Avila Heights Recovery
Addiction Recovery Therapies
Customized, Evidence-based and Cutting-Edge Addiction Therapies
We work with our clients to develop an evidence-based and clinically appropriate mix of innovative and effective addiction recovery therapies to heal alcohol or substance abuse from the inside out. At Avila Heights Recovery, your treatment plan is as individual as you are.
Each of our clients receives an individualized treatment plan. Our addiction recovery therapies may include a mix of the following.
Addiction has its roots in different experiences for each individual. Getting to the root of the triggers and stressors of addiction is key to understanding the best way to move forward.
Individual therapy is a safe space that allows clients to explore the deep emotional causes of addiction. And from understanding comes compassion for self. Self-love and awareness are key to addiction recovery.
Working with discreet professionals allows our clients to go deep within, and resolve the puzzle of addiction from inside outwards. Multiple weekly sessions with your primary therapist will guide you through that process.
It is extremely helpful to understand that while each individual must progress through the recovery process on their own – you are not alone on the road to recovery. Group therapy is a space to share experiences, feel heard – and know that everything you say or hear is private and confidential.
Having a safe space to reflect on personal experience – with no judgment or worry – is essential to the recovery process. With the variety of groups and activities at Avila Heights Recovery, our clients find strength in connecting with people going through a similar experience.
It is important in addiction recovery to find strength in knowing you are understood by others. And while some individuals may be ahead in the recovery process – it is reassuring to know it is possible to find healing.
As a cutting-edge treatment center, psychotherapy at Avila Heights Recovery is key to the addiction recovery process and has been used for years to treat addiction.
Cognitive therapy (and more) seek to find and heal the root causes of addiction. Alcohol or substance abuse and addiction are often the result of trauma or psychological problems that have not been addressed.
Understanding and working with the root causes of addiction help in sustaining recovery and sobriety long-term.
Addressing any mental and emotional difficulties also help in avoiding a relapse. Rather than only treating the symptoms – understanding the root cause of the addiction is an essential element for each individual in addiction recovery.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched and effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and PTSD symptoms. EMDR therapy is a psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma, anxiety, depression, distressing life experiences, or panic disorders.
Ongoing research supports positive clinical outcomes showing EMDR therapy as a helpful treatment for disorders such as anxiety, depression, OCD, chronic pain, addictions, and other distressing life experiences (Maxfield, 2019).
EDMR allows the brain to heal by resolving unprocessed life events that had an important impact. The EMDR therapy method goes beyond simply talking about whatever needs to be sorted out.
