Treatment Therapies Offered At Oasis
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is a form of therapy that focuses on altering thought processes and behavioral patterns while adapting to new, healthier ways of thinking. This therapy treats shame associated with addiction and teaches individuals how to psychologically alter their behavioral dysfunction. By rewiring cognitive behavior, individuals are prepared to adopt healthy coping strategies, therefore improving emotional reactions and thought patterns.
Adventure therapy can come in many forms, but in general, it is the incorporation of fun activities, including outdoor excursions and group outings, to help facilitate the therapeutic process through supportive, real-life situations. The benefits of adventure and experiential therapy include opportunities for personal development through confidence-building, communication and interpersonal skills, teamwork, self-reflection, and more
Individual therapy aims to locate the underlying causes of addiction and addresses negative behaviors so that recovery skills may be developed. Some psychological aspects of addiction that may be too personal to discuss in group settings, such as severe trauma, are addressed in an individualized therapy setting, forming mutual trust between the client and therapist while allowing the therapist to develop custom approaches specific to the client’s individual needs.
An isolating disease, addiction drives individuals away from personal relationships due to fear of judgment, guilt, and shame. Group therapy allows clients to build a community of support and accountability. By sharing personal struggles with others, clients learn that they are not alone on their journey towards recovery. Discovering new ways of communication and effective relationship building is essential in healing and recovery.
At Oasis, our family counseling and support groups are facilitated by our highly-trained clinical staff. Family counseling provides guidance, community, educational sessions, and processing space for family members of our addiction treatment program clients. Addiction is a family disease, meaning the impact of addiction not only affects the individual suffering from substance abuse but the family involved as well.
Art therapy is also known to be useful as an outlet for working through trauma which is common among those who have had issues with substance abuse and addiction. Developing healthy ways of self-expression is one of the goals of this form of therapy. Artistic expression allows people to explore personal experiences, challenges, and repressed trauma. Clients will be encouraged to develop healthier perspectives, reflect, and articulate feelings and emotions wrapped up in their personal history of addiction.
Psychotherapy is an effective therapy option implemented into our program here at Oasis. It can help individuals improve a broad variety of mental & emotional difficulties commonly associated with substance abuse. By eliminating troubling symptoms many addicts develop while in active addiction, psychotherapy options such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can positively impact an individuals well-being.
Mindfulness Based Therapy
A mindfulness-based approach to addiction recovery treats the whole person, not just the substance abuse. Mindfulness has many health benefits, and has been proven to significantly reduce anxiety, stress reactivity, distraction, and depression, all of which can be seen as roadblocks to recovery. Mindfulness has been clinically proven to increase self-compassion, focus, cognition, heart and immune system health, rest, resilience, feelings of connection, sense of belonging, and more.
Equine therapy, also known as Equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a therapeutic modality that incorporates horses into the therapeutic process. Equine therapy is facilitated by trained professionals to ensure safety. Interaction with the horses is flexible and can be adjusted for the comfort level of the client. Exercises with the horses may include haltering, leading, and grooming the horses.
