Intensive outpatient programs and partial hospitalization programs can be helpful, but residential rehabilitation is usually one of the most successful treatment approaches. When you stay in a residential treatment center instead of receiving outpatient care, you have the opportunity to follow a structured program in a supportive environment.
You’ll meet other people struggling with substance abuse issues and learn from their experiences as you work toward your own recovery, improving your chances of success. Virtue Recovery Center offers several types of therapy to help you on your recovery journey.
Individual therapy is one of the most effective treatment options for patients with substance use issues. In one-on-one sessions with an experienced therapist, you’ll be able to explore the underlying causes of your substance use disorder. Your therapist will also help you change your negative thought patterns, giving you a new outlook that can help you abstain from drug and alcohol use when you finish your treatment program.
A drug or alcohol use disorder can damage your relationships with family members by changing the way you behave. People who struggle with drug or alcohol abuse often experience sudden mood changes or have trouble controlling their tempers. Addiction also causes some people to feel ashamed of their behavior, leading them to avoid family members in favor of spending time alone.
When you stay at our luxury rehab facility, you’ll have the opportunity to invite approved family members to attend therapy sessions with you. A trained therapist will act as a facilitator, helping you work through your family issues without resorting to personal attacks against each other. Your therapist can help you understand how your behavior has affected your parents, siblings, spouse or children, making it possible to mend broken relationships and strengthen your personal support system.
Group therapy is an important aspect of our Arizona rehab program. While individual therapy gives you an opportunity to work through your personal issues, group therapy gives you the chance to connect with other people who understand what you’re going through. Listening to and learning from others can help you achieve lasting recovery and reduce your risk of relapse.
At our Arizona rehab center, we also use EMDR therapy to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. During an EMDR session, you and your therapist will focus on helping your brain heal from past trauma.
Although EMDR is a type of psychotherapy, it’s different from behavioral therapies that focus on changing your behavior or replacing negative thought patterns with positive ones. The main goal of EMDR therapy is to prevent the fight, flight or freeze response from occurring when you think about a distressing event.
