What Types of Addiction Therapies Are There?

The ten most effective types of therapies are listed below. Coming to terms with needing treatment can be hard. Every individual will be different as to what they need to move forward or what they need to overcome. After our clinical team completes a preliminary assessment on your individual needs, we will guide you through your individualized care plan, which could include the following:

  • 12 Step Facilitation: based on the behavioral, spiritual and cognitive principles of 12-step fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
  • Trauma Informed Care: focuses on increasing adaptive resources, coping mechanisms and tools for healing in a non-threatening environment.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): a therapeutic approach shown to be effective in treating mental health issues and addictions.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills (DBT SKILLS): DBT skills are well-researched behavioral skills that help people who suffer from emotional dysregulation.
  • Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT): like CBT and DBT, guests will work with a therapist to recognize the connection between thoughts, feelings and destructive behaviors.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI): an evidence-based counseling style that helps guests resolve ambivalence to change.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): effective psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. It is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Individual Therapy: patients will receive two one-on-one therapy sessions a week. These sessions will include a high level of individualized care. Patients will work with their counselor to discuss their specific issues and how to address them.
  • Group Therapy: in addition to offering a safe space for guests to effectively learn how to honestly community care, in this type of therapy, a trained therapist will draw upon group dynamics to guide interactions that encourage self-reflection, accountability, empathy and healthy communication skills.
  • Family Program: addiction and mental health issues can affect the entire family. During this time, family members learn about the disease of addiction, signs of relapse, relapse prevention and how best to support themselves and loved ones in recovery.
