Addiction Therapies

When it comes to treating addiction, South Coast Counseling believes there is no one-size-fits-all approach, which is why we offer a variety of addiction therapies. Our goal is to provide each client with their own individual treatment experience by using truly individualized treatment plans. Our dedicated staff works with each client to address the core issues that led to their drug problem and help guide them to long-term recovery from addiction.

Underestimating the importance of therapy in the drug and alcohol addiction treatment processes can have drastic, painful consequences. Those patients who never confronted the root causes of their substance abuse problem are much more likely to relapse into the destructive behaviors characteristic of addiction as soon as they move on from the rehab center. The benefits offered by therapists who specialize in alcohol and drug addiction treatment are manifold. For one, they offer the patient the chance to delve into the emotional underpinnings of his or her self-damaging tendencies.

What Types of Therapies are Used When Treating Addiction?

Among the types of therapy offered are one-on-one talk sessions, twelve-step programs, group therapy and cognitive therapy. Each provides an array of different positive aspects. For example, group therapy allows peers to come together to express, in a completely safe environment, their troubles, concerns and feelings. This mutual support can extend even beyond the group, creating lasting, life-affirming bonds that are tremendously beneficial to the recovery process. The risk of relapse is mitigated by the development and reinforcement of an understanding, compassionate social circle. There are many, many structured therapy techniques available to ensure a profound and lasting recovery.
