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 personalize treatment programs adapt to you.
Different therapies may include psychotherapy, known as talk therapy, substance abuse counseling, behavioral therapies, group therapy, and other forms of interventions.
Some common treatment modalities for mental health and addiction usually include:
- Psychiatric interventions: individual, group, or family psychotherapy sessions.
- Behavioral therapy: cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, interpersonal therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
- Somatic treatments: medical interventions, medical detox, and medication-assisted treatment.
In individual therapy, a patient works with a licensed professional in private sessions to acquire self-knowledge, insight into their addiction, and coping skills for their maladaptive behaviors.
The session objectives can frequently change throughout treatment. They can shift focus to various clinical topics to include the patient’s process in addiction treatment, personal obstacles to recovery, interactions with family outside of addiction treatment, cravings, new coping skills, and goals.
The frequency of therapy depends on the patient’s needs. Individual therapy can also help address unique mental health conditions that can’t be treated as part of a group environment.
Family counseling plays a vital role in the success of the patient’s long-term success from drug or alcohol addiction turmoil.
Providing support enables the therapist to assess the family system and all the unique issues the family has experienced. The purpose is to assist the family as well as the patient to understand the disease of addiction.
Family therapy aims to encourage understanding and collaboration among family members to solve the issues within the system and enhance communication, trust, and honesty.
Couples therapy can help repair strained relationships between partners.
The majority of men and women who suffer from substance use dependency also have a co-occurring psychological disorder, such as depression or anxiety. Upon arrival at our drug rehab facility, each patient will meet with the on-staff psychiatrist, who will carefully evaluate him or her for any potential underlying dual diagnosis disorders.
Each patient will be reevaluated several times throughout their stay and treated for any professionally diagnosed disorders concurrently.
We must treat substance dependency and any co-occurring disorders simultaneously – this will ensure comprehensive, thorough, and long-term healing.
The ability to honestly and authentically open up in a group setting is a necessary component of lifelong addiction recovery. Even after drug rehab, recovering addicts and alcoholics will find the clear majority of their support within a group.
Not only does group therapy foster the ability to relate to one another, but it helps facilitate the supporting, nurturing, and genuine relationships amongst members that will prove essential down the line for accountability.
Group therapy gives recovering addicts the opportunity to learn new coping techniques, practice their communication skills, and gain hope and strength from their peers.
Trauma Resolution Therapy
Over the past several decades, addiction treatment has emphasized the role of previous traumatic experiences in the psychological fitness and behavioral patterns of individuals suffering from substance dependency and alcoholism.
Somewhere around 85% of all individuals seeking addiction treatment have suffered some form of sexual, physical, or emotional trauma in their lifetimes. Individuals with sexual abuse are 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol and 26 times more likely to abuse drugs than those who were not.
The connection between trauma and addiction requires simultaneous treatment options.
Relapse Prevention Treatment
Almost sixty percent of people relapse after completing a substance abuse treatment program. However, most of the time, this happens because individuals return to toxic or unhealthy environments.
Relapse prevention gives patients the tools they need to manage triggers and emotions.
Not to mention, it provides a safe space for continuum care, support, and life-long development. Most patients benefit from relapse prevention programs and move on to live clean and sober lives.
Since the 1960s behavioral therapies were part of mental health treatments to treat emotional, behavioral, and cognitive symptoms. These therapies help address:
- Automatic thoughts
- Distortions in thinking
- Underlying beliefs
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
One of the most popular types of behavioral therapies for dual diagnosis treatment. 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 involves helping someone pursue a better life. It focuses on encouraging patients to accept themselves and start making changes to live a healthier and meaningful lifestyle.
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
This form of therapy addresses specific events. It teaches people to understand that events don’t cause behaviors or emotions, instead, it’s their beliefs about a specific event that triggers their reactions.
These are a subtype of CBT. Treatment centers use them to treat a person’s mental illness. The idea is to help modify someone’s emotions, behaviors, and beliefs:
- Unhealthy emotions
- Erratic behaviors
- False beliefs
It 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.
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.
A common form of psychotherapy used to treat personality disorders. It helps people understand why they developed schemas and how they can be affecting their decisions and behaviors. The goal is to teach them how to manage these schemas.

Our comprehensive treatment center focuses on treating substance use disorders and mental health in inpatient and outpatient care settings. If you or someone you love is struggling with drug abuse, our treatment facility can be the best place to go to seek help and start your journey to recovery.
One of the first therapies our patients receive is a psychiatric evaluation. Mental illness and addiction go hand in hand. We’ll discuss mental disorders and try to understand if there are any co-occurring disorders happening. We’ll either continue current medications, make adjustments, or start a medication-assisted treatment as you get ready for treatment.
We believe that evidence-based treatment is the best way to address substance use disorders. Our levels of care incorporate different therapy modalities that are adapted to meet your needs. After your initial psychiatric evaluation, our therapists will recommend a set of psychotherapy sessions to promote progress in your recovery journey.
Our holistic approach to treatment incorporates access to wellness education and activities to enrich your recovery journey. We believe incorporating healthy habits as part of your rehab journey will help you continue practicing these in early recovery to promote long-term sobriety. Mindfulness, spirituality, exercise, and healthy eating are all part of recovery.
