Therapies & Programs

Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.

Family therapy is a type of group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the patient, their family, and sometimes friends. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate with each other differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using.

The family can learn to reduce their enabling behavior or rally together and support each other during tough times. The patient also learns how to deal with their addiction and maintain sobriety while interacting with the family.

Trauma Therapy is a form of therapy that involves working with a patient to help them process and understand the past trauma(s) in their life. The idea behind it is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories of the event get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event.

With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and how they can change how they think and react to things. This therapy is typically done using techniques such as visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings.

Trauma therapists will work with clients to help them understand their past and present relationships. Many times, patients may believe that something is inherently wrong with them or that they are unworthy of love. A therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.

One of the main goals of trauma therapy is to help clients express their emotions and talk about what they are feeling. This benefits both to increase awareness of how certain events have impacted them in the past and enables patients to realize that they can make changes in their lives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that helps addicts balance their thoughts and emotions to change their behavior. It was designed for those vulnerable to self-harm and suicidal thoughts and aims to help patients understand the connection between their feelings, emotions, and behaviors. It is effective for those whose addictions and behaviors stem from severe mental health issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used by drug treatment centers to help addicts comprehend the causes of their substance abuse and the consequences that follow. Through CBT, clients learn to recognize and avoid high-risk situations and cope with challenging situations when they arise.

CBT treatment often includes a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, lectures, and other activities. The treatment’s goal is to help addicts gain self-control and maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol over the long term so that an addict can get sober and lead a more productive life.

CBT is particularly effective in helping people overcome their drug problems, especially people whose drug abuse is motivated by self-defeating beliefs and emotions.
