This research-driven therapy teaches specific eye movement strategies that reset the way a person processes distributing throughs and other mental drivers that can cause substance abuse and addiction. EMDR has proven to be effective in helping treat addiction.
REBT treats drug and alcohol dependency by reversing negative, irrational thoughts and emotions that lead to addictive behaviors. REBT is based on research that conditioned habits can be unlearned, and that includes using drugs and alcohol.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) empowers a person suffering from addiction or substance abuse to accept recovery and take control of his or her life. Based on the premise that a person’s desire to recover will ultimately determine how effective addiction treatment is, MI exercises and a collaborative process put individuals in the power seat of determining what behaviors they need to change, so they will stick with the plan.
With Solution-Focused Therapy, also referred to as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), a person facing addiction learns to focus on what he or she can do, which leads to finding solutions and making positive change more quickly than typical therapies that are based on pathology and past life events.
Neurotherapy uses real-time displays of brain activity (EEG) to teach the brain to self-regulate. Maintaining certain brainwave patterns can control mood states and behaviors, including those leading to substance abuse and addiction. Neurotherapy activates areas of the brain that need feedback to produce “normal” and healthy brainwave patterns. The treatment begins with brain-mapping to identify where the brain is misfiring and causing vulnerability to addiction, followed by tailored neurotherapy techniques to reset the brain.
