Understanding Treatment Modalities

different-treatment-modalities

 

Psychological therapy is the foundation of most treatment. Treatment centers offer a range of psychological therapy treatment methods to help each client find the best way to heal in the way that works best for them. Traditional talk therapy, or psychotherapy, doesn’t work for everyone. Offering various kinds of therapy sessions helps clients get more out of their experience in therapy. Therapy methods can include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Narrative therapy
  • Quantum therapy
  • Reality therapy
  • Inner child therapy

All of these therapy types focus on discovering the underlying issues which contribute to addictive behaviors and the manifestations of mental illness. By working with individual and group therapists, a client continues to gain insight on what makes them who they are, their beliefs, and how their actions as well as thought processes reflect that information.

 

Creative Therapy

 

Creative arts therapy, or expressive arts therapy, is a type of therapy which uses different creative methods for helping clients find new ways to express themselves. Talking and language sometimes falls short of the full experience of human emotions that clients need to discover within themselves. Creative arts therapy offers a safe space for exploration which clients may not otherwise be able to access. Creative arts therapy and expressive arts therapy can include:

  • Art therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Drama therapy
  • Film therapy
  • Performance therapy

 

Holistic Therapy

 

Holistic healing is increasingly being used in treatment to mirror the approach to treating addiction in mind, body, and spirit. From healing touch therapies to energetic therapies and spiritual practices, the holistic therapy modality helps round out the treatment experience, helping clients heal physically and create meaning spiritually. Holistic therapy can include:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • Chiropractic
  • Reiki
  • Energy healing
  • Crystal work
  • Breathwork
  • Chakra work

 

Experiential Learning/Life Skills Development

 

Learning to live in recovery means more than learning to live without drugs and alcohol, or without certain behaviors. It means developing an entirely new way of approaching life in every area of life. Many people who enter treatment haven’t fully transitioned into the responsibilities of taking care of themselves or others. Experiential learning and life skills development helps clients learn everything they need to successfully live life and take care of themselves, which can include:

  • Diet
  • Nutrition
  • Cooking
  • Budgeting
  • Grocery shopping
  • Home care
  • Resume building
  • Interviewing skills
  • Job management
  • Time management
  • Stress management
  • Adventure therapy
  • Nature therapy
  • Volunteer and service work
