About Behavioral Treatment
There are many different types of behavioral treatment available for the treatment of your specific drug addiction. We take the viewpoint that substance addiction is a multi-faceted issue that will require intensive outpatient treatment, but is very treatable. We understand that you may have attempted to detox alone and failed. We also understand that you desire to have your previous life back. Behavioral treatment, along with medications for addiction and family support can vital to rebuilding your self-esteem and self-confidence.
For patients like you who are proactively choosing drug rehab, the process of addiction recovery will change your future. Opus Treatment Costa Mesa is proud to be able to offer you a real chance at sobriety. We always impress on our clients that behavioral treatment for addiction recovery has been proven as one of the most successful options for dealing with substance abuse and heroin addiction. This is an important point that we will encourage you as our client to embrace fully. Medications for addiction are a necessary part of many drug treatment programs in Costa Mesa but they do not address your underlying pain, grief or regret. Opus treatment takes behavioral treatment seriously as it is not a band aid for recovering addicts, but a way to permanently shift thinking and behavior.
Behavioral Treatment Types
There are different modalities for behavioral treatment. Each of the following types of behavioral treatments addresses a specific aspect of addiction. Some were developed to deal directly with attitude shifts and others focus on abstinence. Whether it be environmental trigger issues or compulsive tendencies, all of these behavioral therapies help you work through the underlying issues that contributed or fueled addiction in the first place.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) works to help clients identify their behavior patterns and unhealthy relationships that worked together feed the need to depend on drugs or alcohol. There are several interventions that clients will walk through with their behavioral therapist in order to gain better insight and create new skills that will greatly aid with long-term sobriety. Contingency Management is a specific type of behavioral therapy that focuses on a reward system. Clients work towards real rewards such as vouchers or upgraded privileges while in addiction treatment in Costa Mesa, CA.
There are also natural consequences to remaining sober and following the drug treatment program such as positive self-image and renewed relationship opportunities with loved ones. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is often viewed by clients as a more extensive type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as it focuses on areas not covered by CBT. For clients dealing with dual-diagnosis, the presence of mental illness can require additional support. Some more common mental health issues are depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is much like CBT as it focuses primarily on an individual’s feelings and thoughts.
Often, recovering addicts have flawed opinions and beliefs that work to further fuel dependency on illicit drugs and alcohol. When a client feels that others have unrealistic expectations or experience unfair treatment, it is the therapist’s job to confront the hypocrisy by using modality called the ABC model. Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) works by utilizing personalized treatment plans that are designed to push clients to make healthy changes both behaviorally and mentally. This treatment plan is broken into four different sessions in which clients are walked through self-evaluation, goal setting exercises, realistic perceptions and positive reinforcement.
There are other types of behavioral treatment models such as The Matrix Model, Family Therapy, Community-Based Treatments, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
