OS RECOVERY THERAPIES & TREATMENT MODALITIES
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Those undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy are prodded to consider how their inner mental patients relate to their external behavior. Emphasis is placed on the link between our feelings and actions so that we may learn to think and feel more critically. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is often used in the treatment of substance abuse to help patients gain insight into the interplay between these factors and to facilitate behavioral shifts through the modification of underlying cognitive processes and habitual ways of thinking.
Through mutually beneficial conversation and well-thought-out inquiry, Motivational Interviewing (MI) can help people who want to reduce their risky behavior. Using this method, doctors can better comprehend how a patient’s substance abuse impacts their daily lives. Because of the personalized and strengths-based nature of this treatment, you and your therapist will work together to design a program of change that is tailored to your specific needs and progresses at your own pace.
Trauma Informed Therapy
Understanding how one’s traumatic experiences affect one’s individual, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual health is an important goal of trauma-focused treatment. An individual who has been traumatized will have an intuitive understanding of how their feelings and actions are tied to their experience of trauma.
A form of psychotherapy known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) helps people deal with the emotional effects of recalling traumatic events. This will be used by the clinical team as a means of treating substance abuse disorders. It can help mitigate the distress associated with addiction and diminish the likelihood of relapse. Other mood and anxiety problems, such as phobias, sadness, and panic disorders, have also responded well to this psychotherapy.
Internal Family Systems
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a psychotherapy approach that recognizes and treats various sub-personalities or families. These sub-personalities include damaged parts, painful emotions like rage and shame, and parts that want to control and protect the person from the pain. The sub-personalities often clash with each other and with one’s core Self, the confident, caring, entire person at the core of every individual. IFS heals wounded portions and restores mental balance and harmony by modifying sub-personality and self dynamics.
Mindfulness Based Therapy
Addiction has many underlying thoughts and emotions. Mindfulness treatment can help addicts recognize and accept their cravings instead of ignoring or suppressing them. Mindfulness therapy teaches addicts how to replace substance use with healthy coping skills. Mindfulness therapy is a mental approach to experience-related emotions, sensations, and thoughts. It helps people dissociate from the experience rather than loathing or doubting the experience, just accepting it.
Medicated Assisted Treatment
Naltrexone and buprenorphine are two medications that help our patients by lowering cravings and preventing withdrawal symptoms, which are frequent obstacles to recovery. One of the best ways to treat substance abuse is with medications used in conjunction with other types of therapy according to treatment.

Dialectical therapy is a type of talking therapy treatment that can be performed one-on-one or in group settings. Although DBT is derived from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), it has been modified specifically to help people who experience exceptionally strong emotions. DBT is used to assist people with mental health issues in recognizing and remediating destructive thought patterns.
