Therapies & Programs

Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.

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. The two will work with a therapist to learn how the addiction affects themselves and the relationship.

Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.

Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.

During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.

Many people struggling with drug addiction have experienced some form of trauma in their lives. It is crucial that these individuals seek out professional help; otherwise, their drug abuse and addiction will likely continue.

Therapists and counselors at drug treatment centers employ several treatment programs to help people struggling with drug addiction, including trauma therapy. Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them.

It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the problem of addiction in the first place and may cause a relapse. Negative feelings are common in drug abuse disorders, but they can lead to co-occurring disorders if not recognized. CBT involves strategies that help to change the behavior pattern by restructuring negative thoughts into positive ones. It helps to remove these feelings, and it provides long-term benefits. Also, CBT promotes self-awareness and self-control. It can be administered as a monotherapy or as part of combination therapy.

CBT can improve the patient’s mood, reduce drug cravings and boost success rates on treatment plans. Regular practice can help individuals handle negative attitudes, thoughts, and feelings without turning to drugs or alcohol. The core belief of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is that one’s moods, behaviors, and actions are all connected. Individuals can improve their quality of life using CBT. It helps addicts understand the patterns of thought and feelings that cause them to use drugs or alcohol and develop a healthy response.
