Many therapies address addiction and mental health issues simultaneously. While these options vary by treatment facility and your unique needs, at Lighthouse Recovery Institute, our comprehensive and personalized treatment programs adapt to you.
Different therapies may include psychotherapy, talk therapy, substance abuse counseling, behavioral therapies, group therapy, and other interventions.
Some options for addiction therapy include:
- Individual therapy – In individual therapy, a patient works one-on-one with a licensed professional in private sessions to acquire self-knowledge, insight into their addiction, and coping skills for their maladaptive behaviors.
- Group therapy – Group therapy gives people in recovery the opportunity to learn new coping techniques, practice their communication skills, and gain hope and strength from their peers.
- Family therapy – Family therapy aims to encourage understanding and collaboration among family members to solve the issues within the system and enhance communication, trust, and honesty.
- Trauma resolution therapy – One of the leading underlying causes of addiction is trauma, so trauma resolution therapy helps people to heal from trauma and learn coping skills for the future.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – One of the most popular types of behavioral therapies for dual diagnosis treatment is cognitive-behavioral therapy. This therapy offers individuals various ways to recover from their addiction and manage their mental health disorders.
- Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) – This form of behavioral health therapy focuses on encouraging patients to accept themselves and start making changes to live a healthier and more meaningful lifestyle.
- Rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) – This form of therapy addresses specific events and teaches people that their beliefs about a specific event trigger their reactions.
- Cognitive therapies These are a subtype of CBT, and the idea is to help modify someone’s emotions, behaviors, and beliefs.
- Motivational interviewing – Motivational interviewing is often included in treatment plans of people struggling with dual diagnoses. It involves a form of talk therapy in which the therapist shows empathy while affecting change in the person’s negative behaviors.
- Psychodynamic therapy – This therapy relies on the subconscious to change someone’s behavior. While the efficacy of this form of treatment is questionable, it’s sometimes used to treat mental disorders as it teaches people how to express emotions healthily.
- Schema therapy – Schema therapy is a common form of psychotherapy used to treat personality disorders. It helps people understand why they developed schemas and how they can affect their decisions and behaviors and teach them how to manage these schemas.
