How do Specialty Therapies Work?

At Avatar Residential Detox Center, we believe that alternative types of therapies are very effective in treating drug addiction, alcohol addiction, and unhealthy behaviors. We intertwine specialty therapies with our substance abuse treatment programs to assist the recovery of a client through overall well-being and stress management.

Some of the widespread specialty addiction therapies include:

12-Step Facilitation: The 12- Step Process is one of the most widely used as well as most effective alcohol and drug recovery therapy which was introduced by Alcoholics Anonymous. It involves a process where an individual heals through interaction with a peer support group which is overcoming similar addictions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT for Substance Abuse is an effective method often used with other detox treatments for addiction recovery. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is utilized for treating co-occurring disorders as well as for developing coping mechanisms and changing maladaptive behaviors in patients.
There are many more behavioral therapies used for addiction treatment.

Standard therapy is often complemented with alternative therapies such as:

Yoga: Yoga proves immensely helpful in stress reduction, relieving physical tension, creating self-awareness, and making an individual spiritually, physically, and mentally fit.

Animal Assisted Therapy: Research says that Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) helps patients stay in treatment and finish it, as well as helps them develop their individual persona, and step out of a self-deprecating mindset.
