Our strength at U.S. Addiction is for one that we include and incorporate multiple different modalities and techniques into our treatment approach. We are not a cookie cutter approach nor do we believe that one size fits all when it comes to addiction treatment. We believe that, because everyone who is struggling with drug and alcohol addiction is a totally different and totally unique person, a combination of multiple different rehab techniques and approaches will be necessary to effect true change and complete sobriety that lasts a lifetime.
When an addict approaches the prospect of beating addiction once and for all, he or she cannot just do so with one approach to treatment. This has been the failing of addiction rehabilitation programs in the past; not utilizing several different rehabilitative techniques and methodologies when rehabilitating clients. We have made sure to make this a key aspect of our program and have utilized every single approach to addiction treatment that is significantly useful and very beneficial. Our modalities have been tested, examined, surveyed, studied, reviewed, and found to be the best, hand-picked types of approaches to addiction treatment that are in use today. A list of them has been included below with a brief description of each:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This is the first and perhaps the best approach to addiction treatment out there today. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is all about getting down to the underlying issues and the key areas of distress and struggle that any person is feeling as a result of addiction. Every addict has something that is inherently causing them to be addicted, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is perfect for finding and addressing that issue.
- Moral Recognition Therapy. Addicts can tend to be very immoral people. However, it is not in the nature of almost anyone to be immoral. Immorality is something that comes from addiction, and Moral Recognition Therapy addresses just that. With Moral Recognition Therapy, clients are able to look at their responsibility as individual adults and see just what types of effects their actions have created on a grander scale of things. This is very helpful for beating addiction.
- Motivational Interviewing. Motivational Interviewing is all about positively. This highly beneficial and very energetic approach to addiction treatment is all about getting down to the bottom of addiction by finding positive and pleasant reasons to not abuse drugs and alcohol. Motivational Interviewing is about looking on the bright side and always viewing the cup half full.
- Traditional 12 Step. Perhaps the oldest of all treatment methods, no rehab program would be complete without Traditional 12 Step. This approach is not enforced at any of our treatment centers so that our clients can pursue alternatives to Traditional 12 Step if they want, but Traditional 12 Step is offered as an elective and it is strongly encouraged for its sheer efficacy throughout the years.
- Christian 12 Step. Christian 12 Step is similar to 12 Step, but whereas with a basic twelve step program which simply recognizes that there is a, “Higher Power”, at work, Christian 12 Step is very specific as to the higher power being God. The great thing about Christian 12 Step is that it gives religious and Christian addicts a chance to utilize their religion to really help them beat their addiction.
- Buddhist 12 Step. This is also similar to the Christian and Twelve Step approaches, but it is 12 Step with an Eastern inflection. Buddhist 12 Step utilizes the main tenets of a twelve step approach but it harkens to a far more spiritual, Eastern religious approach. Again, one does not have to be Buddhist or any religion to do this approach, and one does not have to pursue it at all if they don’t want to. However it is recommended for its efficacy.
- Booster Sessions. Booster Sessions are powerful, quick, very positive and very effective one on one counseling sessions that are greatly encouraged here at U.S. Addiction. Booster Sessions are able to accomplish a lot in a small about of time. Booster Sessions essentially involve a recovering addict meeting with an addictions counselor/life coach several times a week for about a half hour. The two go over life, livingness, and the pursuit of happiness and make plans for the next few days. Then the recovering addict goes out and applies those plans until the next Booster Session. Very effective, very fast, very powerful.
- Indigenous Approach. The Indigenous Approach is an age old approach that is still very useful and successful today. It is highly and very well respected too. The Indigenous Approach is a Native American approach to addiction recovery that utilizes a spiritual approach to addiction treatment that has a lot to do with striking a blow against the mental demons of addiction and substance abuse.
- Sauna Therapy. Sauna Therapy is a very holistic approach to addiction treatment that does nothing but great things and wonders for the human body. Sauna Therapy is able to rid the body of toxins and do immense help for any recovering addict. With Sauna Therapy, a person will literally sweat the chemicals and the nasty drug and alcohol toxins out through his or her pores. This is a natural way to free someone of addiction.
- One-on-One Counseling. One-on-One Counseling has a place in any rehab center and should be effectively utilized. One-on-One Counseling refers to any counseling modality that utilizes a counselor alone with an addict. One-on-One Counseling is considered to be one of the top most successful ways of eradicating addiction.
- Group Therapy. Group Therapy has endless benefits. In this technique, an addict is able to focus on and address his or her addiction issues with the help of his or her peers, and he or she is also able to assist his or her peers in focusing on their issues too.
- Physical Therapy. Immensely beneficial for anyone who has been very seriously affected by addiction, this method is stellar when it comes to fully healing the body on a long term basis. Physical Therapy has its uses in a lot of different ways and means and can put a body through its paces in a healthy way to get rid of the harmful effects of addiction.
- Acupuncture. Acupuncture is an Eastern treatment method that alleviates stress and the harmful effects of addiction and chemical dependence all at once. This technique has been utilized all across the nation and has been growing more and more popular in the United States.
- Vitamin Therapy. Most addicts struggle with vitamin deficiencies. With Vitamin Therapy, a specific nutrition plan is assigned to each client and his or her body is brought back up to speed from a chemical and health stand point.
- Whirlpool Therapy. This works similarly to Sauna Therapy. In Whirlpool Therapy, whirlpools are utilized to leach harmful chemicals out of the body.
- Massage Therapy. This method has endless uses and benefits. Bodies get seriously damaged by addiction. Massage Therapy is able to heal and recover not only the muscle tissue but the organs and nerves too.
- SMART Recovery. This is the most famous treatment method out there right now. SMART Recovery compiles many different techniques in itself and it a conglomerate of scientific and group and one-on-one-based addiction treatment.
- Life Skills. Recovering addicts need to be prepared for life after treatment. Life Skills helps them by teaching them basic tools on how to survive on their own and without help or addictive substances.
- Relapse Prevention. There will be hard times ahead. Relapse Prevention teaches addicts about relapse triggers and how to avoid them.
- Coping Strategies. Similar to Relapse Prevention, Coping Strategies teach recovering addicts how to have happy and successful lives after treatment. Giving up drugs and alcohol is a big change. Coping Strategies teach how to deal with that change.
- Anger Management. No rehab would be complete without Anger Management. Anger Management is taught because it comes up in almost all addicts. With Anger Management, recovering addicts are able to learn how to face down anger without having to turn to drugs or without having to take it out on others.
