Therapy is an essential part of addiction treatment for many people. Cognitive behavioral therapy, family counseling, and other therapy approaches can help people recovering from addiction resist ongoing and nearly irresistible urges to relapse. Psychotherapy can also treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to prescription drug abuse.
Addictions of any kind especially substance abuse are more than a physical dependence. Even after detox, when physical dependence has resolved, addicts are at high risk for relapse. Relapse is often triggered by psychological and social factors such as stress, especially sudden life stresses and social networks, like spending time with friends who continue to use substances.
We can help you to develop the necessary coping skills and provide the support needed to journey on the road after recovery.
