Services that we offer
Anger is a powerful emotion and one that is often closely tied to addiction. Many people with behavioral or substance addictions will experience anger in many forms, both internally and externally. Anger management combined with other evidence based treatment can help patients control their emotions and evaluate situations without resorting to anger.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a commonly used type of therapy widely used in addiction treatment, rehab and recovery as a way of identifying emotional triggers that lead to substance abuse and developing methods to control them.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is often recommended as an evidence-based approach to behavior change and is often used in addiction treatment. MI is a more collaborative approach to therapy and requires patient and counselor to explore issues without advice, judgment, or a set path laid out.
The Relapse Prevention (RP) model is widely used in alcohol and drug rehab treatments. It uses CBT practises to prepare those approaching the end of rehab treatment to begin a life of sobriety without falling into old habits of substance abuse.
Substance use disorder counseling can incorporate a wide variety of therapies and and treatment models.
Many people who have experienced trauma will turn to drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism, which often leads to dependence and addiction. Receiving counseling for trauma in line with addiction treatment can help uncover the connection between them and learn to manage the emotional reactions to trauma that cause substance misuse.
12-step programs have been helping those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions for nearly 100 years. They offer a guided path toward recovery that is not based on rigidity but practice and self improvement. They can also provide a support network of people who empathise with and understand the challenges of addiction recovery.
Individual counseling involves patients speaking with a counselor or therapist about their addiction in a one-to-one setting. This type of counseling will often incorporate different forms of behavioral therapies such as CBT in order to help the patient understand their psychological relationship with substance abuse and develop techniques to manage cravings and future temptation.
Group counseling can takes place in both inpatient and outpatient settings and involves those afflicted with substances use disorders/behavioral addictions meeting to discuss their issues. This form of counseling can help create a level of empathy and understanding of others journeys with addiction, which can help to give perspective on an individual's addiction. It also helps to build a support network which helps reduce relapse and promotes positive relationships outside of substance abuse.
Family counseling for substance use disorders and behavioral addictions helps the patient repair relationships with those close to them through open dialogue around past miss doings that were caused by addiction. This helps reestablish trust and builds a support network for the patient.
Addiction can be devastating to marriages and relationships. Through counseling the addict and their loved one can explore how the addiction has affected their relationship, what needs to change for things to improve, and rebuild trust.
Outpatient treatment centers offer the same level of care as inpatient settings while also allowing the patient to be able to return home each day
IOP requires patients to attend day treatment for three hours a day, often for five days a week but declining as recovery improves.
