    Therapies & Programs

    At Bennington School , to learn from past mistakes and improve one’s situation, the recovering person meets individually with a therapist. The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.

    Couples therapy sessions are typically used to help couples in recovery from drug addiction work through their issues. These types of sessions can be beneficial for many reasons, including the fact that they add a layer of accountability when both partners in a couple are recovering from addiction.

    Therapy can also provide addicts with another effective way to cope with stress and avoid relapse during difficult situations. This type of therapy can help improve communication with their partners, which can strengthen the relationship and prevent future problems that might lead to relapse.

    Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse. They can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track.

    In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.

    Many people suffer childhood traumas that lead to adult addiction. During treatment at Bennington School [/type], you can move forward in your recovery and reclaim your sober future! Trauma is a common cause of psychological disorders like Addiction Disorder. It’s common in Addictive Disorders patients because traumatized people have strong emotions or thoughts that lead to addictive behaviors.

    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy created in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was designed to help people with high rates of suicidal behavior.

    The goal of DBT is to teach mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness to help people learn how to live a life that is no longer controlled by overwhelming emotions and urges.

    DBT is beneficial in treating drug addiction because it helps patients understand and cope with their cravings for drugs or alcohol rather than turning to those substances as a way of coping.

    Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children.

    Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain. Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

    The goal of nicotine replacement therapy is to provide a safe alternative for people trying to quit smoking. It does this by giving small doses of nicotine that help manage cravings while breaking habits associated with cigarettes.

    Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRTC) uses products like skin patches and gum that deliver low-dose nicotine, which prevents cravings in those quitting. This makes it easier for them to make a gradual transition from smoker to non-smoker.

    Patient Experience

    Experiential Therapy at Bennington School

    Experiential Therapy is a different way of thinking about addiction treatment. It uses physical activities to help work through troubling emotions, memories, and trauma that are sources of psychological issues like addiction.

The non-traditional approach helps people deal more effectively with these struggles. It also allows them to gain new perspectives on their behavior patterns by recreating experiences in healthy ways rather than continuing old habits that may no longer serve them.
