Oakvine Recovery Center approaches therapy for each patient with a single goal: discovering the context of your condition to create a truly personalized plan for making you better. Every person has unique reasons for using substances, feeling depressed, or experiencing trauma. Even more, your specific reaction is unique to you, as are the effects on your mental and physical health as well as your relationships, career, school, or other parts of your life. There is simply no one-size-fits-all treatment to such serious conditions.
However, we do follow industry best practices for treating substance use and mental health disorders, and our skilled therapists are experienced in each of the following treatments. We look forward to learning about how we can best help you.
Evidence-based Therapies We Offer
Oakvine will consider the following therapies based on what we learn about your unique condition:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a type of psychotherapy, or talk therapy, through which we help our patients identify negative ways of thinking and transform them into positive responses. First, we help identify the specific situations, people, or other influences that trigger the negative behaviors you want to solve. Then we help you learn how to cope with these triggers and respond in more beneficial ways that you can use going forward. CBT can help recovery for a number of conditions.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). This behavioral therapy can help any patient suffering from destructive mental health problems, especially those at higher risk of dangerous actions. It is particularly helpful for patients who have trouble regulating their emotions by addressing the conflict between accepting yourself and affecting change. Whether we decide the best fit is individual therapy sessions, group sessions, or phone sessions, we focus on first learning mindfulness to live in the moment. Next we teach techniques for managing stressful situations, interpersonal effectiveness in relationships, and more effectively addressing powerful emotions.
- Mindfulness Therapy. We believe that becoming more mindful of both your present moment and your thoughts and feelings can prepare you to choose the ones that work best in your life. Also known as mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs), mindfulness therapy can include types of meditation and techniques to cultivate positive emotions. We often pair this with cognitive behavioral therapy.
- Self-help Groups. Oakvine considers these groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, as an important continuing step to lifelong abstinence and recovery. As we build support groups in our facility, we will also help you find the right groups to continue growing and thriving after our program.
- Trauma-Informed Care. For traumatic conditions such as PTSD, trauma-informed care may be the right approach. EMDR is one example of a treatment modality that we utilize. For patients we treat with this therapy, we carefully consider the nature of your trauma and avoid any practices that may inadvertently cause re-traumatization. Instead, we build an empathetic, caring environment through the five practices of safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment.
- Brain Mapping. Brain mapping is a new non-invasive diagnostic test that enables our clinicians to take a look inside the brain of an individual with a substance use disorder to see the areas of cognitive functioning that need to be improved. The system uses computer technology to map out the brain and then address locations that need to be worked on through targeted therapies. Brain Mapping relies heavily on specialized equipment, so it can’t be done in a traditional treatment facility, but is available on-site at Oakvine.
- Motivational Interviewing. Through this therapy, our skilled counselors help you identify harmful behaviors by asking relevant questions and letting you talk about them. The goal is for the patient to recognize the problem by addressing it out loud so they can build motivation to change, as well as commit to change through words.
- Family Therapy. Many of the conditions we treat at Oakvine have caused rifts in familial relationships. If that’s the case, our counselors may ask family members to join us for group sessions to address the problems directly and sensitively. Through this short-term therapy, we can help improve communications, resolve conflicts, and ultimately, rebuild these important relationships.
- Co-occurring Disorders Treatment. Also known as Dual Diagnosis Disorder, this therapy is for patients for whom a substance use disorder is also tied to a mental health condition. Many patients receive treatment elsewhere for one of these disorders—going so far as forcing a patient to one or the other—but Oakvine takes an integrated approach. We welcome these patients and may consider individual therapy, peer groups, family education, holistic therapies, and ongoing support programs.
