Individual & Family Therapy

Individual Therapy: Therapy is for people who want to improve their quality of life. We provide this service in the home to help the person served feel safe and comfortable. Therapy can provide new insights and help enhance personal development for the individual. Sometimes you just need a friendly ear to listen, let us be that person for you.

Therapy can help you:

  • Develop new social skills

  • Enhance old social skills

  • Gain insight into personal behavior patterns

  • Discover new ways to solve problems

  • Change overall quality of life

Family Therapy: Every family is a unique social structure with varying communication patterns. This structure is shaped by the cultural values of each family member, including extended members (grandparents, aunts, or uncles), the personal belief system of each member, and individual personalities of those within the family. Family therapy is approached differently than individual therapy in that it must take all these different values and beliefs into account in order for the therapist to provide the best possible care while remaining sensitive to cultural values. One family member’s actions can greatly affect the entire family.

Family therapy can help the family:

  • Learn new communication patterns

  • Enhance family social interactions

Alcohol & Drug Therapy

There are many reasons people become addicted to alcohol or drugs. Sometimes it is used as a coping mechanism because of a stressful circumstance, or there may be a family history of substance abuse. Once someone becomes addicted the need shifts from not only a psychological one, but to a physiological one, making it more difficult for a person to quit using the substance. However, with therapy, there is hope.

The strategies used will vary from person to person since each person is unique in their addiction and their cause. Therapists can help people who are addicted work towards sobriety by exploring the cause for their addiction and incorporate new coping strategies.

Some possible signs of addiction:

  • Requiring the substance throughout the day

  • Seeking the company of other users, cutting off ties with once close friends or family members

  • Avoiding or diminished interest in usual activities

  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the substance

  • Hiding use from family and friends

  • Failure to meet social, work, or academic obligations.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

(CBT) According to Module II of the Addiction Counseling Theories, Practices, and Skills, 10th ed: “Cognitive behavioral therapy is a method of counseling that primarily focuses on correcting thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that lead to dysfunction by simultaneously restructuring the client’s automatic thoughts and learning new behaviors.”

The idea behind CBT is not to answer “Why does a person do what they do?” but to ask “What keeps them doing it?” and “How can they change?
