    12-Step Program Facilitation

    The 12-step program is a part of substance abuse treatment offered at Mountain Minds Matter. It was initially developed by the founders of Alcoholics anonymous. The program provides the benefit of cognitive restructuring. It refers to the process of change in the negative thoughts that leads to long-term benefits.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an approach and method in psychotherapy. Mountain Minds Matter asks people to investigate how their thoughts, including habitual, negative, and inaccurate ways of thinking affect behaviors. CBT is based on the idea that rigid, inflexible ways of thinking cause people to have a limited ability to cope with stress

    Couples Therapy

    Substance abuse does a number on an individual’s relationship with other people, particularly in marriage. Spousal relationships bear the brunt of alcohol and drug dependence. Therefore, it becomes critical to submit the relationship to couples therapy to prevent straining it further. Most programs only zero in on the individual with substance addiction without factoring in the importance of the other half’s emotional support.

    However, some facilities, like Mountain Minds Matter in Girdwood, AK, offer couples therapy options to manage intimate partnerships amid the recovery process. Other couples-focused treatment plans can provide the patient and their partner tools to get things back to normal, support each other, and the patient’s sobriety.

    Family Counseling + Therapy

    Addiction is a family disease. Family therapy aims to heal and rebalance unhealthy roles and habits. Healing any family trauma and dysfunctional communications is important, and Mountain Minds Matter understands this.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT)

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a method of specific counseling that replaces negative and self-limiting thoughts with positive and productive behaviors. Self-defeating thoughts and habits can limit your possible successes. Some examples of this are procrastination, unhealthy eating and angry outbursts. You may not be aware that some unhealthy behaviors and thoughts are sabotaging your potential accomplishments.

    Trauma Therapy

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed.

    Contingency Management / Motivational Incentives

    Some people refer to contingency management, or CM, as motivational incentives. This type of therapy is a reconditioning of the mind and responses of the body. The point of CM is to help the body understand the proper responses to behaviors should be, as well as the effects that come with both problematic and desired behaviors. The more positive choices a person makes, the more incentives they will receive, all managed with sobriety goals by Mountain Minds Matter in Girdwood, AK.
