OUR UNIQUE ADDICTION TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY FOR YOUNG MEN
After nearly two decades of serving chemically dependent young men, Beartooth Mt Ascent’s unique addiction treatment philosophy for young men is built around our belief that addiction is a distorted means of meeting emotional needs. We believe that recovery begins when we are willing to look at our 6 basic emotional needs and learn to meet them in healthy ways. We do this through education, cognitive restructuring and experiential therapies.
While living in Beartooth Mt Ascent’s structured environment, the young men begin to experience a life free from active addiction. As the young men move through progressive levels of our Passport To Manhood Program, each comprising a broad spectrum of specialty groups and life skills training, they begin to have renewed hope that they will be free from the slavery of their addiction. Each of these elements helps the young men unearth the issues that drive his addiction, allowing the him to learn to deal with the addictive response and develop the coping skills he needs to handle urges in a healthy way.
It is essential to recovery for struggling young men to identify the underlying issues that tend to drive the habits of substance abuse or any addiction. As young adults begin to recover from the shame that surrounds their unhealthy behavior, they can learn how to relate to self and others. This process gives the young men an opportunity to develop healthy coping mechanisms and the socialization skills necessary to maintain abstinence. Upon completion of our Young Adult Addiction Treatment Program at Beartooth Mt Ascent, they are more prepared to face life’s challenges substance free.
Recent studies indicate that young adults with addictive disorders are seldom addicted to just one substance or behavior. They are experiencing significant life changes, and are subject to high levels of peer pressure. For example, addiction is listed as one of the top five mental health problems facing college students, which is not surprising as these young adults are exposed to new responsibilities, settings and people all at once. At Beartooth Mt Ascent we understand the importance of flexibility in meeting the therapeutic needs of these and other individuals as they learn to navigate their constantly changing social environments.

Therapy also involves education on the complexity of addiction’s effects on the brain, as well as intensive, experiential workshops where patients gain self-insight through equine therapy. The goal of therapy is to increase self-awareness and self-confidence while providing tools for recovery.

Spirit. We use spirituality as a means to connect to self, others, nature, and one’s own faith. Drug and alcohol addiction often times disconnects the family from the individual. We focus on reconnecting and strengthening the spirit that lies within the family. Beartooth Mt Ascent utilizes a Christian Virtue Formation Training to help restore a healthy moral code of values in each young man.
