Types of Addiction Therapy Services We May Recommend

We provide a variety of in-house substance abuse treatment programs. These may include evidence-based co-occurring individual and group counseling services such as:

Skills development groups

Those seeking substance abuse help often require new coping skills for managing real-life situations impacting substance misuse. Our skills development groups provide positive peer support and discussions on how to avoid triggers, control urges, and prevent relapse, as well as problem-solving, stress reduction, and anger management techniques.

12 step programs

In this program, you’ll go on a spiritual journey of acceptance and surrender to (your own) higher power. A series of actions from Alcoholics Anonymous inspire you to attain a mental, emotional, and spiritual shift in perception. Interpersonal connections, including sponsor and peer relationships, play a central role.

Seeking safety

Seeking safety therapy provides those who’ve suffered trauma, PTSD, and substance abuse techniques for coping with the past without reliving emotionally distressing life experiences. It offers a broad array of safe coping skills, helping people bridge the connection between trauma and addiction.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT helps those struggling with addiction to identify moods, thoughts, and situations that drive the desire to abuse alcohol and drugs. Learning to avoid these triggers and replace negative thoughts and actions with healthy ones paves the way for addiction recovery success.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

A modified form of CBT designed for individuals with emotional regulation challenges and self-destructive behavior. It imparts skills that help those with substance use disorders live in the moment, manage intense emotions, cope with stress, and improve relationships.
