You’re not what’s happened to you

Milestones gives you a sanctuary—a place to get to the root of what ails you. Come rest and restore and find a new way of living.
- This is a sacred space for me. Lots of magic happened here. Milestones has saved my life. I have a new lease on life that was not there before.
- I immediately felt like, ‘ this is where I’m supposed to be.’ And I just went for it. I was in the space where whatever would need to come out could come out. I found that profoundly powerful.
- At Milestones, you’re in a cocoon of healing. And there is a time when you outgrow that. And you go away. But in a way it’s not gone forever. You carry a piece of it with you.
- If you are having any doubts about heading to Milestones, whether you are in your 20’s or your 60’s, just go. You will not regret it and, in fact, it will probably change your life. I have no idea which path I would walk down had I continued in the same direction as before my stay at Milestones. Now I know the path is in a healthy direction, and that is thanks to the work of every staff member at Milestones.
- I lived for years, trying to survive, trying not to end my life. It was that dark—I was in that deep of a crisis mode. I didn’t know how to move forward, and I think a lot of people believe that life isn’t possible after tragedy. I lived that way for many, many years. I still grapple with a lot of that, and I have to continue to work on it. But Milestones set the foundation and literally saved my life and put me on that path.

Let’s do the work, together
Experiential therapy may be used to treat everything from everyday struggles to trauma to grief and loss; it is also regularly used as a component of substance abuse treatment. A fundamental premise of experiential therapy is that one’s perception determines one’s behavior. By harnessing various types of creative expression to re-experience and release negative emotions, the client may experience positive feelings such as love, forgiveness, and calm in the present. Examples of experiential therapy include animal-assisted therapy, play therapy, art therapy, music therapy, drama therapy, and wilderness therapy.
Psychodrama is a type of experiential therapy in which the client creates and performs scenes based on a past life event that caused or continues to cause distress. Re-enacting these situations in a safe space allows the client to process and let go of negative emotions triggered by the event, as well as develop more adaptive ways of responding to similar situations in the future. Psychodrama offers a creative way for an individual or group to explore and solve personal problems and gain insight into their lives.
Group psychotherapy or group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together as a group. The term refers to any form of psychotherapy when delivered in a group format, but it is usually applied to psychodynamic group therapy where the group context and group process is explicitly utilized as a mechanism of change by developing, exploring and examining interpersonal relationships within the group.
