    The Recovery Center‘s Therapies & Programs

    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.

    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.

    Couples therapy addresses these issues and tries to rebuild the trust between the partners. The partner’s involvement in the process will result in greater chances of treatment success and sustained recovery.

    Family therapy is a set of therapeutic approaches that assumes that the entire family is a system. It utilizes the strengths and resources of the family to help the patient refrain from resorting to substance abuse. It helps to repair relationships and improve communication between family members.

    Group therapy happens at The Recovery Center in a controlled group environment, as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It supports Cortez, CO 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.

    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.

    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.

    This treatment is developed to help individuals recognize their thought patterns, behaviors, and feelings. It has demonstrated its effectiveness for people that are finding it difficult to control their emotions and urges. Conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and borderline personality disorder also benefit from DBT as it imparts individuals stress-management techniques and enhanced self-esteem so they can sustain their sobriety by reducing the impact of triggers and out-of-control emotions.

    Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a way of addressing concerns through talking. It can be used in individual counseling sessions. Talking through issues with professionals at The Recovery Center 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.

    People who leave treatment without learning life skills from staff at The Recovery Center are at a disadvantage when it comes to maintaining sobriety. Although it is difficult to teach life skills, aftercare support helps patients develop these skills over time. Life skills taught in New Mexico include things like finding a job and a good place to live, self-care, and managing finances.
