    Substance abuse includes all problems that stem out from using various psychoactive substances.

    Alcoholism Treatment at Pathway Counseling Services

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment

    Opioid addiction involves addiction to legal or illegal opioids. It may happen very quickly with any opioid use. Sometimes within a matter of days. Opioid addiction is a known as a high-risk factor for future heroin addiction.

    Opioid withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and lead the user to continue to use even if they want to quit. Stopping using an opioid requires careful medical observation. Sometimes the withdrawal can persist for many weeks, which can put the user at a high risk for relapse.

    It is recommended to receive inpatient treatment and a medically supervised detox like those offered at Pathway Counseling Services in West Chester, PA, PA, to manage the withdrawal process while learning lasting tools to maintain recovery.

Talking through issues with professionals at Pathway Counseling Services can identify sources of discomfort or unhealthy thoughts. It is a way of learning about yourself and your individual perceptions. CBT is a healthy way of addressing some behaviors which may be bringing unintended consequences in your life.

    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.

    Group Counseling

    Group therapy happens at Pathway Counseling Services in a controlled group environment, as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It supports West Chester, PA 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.

    Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT)

    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 Pathway Counseling Services in West Chester, PA 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.

    Trauma Therapy

    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.

    Contingency Management / Motivational Incentives

    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.
