Vistas at Wyoming Behavioral Institute is a program designed for the adult who wants intensive inpatient treatment for co-occurring mental health, drug or alcohol issues, and/or pain. We can provide the medical management required for patients who are refused care in other settings because they have complicated physical health care or medication needs.

Vistas is an inpatient treatment program integrating psychiatric treatment, medical and nursing care, case management, group counseling and individual sessions. We offer balanced, flexible and individual approach to treatment. Vistas was created to help patients gain and maintain sobriety, stability and balanced total health. Vistas includes natural transitions in care with support and oversight from physicians, therapists, and nurses who specialize in mental health, addictions and pain.

Treatment at Vistas is initiated with medical and psychiatric stabilization of patients in a safe and supportive environment. When the need for detoxification is recognized, we can provide medical management with comfort and safety in mind. Once the detox process has concluded, the patient is reassessed and fully integrated into current programming.

The focus of treatment is ongoing psychiatric care linked with a strong emphasis on the recovery process. All treatment occurs within the Vistas program unit, with outings as recommended by our case management team.

Unlike some recovery facilities, we believe every patient has a choice; we do not require participation in 12-step programming, although 12-step meetings are available. Our treatment consists of psycho-educational classes, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies, mental health support and education, interactive recreational activities, family counseling and support if desired, relapse prevention, processing shame, guilt and blame and increasing the individual awareness of co-occurring disorders and substance abuse.

Vistas is the only inpatient substance abuse unit in the state and is staffed by two board certified psychiatrists. Vistas is unique because physicians are accessible 24/7. Nursing staff assure safety is at its highest standard. The therapeutic environment at Vistas helps maintain a cohesive healing space focused on healing. The program is designed to integrate a balance of healthy distraction and meaningful engagement in the process.

Our medical director has developed the Veritas method of recovery, which is about finding truth and learning to change behavior to manage stress and anxiety with adaptive responses and meaningful coping skills. The Veritas method is a program of self-discovery involving finding one's own truth. Veritas is a Dynamic Cohort Model that accommodates the reality that rehabilitation is an individual journey starting at different points on a spectrum of readiness to change. The Dynamic Cohort Model is tiered, moving through learning, participant and facilitator modes. Patients at higher levels are able to immerse themselves differently in treatment than patients who are just beginning to recover.

For those interested in the Vistas program, please call our admissions department directly. Our professional staff will assess your needs and suitability for participation in the program.

This is a voluntary program covered by many insurance plans. Please contact us if you need further assistance with insurance pre-authorization.
