Treatment Therapies in Asheville
Therapies for Alcohol & Drug Addiction Treatment
Therapy is an important element of any recovery. For those struggling with substance use disorders, treatment therapy can help provide the critical insights needed to understand and overcome harmful, unhealthy behaviors. When used in conjunction with other forms of addiction treatment—such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT), residential rehab, and/or intensive outpatient care—treatment therapy can serve as a powerful tool in maintaining long-term sobriety.
Since 2018, Carolina Recovery Solutions has been helping individuals and families struggling with the effects of substance abuse and addiction get the help they need to heal. At our unique facility, we offer a range of therapeutic treatments designed to meet the individual needs of each patient. We employ a whole-person approach to recovery in a warm, welcoming, and beautiful setting in the Appalachian Mountains where patients can disconnect from triggers and focus on their recovery.
Widely regarded as one of the most effective methods of treating substance use disorders, behavioral therapies focus on providing individuals with the tools they need to identify unhealthy behaviors and replace them with healthy ones.
Some of the most common types of behavioral therapies used to treat substance abuse and addiction include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is the most well-known and most commonly used types of behavioral therapy when it comes to treating substance abuse and addiction. With CBT, patients learn to recognize their maladaptive behaviors, including those that lead to and are caused by addiction, as well as modify those behaviors. CBT has many advantages, including helping patients improve their coping skills, develop strategies to manage stress, identify risky situations and behaviors, and create a clear plan for avoiding relapse. The skills a patient learns in CBT can extend beyond treatment and be used long-term, allowing the patient to achieve lasting sobriety.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: Dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, is typically used to treat cooccurring mental and behavioral health disorders in those struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Unlike CBT, which is frequently used to help treat a wide range of behavioral disorders and issues, regardless of severity, DBT is most often reserved for severe mental and behavioral health disorders, such as severe borderline personality disorder. DBT can be extremely useful in helping patients learn to recognize and modify risky behaviors, manage cravings and triggers, and prevent relapse.
- Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy: Rational emotive behavior therapy, or REBT, focuses on a patient’s thought patterns and emotions. The goal of REBT is to help individuals learn to recognize the way they think and develop better, healthier habits. REBT has been shown to improve positive, rational thinking and help patients obtain a greater degree of emotional management.
These are just some examples of common behavioral therapies used in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, as well as cooccurring mental health disorders. Others include contingency management, motivational interviewing, and the Matrix Model, which was specifically designed for the treatment of stimulant abuse and addiction.
In addition to a range of behavioral therapies, Carolina Recovery Solutions offers several alternative therapeutic treatments for those navigating substance abuse and addiction treatment. As part of integrated treatment program, these therapies offer a powerful, whole-person approach to healing.
Some of our alternative treatment therapies include:
- Adventure Therapy: Adventure therapy is a type of psychotherapy originally developed in the 1960s. It focuses on improving overall health and wellness through community, nature, and physical activity. Patients participate in a series of adventurous, outdoor activities that have been clinically proven to enhance physical, mental, emotional, and social health, thereby creating a foundation for recovery and healing.
- Acupuncture: Acupuncture therapy, or simply acupuncture, has been proven to be beneficial in the treatment of substance use disorders in some people. Research has shown that acupuncture can help naturally raise endorphin levels in the body, which can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings associated with alcohol and drug use disorders. The process involves the insertion of paper-thin needs at specific points on the body, followed by a period of restfulness (typically about 30 to 45 minutes) after which the needles are removed.
- Yoga: Studies have shown that yoga therapy can be a highly beneficial component of alcohol and drug addiction treatment and recovery. When used in conjunction with other therapies and treatments, yoga can help increase physical strength and stamina, reduce stress, improve self-confidence, decrease fatigue, enhance self-reflection and awareness, and heighten overall health and wellbeing.
At Carolina Recovery Solutions, we believe in a holistic approach to recovery. Located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, our facility offers a welcoming and serene setting for those navigating substance abuse and addiction treatment.
