Evidence-Based Therapies for Treating Addiction

How We Can Help

Addiction & Mental Health

Overview

For many years’ addiction was viewed as a conscious choice. It was believed that those who turned to drugs or alcohol did so voluntarily. Along with this belief came the belief that if an addict “truly wanted to quit,” they could easily do so. These harmful beliefs stretched beyond the friends and loved ones of those struggling with addiction into society and the medical community. These misconceptions have caused many who struggle with addiction to avoid seeking treatment due to fear of perception and stigma. Each year over twenty million Americans struggle with an addiction to at least one substance. Of those, less than ten percent will ever seek or receive essential and possibly life-saving addiction treatment. 

Fortunately, with time and education, the belief systems surround addiction and addiction treatment has evolved. Today it is well understood that addiction is a disease. It is a complex condition that results in significant physical changes to the brain both in structure and function. Someone who struggles with an addiction has an intense focus on using or obtaining a particular substance or substances such as alcohol or drugs. This focus persists to the point where it eventually impacts the addict’s ability to function without using or drinking. Unfortunately, they will continue to use alcohol or drugs even when they are well aware of the adverse consequences that come with their use. In many cases, choosing not to seek addiction treatment results in chronic and potentially dangerous drug and alcohol use.

Our Addiction Therapy Options

Addiction to drugs or alcohol impacts the whole person. For treatment to be successful, your treatment team needs to have a comprehensive understanding of your medical and mental health.  When you first arrive at Liberty House, our treatment team will conduct a full medical and physical assessment. This assessment includes questions about all aspects of your mental and physical health. A full medical and psychiatric assessment will help our treatment staff understand any co-occurring physical or mental health conditions that must be treated simultaneously with your addiction. Also, your body must be free of substances before you can fully immerse yourself in therapy for your addiction. Depending on your specific treatment needs, Liberty House offers medically supervised detox services and essential psychiatric care to help you begin your treatment journey free of substances. Medically supervised detox is a vital part of many treatment programs as the detox and withdrawal process can be uncomfortable and sometimes complicated. Medical supervision and psychiatric monitoring can help ensure you complete the detox process in a safe and healthy way. Once detox is complete, you can transition into a comprehensive therapy program where trained clinical psychologists will help you learn more about addiction and how to address and change addictive behavior through body and brain restoration, addiction education, and a focus on holistic health, nutrition, and overall wellness. 

The decision to seek addiction treatment requires acknowledging that you have a problematic relationship with substances. Unfortunately, many people who should seek addiction treatment are not ready to accept or acknowledge that they have an addiction. In some cases, intervention services can be beneficial to help a friend or loved one accept the help in support of an addiction treatment program. 

Complementary Therapies & Integrative Medicine

There are many different types of counseling and therapeutic interventions used in the addiction treatment setting. The most successful programs are those that combine traditional therapies with alternative therapy options to provide a holistic or “whole person” treatment experience. Addiction treatment can take place in various ways. For some, one on one counseling is the most beneficial as they feel comfortable expressing their fears and concerns around sobriety and addiction to a therapist they’ve grown comfortable talking to. Traditional therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and other psychotherapy techniques are used to help addicts in recovery discover the root causes of addictive behaviors and then find healthy and safe ways to change those behaviors. Psychotherapy works well in a one-on-one setting, but it also works well in a group setting or as part of family therapy. Family programming is a vital part of addiction treatment as it is often members of the family who serve as crucial supports for someone returning home from addiction treatment. Family m
