Why Therapy for Addiction Treatment?

Therapy is an important component of addiction treatment and can help patients to psychologically work through their own understanding of their addiction and the impact it has on their lives and the lives of those they love. Therapy can also be helpful in teaching and establishing healthy habits and communication skills, as well as helping a patient start to rebuild their self-image in a more positive light. There are several different types of therapy and techniques that may be employed as part of a holistic and effective substance abuse treatment program, including:

  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT involves the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. MAT is effective in treating opioid use disorders (OUD) and can help some patients to sustain recovery. There are currently three drugs approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid dependence: buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone. Buprenorphine has been demonstrated to be effective and safe in combination with counseling and psychosocial support. We have all of the professionals here to help you on your journey to recovery.
  • Behavioral therapy. Behavioral therapy, often referred to as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), is one of the most common forms of therapy that’s used to help a patient undertake addiction recovery. Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. Like other forms of cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT aims to help patients identify and change negative thinking patterns and push for positive behavioral changes. DBT may be used for treating suicidal and other self-destructive behaviors. It helps patients learn skills to cope with, and change, unhealthy behaviors.
  • EMDR therapy. Several forms of therapy that engage the patient physically have been shown to be effective in treating addiction, including EMDR—Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR targets and changes how traumatic memories are stored in the brain in a manner that promotes natural healing and healthy mental processes.
  • NAD therapy. NAD is a type of therapy that is administered by a doctor for patients who are suffering from addiction. Standing for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, NAD is an active form of vitamin B, and NAD therapy involves an intravenous injection of NAD. 
  • Creativity-based therapy. In many cases, patients benefit from forms of therapy that are less structured than traditional psychotherapy. Creative-based therapy, such as engaging in art, music, or dance, can all be useful in treating addiction.
  • Family counseling. Patients who are suffering from addiction are not the only ones who are impacted by their choices. Family members are almost always significantly impacted by a loved one’s addiction and can be a vital part of their recovery. 
  • More. The above types of therapy can all be very effective, but they’re not the only therapy options available. At CNSL, our therapists will discuss a variety of options for managing your recovery and help you create a personally tailored addiction treatment plan. Keep in mind that in addition to therapy with a mental health therapist, inpatient treatment that is more immersive may also be necessary.
