Multi-Therapeutic Approach Options to Substance Abuse

The staff at Addict’s Helpline utilizes a variety of treatment options which are proven effective under many circumstances. In addition to traditional therapy and holistic treatments, clients are taught necessary behavioral modifications to maintain a sober lifestyle.

Core Processing Group Therapy

Group therapy promotes community and fosters an environment of shared identify, understanding and acceptance. In addition, interpersonal, family, and social struggles are addressed, as well as communication and relationship skills.

Therapeutic Assignments

A qualified therapist prescribes assignments on an ongoing basis. The purpose of these assignments are to address the needs identified in the goals of the treatment plan.

Individual Therapy

During this time, clients are able to discuss anything and everything that is on their minds. It is a time to embrace individual development and exploration of issues with a primary therapist.

This is the one-on-one time for the client. He or she is allowed to express whatever thoughts or feelings he or she is experiencing. Individual insight, development, and exploration are facilitated with the primary therapist.

Experiential/Arts

These are activities which help develop leisure and relaxation skills apart from substance abuse. They also provide a way of expressing feelings in an alternate manner. Such activities focus on goal-directed thinking, problem-solving, and memory recall. One of the goals is to help the client identify future health activities that can take the place of the addiction.

Psycho-Educational Groups

This intervention is designed to instruct clients about their addictions and mental health conditions. They will also learn how to manage symptoms, behaviors, and the consequences of their actions.

A specialist facilitates a group environment, and focuses on a topic personal to one of more of the individual members. Videos, handouts, and other materials are used to enhance the experience. These sessions can improve self-awareness and help the clients gain a better understanding of addiction and recovery. Clients also can increase their ability to identify opportunities for personal improvement/growth and positive resources. They will ultimately build confidence in their ability to make positive choices for themselves.

Substance Abuse Therapy is Essential for Long-Term Recovery

In order for those in treatment to continue recovery after treatment, addiction rehab is necessary. These therapeutic techniques provide support, education, healthy activities, and behavioral enhancement, so that individuals in recovery can learn how to efficiently cope with addiction triggers. By learning healthy alternatives and focusing on self-improvement, long-term recovery will be a success, as long as they are continuing to evolve in a healthy way as their recovery strengthens.

The techniques used in this multi-therapeutic approach are meant to ensure that clients have the tools to continue recovery after treatment. The education and activities provided teach clients how to deal with addiction triggers, identify healthy alternatives, and focus on long-term success.
