This remarkable stunning property offers a sanctuary from the external stressors and encourages connection with self and nature. Mallard Lake's nature-centered treatment approach was designed to encourage a holistic organic healing from addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders.
Nature-Centered Therapeutic Approach:
Nature-centered treatment encompasses interaction with nature, animals and horticulture to promote and enhance empathy, compassion, reduce stress, increase physical activity and decrease learned behaviors associated with addiction. The goal of Nature-Centered Treatment is to grow a sense of control over self and the environment. Therapies involving interaction and caring for animals have demonstrated improved depression, anxiety, self-efficacy, and other aspects of health in adults. Animals provide biofeedback and mindfulness, allowing the client to understand emotional regulation and communication skills. Recent research has shown treatment that incorporates animals and nature has a significant rate of improvement. Mallard Lake's Nature-Centered approach creates interconnection amongst clients, disrupts barriers in communication and forms shared encounters and experiences. Our horticultural activities approach to recovery teaches an essential lesson in recreating new life. Nature stimulates the recovery process.

Acupuncture is an Evidence-Based Alternative Medicine that has been shown as an effective strategy for the treatment of Opiate, Cocaine, Alcohol, and Marijuana addiction.

Mallard Lake Detox Center focuses on family intervention. Family therapy intervention educates the whole family on core issues of substance use statuses, mental health disorders, sand the family dynamics that have evolved due to addiction. Family therapy focuses on those changes and patterns in an effort to bring significant positive changes for the entire family. We seek to help strengthen the families resources to provide healing and recovery for the whole family.
Unfortunately, many treatment centers do not extend services to family and, in not doing so, limits the capacity of effective treatment for the identified person in the family with the presenting substance use disorder diagnosis.
Our clients complete each of the levels of care (detox residential, outpatient) until they have successfully developed the skills and coping mechanisms to ensure that they have the best possibility of achieving and maintaining long term sobriety.
