired by our belief in your strength and resilience. 

Here is an outline of some of the primary conditions we treat, along with how we tailor our care to help each person thrive on their path to recovery:

Mental Health Conditions

Mental health is a broad term that refers to how we feel, think, and act. Our mental health affects how we handle stress, relate to others, and navigate the world around us. 

When individuals struggle with mental health symptoms such as persistent sadness or worry, this can affect almost every aspect of their lives.

At Black Horse Health, we address and apply mental health treatments concerns like depression, anxiety, and other conditions. Our collaborative team works with you to provide comprehensive care for your symptoms. We offer supportive and evidence-based assessment, diagnosis, stabilization, and personalized treatment options to help you find balance and clarity in your life.

Substance Use Disorders

substance use disorder is a treatable mental disorder that affects a person’s brain and behavior, leading to their inability to control their use of substances like legal or illegal drugs, alcohol, or medications.

At Black Horse Health, we treat a variety of substance use disorders. Some common substances that we can help treat include:

Mental Health Treatments


Benzodiazepines slow down brain activity. Examples include:

  • Alprazolam/Xanax
  • Ativan
  • Clonazepam/Klonopin
These substances can lead to dependence or misuse. We help you understand the role these substances play in your life and then work with you to develop strategies to manage their use.


Opioids are often prescribed for pain, but they also have a high addiction potential. Some commonly prescribed opioids include:
  • Heroin
  • Hydrocodone
  • Dilaudid
  • Fentanyl
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone
If you find yourself relying heavily on these substances, we can provide support and guidance on healthier ways to manage pain and reduce or eliminate opioid use.


Like amphetamine and cocaine, these substances speed up the brain’s activity. Overuse can lead to heart, thyroid, and mental health problems. Examples include:

  • Amphetamine
    • Adderall
    • Ritalin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Bath Salts or other research chemicals


Black Horse Health offers treatment options to help you understand your substance use patterns and find healthier ways to boost energy or mood.


Substances such as marijuana, LSD, Mushrooms, and MDMA may distort reality. While some people use them recreationally, they may have negative effects. We help you navigate any challenges related to these substances, ensuring you remain grounded and resilient during the healing process.


Described as a psychoactive substance with dependence-producing properties. The harmful use of alcohol causes a high burden of disease and has significant social and economic consequences.


Chronic pain refers to pain that lingers, often for several months or even years. Unlike the pain from a scraped knee or a stubbed toe, which goes away as the injury heals, chronic pain sticks around, sometimes without a clear cause. 

At Black Horse Health, we recognize the profound impact this may have on your daily life. We work with you to pinpoint the source and create a plan to manage and reduce your pain. This may involve therapies, exercises, or other integrative treatment opportunities designed specifically for you.


Trauma may arise from a single event, like an accident, or from ongoing stressful situations, such as abusive relationships. It can cause long-lasting feelings of fear, anxiety, and helplessness. 

We understand that trauma may shape a person’s perceptions and reactions, sometimes in ways that aren’t helpful or healthy. By working with us, we can help you process these experiences and develop strategies to cope, heal, and move forward.


Process addiction, also known as behavioral addiction, involves engaging in a particular activity to the point where it negatively impacts your life.

This can include:
  • Gambling
  • Shopping
  • Gaming
  • Internet
  • Eating or food-related behaviors, such as overeating or restricting  

These behaviors are often an attempt at self-medication, but they can interfere with your daily life. We offer a compassionate approach to help you understand these conditions and identify alternative coping mechanisms.

Levels of Care We Provide

Levels of care allow patients to receive the right treatment based on their needs and the severity of their situation. The first step in determining the best care for you is the initial assessment.

Here’s how it works:


You will have a one-on-one conversation with a trained specialist. They’ll ask about your health, your history of substance use, and other related topics.


Your doctor may recommend medical tests to help provide a clear picture of your physical condition.


Based on this discussion and any tests, a decision is made on the appropriate level of care tailored to your needs.

Levels of Care

We offer various levels of care, including:
  • Detox programs for individuals needing to safely and comfortably withdraw from substances.
  • Mental health stabilization programs for those who need added help when they first come to treatment.
  • Residential programs for individuals who need a safe and structured environment in which to recover.
  • Partial hospitalization programs for individuals who require intensive treatment and have completed RTC.
  • Intensive outpatient programs for individuals who can manage their daily responsibilities but still need treatment.
  • Family and alumni programs for individuals and their families to continue to receive support and care.

Treatment Services and Therapies Offered

At Black Horse Health, we understand that everyone’s journey with addiction is different. This is why we use a multi-faceted approach. We have various ways to help you, ensuring you receive the care that best meets your unique needs.

Individual, Group, and Family Therapy

Generally, our treatments fall into two main categories: individual therapy and group therapy. We also offer family therapy for those who want to work on their relationships with loved ones.
Individual Therapy
In individual therapy, you’ll meet one-on-one with your therapist. This is a way to explore your feelings, behaviors, or beliefs without worrying about others judging you. You can then develop methods to cope with your struggles.
Group Therapy
In group therapy, you’ll join a small group of people who are also going through recovery. This allows you to share your experiences and receive support from others in similar situations. You’ll also learn from others’ insights and coping strategies.
Family Therapy
In family therapy, we address any issues or unhealthy patterns within the family dynamic that might contribute to the issues you’re facing. By working together, we can improve communication and understanding within the family unit, which can positively impact your recovery journey.

Evidence-Based Treatments

We lean on treatments that have been proven to work. These methods have been studied and tested, showing that they can truly make a difference in holistic and supportive recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a type of talk therapy. It focuses on how your thoughts and feelings affect your actions. In CBT sessions, you’ll work with a therapist to identify patterns of thinking or behavior that might be causing distress or other negative symptoms. You’ll then learn ways to change these patterns.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is similar to CBT, but it has some added components. DBT teaches you skills to cope with strong emotions. It’s especially useful if you experience feelings that change quickly and intensely. 

During sessions, you’ll learn skills like mindfulness, which is about staying present in the moment. You will also learn about distress tolerance, which helps you handle tough situations without turning to substances.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT focuses on accepting rather than fighting difficult thoughts and emotions. You’ll learn to be present in the moment, stay true to your values, and commit to taking action that aligns with your goals.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a kind of therapy for individuals who have been through traumatic events. During EMDR sessions, a therapist will guide your eye movements while you briefly recall the traumatic event. Over time, this process can help reduce the distress linked with those memories.

Medication Stabilization

If medication is necessary for your recovery, our team will work with you to find the right balance and ensure you’re taking it as prescribed. We believe in using medication (if needed) as a tool in conjunction with therapy and other treatments to help manage symptoms and support overall recovery.

Life Skills Education

During your time with us, we’ll provide tools to help you cope with life’s challenges. You can learn healthy habits and practices like time management, communication skills, and money management. These skills can help you maintain your recovery long after treatment. 

Relapse Prevention Strategies

We understand that relapse is a possibility. 

Black Horse Health works with you to give you the tools you need to prevent or mitigate relapse. This way, you can recognize the warning signs before they become a more prominent issue. We’ll also provide support in developing healthy coping mechanisms for any challenges you may face in the future.

Specialized Therapies

Black Horse Health offers a range of treatment pathways that cater to specific challenges faced by every patient, such as:

TMS Therapy

TMS therapy, or transcranial magnetic stimulation, is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate specific areas of the brain. This can be helpful for conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. 

TMS therapy has shown promising results in many patients who have not responded well to traditional treatments.

Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback Therapy

A brain map, or a quantitative EEG (qEEG), is an advanced diagnostic tool that helps us understand how your brain functions. The test involves placing sensors on your head and recording electrical activity. This information helps our team to identify any areas of concern.

Neurofeedback therapy uses the same technology to provide real-time feedback, allowing you to train your brain and improve its functioning. This can help with conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, and traumatic brain injuries.

Hormone Testing and Balancing

Hormones are chemical messengers that control many bodily functions. When hormones become imbalanced, it can lead to a range of symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, and weight gain. 

Our team can perform hormone testing to identify any imbalances and provide targeted treatment to restore your body’s natural harmony.

Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen therapy works by increasing the amount of oxygen in your blood. During the session, you’ll receive oxygen through a mask or nasal prongs. This can provide many benefits, such as promoting healing, reducing inflammation, and improving mental clarity.

Holistic and Wellness-Oriented Therapies

Holistic and wellness-oriented therapies look at the full picture of your well-being. Instead of targeting just one part of your health, these treatments address your mind, body, and spirit.

Nutritional and Fitness Assessments

The body relies on food as its source of energy. What you eat can also affect your mood, energy levels, and overall health. Our team can perform nutritional assessments to determine any deficiencies or imbalances that could be impacting your recovery.

We also offer fitness assessments to help you develop a healthy exercise routine that aligns with your physical abilities and goals.

Vitamin Infusions and Restoration Therapy

Vitamin infusions are a powerful way to replenish essential nutrients in your body. Our team can create personalized infusion blends based on your specific needs, whether it’s for physical or mental health concerns.

Restoration therapy aims to improve your body’s natural ability to heal. These can help reduce stress, pain, and inflammation while promoting overall well-being.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can help you regain strength, mobility, and function after an injury or illness. This treatment may include exercises, stretches, and other techniques to improve your physical well-being.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy involves gentle manipulation of the bones in your skull, spine, and pelvis. This can help with conditions such as chronic pain, headaches, and anxiety. By releasing tension and improving the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, this therapy aims to restore balance to your body.

Aqua Therapy
Aqua therapy uses water to help with healing and exercise. Because water supports your weight, it can be easier to move and stretch. This is especially helpful if you have pain or difficulty moving. The water’s gentle nature means it’s kind to your joints while helping to build muscle strength.
Cold Plunge

A cold plunge involves immersing yourself in very cold water for a short period. While it might sound challenging, taking a cold plunge can invigorate and awaken your senses. Some people also find it useful after intense physical activity to help with recovery.

Infrared Sauna Therapy

Infrared sauna therapy involves using infrared light to heat your body and promote sweating. This can help with conditions such as chronic pain and detoxification. In addition to physical benefits, it can also improve mood and overall well-being.

Chiropractic and Massage Therapy

Chiropractic care involves adjusting your spine and other joints to improve their alignment and function. This can help with a range of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, and sports injuries. Massage therapy aims to release tension in your muscles while promoting relaxation and healing.

Sleep, Mindfulness, and Relaxation Techniques

Sleep is the foundation of good mental and physical health. Our team can offer guidance and support to help you develop healthy sleep habits. 

Mindfulness and relaxation techniques can also be helpful in managing stress, anxiety, and other mental health concerns. These practices focus on being present in the moment and can reduce negative thoughts and emotions while promoting calmness and self-awareness.

Alternative and Creative Therapies

Alternative and creative therapies are unique approaches that help people explore and understand their feelings in non-traditional ways. These holistic methods step away from regular talk therapies and use activities to guide you toward self-discovery and healing. 

These treatment modalities are especially helpful when used in conjunction with more traditional treatment techniques. Alternative therapies we offer include:

Art and Expressive Therapy

Art therapy is a chance for you to express yourself through painting, drawing, or other art forms. You don’t need to be a great artist. It’s about letting out feelings, maybe ones you can’t put into words. When you create art, it can help you see things in a new way and understand your emotions.

Other expressive therapies include music, dance, and writing. These creative outlets can help you connect with your emotions and express them in a safe and meaningful way.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy involves spending time with horses. It’s not just about riding them; even brushing or feeding a horse can be therapeutic. 

Horses are sensitive creatures. They react to how we feel and can help us become more aware of our emotions. Spending time with horses aids the recovery process by helping you develop and nurture a feeling of calmness and serenity.
