* Individual Therapy: Each Treatment Program Resident receives three individual therapy sessions per week with their primary therapist. Family therapy occurs weekly via VZ, phone or on-site. Review of a resident’s multi-disciplinary treatment plan occurs weekly.

1 Exposure Response Prevent (ERP) Group: A key component of the treatment programming – the unique and specialized evidenced-based component of Mountain Valley Treatment Center. ERP is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) modality designed to provide gradual exposure and habituation to what causes a particular anxiety or compulsion. As psycho-education, this group therapy component of exposure therapy supports the individual therapy in which a resident is participating.

2 Activity Therapy Module Programming: This is the holistic, experiential program component of Mountain Valley Treatment Center. Modules are designed to foster skill development and mastery, stewardship, mindfulness and health and fitness. They include Farm-to-Table, Yoga & Meditation, Academics, Equine, Art, Health and Wellness, and Therapeutic Recreation.

3 Milieu Strengthening Activity:  Making “TRACKS”; Trust, Resilience, Acceptance, Courage and Knowledge. This is a time where residents can build healthy community living skills, practice gratitude, and support each other’s treatment progress. TRACKS is the cultural backbone of our therapeutic community.

Group Therapy:  As a short-term residential treatment center, Mountain Valley offers multiple group therapy sessions per week in addition to the Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) groups that occur twice per week. Thematic Group Therapy includes Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Expressive Arts, and DBT skills.

WEEKEND SCHEDULE:  Residents participate in diverse, seasonally specific programming on Saturdays and Sundays. Extended off-campus cultural, arts and recreational activities such as trips to nearby Dartmouth College, Boston, local ski slopes, adventure activities, and sports are just a small part of the weekend programming.
