At Origins Addiction Services, outpatient counseling is a core treatment element. Having access to regular therapy sessions offers clients a trusted source of support. This is especially the case during the early months of recovery when challenges to sobriety often emerge and therapeutic guidance can be quite helpful.
Counseling is provided in either individual or group formats, each playing a vital role in promoting personal growth in recovery. Some of the most effective therapies utilized in alcohol counseling include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT focuses on improving the quality of our cognitive (thoughts) and behavioral connections. When a dysfunctional pattern is repeated over and over, it can result in destructive patterns of behavior. CBT helps to dismantle that connection and replace it with new healthy thought-behavior patterns.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
DBT focuses on four areas of functioning: emotion regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness. By developing these key skills, the individual learns to better manage negative mood states and to reduce self-criticism. By practicing the DBT tools, individuals are able to make positive changes in their daily lives.
CM uses rewards to incentivize the individual in early recovery, helping them to remain committed to sobriety. The rewards are often tied to the results of random drug and alcohol screening protocols.
Motivational Enhancement Therapy
MET helps the individual overcome mixed feelings about sobriety in early recovery. MET therapy is based on five treatment goals: to develop and express empathy; to identify disparate feelings about treatment; to avoid arguments; to accept resistance; to acknowledge self-efficacy.
