A Better Today understands that you may not know what to expect in your therapy sessions. This uncertainty may even cause you to clam up and refuse to share. Know that anything said to our master’s level therapists are protected by HIPAA Laws. Our therapists take this part of their treatment seriously and understand that when you are ready to let the mental healing begin, we are ready to help you find mental peace.
Comprehensive Functional Analysis: Properly diagnosing our client’s co-occurring psychological problems and the severity of his or her addiction is our first step. This process helps tailor the treatment plan for each client. Addiction effects everyone differently, getting to the root of the problem is where the real healing begins.
Developing Coping Skills: The client needs to learn healthy coping mechanisms for moments of crisis and everyday stressors. Situations like a stressful day at work, a car breaking down and family reunions can trigger someone to use and abuse drugs or alcohol. ABT will provide you with life-long solutions; we encourage long lasting treatment methods that clients can practice every day.
Relapse Prevention: Many of our clients who are eight months, or even two years sober, share their innate fear of relapsing. From the nightmares of using that feel all too real to seeing the drug store they use to pick up dope at, relapse can feel like a haunting presence. Practicing and learning methods that provide confidence and strength in your recovery is important for ABT to teach you. To make mistakes is only human and relapse should not come with guilt or shame, but room for growth and learning. We won’t let you walk out our doors without knowing that you are confident in what you learned from our drug and alcohol treatment programs.
