Our Addiction Therapy Programs in Mississippi
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) helps patients practice controlled thinking. The goal of CBT is to prepare the patient for responding to challenging situations and negative thought patterns. Some of CBT’s practices may have the patient confronting their thinking patterns, discussing their experiences, and working through their feelings. This therapy can also help those who are struggling with co-occurring mental health disorders.
CBT is a step-by-step process—while every patient is different, all issues are usually not resolved with the patient’s first session of CBT. The duration of CBT can last from five sessions to 20 sessions.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on validation and accepting uncomfortable thoughts, as opposed to struggling with them. DBT attempts to find the medium between acceptance and change. If the patient accepts their troubling thoughts and behaviors, then they can see that change is possible.
DBT has four main areas of concentration:
- Mindfulness – The practice of being fully present and aware of one’s surroundings
- Distress tolerance – Practicing how to accept stressful situations, as opposed to changing them
- Interpersonal effectiveness – Communicating more effectively about wants, needs, and boundaries
- Emotional regulation – Keeping emotions in check by changing the emotions the patient wants to change and reducing the vulnerability of emotional pain
DBT is a powerful therapy for addiction treatment as it can help with emotional growth, can reduce cravings, and can help to identify behaviors that are harmful to your sobriety.
Family therapy is beneficial because it can help mend relationships. Family counseling can help families resolve conflict in a better, more effective way. It can also help families communicate more effectively.
Group therapy is a core component of our addiction treatment plans because it can help patients discuss their addiction amongst others while also helping the patient understand that they are not alone. There are others with the same struggles, and those are people to lean on for support.
This can also help patients grow communication skills as well because it’s in a group setting. Patients can share success stories together, possibly giving them more motivation to keep succeeding.
Individual substance use counseling sessions help patients explore their condition as well as learn to live without drugs or alcohol. Patients will work with a substance use counselor or licensed therapist in sessions that generally last about an hour. These sessions may take place several times a week depending on how often the therapist and patient agree to meet. Typically, patients will work with the same drug rehab counselor or therapist throughout their program to build trust and rapport.
Motivational interviewing is a research-proven method that affords us the opportunity to better get to know our patients. Through a conversation with an experienced therapist, patients can come to a better understanding of the mindsets, behaviors, and patterns that are linked to their substance use in a compassionate, non-invasive and non-confrontational way. We will delve into the psychosocial aspects of addiction, determining how drug or alcohol use can alter every aspect of life.
Relapse Prevention Program
We do not want our connection with our patients to end when they leave. Remembering that they are not alone and have someone to turn to for help can play an important role in maintaining recovery. One way we do this is through a relapse prevention program.
This includes an extensive and compassionate weekly therapy program that utilizes both group and individual sessions. This is also when patients might would be enrolled in DBT.
