Recovery looks different for every person.
Your treatment program should too.
A program that's designed just for you.
Recovery looks different for every person. Just as there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to depression or anxiety, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to addiction.
Evo’s program is flexible and fully customizable. When you arrive here, the first thing that we do is work with you to determine which of our services would be best for your life and your goals.
We want to know what’s important to you so that we can tailor your unique recovery program. If you don’t like groups, your program can focus on one-on-one sessions with a therapist. If you have a busy work or school schedule and cannot afford to take time off, we’ll make sure to schedule your sessions at a time and frequency that makes sense for you.
Over the course of your treatment, we regularly check up on your program so that we can make adjustments to fit your needs.
Therapy at Evo.
Core to Evo’s program is respect. Therapists work collaboratively with each client to identify the best outcomes for the client’s life, in relationship to substances, their relationships, and work or school. The goal is to address underlying trauma and open up new possibilities.
We see language and stories as powerful tools for creating meaning. Stories help people make sense of their experiences and form the backdrop of their relationships—with themselves, with others, and with the world. At Evo, therapists work with clients to help transform narratives that no longer serve them, and identify ones that help them live their best lives.
We believe that clients already possess the inherent ability to respond effectively to the difficulties they face. Therapists work side-by-side with clients to help them to hone these skills for positive change.
Because of our country's ambivalent history with alcohol and problem drinkers, our answer has been: "Stick with the 12 steps. It works if you work it." We should be demanding more options.

Groups at Evo.
Evo’s program is designed to build a community of peers and loved ones to support clients in their journey. Individual work can be intense because of how directly focused it is on you. Groups allow clients to have the therapeutic experience, but disperse that focus onto other people struggling with similar things.
Addiction can be an isolating, insular experience. Being in the presence of others who have struggled helps clients break out of their internal, mental cycles and see that the pain that underlies their addiction is not unique. When you can see that other people struggle in the same ways that you do, that make you beat you beat yourself up, you may find that it’s a lot easier to build a sense of self-worth.
Groups also give people the opportunity to emerge as helpers to other people. Everyone in treatment has tried things that have and haven’t worked in aiding their journey. In groups, the sheer act of sharing the ups and downs of your individual experience can help other people navigate their own.

We have to work on the trauma in your life, and only then can you change the way you deal with it."
Somatics at Evo.
Evo sees working with the body as an integral part of overcoming addiction. Somatic work is a holistic therapeutic approach that addresses the relationship between the mind and body.
For clients who often look to substances to physically alter the way they feel, somatic work can help develop new understandings of the relationship between oneself and the body. It is not unusual for clients struggling with addiction to have experienced trauma that can trigger physical and emotional reactions. As clients redefine their relationship to substances, they need new tools to manage automatic fight or flight responses. Somatic therapy helps clients pause, regulate their bodies, and begin to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Unlike many programs, somatic practitioners are an integral part of the clinical team, creating an important feedback loop between therapy and bodywork.
Somatic program elements include: somatic therapy, bodywork, nutrition, mindfulness, movement, integrative psychiatry. and more.
