Therapy is a vital part of addiction treatment. From developing healthy coping skills to addressing the underlying causes of addiction, therapy can help people in treatment make progress in their recovery. There are a number of different types of therapy that can be helpful for people in treatment for addiction, and each person may respond differently to different types of therapy. At Calvary Healing Center, we work with patients to determine which types of therapy will be most helpful for them in their recovery.

Why We Offer Addiction Therapies
Why is therapy such an important part of addiction treatment? There are a number of reasons. First, therapy can help people in treatment develop healthy coping skills. Those who are struggling with addiction can often benefit from learning how to deal with difficult emotions and situations in a healthy way. Stress, for example, can be a trigger for relapse, so learning healthy coping skills to deal with stress can be very helpful in recovery.
In addition, therapy can help people in treatment address the underlying causes of their addiction. Often, there are things like trauma or mental health concerns that can contribute to addictive behaviors. By addressing these underlying causes, people in treatment can make progress in their recovery.
Types of Addiction Therapies at Calvary Healing Center
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a type of therapy that can help people in treatment learn to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors. The principles of CBT involve identifying negative thoughts and beliefs, challenging those thoughts, and replacing them with more positive ones.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on helping people in treatment develop skills to deal with difficult emotions and situations. DBT emphasizes the importance of balance in life, and it teaches skills like mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of therapy that can help people in treatment process and heal from past trauma. EMDR involves having the patient focus on a back-and-forth movement while recalling a traumatic event. The goal is to help the patient process the trauma and reduce the negative emotions associated with it.
Opening up in front of a group of strangers can be scary, but group therapy can be very helpful in treatment. In group therapy, people in treatment meet with a therapist and a group of other people who are also in treatment. This environment can provide support and allow people to share their experiences with others who understand what they’re going through.
