At Restore Treatment Center, we understand that recovery from addiction is no simple task. It requires dedication from the individual client and extensive rehabilitation services. Drug addiction and alcoholism are disorders that affect people physically, mentally, and emotionally. In order for addiction treatment to be successful, a full continuum of care, including detox, counseling, rehab and aftercare, must be applied during the recovery process.
We believe that counseling programs are a fundamental element of addiction recovery at Restore Treatment LA. Alcohol and drug counseling concentrates more on the emotional and mental aspects of addiction. These therapy programs help our clients to understand the underlying causes for their substance abuse, correct negative behavioral patterns, and prepare them for life after treatment.
Addiction counseling is a form of therapy that addresses underlying problems that an addict may be facing. Counseling takes place during individual, group, family and behavioral therapy. Behavioral therapies used in counseling vary in focus and involve:
Participation in group therapy and support programs can help a recovering addict maintain abstinence. The most common forms of counseling used in treatment include:
Conquering addiction or co-occurring disorders is not something that can be done on one’s own. People in recovery need a strong support system once they leave treatment. At Restore Treatment Center, we believe that making a commitment to attend ongoing counseling sessions and support group meetings plays a significant role in the recovery process. Meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and SMART Recovery offer the opportunity to meet people who are going through similar challenges. Working together through these obstacles allows every member within the support group to realize they are not alone in their addiction recovery journey. It also offers the opportunity to meet new people who are aiming to achieve similar goals, which can help maintain motivation levels.
Ongoing counseling after the completion of addiction treatment is an important factor in recovery from substance abuse. It provides support when life becomes challenging, and offers rescue when cravings and triggers to use arise. Our counseling programs at Restore Drug Treatment LA are designed to increase the success of addiction treatment and ensure the maintenance of sobriety over a lifetime.
