There are many treatment models that clinicians utilize in addiction counseling. In our view, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective as well as the most logical treatment modality for this disease, as it can be effective with the largest number of people within a population.
CBT is primarily focused on changing the way we think. When you have lived with substance abuse or addiction for a good part of your life, you have also developed thinking patterns, conditioned behaviors and poor coping skills that promote the cycle of use. CBT helps you identify these patterns in order to change them into healthier thoughts and more positive behaviors.
We also practice a humanistic, person-centered approach in the counseling relationship. Each client is treated with dignity and respect regardless of ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, spiritual affiliation, political beliefs or sexual orientation.
We work with you at your stage of change in recovery, rather than where we would prefer you to be. Not everyone is always 100% ready to embrace recovery at the outset of treatment, and we understand that. Our mission is to work with you wherever you are in sobriety and help you progress to a healthier, more satisfying way of living.
Substance Abuse Disorders and Addiction effect millions of people from all walk's of life. This disease does not discriminate and neither do we. We work with people from all socio-economic and cultural groups, ethnicities and sexual orientations. We strive for cultural competency and treat everyone with dignity and respect.
Achieving and maintaining sustained sobriety doesn't end with treatment. Recovery is a lifelong process that requires continuing care. We offer Continuing Care services and introduce all clients to 12-Step and other Recovery Support systems in the community for relapse prevention following completion of treatment.
