What Is Traditional Therapy?

At Spark To Recovery, our list of traditional therapies is extensive, in comparison to most other rehab centers. In addition to the expected programs, we also provide a wide array of behavioral therapies. Our clients can utilize these therapies, along with their treatment program, to help overcome their addiction. The following is a list of valuable traditional therapies available at Spark To Recovery and how each one is used:

  • Group Therapy: Our therapists treat small groups of patients in an interactive support group. These therapeutic sessions allow all patients to share their experiences during recovery, the challenges they face along the way, and how they overcome or cope with those issues. Group therapy is designed to boost our patients’ self-esteem and confidence and help them reduce stress.

  • Family Therapy: This is a type of psychotherapy that helps re-build damaged family structures due to substance abuse and addiction. Family conflicts are resolved through repairing family connection and improving communication skills.

  • Individual Therapy: Individual therapies are usually facilitated during a patient’s drug or alcohol rehabilitation process. Licensed therapists will work with them on a one-on-one basis to explore their reasons, feelings, and beliefs for acting on unhealthy behaviors. By addressing these deep-rooted personal reasons for the drug addiction, patients will realize there’s more to life than just substance abuse.

  • Life Skills Therapy: From managing one’s personal finances to preparing for job interviews to developing healthy diets, life skills educational sessions help patients become more independent to enjoy successfully living on their own.

  • Moral Recognition Therapy: Also known as MRT, this therapy uses a combination of psychological practices to improve a patient’s moral reasoning, helps them develop a positive identity, and assist with egocentric behaviors. The goal is to prevent patients from returning to abusing alcohol and drugs.

  • Relapse Prevention: This therapy uses cognitive behavioral principles to help patients develop their own relapse-prevention techniques. They learn to identify and avoid high-risk situations that may trigger cravings and urges.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Also known as CBT, this evidence-based psychological therapy helps patients and licensed clinical therapists identify unhealthy behaviors and thoughts that are causing the addiction. By being aware of these signs, patients can replace them with fulfilling and healthy habits.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: This is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that helps patients work through intense emotional reactions by neutralizing, normalizing, and avoiding resistance. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is usually recommended to patients who suffer from mental health issues and are experiencing suicidal thoughts.

What Is Alternative Therapy?

Alcohol or drug addiction can change the way a person’s brain functions over time. For example, the individual may feel that he or she needs more of a certain substance to function normally or to satisfy intense cravings. Fortunately, addiction treatment is available. In addition to traditional addiction treatment therapies, alternative therapies can also help patients enhance recovery and emerge from rehab with a new, healthier lifestyle. At Spark To Recovery, we specialize in an array of alternative addiction treatment therapies, including:

  • Art Therapy: Clients overcome negative thoughts and emotions caused by addiction through creative expression. We aim to help patients improve their sense of well-being and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.

  • Exercise Therapy: Incorporating body weight exercises into addiction therapies can help patients regain balance and regulate brain chemistry, e.g., promoting the natural production of endorphins.

  • Wellness Programs: By improving a patient’s health, emotional, and mental well-being, they can use their positivity and confidence to sustain long-term abstinence from substance abuse.

  • Nutritional Therapy: It is important to learn how to eat well because food can influence how the brain functions. During recovery, your body should be able to produce enough brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and regulate levels of serotonin.

  • Meditation: Meditation can help improve mental functioning, increase self-awareness, promote a sense of calm and inner peace, and enhance overall health and well-being.

  • Yoga Therapy in Los Angeles: Yoga is another method to connect the mind, body, and breath to boost mind-body awareness, regulate mood, reduce stress, and boost relaxation. It is part of Spark To Recovery’s holistic approach to addiction treatment.

  • Sober Outings in Los Angeles: Moving from a medically assisted environment back to normal living can be a challenging transition. Some patients may revert to old habits upon leaving rehab. Spark To Recovery organizes sober activities to help patients replace old habits with positive, new habits.
