What Is Therapy for Addiction?

Just as every addiction is different, therapy for addiction treatment should also vary and be customized to your individual needs and goals. At The Mend, our strategy for helping you get on the road to lasting recovery includes individual therapy.

One-one-one care helps you to get to the root causes of your addiction, which may include mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety or PTSD.

Therapy to promote long-term recovery includes cognitive-behavioral therapy, which works to alter negative thought patterns so you can successfully achieve and maintain sobriety without falling prey to past triggers.

Recovery-focused group therapy also plays an important part in the recovery process. This type of therapy helps you cope with the symptoms of addiction through the non-judgmental help of others who are facing or have faced similar struggles. Group therapy creates bonds that can act as lifelines when you need them most.

Holistic therapy strategies are an integral part of the journey toward lasting recovery. The Mend staff teaches mindfulness meditation as a way to help you remain focused and in the moment as you go through the life-altering process of leaving a substance use disorder behind. Meditation positively alters mood and helps to alleviate and manage stress levels.

We also provide other therapeutic activities at our facility, such as yoga and breathwork, a technique that focuses on breathing patterns to benefit your state of health, both emotional and physical.

Regardless of the therapy you receive at The Mend, all sessions are led in a safe, supportive and comfortable environment.
