Addiction Therapy at Discovery Transitions

Table Of Contents

Addiction therapy goes much deeper than simply treating the physical problem of chemical dependency. The causes of addiction run deep, and quitting for some amount of time does not amount to reliable recovery unless those underlying causes are being resolved.

If you are having difficulties in life and suspect that they are related to alcohol/drug use, or if your reliance on substances has come to the point where they dominate your life, Discovery Transitions’ addiction therapy program can help you.

Most people with substance abuse problems don’t acknowledge the fact until they’re in so deep they can’t turn things around by themselves.

Drug Addiction Treatment

When the consequences of addiction pile up and become unbearable, there are only two ways to go: continue trying to numb the pain of addiction, or find help through drug addiction therapy. The initial admission of defeat—asking for help—is a significant first step toward finding a real and lasting solution. Discovery Transitions’ outpatient treatment programs are tailored to each individual’s needs. Ultimately, all addictions are alike in nature, but they have superficial differences that may require specific treatment. Heroin addicts may have a different set of psychological reactions than meth users, but the treatment model is essentially the same for each. Likewise, cocaine addicts may have different lingering obsessions, but addiction therapy will gradually erase the superficial differences and reveal that addicts of various stripes are in fact fundamentally the same.

Similarly, alcoholism appears to be somewhat different from drug addiction, but in fact, it is simply addiction to the drug alcohol. At Discovery Transitions, alcohol addiction therapy includes counseling for addiction and the basics of treatment are consistent with those of drug addiction therapy.

What to Expect from Addiction Therapy

The basic components of drug addiction therapy are employed, and in concert, these components work to establish a foundation in recovery. A process of inner change is initiated and cultivated in the holistic approach to addiction therapy, resulting not only in freedom from drugs but also in a better, happier outlook and a more productive and effective life.

We employ individual counseling, group therapy, and a trauma-informed approach to resolve various co-occurring issues/stressors. Discovery Transitions implements emotional intelligence enhancement training, psycho-drama experiential group sessions, and neuro-feedback applications as a vehicle to empower each participant to navigate the holistic approach to relapse prevention and anger management coping skills that are proven to enhance each individual’s quality of life, gaining comfort-ability within their own reality. At Discovery Transitions, the 12-step process is encouraged and introduced as an approach to uncover, discover and discard lifelong beliefs that have produced inner discord at a spiritual level. Each participant is provided an opportunity to enter into a process that results in a transformed life. Spiritual experiences are viewed as personality changes sufficient to bring about recovery. The term recovery is to regain that which has been lost; we are here to assist in the restoration of the human spirit.

Chemical dependency is a threefold disease: biological, psychological, and sociological. In more technical terms, addiction is a brain disease in which the pleasure-reward circuit has been hijacked by the effect of substances that alter the brain’s delicate ecology. The addict’s brain seeks its new, altered equilibrium generating a desire for more pleasure (drugs). The individual equates drinking or using with survival. The addict’s mind makes up a story to justify the desire: It’s not that bad; I can handle this by myself; I’ll taper in the next few weeks; I’ll quit when I go on vacation, or move to another city . . . The excuses go on and on, but they are all simply justifications for a compulsion generated at a deeper level than the addict can access by willpower, and what looks like a “choice” to the addict is in fact a surrender to that compulsion.

Discovery Transitions’ addiction therapy program is designed to address addiction at its deepest level and restore the struggling individual to a new freedom and sense of purpose. Our successful alumni regularly testify to the fact that their lives have been dramatically changed for the better as a result of their experience in our program. Join us, and discover that recovery is the gift you’ve been longing for.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
