“Our mission is to provide a unique and elevated treatment experience for individuals who are seeking recovery and mind-body healing,” says program director Britney Stearns. “We have combined five-star accommodations with world-class treatment to create a uniquely transformative experience.”

The program involves a primary therapist, a case manager, weekly meditation, yoga, nutritional education, and spa services. Somatic trauma therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and exposure therapy are just some of the available treatments available. Recovery-based groups and other interventions provide a comprehensive approach.

“At the heart of Carrara’s commitment is its cutting-edge clinical and top-notch treatment options,” says Blair Steel, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist. “The facility is proud to incorporate methodologies that have proven to incite positive and sustainable change. This diverse range of services allows Carrara to tailor its approach to the specific needs of each individual, ensuring a personalized and effective path to successful recovery.”

Beyond the clinical programming, Carrara has enlisted celebrity chef Deborah Fewell to craft a nourishing menu that not only tastes great but also supports the healing process. “We strive to provide the cleanest, organic when available, Blue Zone, macrobiotic, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free cuisine—or pretty much anything our clients would like,” says Fewell. “Everything we make is going to be healthy and made with love.”

As part of the healing journey, guests can take advantage of self-care and more. From facials and massages to acupressure and cupping to Reiki and reflexology, the treatments are all designed to enhance the therapeutic process. “The spa at Carrara will set the tone for a truly holistic luxury experience by providing highly custom and all-encompassing therapies,” says spa director Crystal Webb. “Sessions will be developed for the individual in conjunction with their overall treatment. Setting Carrara apart—experienced technicians will work together with compounded knowledge of previous treatments to truly understand each person’s needs and provide custom experiences to reach their wellness goals.”
