There are a variety of evidence-based methodologies to treating addiction. Drug treatment can include behavioral therapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or dialectical behavioral therapy), medication-assisted therapy, eye-movement desensitization reprocessing, or a combination of those therapies. The specific type of treatment or combination of treatments will vary depending on the patient’s individual diagnosis, and on what co-occurring disorders might also need to be addressed.
In individual psychotherapy, clients learn how to manage the underlying issues that may lead to their continued substance abuse and also learn individual tools to remain abstinent. Behavioral therapies can help encourage people to participate in drug treatment, offer tactics for coping with desires to use, and teach relapse prevention techniques. Behavioral therapies can also help people with their family dynamics by improving communication skills and conflict resolution.
Group therapy is also beneficial and can provide reinforcement from fellow addicts that have shared similar experiences. When appropriate for an individual’s success in our program, family therapy can be leveraged. Family therapies focus on domestic interactions that might exacerbate substance abuse or behavioral problems.
Research has shown that fitness, exercise, and nutrition, in addition to traditional treatment modalities, helps with recovery, because it boosts mood, decreases stress, and stimulates the release of endorphins that previously were only being released from drug use.
