We offer a well-rounded program with a variety of services. Trauma therapy utilizes experiential therapies to encourage patients to participate fully 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. Patients also work on individual assignments that promote self-discovery and empowerment. The deeper one goes to address the root cause, the more successful the healing from trauma and substance abuse.
When individuals dig deep during experiential therapies, they might relive those traumas or feel a sense of shame, guilt, sadness or anger. Patients often need help processing their emotions, memories and traumas effectively. Beachway is fully prepared for these natural, healthy responses to therapy, with both clinical and therapeutic support.
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.
