Anderson and Hagar Connections is an outpatient treatment facility with two locations in Denver, Colorado. In addition to group and individual therapy for substance abuse, the privately-owned rehab offers an ITTS group, which stands for Integrated Treatment of Trauma and Substance Abuse. This specialized program is designed for those who have used drugs or alcohol to cope with trauma. Applying both traditional talk therapy and more non-traditional methods like meditation and sand tray therapy, this facility provides clients with well-rounded, personal treatment plans for recovery of mind, body and spirit.
Treatment and Staff
Anderson and Hagar Connections creates an individualized treatment plan for each client based on an initial intake assessment. Counselor and client work together to decide what would be the most helpful forms of treatment. The rehab offers a variety of different therapy methods and classes to fit each individual’s needs and lifestyle.
Group therapy is the most common form of treatment at Anderson and Hagar Connections. There are a variety of specialized groups offered, including several that deal with substance abuse. Groups meet at different times each week for 12 to 18 weeks at a time. The groups are kept pretty small, around six clients each, so the group can bond and counselors can give full attention to each person. On average, a client attends one group therapy session and one individual session per week.
Both the Substance Use Recovery and Relapse Prevention programs meet at several different times throughout the week. They each employ a CBT approach and last 12 weeks, but are also available on an ongoing basis for those who want to continue beyond the 12 weeks. ITTS is an 18-week program that delves into past experiences that may have led to the destructive use of drugs and alcohol in the first place. This program combines methods like CBT, EMDR and somatic experiencing to confront trauma in a safe and supportive environment and start the healing process.
Anderson and Hagar Connections offers a unique style of therapy in the form of sand tray therapy. This is a one-on-one session for those who are interested in experiencing this kind of expressive therapy. It is not offered weekly and has to be scheduled with a counselor.
On-site staff consists of psychiatrists, psychologists and addiction counselors. There is no medical staff on location but Anderson and Hagar Connections staff work closely with off-site medical facilities and, if the initial assessment calls for it, will refer clients to detox or inpatient treatment before beginning therapy at the center. Medicaid is accepted and payment plans are available.
Family participation is included in treatment, if appropriate. Teen parenting and coping skills classes as well as DUI classes are also offered.
Aside from the substance abuse groups, Anderson and Hagar Connections has a variety of other therapeutic groups. These include Saving and Nurturing Relationships, a couples therapy group focused on opening up lines of communication to regain trust. This a six-week program meeting every other week. Mindful Stress Reduction Group integrates meditation and journaling into therapy and meets for eight weeks with a maximum of eight clients in the group.
Anderson and Hagar Connections offers affordable, traditional group and individual therapy, as well as unique styles of treatment to educate and help heal clients at their own pace. These programs are probably best suited for people who do not require the intensity or accountability of IOP or an inpatient program. Those desiring a 12-step approach will also need to look elsewhere. However, clients seeking support while exploring alternative techniques can find a safe environment here.
