Individual and group therapy are crucial for those hoping to overcome addiction. Substance use disorder often occurs alongside conditions like depression, anxiety, and trauma. Addressing these underlying factors helps clients build resiliency and prepare for a lifetime of sobriety. Here’s what addiction therapy looks like in our practice.

Therapy for Addiction Treatment

Chemical dependency isn’t a moral failure—it’s a chronic disease that has nothing to do with willpower. Addiction is worsened by adverse events like traumatic incidents, ongoing abuse, and mental disorders. To begin unraveling the harmful patterns contributing to substance use, professional therapeutic intervention is required.

At Pillars Recovery, our addiction therapy specialists understand that no two clients are alike. As such, we offer fully customized treatment plans tailored to each person’s needs. Our counselors begin by thoroughly assessing the client upon admission. This provides the medical history and personal information needed to determine which therapies will be most effective. All clients participate in a combination of individual and group therapy sessions, along with judgment-free support groups.

Evidence-Based Addiction Therapy Practices

All therapies used at Pillars Recovery are approved by the Joint Commission and other accrediting bodies. This means that they are evidence-based: rooted in decades of peer-reviewed psychological research and demonstrated positive outcomes.

Our addiction therapy team draws from a wide array of modalities, including:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Experiential therapy
  • Holistic treatment
  • Contingency management
  • Motivational interviewing (MI)
