Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT for short, is a form of psychotherapy that is often used when treating addiction and other mental illnesses. Learn more about how United Recovery Project Utilizes CBT when treating substance abuse.
Individual therapy is key to overcoming many of the root causes of addiction and any other co-occurring disorders you may be experiencing. Clients can expect at least a daily check-in and weekly individual session with their therapist to discuss their behaviors and thought patterns and learn how to overcome them.
Relapse Prevention Education
Relapse is a real possibility for those in early recovery. According to studies, most relapses occur within the first 6 months once detoxification is completed. United Recovery Project offers real-life relapse prevention techniques to teach our clients how to avoid relapse and be successful in achieving long-term recovery.
Medication Management Services
Once an addict quits abusing drugs there may be periods of depression, anxiety and other symptoms that may have been masked by addiction or due to post-acute withdrawal syndrome. At United Recovery Project, clients will see a psychiatrist weekly in order to establish any medications that may be needed and attend medication management groups to teach them how to safely be responsible with their medications.
Health & Wellness Program
Physical fitness and healthy eating are both important therapies used when a person is healing their body from years of substance abuse. Our clients have access to a gym, yoga, nutrition classes, and more in order to learn how to continue to take care of their bodies once they leave United Recovery Project.
Addiction takes many things from those who suffer from it. Sometimes that can include basic life skills. United Recovery Project aims to teach clients how to be responsible, productive people. Whether it is learning how to cook meals, or doing their own laundry, these valuable life-skills will be essential in ensuring success in recovery.
Group therapy is the most common type of therapy utilized in addiction treatment. Many other therapies like relapse prevention are done in the group setting. Since one important aspect when treating addiction is being able to identify with others, group therapy allows clients to share their experiences while encouraging each other in a supportive environment as well.
Addiction many time is called a family disease. Each member of the addicted’s family plays a role and most likely enabled their loved-one’s addiction for some time. Thankfully the family program here at United Recovery Project aims to heal each member of the family unit and help the entire family recover together along with the addict.
Vivitrol/Naloxone Medication-Assisted Therapy
United Recovery Project supports the use of non-narcotic medication-assisted therapy with Vivitrol and naltrexone therapy for those abusing alcohol and opioids. These medications, when taken in therapeutic settings, can help ease post-acute withdrawal symptoms and be used as a shield from relapse.
Music & Art Therapy
Creative therapies such as music and art have been used throughout modern history to treat addiction and mental illness. At our facility clients experience art and music therapy throughout their stay utilizing these methods as a way to express their feelings and deal with them.
