Therapies to Help You Build Healthy Coping Skills
Therapy is the foundation of addiction treatment. Thus, if you plan to attend alcohol rehab, you should prepare for multiple addiction therapy sessions. At San Antonio Recovery Center, we provide a broad range of therapeutic options to help you or a loved one struggling with alcohol addiction. These approaches include evidence-based, clinical modalities administered by certified professionals and medical staff and holistic treatments to improve the mind, body, and spirit. Every client is different, so a combination of various therapeutic approaches offers the best chance of a successful recovery. We offer proven, effective therapies administered by caring, professional personnel with a treatment plan designed specifically for each client.
Clinical Therapeutic Offerings
Here are a few examples of our clinical therapeutic offerings:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
Counselors conduct behavioral therapy in a one-on-one environment. CBT focuses on regulating emotions and changing problematic thoughts and responses related to drinking and situations that involve drinking. EMDR helps patients confront distressing or traumatic thoughts and images and then redirect their feelings and emotions until they can control their responses to the stimulus. MAT involves the administration of FDA-approved medications, most often during detox, to help with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.
Family therapy focuses on repairing damaged relationships within the family dynamic. Having a supportive family greatly enhances chances of successful recovery; however, there may be lingering resentment or anger that must be addressed. By understanding the needs of the client and setting healthy boundaries, families can heal together. Group therapy shows patients they are not alone in their struggles. Having a supportive group of individuals who have gone through the same thing promotes accountability and develops communication skills.
Holistic Recovery Options
An evidence-based approach to alcohol addiction recovery includes therapy, medical support, and proven treatments. However, there are many alternative and holistic therapies that make a difference as well.
At San Antonio Recovery Center, our methods include:
- Yoga therapy
- Fitness therapy
- Meditation therapy and spiritual development
- Nutritional therapy
- Experiential therapy
How do these holistic therapies help our patients heal? Alcohol addiction can make it difficult to take care of yourself. However, physical activity can provide a healthy outlet for stress and can help you rebuild your strength. Healing in mind, body, and spirit is also essential for long-term recovery, and these holistic therapies can help you connect with your emotions in a healthy way.
