Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Denver, CO Facility.
Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.
Couples therapy at AB Counseling focuses on addiction treatment for the addict and their spouse. The addict’s family, not just the addict, can benefit from this form of therapy. Couples therapy addresses communication problems, trust issues, lack of intimacy, and abuse in intimate relationships. Couples therapy can help rebuild trust between partners, which increases the chances for successful treatment and sustained recovery.
Intimate relationships can be damaged during addiction, and professional help may be necessary to rebuild the often destroyed trust and love. Couples therapy at AB Counseling helps couples improve communication and rebuild trust. Either or both partners will be helped by this treatment administered by professionals. This treatment can also help one or both partners if addiction is the problem.
Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.
(REBT) was developed by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955. The therapy is based on the premise that our beliefs lead to and maintain our emotions and behaviors. Therefore, if a person has irrational thoughts, they will have an unhealthy emotional life. And as long as those irrational beliefs remain unchanged, they will continue to have unhealthy emotions and behaviors.
REBT is a purely psychological therapy, meaning it does not incorporate the use of medications or supplements. Instead, REBT focuses on helping people understand, respect, and accept their feelings without judgment, enabling them to have more control over their actions and behaviors.
The therapeutic process is straightforward: clients learn to identify the irrational beliefs that cause distress, challenge good coping statements, and replace them with healthy, rational beliefs.
