Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Ridgway, CO Facility.
Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.
Family therapy will also help families realize that the addiction is not their fault. For many years, people blamed themselves for an addict’s behavior and felt that they had done something wrong. This is not the case. Addiction is a disease, and it can strike anyone, even if their life seems fine from the outside. It can bring a lot of shame to a family when they have an addict in their midst, but if everyone is open and honest with each other, then they can help everyone stay in recovery.
Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like The Center for Mental Health - Ridgway to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.
Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions. Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them.
Training in improved life skills helps those recovering from addiction feel more capable of self-care. The Center for Mental Health - Ridgway are daily skills that give the person the tools they need to survive.
