Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Winter Park, FL Facility.
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.
This type of therapy can help addicts get in touch with their emotions without feeling overwhelmed by them. It also allows the addict to develop strategies for coping with negative feelings that might trigger cravings or lead to relapse.
During these sessions, addicts will learn how to recognize and manage their cravings while developing an action plan for dealing with stress and other triggers. Combining the coping strategies learned in these sessions with ongoing therapy can help addicts lead a stable and healthy lifestyle that is free from addiction.
These types of therapy sessions provide several benefits to people dealing with addiction. By providing a safe environment for addicts to discuss their feelings, therapists can identify the issues that trigger cravings and work with addicts to develop strategies for avoiding relapse.
Medical nutrition therapy for addiction helps patients at La Amistad - Adult Program avoid “trigger” foods. Someone who craves alcohol may be sugar addicted. Eating a balanced diet with adequate protein, vegetables, and fruit can help reduce drinking urges.
MNT is a type of addiction treatment that teaches patients about healthy eating habits while counseling them. These sessions include meal planning, cooking demonstrations, shopping tips, grocery store tours, and food education.

Experiential Therapy at La Amistad - Adult Program
Drug addiction causes the formation of abnormal connections between neurons in the brain to form due to repeated exposure to drugs. These connections are responsible for addictive behaviors to drugs. Experiential therapy is done with patients individually and is different from traditional talk therapy. This therapy can help people revisit past traumas, heal, and move on in life in a more authentic way.
Experiential therapy uses activities to recreate experiences that may have caused trauma or negative emotions. These activities include role-playing, arts and crafts, animal care, music, or rock climbing. The individual will gradually experience calmness and love and change their perception positively through this therapy. Other than drug addiction, experiential therapy can be helpful for behavioral or eating disorders.
