Samaritan Health and Living Center‘s Therapies & Programs

Couples therapy is an approach wherein the patients and their partners are engaged together as a part of the treatment process. When a person becomes a victim of substance abuse, it affects the patient and the people around him, particularly his partner. Their relationship can become strained due to lack of communication, financial issues, loss of trust, lack of intimacy, and physical abuse in more severe cases.

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.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an improved version of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). DBT is a treatment of choice for people suffering from self-harming behaviors characterized by cutting and suicidal thoughts or inclinations.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) sees a person suffering from substance addiction to have illogical reasoning, counterproductive actions, and does not see things clearly.

REBT pushes an individual to become more reasonable and choose a life without the repercussions of addictions.
