Treatment Therapies

Just as there are many different reasons for addiction, there are many types of varying therapy treatments to help with addiction recovery. At SCAC, we recognize this and offer a broad range of therapeutic modalities to help you or your loved one get on the path to living a healthy and prosperous life.

The first step to recovery is detoxification and overcoming the initial withdrawal of substance addiction.  This is very much a physical process, that rids the body of drugs and alcohol, and sets a foundation for recovery. This is when recovery from addiction can truly begin, and when we work with the patient to develop a treatment and therapy plan that is right for them.

Therapy Types


At SCAC, we have experts in several therapy modalities, ready to help you or your loved one. While each recovery plan is different, we offer the following therapy types –

Individual and Group Therapy

At SCAC, we recognize the value in both individual and group therapy treatment. Our goal in all of our therapy treatments is to teach the patient a set of skills to help them deal with the elements of life that lead them to addiction.  Our therapists are trained and routinely attend continuing education classes and seminars to serve our patients better.

Individual therapy consists of one on one sessions with a therapist, offering intimate insight into the addiction recovery process.  These sessions aid in the development of a personal treatment plan, increasing the chances of successful, lifelong rehabilitation.

Group therapy focuses on being a place where the patients can feel a sense of community and offers a place where addicts can learn that others deal with many of the same struggle that they do. For a patient, knowing they are not alone in their journey can be a great comfort.

Family Therapy

Addiction is a disease that doesn’t only hurt the addict, but it also hurts their loved ones. Addiction can often tear families apart, creating a divide between the addict and their loved ones. At SCAC, we provide support for both addicts and their families, offering many types of therapy that can help bridge that gap, and repair damaged relationships.

We work hard to help educate and support the families of our patients!

EMDR

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a type of therapy that can assist addicts in confronting the events in their life that lead them to addiction. The treatment can be extremely effective, and our EMDR therapists are highly trained in using this technique to help work through these past events, giving the addict a clearer sense of self, and allowing them to develop the skills needed to deal with these kinds of life events.

CBT and DBT

CBT and DBT are behavioral therapy treatments that help address the mental illness issues that are often tied to substance abuse.  The goal of both DBT and CBT is similar, in that the therapy aims to help shape the thoughts and responses of an addict’s mind, especially in situations that may trigger one’s addiction or mental health issues.  Through therapy and exercises, these treatment types can help build the skills needed for enjoying a successful, sober life, as well as avoiding relapse.

Pharmacotherapy

Addiction recovery requires a firm commitment from the patient, however, sometimes that commitment involves the aid of pharmaceuticals to help it succeed. Other times, having an addict quit their substance immediately could cause major health problems tied to the withdrawal. Pharmacotherapy is the use of prescription medications in the recovery process. This could include Methadone, Nalltrexone, or other medications, depending on the individual treatment plan.

Holistic Therapy

Addiction is often something that goes beyond a physical dependency. It’s effect on one’s mind, and spirit can be extremely damaging. At SCAC, we believe in treating the patient as a whole, helping them with more than just standard patient-doctor therapy sessions.

At SCAC, we offer a variety of holistic options, including yoga, meditation, and physical fitness classes. These practices help alleviate the stress that withdrawal and addiction recovery can place on the body, as well as offers a positive outlet for stress.

In addition to our meditation, yoga, and other exercise classes, we also offer acupuncture and massage, at an additional cost to the patient. The addition of these therapeutic treatments can significantly aid in the physical recovery from withdrawal.

Acupuncture Therapy

At SCAC we offer a blended approach to recovery, and if you choose, we offer both acupuncture and massage therapy for you and your loved ones. These treatments come at a nominal fee and are not included in standard recovery treatment. The addition of these can make a tremendous positive impact on the wellness of our patient’s mind, and body.

Animal Assisted Therapy

While traditional therapy treatments can be extremely effective, at SCAC, we go above and beyond to make sure our patients have the best chance for a successful recovery.  Animal-assisted therapy can play a significant role in helping an addict develop a positive emotional connection, as well as a sense of responsibility.

There are many specific types of animal-assisted therapy, and our staff is fully licensed and trained to help you or your loved one find success in recovery, with the help of animals.5

Music Assisted Therapy

SCAC offers therapy that utilizes music as a tool for healing. Our certified music therapists’ help addicts find ways to use song to both cope with addiction and connect to positive emotions and feelings. Beyond listening to music, our therapy program extends into the use of playing instruments, songwriting, and dance movement. Music therapy can be a great tool in recovery.

No Two Patient’s Therapy Treatment Is Identical


At SCAC, we have one goal in mind, and that is a helping our patient’s return to a sober, healthy, prosperous life through a customized treatment plan. We work with you or your loved ones to find the exact types of treatments and therapies to aid in recovery. With the numerous types of therapy that our trained professionals offer, there is sure to be a plan that works for you or your loved one.
