Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a method of psychotherapy designed to help addicts and alcoholics overcome detrimental and self-defeating behaviors by changing their behavioral patterns and learning healthy coping mechanisms. We offer DBT as part of our comprehensive therapeutic program.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of psychotherapy during which unhealthy behaviors are challenged and ultimately changed. Our team of licensed and experienced therapists works with each individual client to change coping strategies from ones of self-destruction to ones that are both efficient and effective.
Medication assisted treatment – For some clients we utilize medication assisted treatment (MAT) to help combat cravings and reduce relapse. Some medications we use include Suboxone, Vivitrol and Antabuse.
Family therapy and additional services for the immediate family – Addiction doesn’t just affect the addict or the alcoholic, it deeply affects the mental and emotional well-being of the entire family. We believe that in order for someone to truly heal and maintain sobriety, their family must heal simultaneously. For this reason, we offer family therapy sessions on a regular basis as well as continued support for the close family members of the patient.
Life skills training – Addiction strips people of basic life skills – those in the throes of addiction can no longer financially support themselves, show up when and where they are needed or participate in basic adult requirements like cooking and cleaning. We work to re-instill basic life skills in all of our patients so that they quickly become self-sufficient and productive members of society.
Recovery program involvement – Recovery program involvement is a critical component of every aftercare plan. There are many recovery programs to consider, including 12-Step, Celebrate Recovery, Rational Recovery and Smart Recovery. Our IOP encourages clients to attend daily meetings and get active in the recovery community of their choosing.
Relapse prevention therapy – In order to prevent relapse and maintain sobriety for years to come, a very specific set of coping mechanisms and relapse prevention tools must be in place. We do all we can to teach our patients relapse prevention strategies so that they consistently feel strong and capable in their recovery.
