- Medication-Assisted Therapies
- Mindfulness & Stress Management Practices
- Recreational, Art & Adventure Therapies
- Family Therapy & Support
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) integrates concepts from behavior therapy, acceptance and mindfulness and puts an emphasis on making changes to the way you do things, not just the way you think.
DBT is a proven psychotherapy treatment, which teaches clients how to observe impulsive urges and regulate their emotional reactions. It has also been shown to ease symptoms of complex conditions, like borderline personality disorder, drug and alcohol addiction, traumatic brain injuries and major depressive disorder.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) gives individuals the tools they need to correct negative thinking patterns, sometimes referred to as cognitive distortions. CBT teaches individuals how to visualize their substance cravings and mentally detach from the experience, so they can face their emotions head-on without restoring to substance abuse.
CBT is a well-established and research-based intervention for treating drug and alcohol addiction. Applying CBT, individuals can learn to challenge obsessive, automatic thought patterns about drug and alcohol abuse. Multiple studies have shown that the elements of CBT are durable, enabling clients to continue to use them even after completing treatment.
Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented intervention that helps individuals overcome resistance or empathy towards change. This non-confrontational approach helps individuals explore their readiness to change, and consider what will happen if they choose to do nothing.
Motivational interviewing was first introduced in the 1980s and more than 200 clinical trials have provided evidence that it is an effective addiction treatment option. Motivational interviewing works to build an individuals confidence in their desire to improve themselves, as a dedicated mental health specialist asks open-ended questions.
Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT)
Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) includes the use of medications to reduce cravings, ease withdrawal symptoms and block or minimize the effects of the addictive substance.
Some examples of medical-assisted therapies include, low-dose buprenorphine or methadone maintenance for opioid addiction, Naltrexone to treat alcohol dependence and opioid addiction and Topiramate to help individuals with alcohol use disorders. MAT is an effective way to treat addiction, especially when combined with behavioral therapy.
Mindfulness & Stress Management Practices
Mindfulness & Stress Management Practices include meditation, yoga and other breathing or physical activities.
It’s a common occurrence for someone dealing with a substance use disorder, or mental health disorder to misuse drugs or alcohol to deal with stress, and other negative emotions. Mindfulness and other stress management techniques can help to better manage stress levels and teach individuals how to remain in control in high-stress situations.
While it may not be enough in its own to treat addiction, when paired with other treatment options, mindfulness and stress management can help achieve a long-term and healthy recovery.
Recreational, Art & Adventure Therapies
Recreational, Art & Adventure Therapies can play an important role in addiction treatment, because they can show individuals that there’s more to life than substance abuse.
Recreational, art and adventure therapies can help individuals have a little fun and regain a sense of control over their lives. Someone suffering from dual diagnosis may benefit from more recreational, art or wilderness therapies, as they can help take their mind off negative feelings and habits.
Family Therapy & Support
Family Therapy & Support is when loved-ones and family members are invited to participate in the recovery process, with the consent of the person being treated.
Family Therapy can provide families the opportunity to heal and develop tools to talk openly about the changes that need to take place during recovery. Having a strong support network to lean on while going through the recovery process, has been shown to increase the chances of long-term recovery.
Other Services Offered At Addiction Campuses’ Facilities
Each one of our four facilities offers a unique experience. The following are just some of the services offered through Addiction Campuses:
- intervention assistance
- clinical addiction assessments
- medically-supervised detoxification
- residential/inpatient treatment
- outpatient treatment
- ongoing recovery care
- Christian drug rehab
We also recognize that mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and trauma can often co-occur with drug and alcohol addiction. Someone recovering from substance abuse may also be dealing with liver disease or HIV. Theses dual diagnosis are considered when your treatment plan is developed, to ensure the best chance at a successful recovery.
What Makes Addiction Campuses Different?
Unlike many traditional treatment facilities that can seem clinical and cold, Addiction Campuses strives to maintain a warm, inviting environment that provides various amenities and treatment solutions for successful and long-last addiction recovery.
We believe that to fully heal from the struggles of addiction, individuals must participate wholly in the recovery process. Our facilities are designed to meet the addicted individual on every level, physically, mentally and spiritually. We provide adventures for our clients while also giving them a safe and supportive environment.
Addiction Campuses also works to treat more than just substance use disorders by teaching our clients important life skills they may have lost track of during active addiction. We have specific programs that are designed to re-acclimate individuals going through addiction recovery, so that they can get back to living a balanced and productive life.
