    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this Fort Yukon, AK Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    No single treatment works for all addicts; therefore, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to find what works best for each individual. Some people requiring addiction treatment may only need a few weeks of inpatient care. Others will require long-term residential care. Tolerance and withdrawal levels vary from person to person and thus affect the intensity of the treatment needed.

    If an individualized approach to treatment and therapy is not offered, addicts may fail to reap benefits from their efforts. Professionals must customize plans according to their patient’s needs, limitations, and strengths. The goal of all forms of addiction treatment should be for addicts to find healthy ways to cope with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy for drug addiction is a unique form of therapy that allows family members to work through the emotional issues of their loved one’s addiction together. Family members can support each other while learning how to cope with the addiction and encourage healthy changes.

    Accordingly, couples therapy for drug addiction is designed for an addict and their significant other or spouse. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship and how to break the negative patterns of behavior that may have developed.

    Drug addiction can destroy a person’s life, as well as their family and friends. The loss of one’s ability to choose how to live and behave often leads the addict into depression, anger, guilt, and many emotional problems.

    Family Counseling

    The therapies usually include siblings, children, and parents who are involved in their daily lives. These sessions are vital because they address past issues that may have hampered an addict’s or alcoholic’s recovery and provide support at a crucial time!

    One of the most critical aspects of family therapy is helping addicts’ loved ones see their situation in a new light. It’s also one of the most challenging things a family can do when a loved one struggles with addiction or alcoholism.

    Group therapy is held in a safe, controlled setting where patients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and gaining perspective through shared conversations. It takes place in a group rather than one on one to prevent feelings of isolation or being unique in their situation while creating an environment for addicts at Council of Athabascan Tribal Government to develop fellowship, accountability, and support. Group therapy is an important tool in recovery that prevents cravings that prompt a return to active addiction.

    This type of therapy involves the use of a variety of therapeutic techniques to help addicts recover from past traumas that might have triggered their substance abuse. During these sessions, therapists will work with the addict to address painful memories and learn how to cope effectively with stressors as they arise.

    During these types of sessions, therapists will typically focus on three main goals:

    1. Identifying and expressing painful emotions associated with past traumas.
    2. Reducing the effects of stress on an addict’s life by developing more effective coping mechanisms.
    3. Developing healthy ways of thinking about stressful situations that can help addicts avoid substance abuse issues in the future.

    This type of therapy is typically used in conjunction with other types of addiction treatment services. By identifying and dealing with the root cause of addiction, most addicts can overcome their cravings and prevent relapse once they leave rehab.

    Experiential Therapy at Council of Athabascan Tribal Government

    Experiential Therapy is used by drug treatment facilities to treat substance abuse. This treatment is clinically proven to help addicts in detoxification by allowing them to release emotions in a safe environment. The treatment process involves addicts painting their feelings and releasing them on a canvas.

    One of the most popular forms of experiential therapy is known as LPE – Love, Peace, and Equilibrium. Amy Gumowitz developed this treatment in 1992. By implementing her philosophy of “reality therapy” into the treatment, Gumowitz’s results were outstanding. Once her success was validated by those she had been helping, she decided to open her treatment center. Although Gumowitz passed away in 2007, her contribution to the addiction recovery remains effective, and better yet, it is 100% self-sufficient.
