Addiction is a complex disease requiring several approaches and steps so that individuals struggling with dependency can heal. As a chronic disease, it needs to be managed throughout one’s life. Thus, finding early treatment is imperative. The Florida residential rehab center at Lakeview Health offers addiction therapy services that can improve your chances of fully recovering from addiction.
When you are struggling with a substance abuse disorder like tens of millions of Americans, you can sometimes feel lost, frustrated, or alone. Addiction is not an indication of poor willpower. Addiction is a progressive, chronic, and potentially fatal disease that can impair your judgment, change your brain chemistry, and damage your physical health. Abusing drugs and alcohol increases your chances of experiencing a fatal overdose. Sadly, drug overdoses are the leading cause of accidental death in the country, demonstrating the severe outcomes addiction can lead to.

Cognitive-behavior therapy – CBT is frequently used in both individual counseling and group therapy settings because it helps patients learn to identify negative self-image and thoughts to change them for the better.
Dialectical behavior therapy – DBT is very similar to CBT and is another form of talk therapy used in both individual counseling and group sessions. DBT focuses on emotional regulation and learning to understand how and why a person experiences the feelings that they do.
Experimental therapy – In this kind of therapy, individuals participate in activities and events to work through their issues while confronting and overcoming their insecurities.
Family therapy– For many people, the family unit is the core of their lives. This form of therapy helps individuals reconcile with their family while also allowing family members to hold the individual accountable and address their own issues surrounding the patient’s substance use disorder.
Group therapy – With a counselor or therapist serving as a facilitator, in this therapy patients discuss their issues with their peers. It has the advantage of creating support and community which heightens accountability and increases responsibility.
Music therapy – This approach can involve a number of different approaches from simply listening to music to composing it to learning to play an instrument to learning how to record music. This specific form of encourages creativity and expression as a means of releasing and articulating feelings.
Yoga therapy – This is a common holistic approach used to help patients learn to control their emotions and thoughts. At the same time, yoga is a practice that strengthens and restores the body. This mixture of mental and physical treatment makes it a valuable therapy for many.
Trauma-informed therapy – Trauma-informed therapy begins with the idea that in many instances of addiction, trauma is at the center. It therefore focuses on the role that trauma has played in an individual’s life and the degree to which it has fueled and facilitated addiction.
Recreation therapy – In recreational therapy (sometimes referred to as “therapeutic recreation”), counselors use recreation and other activity-based treatment modalities to address the needs of individuals struggling with addiction and the co-occurring mental conditions that so often accompany it.
When patients enter our inpatient treatment center, they’ll be given access to the therapies necessary to meet their specific needs. We know that no one will travel the same path to recovery. Thus, we build our addiction treatment programs to be accessible to all and provide as many options as possible. Part of the benefits of 24-hour inpatient rehab care is that patients will be able to commit and focus on their treatment without any outside distractions. However, Lakeview Health offers the complete continuum of care where patients will be able to continue their therapy no matter what stage of treatment they are in or what program best meets their needs.
Transitional housing, such as a sober living house, offers you a safe and supportive housing option. Outpatient addiction therapy services are less time-intensive and allow you to return home each night. Partial hospitalization programs meet for at least six hours per day, five days a week. Some partial hospitalization programs also offer outpatient detox services. Intensive outpatient programs typically meet for two or three days per week.
Both residential and outpatient addiction therapy programs like the ones at Lakeview Health may utilize a combination of evidence-based addiction therapy and holistic addiction treatments. Residential/inpatient treatment, however, offers the most intensive level of care. Outpatient care is therefore often recommended only after a patient has undergone detoxification and residential treatment.
There are also hard drinkers who get drunk regularly, yet don’t suffer from alcoholism. Once faced with dire circumstances like potential job loss, a DUI, or problems with their spouse or friends, they are able to taper off their usage. Certain health issues may arise from regular drinking in excess, but these particular drinkers can logically see that their social drinking is negatively affecting their life, and they can stop when they want to. Someone who is developing alcoholism simply can’t do this, and it’s one of the first signs of alcohol addiction.
During treatment, addiction therapy services can provide you with the education, support, and skills you need to learn how to manage cravings. Although you may feel hopeless when you are trapped in addiction, recovery is possible. Addiction is treatable and with the right support individuals can learn to not just cope with the disease but take control back and eventually overcome it.
