Therapies & Programs

At Family Matters of Greater Washington , 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.

During treatment at Family Matters of Greater Washington [/type], you can move forward in your recovery and reclaim your sober future! Trauma is a common cause of psychological disorders like Addiction Disorder.

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is based on the idea that how we feel, think and act all interact together. It helps people explore their thoughts for problems (or false beliefs) that influence their mood and actions. CBT is very goal-oriented, which means that the therapist and patient work together on a specific problem. In addition to helping a client focus on thoughts that can be changed, CBT also allows them to take an active role in their treatment. Our thoughts determine our feelings and behaviors; our feelings affect our thoughts, and our behaviors change our thoughts and feelings.
