To give you an idea of the various therapies clients receive during their alcohol rehab or drug rehab stay, here are a few of the clinically proven methods used by trained, licensed professionals:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: A results orientated form of counseling. Effective in treating a wide range of mental health issues, from depression, to eating disorders, to substance abuse. This treatment is focused on the here and now. Clients are encouraged to question and examine recurring thoughts. Through objective, thoughtful analysis, recurring negative thoughts are proven to be false and are therefore phased out.Learn more.
- Didactic Group Therapy: This classroom-like treatment seeks to explain to clients the nature of their drug addiction or alcoholism. Understanding a problem is essential to effectively combating it, especially when it comes to the vicious cycle of substance abuse. Supportive group sessions may feature visual aides such as slideshows or videos, with clients learning the real consequences of untreated addiction. Sessions are low-key and not emotionally intense, and may focus on teaching particular skills important to a successful recovery, such as relapse prevention. Learn more.
- Hypnotherapy: The real hypnosis therapy is different than what’s seen on television and in movies. Clients are always in control of their thoughts or actions, though they do indeed enter a “trance-like” state of mind. Nevertheless, clients remain alert throughout the process — in fact, hyper-alertness is a characteristic of the hypnosis state. This therapy increases the ability of recovering addicts to adopt new patterns of behavior, with one medical study finding “the deep relaxation naturally addresses the recovering person’s need to manage stress and handle cravings.” Learn more.
- Motivational Interviewing: Friends and family members are quite familiar with trying to “talk sense” into the addict, but this confrontational approach rarely works. Instead, the addict may become resentful or angry instead of recognizing that he or she needs substance abuse help. Motivational interviewing is a different way of encouraging addicts to get clean — a nonjudgmental counseling method in which treatment options are discussed in a back-and-forth manner. Studies of this method have found it to consistently outperform traditional methods of giving advice. In motivational interviewing, addicts actively contribute ideas and possible solutions regarding their care. Learn more.
- Organized Recreational Therapy: Using activities such as painting, playing games and picnics, this treatment teaches clients and their families to reconnect with each other through shared, fun activities. The proven, positive effects of this therapy include decreased social anxiety, stress relief and strengthened social bonds for the client. Learn more.
