What is Therapy for Addiction?
Drug or alcohol addiction is a lot more than just the physical symptoms. Addiction is about behavior, and habits, and is just as much a mental situation. Therapy is used heavily during addiction treatment to help a person learn coping mechanisms, acquire tips, and improve their overall wellbeing. Understanding why a person started using drugs is just as important in the process of recovery.
Therapy is about understanding a person’s thoughts, and feelings, and how they influence their behaviors. Without guidance or help, a person can fall into a vicious cycle of using drugs or alcohol to cope with their stress or other mental conditions. At the end of the day, addiction doesn’t have to be a solo venture. Our team of trained and passionate therapists/staff is here to make the process smooth. You deserve a better life and it’s time we help you fight for that.

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF THERAPY FOR DRUG ADDICTION
Each type of therapy has its own unique benefits and can be tailored to the individual needs of the person struggling with addiction. These are typically used in tandem with addiction treatment services to provide a well-rounded treatment. Let’s break down some of our most commonly used therapy options at Eagle Creek Ranch.
There are many different types of therapy that can be used to treat addiction. Some of the therapy we offer here at Eagle Creek Ranch include:
Individual therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on the individual needs of the person struggling with addiction. This type of therapy can help identify underlying issues that may be contributing to the addiction, such as trauma or mental health disorders. Individual therapy can also provide support and guidance through the recovery process.
Group therapy is a type of therapy that involves meeting with other people who are also struggling with addiction. This type of therapy can provide support and accountability while also helping individuals learn from others’ experiences. Group therapy can be a powerful tool in recovery. Group therapy helps a person feel like they are not alone in their struggles and provides a supportive space with others.
Trauma can be the main reason why a person may turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate. This is especially true for those who have had experience in the military or have experienced traumatic events.
Trauma therapy is a type of therapy that can help individuals who have experienced trauma heal from their experiences. This type of therapy can help address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health disorders. Trauma therapy can be an important part of recovery for many individuals.
Equine therapy is a type of therapy that involves working with horses. This type of therapy can help individuals in recovery learn about trust, communication, and boundaries. Equine therapy can also provide a sense of calm and relaxation. Equine therapy is a unique but effective way of understanding life’s simple pleasures while learning valuable tools in the process.
Adventure therapy is a type of therapy that involves activities such as hiking, camping, and rock climbing. This type of therapy can help individuals in recovery build confidence and self-esteem. Adventure therapy can also help individuals in recovery learn to overcome challenges.
At Eagle Creek Ranch Recovery, we know that life can be a journey, one of excitement and joy. Adventure therapy is just one of the many alternative therapy options we provide to our patients.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a type of therapy that helps individuals in recovery change negative thinking patterns. CBT is one of the most commonly used therapy methods used today. CBT focuses on identifying and changing negative behavioral patterns and thoughts. This is crucial to creating a long-term goal and avoiding relapse. This type of therapy can also help individuals in recovery learn coping skills.
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on helping people change unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors. The goal of DBT is to help people learn how to better cope with stressful situations and emotions, communicate more effectively, and make healthier choices.
DBT was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has since been shown to be effective in treating a variety of other mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
