Evidence Based Addiction Treatment Therapies

Addiction Treatment Therapies

Within treatment, patients have the opportunity to explore different kinds of therapy. As your counselor or therapist works with you, you will discover certain kinds of therapy produce more effective results than others. Some of the therapies we provide include:

Family Therapy

We value and encourage feedback and participation from families, and other supportive individuals, to maintain social connections and support. It is also an important part of recovery to work on issues within the family dynamic.

Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT)

A medication-assisted detox center provides you with relief during your detox from drugs and alcohol. Unlike a regular detox program, medication-assisted detox employs medications under a doctor’s supervision. These FDA-approved medications help manage the physical and psychological symptoms that often result from withdrawal

Yoga Therapy

Yoga has proven to be successful in our addiction therapy program. Yoga teaches you basic emotional and mental control. It is also used in conjunction with a depression or anxiety treatment program, two common triggers for relapse. You can use it to stop or reverse compulsions that cause your addiction. Many of us are overwhelmed by stress and tension. It is important to have an outlet for these painful feelings through the use of breathing exercises and yoga poses.

CBT Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been used to treat mental health and addiction disorders since the 1960s. It provides a way for people to address negative thought patterns during the recovery process. In cognitive-behavioral therapy, you learn why these thoughts occur and how to turn them around. A key component of CBT is learning that your emotions and actions stem from illogical thought patterns. They are not rational thoughts. Your thoughts stem from past experiences, how you were raised, and your current environment. When you act on these irrational feelings, you further damage your recovery process.

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is a form of trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy that helps reduce the power of traumatic memories. A trained therapist will guide you to think about a trauma while moving your eyes back and forth, left to right. Over time, this will retrain your brain to process the memories so they no longer cause as much pain.
