Luxury Substance Abuse Treatment in Nevada

Addiction and substance misuse manifest and progress due to a complex relationship between biological, environmental, and psychological factors. It often begins as a response to stress, trauma, or emotional pain, but over time can develop into a progressive, chronic disorder with severe physical, psychological, and social consequences. Addiction is a diagnosable and treatable condition, and seeking help is the first step toward recovery. 

The Differents is a top-rated addiction treatment center in Nevada that provides integrated care to assist individuals in their recovery journey and find meaningful lives beyond addiction. 

Our team has firsthand knowledge of and experience with recovery, clinical expertise, and decades of experience and education on addiction and co-occurring issues, to provide a fresh perspective on addiction treatment. Many of us have personally experienced the depths of addiction and the inadequacies of the rehab industry but have emerged with renewed hope and a shared passion for assisting people in healing from addiction and substance use issues.

Why It's Important to Seek Treatment For Substance Use Disorder

Seeking treatment for addiction is crucial for several reasons.  It is progressive so can have severe physical and mental health consequences if left untreated. Prolonged substance use can damage vital organs such as the liver, heart, and brain and can exacerbate mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety.

Addiction and substance misuse can harm relationships, lead to job loss or decreased productivity, and hinder personal growth, development, and overall quality of life

Additionally, it can cause legal consequences, such as possession charges or driving under the influence. Engaging in treatment can help individuals proactively avoid legal consequences and provide the necessary tools and support to make positive changes in their lives.

Seeking treatment can help individuals regain control of their lives,  rebuild relationships, improve  overall health and wellbeing, and heal the underlying causal factors for their addictive behaviors.

There is a solution.

Why Choose Us?

The Differents is a top-rated addiction treatment center in Reno, Nevada that provides integrated care and innovative approaches using emerging technology to assist individuals in finding meaningful lives beyond addiction.

Treatment Approaches At The Differents

We embrace a wide range of evidence-based modalities proven effective in treating addiction and co-occurring disorders, combined with a holistic approach. In addition to teaching strategies to manage triggers and cravings and raise awareness of relapse warning signs, we also address underlying causal factors for addictive behaviors.

Holistic Therapies & Relapse Prevention

We assist individuals in developing positive thoughts, techniques for increased frustration tolerance, self-awareness, and reduction of reactionary behaviors, and healthy lifestyle practices in all eight wellness dimensions (emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT aims to identify and change self-defeating and maladaptive thoughts and behaviors that have contributed to addictive patterns, while teaching coping skills to develop new patterns and lead a healthy life. This is an evidence-based method proven effective in treating addiction and other co-occurring disorders, such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

ACT increases psychological flexibility: the ability to adapt to and accept life challenges, difficult emotions, and stressors, while learning to live fully in the present and remaining true to one’s core values. ACT is proven efficacious in reducing anxiety, substance use, depression, and physical pain. Positive outcomes have also been shown for the Veterans population with PTSD.

Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT fosters resilience through cultivating mindfulness, distress tolerance skills, emotional regulation, behavior analysis, and interpersonal effectiveness strategies. Research has demonstrated efficacy for DBT in treating substance misuse, treatment-resistant depression, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation. 

Motivational Interviewing

This technique utilizes what personally motivates the individual to change in positive, adaptive ways. MI enhances motivation to adapt healthily in recovery, builds confidence that change is possible (self-efficacy), and raises awareness of the undesirable consequences associated with remaining in addictive patterns. Your core values and goals are incorporated into your treatment plan to bolster your commitment to create lasting change.

Strengths-Based Approach

This is a holistic approach to therapy, emphasizing one’s personal strengths, self-determination, self-efficacy, and community support. It assists with recognition that every group and individual have assets and resources, and that adversity and trauma can serve as sources of opportunity, resilience-building, and increased understanding.


Acquiring knowledge of how addiction and mental health issues develop, environmentally and neurobiologically, can increase understanding of how to fully engage in a holistic recovery, and can help with shame reduction. The complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors involved in the development and progression of addiction are explicated with understanding that addiction is not a choice. Therefore, there is no place for blame or judgment. The structure and function of the brain are altered by addiction, and our evidence-based therapeutic modalities offer tools to rewire the brain to promote new neural pathways.

Mindfulness, Yoga & Meditation

We offer mindfulness practices to help individuals increase self-awareness, reduce stress, improve physical and mental health, and live more consciously through breath connection, sensory, somatic, and grounding techniques, and alternative therapies such as yoga and meditation.

Art Therapy

Art therapy provides a creative outlet for self-expression to explore one’s feelings and experiences. It can be particularly beneficial for individuals who struggle to verbalize their emotions.

Nutrition & Wellness

We recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle in recovery. Our licensed nutritionist offers nutritional counseling, education, and personalized nutrition plans. The Differents offers a fitness facility, hiking trails, basketball court, and yoga classes to enhance physical fitness.
