Our addiction treatment utilizes many different approaches to cater to the specific needs of a wide variety of patients. We use many different types of therapy, or modalities, to provide exceptional care and support to individuals working towards sustained sobriety. Lionheart Recovery utilizes the best evidence-based therapeutic methods to support patients towards finding and maintaining lasting success.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a contemporary behavioral therapy that helps patients deal with past experiences of trauma and ongoing sources of stress by replicating the rapid eye movement that typically occurs during sleep. Individuals focus on specific types of eye movements, sounds, or objects while completing therapy in order to help manage the stress and discomfort that accompanies traumatic memories. EMDR techniques are incredibly simple to learn and can be used anywhere. Many patients are given EMDR “homework” where they are given the opportunity to practice the stress management techniques outside of their therapy sessions, which can lead to long-lasting stress management capacity. This therapeutic method is often utilized to treat patients with stress disorders and PTSD and typically pairs well with other types of cognitive behavioral therapy. Many patients experience relief from some symptoms of addiction after as little as one EMDR session.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

REBT is a therapeutic method based on the idea that people react to the world around them with emotional responses based on their previous and current experiences. This means that individuals may not always make choices that make the most sense but rather will make decisions that feel right to them based on what they have learned in the past. REBT helps patients understand WHY they battle with addiction, and HOW they came to become addicted in the first place. This therapeutic method helps patients to be reflexive, and begin to interrogate why they make choices that do not support their sobriety. Individuals who participate in REBT will learn the skills necessary to continue to examine their choices and behaviors and begin to move towards a path focused on recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is incredibly common and is a favored technique for managing addiction for many psychological practitioners. This method is focused on helping patients identify negative thought patterns that contribute to their addictive behaviors. CBT can be used in both group and individual therapy, which makes it an ideal modality for individuals who may have limited funding to support their recovery. CBT also has the added bonus of allowing patients to work at their own pace as they begin to understand how their thoughts and experiences contribute to their addiction. Individuals can utilize CBT to cope with cravings, understand thoughts and feelings, and control negative emotions. Patients who use CBT will learn to manage social interactions in a positive way, will create new ways of thinking to overcome trauma, and will lean to block negative thought pathways that contribute to addictive behaviors.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is often utilized to treat mood disorders in adolescents, although it can be used to treat patients in any age group. This modality is focused on identifying triggers for drug and alcohol use for individuals who struggle with dependency. This process has five separate steps wherein the patient and licensed therapist first establish and practice coping skills. These skills are then followed by individual therapy and ongoing coaching. Next, patients and practitioners will work on skills training to manage different emotional states better. Finally, the patient will receive the support of an interdisciplinary team of medical professionals and mental health practitioners to complete a long-term treatment plan, if needed. The five stages help patients to understand what types of thoughts and situations may cause relapse and how to prevent and avoid them. This method is also particularly helpful for patients who struggle with not only dependency but also thoughts of suicide and self-harm. Many individuals who suffer from addiction also suffer from depression and anxiety and find this modality very meaningful for managing their dual diagnoses.
