Intensive Recovery Workshops at Cirque Lodge

At Cirque Lodge, located in the beautiful Sundance, Utah, we provide some of the best addiction treatment services available in the country.

When you come to us for help, we carry out in-depth, comprehensive psychological tests and assessments. These tests and assessments then help us personalize your treatment meet to your specific requirements.

Once you complete a rehab program, you will have the opportunity to participate in an intensive recovery workshop. Specific problems in your life might contribute to your addiction and jeopardize your recovery, and we design these workshops to target these areas specifically.

What Are Intensive Workshops?

What Are Intensive Workshops?

Intensive recovery workshops allow clients to focus on a specific topic for a short period, typically 1 to 5 days, and the entire workshop revolves around this topic.

Relationship improvement is already an essential part of addiction treatment. However, in an intensive recovery workshop, there is a heavier focus on this aspect of treatment.

Improving relationships is only one type of intensive recovery workshop. There are many others, including grief and loss workshops, trauma workshops, and shame and resilience workshops.

At Cirque Lodge, we design our intensive recovery workshops to help you better understand and address a broad range of topics, including:

  • Shame
  • Destructive family patterns
  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Relationship issues
  • Physical, mental, behavioral, and spiritual health

Trauma, grief, shame, and relationship issues can prevent you from making real progress with your recovery and can lead to and exacerbate your addiction. Intensive recovery workshops offer you a chance to tackle these issues directly.

The specific workshop in which you participate will help you to overcome that problem area. It will ultimately provide the tools and skills necessary to support your recovery after treatment and achieve a higher quality of life.

These intensive workshops focus on critical areas of life that may be difficult for those struggling with addiction, such as:

The Importance of Recovery

The Importance of Recovery

Addiction is a complex condition. It can happen quickly and, when left untreated, can take over all areas of your life.

The Bulletin of the World Health Organization state that some characteristics of addiction include:

  • Physical dependence on drugs or alcohol
  • Intense cravings
  • Prioritizing substance use over other essential areas of life (work, school, relationships)
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you try to quit

At Cirque Lodge, we know that addiction can take over your life, and we are committed to your recovery. We understand that recovery is possible when you seek professional help. We commit to providing each client with a comprehensive, customized treatment program.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the earlier you seek treatment, the greater your chance of long-term recovery. Addiction is a progressive condition. It gets worse the longer you go without treatment and can lead to:

  • Physical and psychological health conditions
  • Job loss
  • Lost or strained relationships
  • Overdose, death

Professional treatment is crucial if you want to recover from your addiction. At Cirque Lodge, we offer:

  • Psychological testing and assessments
  • Medically supervised detox
  • Comprehensive rehabilitation
  • Aftercare support
  • Intensive recovery workshops

Many clients are successful in managing their recovery once they complete rehab. However, some clients who struggle with addiction also suffer from underlying or co-occurring mental health conditions and disorders. These include:

  • Trauma
  • Mood disorders
  • Codependency
  • Personality disorders

These issues can hinder your recovery progress, and it is crucial to address these issues in treatment.

We aim to deliver the highest quality addiction treatment services available to each client. Here at Cirque Lodge, we understand that an excellent addiction program does not just focus on your addiction symptoms. It focuses on healing your whole person.

The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs reports that holistic addiction treatment offers significant positive outcomes in treatment overall. As such, we take a holistic approach to treatment and get to know each client on a personal level. With this deep understanding, we can tailor the most appropriate treatment program for your needs.

Types of Intensive Recovery Workshops

Types of Intensive Recovery Workshops


Trauma and addiction often go hand in hand. Trauma can stem from:

  • Childhood physical or sexual abuse
  • Childhood neglect, abandonment
  • Sexual abuse
  • Witnessing death or violence
  • Motor accident
  • Exposure to a natural disaster

All types of trauma can compromise our psychological well-being. Trauma survivors often experience:

  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Distressing memories
  • Flashbacks to the event(s).

Some trauma survivors use substances to cope with these negative experiences. Using substances as a coping mechanism creates a vicious cycle of misuse that soon leads to dependence and addiction.

At Cirque Lodge, we offer intensive recovery workshops to help you process and resolve your trauma. By addressing and resolving your trauma, your chances of a successful recovery are significantly higher.

Grief and Loss

Grief and loss take a significant toll on our physical, mental, and behavioral health and well-being. Suffering from grief can be overwhelming and may lead some to engage in health-risk behavior such as substance misuse.

At Cirque Lodge, we offer comprehensive, intensive recovery workshops to help you overcome and cope with the grief and loss in your life.

Improving Relationships

Addiction can jeopardize all of your relationships, including your professional, familial, and romantic relationships. They can sometimes hinder your recovery, especially if your partner or family member also struggles with addiction or enables your addiction.

In our intensive recovery workshops, you can learn how to improve your relationships by creating safe and healthy boundaries for yourself. We also develop trust and authentic communication skills to help you connect with others honestly.

Benefits of Intensive Recovery Workshops

Benefits of Intensive Recovery Workshops

Our intensive recovery workshops take a holistic approach to your recovery.  Often addiction has an underlying cause such as trauma – it is not just about drug abuse.

Intensive recovery workshops help you address these underlying health issues, such as trauma, grief, poor emotional regulation, or codependency. To successfully recover from addiction, it is crucial to address the issues that created the addiction in the first place.

The benefits of intensive recovery workshops include:

  • Improved communication
  • Improved intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Greater psychoeducation
  • Focused healing

Our holistic approach to healing means that we guide you through your recovery journey’s physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Many people underestimate the importance of spiritual health. You do not need to follow any religious or spiritual ideology to benefit from spiritual health care.

Spirituality in addiction recovery concerns your relationship with yourself and your deeply held beliefs. Strengthening your health with a holistic approach gives you the best chance of successfully managing your recovery journey.
