Treatment at Rising Ridge Recovery involves addiction treatment such as identifying triggers, cravings, intrinsic & extrinsic reasons for use, and motivators to avoid relapse, and Relapse Prevention Planning, including aftercare planning, psycho-education groups that teach about how alcohol, drugs, and addiction affect and work inside the brain.
Treatment usually involves some form of trauma, and at Rising Ridge, we include trauma-informed treatment and how trauma has a significant part of why many use and become addicted to substances.
Treatment also incorporates Mental Health and co-occurring disorders such as Depression, Anxiety, or areas of lack of assertiveness or struggles with impulse control, sometimes due to Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), or accidents where pain pills turned to addiction while still having long-term pain injuries present and still occurring.
Rising Ridge Recovery utilizes the best evidence-based treatment modalities such as:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT, is a form of psychological intervention in which the therapist works to identify thoughts or actions that clients believe are negative. Therapists will work to reframe the language that surrounds these thoughts so that clients are not as hard on themselves or as fearful of these thoughts.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most common and effective forms of talk therapy in which therapists work with clients to identify harmful thought patterns. After identifying these, clients will learn to alter their thought processes to create long-term behavioral change. CBT is considered the “gold standard” of talk therapy and has been proven effective for both addiction treatment and mental health treatment.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a subset of CBT and works by helping clients learn to accept themselves as well as develop healthier behaviors that are conducive with long-term sobriety. It is a common addiction treatment method and has proven to be effective in helping establish and continue sobriety.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a type of psychotherapy that involves a combination of cognitive therapy, meditation, and the cultivation of a present-oriented, non-judgmental attitude called “mindfulness.”
Neurofeedback & EEG Biofeedback Therapy
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, uses technological devices to collect information about the brain through brain wave readings. At a minimum, neurofeedback relies on the use of a monitoring device, electronic sensors, and software that can read the incoming brain wave data. This data, in turn, creates brain maps. An expert trained in neurofeedback can then develop an understanding as to which neurological pathways have become deregulated in a client, such as a person recovering from drug addiction.
Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that is centered on increasing a person’s awareness, freedom, and self-direction. It’s a form of therapy that focuses on the present moment rather than past experiences. Gestalt therapy is based on the idea that people are influenced by their present environment
EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Rising Ridge uses state-of-the-art methodologies to treat unresolved emotional trauma. One of these methods is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an effective therapy for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other past trauma. Talk therapy alone is not enough to resolve the chronic symptoms left behind by the survival reaction to trauma. Nearly all patients who receive EMDR therapy report greater general wellness and significant decreases in trauma-related symptoms.
Recreational therapy for addiction consists of treatment using a wide variety of activities like music, art, horseback riding, exercise, yoga, and much more. These activities are known to help improve the physical and emotional well-being of patients. When these services are offered under the care and supervision of a certified therapist, recreational therapy is an effective form of supplemental treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.
Behavioral Group Therapy
Group therapy is a specific form of counseling that is used to treat psychological disorders including substance abuse and addiction.
It typically involves regular sessions where one or more therapists work with several individuals who are being treated for the same health issue.
Many people benefit from peer support in group therapy.
