Psychotherapy for Substance Abuse
At Recovery Without Walls, we believe in an integrated approach to help you overcome addiction and address chronic pain. Our unique healing methods include psychotherapy.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is also known as talk therapy. At Recovery Without Walls, we use psychotherapy to help you understand your feelings and emotions, particularly as they relate to addiction or chronic pain. Our expert team has found that psychotherapy can eliminate or control troubling symptoms so you can function better and increase your healing.
Benefits of Addiction Counseling
Most people see significant results from psychotherapy, particularly when combined with other approaches such as medication to treat chronic pain and addiction. Psychotherapy has been shown to improve emotions and behaviors and to be linked with positive changes in the brain and body.
At Recovery Without Walls, psychotherapy is used in combination with medication for your improved health and well-being. For many people, combined medication and psychotherapy treatment is better than either alone. Healthy lifestyle improvements, such as good nutrition, regular exercise, and adequate sleep, are also important in supporting recovery and overall wellness.
Working with a Drug Therapist
Psychotherapy can be provided in a variety of types. In addition to family and group therapy, the types of psychotherapy that have proven effective include:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT will help you understand and change how your thoughts and behaviors can affect the way you feel and act. This type of psychotherapy is particularly helpful as an integrated treatment approach to chronic pain.
Interpersonal therapy. Under this approach, you will learn new ways to communicate or express your feelings. It can help with building and maintaining healthy relationships.
Psychodynamic therapy. During psychodynamic therapy, you will address the ways in which past experiences, such as those during childhood, can impact your current thoughts and behaviors. You may be unaware that this influence is even present.
Our therapies may be supplemented with pharmacological interventions. For example, those suffering from treatment-resistant depression may benefit from ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. Research shows that this medication may help individuals who are stuck in a cycle of mental illness and substance abuse to “get unstuck” and begin anew.
