Therapies We Use

The addiction counseling team at Del Arroyo Recovery Center is trained in evidence-based talk therapy techniques. There are many types of talk therapy, each with its own benefits. Our team will work closely with you to discover which therapies are most helpful for you.

Here are some of the talk therapy approaches we use:

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

This structured, goal-oriented form of talk therapy helps you learn to identify and reevaluate negative thought patterns that lead to unhealthy behavior patterns.

Through CBT you learn to recognize negative or distorted thoughts and replace them with more accurate, balanced ones. The therapist will also help you identify specific behaviors that may be contributing to your substance abuse and replace them with more adaptive ones.

CBT is one of the most popular forms of talk therapy, in large part because it has been shown to help with a wide range of problems, from substance use disorders to depression to disordered eating, and even severe mental illness.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy is a type of talk therapy with roots in CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). It is based on the philosophy that opposing (“dialectical”) ideas can both be true, and that the truth often lies somewhere in the middle.

DBT helps you focus on healthier ways to cope with intense, negative emotions. It’s especially helpful for those who have difficulty regulating and managing their emotions. DBT is used in both one-on-one therapy sessions and in group settings.

Trauma therapy

Trauma therapy (also known as trauma-focused therapy) is a form of talk therapy designed to help a person manage the impact of a traumatic event(s) they have experienced.

Therapists use a range of psychotherapy techniques to help people manage trauma, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), somatic (body-centered) therapy, and others.

Trauma therapy can help reduce the triggers and symptoms of PTSD. Your therapist will work with you to determine which approaches are most helpful for you.

Motivational therapy (MT)

Motivation can be a strong predictor of success in long-term recovery. Motivational therapy helps people work through feelings of ambivalence about changing their behavior.

During motivational therapy, your therapist will work collaboratively with you to develop a plan of action to help you maintain motivation to stay sober. The therapist may use motivational interviewing during sessions, a technique that helps you identify your strengths and tap into your intrinsic power to make positive change. 

Motivational interviewing (MI)

Motivational interviewing is a specific technique based in part on the principles of motivational therapy. It is designed to help you tap into your intrinsic motivation for change. In a non-confrontational and empathic way, the therapist helps you explore the gap between your current behavior and your goals or values.

Motivational interviewing is designed to empower you by helping you see your strengths, autonomy, and ability to create positive change.
