  • Substance Abuse

    Counseling can be provided at the individual or group level. Individual counseling often focuses on reducing or stopping substance use, skill building, adherence to a recovery plan, and social, family, and professional/educational outcomes. Group counseling is often used in addition to individual counseling to provide social reinforcement for pursuit of recovery.

    Counselors provide a variety of services to people in treatment for substance use disorders including assessment, treatment planning, and counseling. These professionals provide a variety of therapies. Some common therapies include:

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches individuals in treatment to recognize and stop negative patterns of thinking and behavior. For instance, cognitive-behavioral therapy might help a person be aware of the stressors, situations, and feelings that lead to substance use so that the person can avoid them or act differently when they occur.

    Contingency management is designed to provide incentives to reinforce positive behaviors, such as remaining abstinent from substance use.

    Motivational enhancement therapy helps people with substance use disorders to build motivation and commit to specific plans to engage in treatment and seek recovery. It is often used early in the process to engage people in treatment.

    12-step facilitation therapy seeks to guide and support engagement in 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

    Some forms of counseling are tailored to specific populations. For instance, young people need a different set of treatment services to guide them towards recovery. Treatments for youth often involve a family component. We work with youth to build skills and support engagement in positive activities.

    In wellness therapy, an individuals mental, nutritional, physical, environmental, and self-care domains are brought into focus. Through a detailed and thorough assessment, a therapist is able to pin point sources of life stress and create a structured approach to resolving these issues. Holistic Psychotherapy is a technique used in individual, couple and family therapy session formats. The use of meditation, creative arts, nutritional supplementation, and exercise can be used in conjunction with other holistic treatments such as massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic to promote overall health and wellness. Our Cold Spring office has practitioners that offer these holistic treatments on site.
