Cognitive Behavioral TherapyThe addiction specialists at The Ridge combine 12-step programs with CBT in order to help patients understand and accept they have an addiction, they must learn to manage, rationally, in a focused, deliberate manner. Cognitive behavioral therapy enables clients to recognize patterns of drug and alcohol abuse, and equips them with the knowledge and power to avoid relapse during aftercare.
Recreation and NutritionWhile achieving sobriety is the clients’ first priority, it’s essential they regain health and wellness. A healthy body feels more comfortable, energetic, and balanced, contributing to the continuance of a sober lifestyle. The Ridge helps achieve this thru a balanced program of nutrition and exercise. We also have recreational activities outside of the ridge that allow clients to have fun again without using.
Meet the Staff
- Dr. Marc WhitsettOur LeaderDr. Marc Whitsett, M.D., a board certified addictionologist, leads The Ridge’s experienced team of physicians, nurses and chemical dependency counselors. He continues the legacy started by Dr. Jeffrey Stuckert, M.D., of educating our clients about the disease of drug and alcohol addiction and helping clients learn the tools to manage it. His experience in emergency and occupational medicine gives him a strong a foundation in the medical effects of the disease. He is experienced in detox, residential and outpatient treatment and is a researcher exploring various treatment methods. Whitsett was a Clinical Investigator for Phase II FDA trials to get naltrexone (ReVia) approved for use in alcohol dependence. Since addiction still has no known cause, Dr. Whitsett passionately continues to try to find the cause, or as he says “the nugget”. Board certified by the American Boards of Internal and Addiction Medicine, Dr. Whitsett earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati.
