We offer a well-rounded program with a variety of services. Trauma therapy utilizes experiential therapies to encourage clients to fully participate and engage in the treatment process. Therapies can include: inner-child work, psychodrama, process therapy, talk therapy and meditation. Individuals participating in trauma-informed care can expect to meet with a group throughout the week. Also, they work on individual assignments that promote self-discovery and empowerment. The deeper a client goes to address the root cause, the more successful the healing from trauma and substance abuse.
Often, when an individual digs deep during experiential therapies, he or she might relive those traumas, or feel a sense of shame, guilt, sadness or anger. Clients often need help processing their emotions, memories and traumas effectively. This is expected. Beachway is fully prepared for these natural, healthy responses to therapy. We offer the clinical and therapeutic support to ensure success.
We believe that an educational component is necessary to help heal from trauma. This educational, or factual, phase of the program helps identify areas of trauma, such as:
- What is the trauma?
- How does it manifest?
- What are the effects?
We also incorporate a process component, typically a six week program which begins after stabilization. In this phase of the program, patients meet twice a week as a group and participate in multiple one-on-one sessions with their therapist.
