    Couples Therapy at Alternatives In Psychological Consultation

    Substance abuse does a number on an individual’s relationship with other people, particularly in marriage. Spousal relationships bear the brunt of alcohol and drug dependence. Therefore, it becomes critical to submit the relationship to couples therapy to prevent straining it further. Most programs only zero in on the individual with substance addiction without factoring in the importance of the other half’s emotional support.

    However, some facilities, like Alternatives In Psychological Consultation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, offer couples therapy options to manage intimate partnerships amid the recovery process. Other couples-focused treatment plans can provide the patient and their partner tools to get things back to normal, support each other, and the patient’s sobriety.

    Family Counseling + Treatment

    Addiction is a family disease. Family therapy aims to heal and rebalance unhealthy roles and habits. Healing any family trauma and dysfunctional communications is important, and Alternatives In Psychological Consultation understands this. Family sessions are meant to bring Wisconsin families closer together and live sober, healthy, lives.

    Group Therapy is a type of counseling that occurs between a bunch of strangers. These groups are suitable for patients who are not confined in a treatment facility, but group sessions are also common in inpatient rehab programs. Group therapy is led by a trained individual at Alternatives In Psychological Consultation in Milwaukee, WI and consists of members from different stages of recovery.

    The goal of group therapy sessions is to foster hope and a sense of belonging, share information, and learn coping mechanisms. It also helps to have people who can relate to what you’re going through. Good behaviors can also be contagious, and participants can learn from one another.

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a method of specific counseling that replaces negative and self-limiting thoughts with positive and productive behaviors. Self-defeating thoughts and habits can limit your possible successes. Some examples of this are procrastination, unhealthy eating and angry outbursts. You may not be aware that some unhealthy behaviors and thoughts are sabotaging your potential accomplishments.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of reliable psychotherapy that treats trauma or injury. Usually, the therapist moves his or her fingers back and forth under a bar of light. The patient undergoes various eye movements and bilateral stimulation (BLS) techniques that place them under REM sleep. This helps the brain remember traumatic incidents.

    EMDR reduces the intensity of the traumatic event and makes the patient achieve a state of tranquility. The main goal of EMDR is to treat trauma by identifying problems in the memories and addressing the links connecting traumatic memories. It also helps reduce negative emotions and bodily tensions brought on by suppressed or repressed trauma. The therapist provides solutions that can urge the patient to move forward.
