Who We Are

About Us

We are a group of individuals who get addiction.

At Stillwater Behavioral Health we believe that different people get better with different means and that “one size doesn’t fit all”.

Our program takes a balanced and holistic approach of different therapy modalities to tailor what is needed for the individual. At Stillwater Behavioral Health, we take an entirely different approach to treating our clients. We know that not every person suffers from the same malady, which is why our experienced and professional staff deploys a distinct array of therapies to treat multiple issues ranging from drug & alcohol addiction to mental health disorders.

Stillwater takes initiative to provide a community-based, non-judgmental approach to doing treatment. This approach motivates our clients to want to be a part of their own healing and to take action in their recovery. As the author Gabor Mate tells us, “The attempt to escape from pain, is what creates more pain” and hurt is at the center of all addictive behaviors.

At Stillwater Behavioral Health we encourage our clients to express their pain, feel it for the first time and in doing so, the healing process has already begun.

Mission & Core Values

At every Stillwater treatment center, our goal is to guide people to greater independence and growth away from addiction. With a compassionate, yet honest, approach, our team treats every person as an individual so they can better identify—and address—the core circumstances behind drug or alcohol dependency. This attitude also carries over into our individualized treatment plans that allow clients to follow a recovery strategy that is tailored to their specific needs. 

Through treatment, Stillwater Behavioral Health clients are accepted without judgment and taught to view their own journeys without harsh self-criticism. These values enable people to look at their addiction with honesty and leave no stone unturned for more effective treatment. Eliminating judgments also encourages individuals to become empowered and pursue goals that they may not have believed possible prior to coming to a Stillwater residential treatment facility. 

While the individual approach fosters independence in recovery, we also make sure that no one ever feels alone in the process. Our counseling and therapy is designed to reinforce the concept of community so each client always feels that they have a support system to lean on. Uplifting people in this way also makes it easier for them to restore connections with friends and family after they have completed the Stillwater treatment program.

Our rehabilitation philosophy is based on providing our clients with a safe and healing atmosphere, where the opposite of addiction is connection.

We assist our clients in uncovering themselves for the first time, exploring their hurt, their fears and most importantly their undiscovered passions. For passion creates and addiction consumes.

Our compassionate staff aids in our client care and they are the front-runners in helping in client discovery. Our entire community at Stillwater Behavioral Health is on this journey to restoration together. Our staff employs the same principles to our clients that they hold for themselves, the principles of compassion, understanding, honesty and non-judgment. This is our philosophy. It is with this spirit that we inspire and nurture our clients to change their own lives, for within each individual lies the immense resources for self-discovery, understanding, change and love.
