Empowering Clients to Move Forward with Evidence-Based Addiction Counseling and Therapies
Whether a patient is part of our intensive treatment or is participating in our outpatient program, he/she is bound to go through some type of substance abuse counseling services or psychotherapy. Individual one-on-one counseling sessions are inevitable at the start of every substance abuse treatment program. Addiction specialists or a certified drug and alcohol abuse counselor often intervene at the request of family members who are worried about their loved ones. Finding the best abstinence-based substance abuse counseling Arizona offers is crucial for the patient’s initial success in overcoming drug or alcohol abuse.
On the other hand, psychotherapy is vital for creating room for change. Various types of psychotherapy can help the patient feel safe and comfortable in his own skin and feel like they have a life worth living. Others provide positive coping mechanisms, allowing the patient to handle and re-process stressful situations in a healthy manner.
Here at Fountain Hills Recovery, we have a multi-disciplinary approach to treating addiction. Our substance abuse treatment center in Arizona features a variety of holistic therapies and alternative methods to help you or your loved one take back control and reach total wellness. While our alternative methods have shown to be very useful, traditional addiction counseling and various types of psychotherapy are still the backbones of our programs.
CBT, DBT and EMDR Therapy
Finding the motivation for change after a long history of substance abuse is borderline impossible without professional help. The lifestyle of alcohol and drug abuse goes hand in hand with a negative mindset, so in order to spark the need for change, we need to address the mindset first. This can be done through various forms of cognitive behavioral therapies.
For instance, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Behavioral Modification Therapy have shown excellent results in reshaping destructive behaviors into more productive ones. DBT, in particular, has helped patients who lack interpersonal skills and need to rebuild family relationships.
Those who experienced trauma from past events in their lives have had tremendous success by participating in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). Unresolved, trauma-related issues, even from the person’s childhood, can easily lead to drug and alcohol abuse in the future. Addressing these issues simultaneously while trying to treat addiction is essential for preventing relapse.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are psychotherapy and individual counseling crucial during addiction treatment?
Both psychotherapy and one-on-one counseling play integral roles in substance abuse treatment. Individual sessions with a certified drug and alcohol counselor are vital to the process and critical during the initial weeks of treatment. Oftentimes, counseling sessions are sought out due to concerns loved ones have about the individual. These sessions offer personalized support and guidance. By contrast, psychotherapy is designed to provoke transformation through various evidence-based methodologies. These methodologies can help the patient in several ways, such as building self-confidence and direction, developing coping mechanisms and teaching stress management techniques. Counseling and psychotherapy work concurrently to address the multifaceted emotional and mental challenges of addiction, which creates a path to recovery.
How are various approaches used at Fountain Hills Recovery to treat addiction?
We take a multidisciplinary addiction-treatment approach that integrates holistic therapies and evidence-based addiction counseling services. Alternative treatment methods can be effective for addiction. However, traditional psychotherapy and addiction counseling are fundamental components. Fountain Hills utilizes various therapeutic approaches, including Individual and Group Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Behavioral Modification Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Therapeutic Processing Group Therapy and PsychoEducational Group Therapy. Each of these targets certain aspects of addiction, such as rebuilding relationships, correcting negative behaviors and addressing trauma. For example, CBT helps reshape the mindsets and thought processes of addiction, while EDMR may be valuable for addressing trauma. This comprehensive plan of treatment creates a client-centered approach most likely to lead to full recovery.
Why is recovery in the Phoenix area ideal?
Phoenix is an excellent spot for addiction recovery. Its attractive landscape, sunny weather and easy accessibility make it practical and welcoming. The natural surroundings provide opportunities for outdoor activities and simply relaxing, which can be helpful for reducing stress. Phoenix’s warm and dry climate positively impacts mood, particularly for those dealing with co-occurring mental health conditions. The city’s well-connected transportation, including a major airport and highways, ensures that people from across the country can easily access our recovery services. It’s a straightforward and convenient choice for those seeking effective and accessible addiction recovery in a supportive environment.
What are the risks of leaving addiction untreated?
Untreated addiction can have profoundly negative consequences. Physically, addiction can lead to severe health consequences, including the risk of certain diseases and the threat of overdose, especially with intravenous drug use. Mentally, addiction threatens overall well-being and leads to depression, anxiety and severe stress. Untreated addiction also takes a toll on personal relationships. As the substance becomes the prominent focus, financial difficulties are also common, as going to work and paying bills can take a backseat. The longer addiction is an issue, the more difficult it can be to achieve sobriety. Intervention as early as possible is critical for achieving a stable, sober future.
How does life improve with addiction therapy?
Addiction treatment can bring about significant positive improvements. Working with a certified substance abuse counselor and undergoing psychotherapy provides you with the tools necessary to overcome addiction and understand you are not alone with your challenges. Treatment can put you back in the driver’s seat of your life, help you mend damaged social connections and even rebuild your emotional and physical health. Many individuals are reminded they have a life worth living outside of addiction, but they also gain a deeper understanding of their addiction. In turn, they gain a new sense of self-confidence and life purpose and see that a more rewarding life is within their reach. All in all, treatment sets the stage for a life free from addiction where personal growth and a worthy life with meaningful goals and connections are possible.
