    Inova Mount Vernon Hospital‘s Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual.

    Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy aims to identify the core issues that would have led the patient to substance abuse and address the root cause effectively. Patients find the therapist as a person who they can trust. It helps them to open up and discuss personal and sensitive issues, which they may not be comfortable discussing in a group.

    Family Counseling + Treatment

    Family therapy is a set of therapeutic approaches that assumes that the entire family is a system. It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. It helps to repair relationships and improve communication between family members.

    Group therapy happens at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in a controlled group environment, as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It supports Alexandria, VA patients’ recovery by offering a sense of comfort and letting them know that they are not alone. Through shared conversations, patients also learn to develop faith and understanding and gain insight on their addictions.

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma therapy refers to treatment wherein specialist therapists help the patients to resolve the trauma that led the patients to substance abuse. The trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. Thinking of these traumatic events causes emotional disturbances like anxiety, depression and results in addiction. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed. Otherwise, there is a risk of relapse. Trauma therapy also improves the cognitive functions and provides long term benefits.

    Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) sees a person suffering from substance addiction to have illogical reasoning, counterproductive actions, and does not see things clearly. Due to this, REBT deals with cognition, images, and behavior extensively to rectify the client’s bad habits. REBT pushes an individual to become more reasonable and choose a life without the repercussions of addictions.

    Patients at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, VA learn how to self-soothe by conducting rational self-counseling. REBT provides their patients with the skill sets necessary in handling problems all by themselves, without seeking professional help. The process calls for practice, reiteration, and bolstering the new way of thinking being introduced to the patient.

    Contingency management is a way to help motivate someone to remain substance free. It is a process of rewarding positive choices and good outcomes. As humans we are wired to recreate experiences that lead to positive feelings. Through this method incentives are used for completing positive steps towards a sober life. This may be a reward for attending meetings, remaining sober or for employment goals.
