Our Philosophy at Valley Vista

Valley Vista is a 91-bed inpatient addiction treatment program for adult men and women suffering from substance use disorder often complicated by co-occurring mental health conditions. Each gender-specific program utilizes a patient-centered approach where individualized comprehensive treatment plans are customized to meet a patient’s unique needs. Valley Vista recognizes that one size does not fit all making use of multiple evidence-based therapeutic modalities including health realization, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Seeking Safety, Smart Recovery, and 12-Step Programming. Humility, accountability and acceptance underscore the work we do and service we provide to those seeking a life of enduring recovery. Substance use disorder does not discriminate and neither does Valley Vista; each patient is treated with respect, dignity, anonymity and validation in an intimate, safe and secure therapeutic environment. With two beautiful Vermont locations, in Bradford and Vergennes, Valley Vista offers recovery from addiction in humble and tranquil settings.
