Introduction and Basic Services

The mountainous central Wyoming city of Casper, is home to Wyoming Recovery; a 12-step based substance abuse treatment facility. Wyoming Recovery provides adult clients with residential and outpatient co-occurring and chemical dependency care. Treatment is holistic and considers the mind, body and spirit of the person by incorprating a communicative support community.

Facility and Meals

The residential campus in the heart of Casper, the second largest city in Wyoming, offers converted homes that serve up to 15 clients during their treatment. The houses are comfortable and cozy, with shared bedrooms and bathrooms in each. Each of the facilities are gender-specific, and offer the same amenities one would find in their own home, like living rooms with a TV and Netflix, and on-site washer and dryer.

These residences are within walking distance to the Wyoming Medical Center, which has a cafeteria. Wyoming Recovery arranges for clients to enjoy three meals daily at the cafeteria, where they have access to an array of food choices.

Treatment Protocol and Team

There are a variety of holistic approaches in conjunction with 12-step programming integrated into every step of treatment at Wyoming Recovery. Those who are in need of detox have two levels of care available. One is under the supervision of of full medical staff at the nearby Wyoming Medical Center, the other can take place in the residential facility and provided by an RN.

After detox, clients attend several group sessions daily that focus on relapse prevention, anger management, step work and psychoeducation. Clients work closely with their counselors to create treatment goals and follow up in individual sessions and in a Group Goals daily meeting. CBT, Stages of Change and EMDR are commonly used in treatment. There is also a strong spiritual element to the programming at Wyoming Recovery. A Spiritual Care specialist visits clients weekly to discuss grief, loss and aid in any spiritual guidance the clients may need during treatment. There are also regular AA and NA meetings on-site.

Individual sessions take place at least twice a week, and clients with a dual diagnosis have frequent visits to discuss medication management and adjust dosages if needed.

A common step down from the residential stage is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which is an eight-week program that picks up where inpatient leaves off. There is also a required minimum of three AA meetings per week. A family program is an integral part of treatment at Wyoming Recovery. During the residential stage there are weekly Family Days that last for about six hours. The outpatient program offers a Wednesday evening group counseling session, and couples counseling as needed. An aftercare track meets weekly groups for six months to a year.

Staff consists of a medical director, who is an MD as well as Master’s-level LCSWs, LMFTs, LACs and psychiatric techs.

Bonus Amenities

Holistic care includes massage therapy and acupuncture and clients have the opportunity to work out at the Casper Rec Center up to three times per week.


The structured treatment programming combined with spiritual guidance and holistic elements make Wyoming Recovery a strong choice for substance abuse treatment in the midwest. Those seeking a comfortable retreat to get sober, regardless of where they came from and their backgrounds, can rediscover themselves at Wyoming Recovery.
