What Types of Therapy Can Help Me in My Recovery?

What Types of Therapy Can Help Me in My Recovery?

When you were in the throes of addiction, nearly every aspect of your life was taken over, including your mental, physical, social, behavioral, and emotional health. This is why it’s important that you methodically put the pieces back together when you’re in recovery through different therapies.

At Tres Vistas Recovery, Dr. Daniel Headrick and our team place great value in a multi-pronged approach to recovery so that you have the tools you need to plug back into the world. 

While therapies such as medication-assisted treatments and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) IV therapy can play valuable frontline roles in your physical health, we also believe that addressing your mental and spiritual health is equally as important.

Here’s a look at a few of the more successful therapies we offer for people in recovery.

Individual therapy

One-on-one support in recovery is important as we attempt to identify those issues that may have caused or exacerbated your substance use disorder. Once we have a better idea of your overall mental and behavioral health, we can try more specific therapies, such as:

Cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy 

These therapies include techniques that help you identify and change problematic behavioral and thought patterns.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

If you’ve experienced trauma or emotional distress that contributed to your substance use disorder, we turn to EMDR to help you better process the events.

By tailoring your therapy to your unique needs, we can provide you with the individualized support you need to take back charge of your life.

Group therapy

When you enter recovery, the odds are good that you’ve removed yourself from your old world and you’re feeling awfully alone. Through group therapy, you can reconnect with like-minded people who have a unique understanding of everything you’ve been through. 

Group therapy can be special group counseling sessions here at Tres Vistas or 12-step support groups. By finding new connections in recovery, you not only receive support, but there’s also a degree of accountability that can keep you on the right track.

Family therapy

When you develop a substance use disorder, your family is often directly involved, which is where family therapy can be helpful. By sitting down with family members, you can heal together and find healthy boundaries that will help you all move forward.

Alternative therapies

As we’ve discussed, we believe that there are many approaches to easing your road to recovery, including alternative therapies that include:

Each of these therapies is designed to help quiet your mind so that you can be present in the world around you.
