Therapies / Treatment Modalities

Modern science has been focusing on mental health issues and addictions for a very long time. Over the years, multiple treatment modalities were developed to help people to overcome their mental issues and addictions.

Addiction changes your perception, and you develop unhealthy behavioral mechanisms of reacting towards life situations. Behavioral therapy helps you to become more conscious of your thoughts and triggers as you take active measures to change your habits.

At the Lighthouse Recovery we utilize the most advance and evidence-based treatment modalities of cognitive-behavioral therapy to help our patients battling addiction to overcome their addictions, and return to normal life.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been historically established as the most effectiveness form of psychotherapy for treating mental conditions and substance use disorders. While many maladaptive behavioral patterns directly led to addiction and substance abuse, it must be recognized that these are learned behaviors. Any learned behavior can be unlearned and changed through addiction therapy which also helps to nurture coping skills that replace dangerous habits. Cognitive Behavioral therapists use behavioral therapy to help their clients learn how to recognize and transform irrational, and harmful thoughts or perspectives into realistic and empowering ideas transforming their ways of dealing with life situations.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is viewed as a sub-category of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). While CBT focuses on irrational thoughts, DBT focuses on identifying and changing patient’s negative thinking and on adopting positive behavioral perspectives. Dialectical Behavior Therapy focuses on the drivers of one’s behavior allowing the patient to implement the change and accept it leading to optimal behavioral patterns. DBT works exceptionally well in cases of destructive and suicidal behaviors. At the Lighthouse Recovery, we use behavioral therapy in the treatment of destructive and suicidal behaviors helping patients to develop coping skills and to learn how to make the right choices when facing serious life decisions and consequences.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a form of psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR has been proven to be effective in cases of Post Traumatic Stress disorders and post-trauma complications. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.
