Substance Abuse Therapies

According to statistics from the National Center for Drug Abuse, half of Americans over the age of 12 have tried an illegal drug. More than 140,000 Americans die from the effects of alcohol in an average year. With shocking statistics like that, it’s no wonder why so many are looking for therapies for addiction that work.

Vogue Recovery Center offers a full continuum of addiction treatment programs. The science of substance abuse treatment has advanced considerably in the past few decades. That means you have more options for recovery than ever before. Treatment plans feature evidence-based therapies integrated with holistic and alternative practices. This makes for a more comprehensive healing process.

The recovery process can be a long and winding road, but when you have clinical professionals on your side, sobriety is closer than you think. Vogue Recovery Center is here to help you achieve your goal of sobriety. We employ a staff of experienced and certified therapists. They oversee the recovery process for all. Recovery is always easier when you work with professional addiction treatment counselors.

Why Is Therapy for Substance Abuse Important?

Addiction therapists are licensed professionals with specialized knowledge and experience treating substance abuse. They understand the complexities of addiction and how it impacts you and your family. Addiction is often accompanied by other mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression. Professional therapists can integrate substance use treatment with mental health treatment for a comprehensive approach to recovery.

Addiction is often rooted in underlying emotional, psychological, or social issues. A professional therapist can help identify these underlying factors and work with you to address them. Without addressing the root causes, achieving long-term recovery becomes more difficult.

Addiction affects not only you but also your loved ones. Family therapy can help repair and improve relationships, improve communication, and support you and the ones you love during recovery.

What Is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis refers to the presence of two or more mental health conditions occurring at the same time. It’s also known as co-occurring disorders and often refers to a substance use disorder (such as alcohol or drug addiction) and a mental health disorder. Each condition can influence the other and make it worse. For example, a person with depression may turn to alcohol to cope with their challenging emotions, leading to an alcohol use disorder. Excessive alcohol consumption may contribute to your depression symptoms getting worse.

Evidence-Based Addiction Therapy

Vogue Recovery Center uses different psychotherapies and techniques in the addiction recovery process. Our goal is to take advantage of the latest and most effective treatments to aid you on your journey to sobriety. Each treatment is overseen by a skilled and experienced therapist. We understand how best to treat addiction and underlying mental illness.

Some of the evidence-based addiction treatments at Vogue Recovery Center include:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an evidence-based therapeutic approach for addiction. A therapist helps you identify unhealthy and inaccurate ways of thinking, the negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with substance abuse. You’ll learn to replace those thoughts with healthier, more accurate ones. Through this process, you will see how thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interlinked and acquire the knowledge and tools to make positive changes in your life.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT combines cognitive behavioral (CBT) techniques with mindfulness practices to help you regulate your emotions and manage stress. This can include paying attention to your physical and sensory experience as distressing emotions and thoughts arise. DBT is known to be particularly effective for people who struggle with:

  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Eating disorders
  • Addiction
  • Personality disorders like borderline personality disorder

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a psychotherapy technique developed to treat trauma. While it’s not intended for addiction treatment, it can be a complementary approach, addressing the underlying trauma and emotional issues that often contribute to addiction.

During an EMDR session, your therapist will use different techniques to stimulate rapid eye movement while you recall difficult feelings or experiences. This bilateral stimulation of your eyes can help you re-process past trauma so it’s less intrusive in your present-day life. EMDR can be particularly useful in treating:

  • Physiological fear symptoms
  • Anxiety
  • Flashbacks
  • Overwhelming thoughts
  • Panic attacks

Offered at: Arizona and Nevada

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

CPT is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) designed to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is not a specific treatment for addiction but may be used as a complementary approach in certain cases where trauma is a contributing factor to substance use.

Your therapist will help you recognize how past trauma impacts your present-day life. You’ll work to reframe the way you process traumatic events and learn specific skills to do so. CPT can be used in group therapy or one-on-one counseling.

Offered at: Nevada and Arizona

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT aims to help you develop psychological flexibility by accepting challenging emotions and thoughts while committing to value-driven actions. It encourages you to stay centered in the present. Your therapist will teach you mindfulness tools that help you accept your thoughts and experiences without labeling them as good or bad. When you train your brain to notice and accept thoughts and feelings, the urge to numb them out with alcohol or drugs may not be as intense. Acceptance and commitment therapy also helps you set goals and pinpoint concrete ways you can make positive changes in your life.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

MI aims to enhance your motivation for change and promote commitment to treatment. It helps you explore and resolve ambivalence about quitting substance use and moving toward a healthier lifestyle.

Your therapist serves as a guide and collaborator, helping you find your own answers and goals for the future. You’ll gain a sense of independence, self-affirmation, and confidence.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Family Therapy

Addiction doesn’t just affect you but your family and loved ones as well. Relationships and interpersonal patterns can also contribute to your substance abuse. Vogue Recovery Center offers several resources for your loved ones to heal from addiction’s wounds as well. Family counseling involves the participation of family members in the treatment process to improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen the support system.

Depending on our location, family support may include family groups, family therapy, or family events. The goal is for all family members to learn how to communicate better and support each other in helpful ways.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a crucial component of addiction treatment. You’ll get one-on-one support and guidance from a licensed therapist as you address the underlying issues contributing to your addiction. The goal is to develop coping strategies to achieve and maintain recovery. It also provides a safe space to process any emotions that come up in group therapy or discuss issues you’re not ready to share in group. Our counselors are well-versed in a number of therapeutic approaches, so you get the type of treatment that is effective and keeps you engaged.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an essential and widely used form of treatment for addiction. It involves a small group coming together for sessions facilitated by a trained therapist or addiction counselors. Group therapy provides a safe space to process difficulties, build interpersonal skills, and learn healthy coping skills among peers in recovery. You’ll cover topics related to addiction and alcohol and drug misuse.

Group therapy can be conducted in various settings, such as inpatient or outpatient treatment programs, community centers, or support group meetings.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Heroin, prescription opioid addictions, and alcohol addiction can be particularly hard to overcome due to cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Other medications can ease withdrawal symptoms or help wean you off your drug of abuse. They are also used to help manage symptoms of mental health disorders in the case of co-occurring disorders. Your therapist will assist a clinician with MAT to ensure your recovery is safe and effective. Medication-assisted treatment is often combined with other psychotherapies and behavioral therapies.

Treatment medications commonly used in MAT include:

  • Naltrexone
  • Acamprosate
  • Suboxone
  • Disulfiram

Offered at: Arizona and California

12-Step Groups

Having supportive peers can be crucial to recovery. Twelve-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) instill accountability and a sense of community in sobriety. A sponsor can also be very helpful in early recovery. We’ll introduce you to 12-step groups or alternatives to 12-step groups if you don’t relate to the idea of a higher power.

Offered at: Arizona, California, and Nevada

Holistic and Alternative Addiction Therapies

Holistic therapies for addiction take a comprehensive approach to healing by going beyond your physical health to address your mind, body, and spirit. Many holistic therapies can reduce stress and anxiety, which are common triggers for substance use. By promoting relaxation, these therapies can help you manage your emotions and cravings. Holistic therapies often teach healthy coping strategies to deal with challenges and triggers without resorting to substance use.

These therapies focus on promoting well-being and may complement traditional addiction treatments. Holistic therapies are often parts of a larger addiction treatment plan, not standalone treatments.

Vogue Recovery Center offers the following holistic programming:

Art therapy
