Evo's Program

Evo provides an intensive alternative treatment program designed to offer the highest level of individualized care. The program takes a no judgment, collaborative approach designed to support clients to set goals that make sense for their lives and pursue positive change. Learn more about how Evo’s treatment differs from traditional rehab programs.

Evo believes that integrating care into clients’ regular lives leads to long-term success. The program's structure allows clients to participate without disrupting their family or work lives. This integration allows clients to tackle addiction within the real context of their everyday lives. Read more about Evo’s approach.

Evo’s program combines individual and group sessions that center around three components:

  • Therapy - Therapists work collaboratively with clients to transform internal narratives and open up new possibilities— around substances, problematic behaviors, and beyond.

  • Somatics - Somatic work is a holistic therapeutic approach that addresses the relationship between the mind and body. This provides new tools for clients to manage flight or fight responses.

  • Engagement - Clients receive one-on-one sessions to help them take practical steps to bring meaning into their everyday lives.

Therapy

Core to Evo’s program is respect. Therapists work collaboratively with each client to identify the best outcomes for the client’s life, in relationship to substances, their relationships, work or school, and beyond. The goal is to address underlying trauma and open up new possibilities.

We see language and stories as powerful tools for creating meaning. Stories help people make sense of their experiences and form the backdrop of their relationships—with themselves, with others, and with the world. At Evo, therapists work with clients to help transform narratives that no longer serve them, and identify ones that help them live their best lives.

We believe that clients already possess the inherent ability to respond effectively to the difficulties they face. Therapists work side-by-side with clients to help them to hone these skills for positive change.

Evo’s program includes individual, group, and family/friends sessions. The purpose is to build a community of peers and loved ones to support clients in their journey.

Evo’s therapeutic model draws from the latest research and thinking on root causes and solutions to addiction. Learn more about the research behind Evo’s model.

Somatics

Evo sees working with the body as an integral part of overcoming addiction. Somatic work is a holistic therapeutic approach that addresses the relationship between the mind and body.

For clients who often look to substances to physically alter the way they feel, somatic work can help develop new understandings of the relationship between oneself and the body. It is not unusual for clients struggling with addiction to have experienced trauma that can trigger physical and emotional reactions. As clients redefine their relationship to substances, they need new tools to manage automatic fight or flight responses. Somatic therapy helps clients pause, regulate their bodies, and begin to feel more comfortable in their own skin.

Unlike many programs, somatic practitioners are an integral part of the clinical team, creating an important feedback loop between therapy and bodywork.

Somatic program elements include: somatic therapy, bodywork, nutrition, mindfulness, movement, integrative psychiatry, and more.

Engagement

Evo provides one-on-one sessions to support clients’ engagement in the world and bring purpose and meaning into their everyday lives.

Addiction often brings with it instability and added challenges in everyday endeavors such as career, health, or finances. Through engagement sessions, clients receive guidance to make concrete changes to regain stability in their lives. Depending on their needs, clients receive support to connect or reconnect with work and school, obtain health or legal services, cultivate community, or anything else they need.

Purpose can be a powerful antidote to addiction. Through therapy, clients do the introspective work to identify goals that connect them with the things they care about most. Clients’ goals might relate to their values, spirituality, passions, and/or something else. Engagement sessions provide practical coaching for clients to identify opportunities and make changes to bring them closer to these goals.
