Therapy in Recovery
Therapy plays an essential role in the recovery from addiction. Therapy can also help to treat other mental health disorders that are sometimes co-occurring with the disease of addiction. We believe in the power of a therapeutic relationship.
It’s important to remember that addiction to drugs or alcohol is a disease of the mind as much as of the body. For some drugs, mental addiction or psychological addiction is much more powerful than physical addiction. Because of this, mental health treatment is generally required for a successful detox and recovery. Therapy – whether it’s group therapy, a 12 step program, individual therapy with a psychiatrist, outdoor therapy, or even just keeping a journal – allows the men staying at His House to take stock, assess the roots of their addiction, and get the most out of their time at our treatment facilities.
Below is a list of some of the types of therapy employed at our treatment facilities for men. Each one of these is a proven method of treating addiction and other mental health disorders:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a process by which a skilled therapist helps the client learn how to process information, think clearly, and make better decisions. CBT’s benefits include improved focus, memory retention, emotional support, and relapse prevention strategies.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy
SFBT is the therapeutic process of focusing on solutions to problems. This type of therapy does not spend a large amount of time rehashing the existing problems. The therapist aids the client in goal-setting and incorporating resolutions. This therapy is structured to be brief in nature.
This is a type of group therapy that is facilitated by a knowledgeable professional. The group leader will present a specific topic to be discussed and learned. The goal of the group is to remain focused on the topic. This is a beneficial setting for addicts. Benefits of psychoeducational groups include gaining a support network, listening to other people’s perspectives, knowledge gained about pertinent topics relating to addiction, and it is a safe environment.
Strategic Family Therapy
An addiction doesn’t just affect one individual; it affects everyone around him. Many times the family, friends, and loved ones of a person suffering from addiction need help too. Brief Strategic Family Therapy is a focused, intensive treatment plan for the families of our patients. In fewer sessions than traditional group therapy, we can help the families attain the skills and knowledge needed to avoid codependent behavior, enabling behavior, and triggers for relapse. Additionally, we can help the families accept the trouble addiction has brought and develop coping strategies.
