Therapy

Our Approach

Typically incorporated into addiction recovery and mental health programs, therapy promotes healing for a wide range of conditions.

Considered to be one of the most important tools to help clients secure a long-term recovery, here at Empowered Recovery Clinic, we have a wealth of therapy options to suit each individual.

Whether you require individual therapy, group therapy, or experiential therapy, our team of therapists and clinical social workers are on hand to support you.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy refers to a range of therapeutic practices that are effective in changing maladaptive behavior. Some forms of behavioral therapy include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – CBT helps identify pessimistic thoughts behind negative actions and focuses on how to change them.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) – A form of CBT, DBT also helps people manage their emotions. DBT can additionally be employed to improve relationships.
  • Exposure therapy – Used to treat anxiety and phobias, exposure therapy puts people in front of their fears and encourages them to confront and work through them.
  • Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) – REBT focuses on working through negative thoughts and feelings and replacing them with rational, realistic thoughts.

Behavioral therapy can treat several conditions such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and phobias. Problem-focused and action-oriented, this form of therapy takes place over a relatively short period while producing tangible results.

Family Therapy

Studies have found that including family in the addiction recovery process can improve the outcome of rehab programs. With this in mind, we incorporate family therapy into our treatment programs.

Family therapy doesn’t always mean that there is a problem within the family. Instead, it combats issues and helps members develop skills such as:

  • Reduced relationship distress
  • Discontinued maladaptive patterns
  • Increased relationship satisfaction
  • Improved communication skills
  • Resolution of conflict
  • Greater sense of connection

When group therapy is taken advantage of, it is not uncommon for family members to also participate in one-to-one therapy sessions. Usually spanning three months, family therapy is a deeply personal practice that requires dedication.

Individual Therapy

An evidence-based practice, one-to-one therapy helps reduce the overall impact of conditions such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction.

At Empowered Recovery Clinic, we offer the following types of one-to-one therapy:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – CBT teaches clients how their thoughts, feelings, and actions influence each other. CBT also delves into how those in recovery can make positive changes in their life.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) – DBT builds on CBT practices but focuses on emotional and social feelings.

One-to-one therapy encourages each client to develop a trusting relationship with their therapist to address any problems, issues, or concerns they may have.

Irrespective of whether treatment is needed for a mental health disorder or addiction, one-to-one therapy is included in all of our programs. During your time in treatment, we aim to find a therapist who is experienced in the area you need support in.

Group Therapy

Overseen by an experienced professional, group therapy encourages individuals in recovery to talk and listen to others who know how they feel. Typically consisting of eight to twelve people, group therapy is a comprehensive treatment plan that also utilizes one-to-one therapy.

There are many different types of group therapy, including:

  • Cognitive-behavioral groups – These groups use the principles of CBT to identify and change thoughts, feelings, and actions.
  • Skills development groups – These groups focus on developing lifelong skills to help people with different needs such as eating disorders, depression, or substance abuse.
  • Support groups – Support groups give people a safe space to share their problems and receive support from others in similar situations.

Experiential Therapies

Experiential therapies cover a range of therapeutic practices that focus on experiencing and understanding emotions and how they affect certain behaviors. There are many different types of experiential therapies, including:

  • Expressive therapies
  • Animal therapies
  • Adventure therapies

This form of therapy can be beneficial for those who struggle with traditional talking therapies. They can be especially effective in treating substance use disorders (SUD), as many struggling with addiction have trouble relating to people.

Using different mediums, such as art, animals, and adventure to promote therapeutic healing, experiential therapies promote trust between therapists and clients. These therapies additionally help those in recovery learn skills such as problem-solving techniques.

Some of the key benefits of experiential therapy include:

  • Better emotional processing
  • Increased creative expression
  • Reduced avoidance of uncomfortable thoughts or situations
  • Better situational resolution
