Judy’s Retreat is a premier dual diagnosis, alcohol and drug treatment home. We can provide comprehensive treatment programs specifically designed for your needs. Dual diagnosis can be difficult to identify, since the symptoms of one of the disorders often mimics the symptoms of another disorder. Improper diagnosis and insufficient dual diagnosis treatment leads to poor outcome. And for this very reason, many people do not receive the kind of help that will put them on the right track. Disorders such as depression, anxiety and bipolar combined with alcoholism and drug addiction will create this dilemma. Often a mental health condition occurs first, however most people try to “self-medicate” with drugs and alcohol in order to feel normal but not realizing that this may lead to chemical or drug dependency.

Mindfulness is a significant element within the integrated holistic approach used at Boulder Addictions Counseling. Stemming from 30 years of promising research in the field of meditation and addiction, Boulder Addictions Counseling offers methods of mindfulness when facing addiction, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction program, called Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP). Mindfulness can help people with addictions gain nonjudgmental, present-moment awareness in order to become more attuned to their triggers, cravings, and urges, which will in turn help break the cycle of their addictive patterns.
