Counseling and Therapy for Addiction Recovery

Overcoming the disease of drug addiction or alcoholism requires a comprehensive, ongoing plan.  Look for treatment programs that are not focused solely on detox, but rather the entire recovery process.

Drug and alcohol addiction is a disease. In order to beat the disease and maintain long-term recovery, you need to take a comprehensive approach. While detoxing is a huge step, it is important to do work that explores some of the triggers that cause alcohol or drug addiction in the first place.

Different Types of Therapy For Drug Addiction

There are many different types of therapy for addiction treatment. At BrightView, we believe in focusing on a therapeutic approach that not only addresses the substance abuse problem but also considers the mental health and social support needs of individuals going through the recovery process. 

BrightView health centers are not drug rehabs. We offer outpatient treatment for alcohol abuse and drug addiction. Our intensive outpatient programs utilize medication-assisted treatment (MAT), along with both individual and group therapy. Our treatment centers take a comprehensive approach to relapse prevention while helping those fighting the disease of addiction function in society and meet their day-to-day needs and responsibilities. 

How Therapy Can Help With Drug Addiction

Research findings show that combining therapy with other treatment options is the most effective long-term substance abuse treatment. This is because there are many life factors that can lead to alcohol and drug use in the first place. These life circumstances many not necessarily go away after drug and alcohol treatment, therefore they can be the same factors that lead to relapse. There are a variety of things that can lead a person to develop drinking or drug addiction. Some common triggers include, but are not limited to:

  • Stress, especially sudden life stresses like a financial strain or family problems
  • Environmental cues, such as being in a situation where others are using drugs and alcohol or visiting a neighborhood where you used to use.
  • Social networks and spending time with friends who use drugs and alcohol regularly

At BrightView, we know that many people do not feel comfortable with the idea of support groups or group therapy, but incorporating this into your treatment plan is very important and can be highly effective. When you are able to communicate with peers who are going through similar circumstances, you begin to build a network of support. This type of network and behavior therapy helps you face the challenges involved with remaining sober and drug-free amid your life circumstances and triggers. You build life skills to deal with those situations.

Individual therapy is also important on the road to long-term recovery. Many people have co-occurring disorders either as a result of drug use, or sometimes mental illness is a factor that has lead to a pattern of self-medicating through drugs and alcohol. One-on-one counseling sessions evaluate your individual needs and also serve as a tool to continually re-evaluate where you are in the recovery process. Continuing counseling even when you are no longer taking drugs or alcohol is key to staying on top of your health.
