Our substance abuse therapy services aim to help those who are in recovery from substance abuse or alcohol addiction. At Insight, we understand that everyone is unique, and we approach our therapy treatments with that in mind. No one should have to go through recovery from substance abuse alone. Our team has the patience and expertise to help get you on the right path to living a sober, healthy life.
What Is Substance Abuse Therapy?
Substance abuse therapy is therapy specifically tailored to our patients who are recovering from a substance abuse addiction. Overcoming addiction is worth fighting for, and our team is determined to draft a therapy treatment plan to aid patients in their recovery journey. We employ many substance abuse therapy types, such as:
Behavioral therapy is an umbrella term to describe any method that aims to change self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors in a patient. With behavioral therapies, there is a heavy emphasis on present or current issues, and how to change them. An example of a behavioral therapy that we offer is cognitive behavioral therapy, in which we teach our patients to one’s destructive tendencies and rectify them to lead a healthier life.
Substance Abuse Support Groups
Support groups are extremely beneficial for those in recovery. Support groups help our patients realize that they are not alone on their journey to recovery and that with the help of others, sobriety is a long-term goal that can be accomplished. In our support groups, patients are able to share their experiences with others who are dealing with the same issues. Many patients who participate in support groups receive encouragement and hear about ways to manage their recovery.
A 12-step program is often hailed as a standard go-to in addiction recovery. 12-step programs employ the use of 12 core principles to assist people suffering from substance abuse or alcohol addiction by providing individual action steps. There are two unique features of 12-step programs, which are:
- Group Settings: The 12-steps or principles are discussed and applied in a recovery group. Patients in these groups should try to admit the problem they are facing themselves.
- Sponsorship: Patients who are newer on their recovery journey are often paired with those who are a little farther along with their sobriety. A patient’s relationship with their sponsors is an incredibly helpful and symbiotic relationship.
The Importance of Substance Abuse Therapy for Recovery
Trying to knock a substance abuse addiction is not something that should be taken lightly. Substance abuse addictions are often more than just a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol. Addictions are also heavily dependent on psychological or social factors in a patient’s life. Let us help you begin your wellness journey and live your best life.
