Psychotherapy Program

Psychotherapy is a broad term, but it refers to any kind of therapy that uses psychological means instead of medical or pharmacological means. Another way to describe this form of addiction treatment therapy is talk therapy since talking is often the main component of treatment. In women’s addiction treatment programs, psychotherapeutic approaches can be incredibly helpful.

Etta is by far the best house manager I have ever had. She is one of the most hard working females I have ever met in my life. I love Etta.

When I prioritize the reasons that today I am 240 days sober!! I list God first & Soledad 2nd! & That is an absolute fact. My initial move to a sober living in California did not include Soledad but how grateful i am that God had a different plan. From the moment I was picked up at the airport I knew I was in the right place. The therapists, administrative staff, & house & day managers are absolutely amazing & felt more like FAMILY than employees of Soledad & now I am also grateful to Soledad because I am an employee as well!! The support I received whether it was therapeutic, Drs appointments, insurance or Short term disability assistance was phenomenal & readily given. I always FELT KELLY MATTERED which is something we don't feel from the world while on active addiction. I will end with this: if you have reached the point of Desperation due to your addiction & are ready to start living a healthy life as we were all meant to then SOLEDAD Treatment is exactly who & where you should be. GOD BLESS SOLEDAD & THE STAFF

I finally found a place where I could be safe. My entire life I've been searching for stability, unconditional love and a chance to have my own identity. I found that here at Soledad House. It wasn't easy and I stood in my own way a lot. The people at Soledad never gave up on me but they didn't baby me either. They let me know daily that I was worthy of living the life I had always imagined. They helped me to begin looking at my trauma and the shame around it. At Soledad House I am surrounded by the most powerful women who understand the seriousness of this disease and the courage it takes to fight it. Without this program I don't think I would be here right now. I am eternally grateful for Soledad House and the women on this journey with me. If you are looking for a program for you or someone else, please look into this one!

I wish I had heard of Soledad earlier. It would’ve cut down a lot on my time spent in treatment if I had gotten to go straight to such an organized, segmented program that actually helps you set up for discharge and begin your life outside of treatment. Best treatment facility I’ve been to.

I will have 4 years of sobriety in a few months. I owe so much of that to Soledad. I will forever be grateful for my time there. No recovery program is perfect, but I can confidently say that they genuinely care about every woman that walks through their doors.

After 70 days of treatment from my previous treatment center, I decided to come to Soledad House. Let me tell you... best decision I ever made in a lifetime. What Soledad has instilled in me are things I will always carry in my recovery. The staff, counselors, doctors and admin make this place what it is. The homes are beautiful and the support I have received from the girls at this program will last a lifetime. I am almost 6 months sober now and owe it to this place. They also offer aftercare, which I am going to, and sober living as well. I dont think I would have come as far as I am now in my recovery if it was not for Soledad House. If you are ready for chance of a life changing experience , Soledad House is the place for you. THANK YOU SOLEDAD!

Treating Addiction With Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy is one of the most common addiction treatment methods. The goal of behavioral therapy is to change negative behaviors into positive ones. There are a variety of different negative behaviors associated with addiction.

Behavioral therapy dives into why patients act the way that they do. It seeks to establish new habits that lead away from substance abuse and toward sobriety. Often, addiction therapists for women can help patients uncover the motivation for their unhealthy behaviors. This may pave the way for issue resolution.

In addiction recovery, establishing a routine can be incredibly helpful. Behavioral therapy makes that easier to do, helping patients achieve and then maintain their sobriety for a lifetime.

Treating Addiction With Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

If behavioral therapy seeks to change behaviors, then cognitive therapy seeks to change the way that patients think. Many people who struggle with addiction also struggle to regulate their emotions. Black and white thinking is common, but it’s also dangerous.

Black and white thinking is a condition where individuals struggle to see the middle ground. If they make a small mistake, everything feels like a disaster. This thinking is especially problematic when addiction is an issue. Just because there’s a small hiccup in recovery, it doesn’t mean that relapse is inevitable.

Cognitive thinking is a form of psychotherapy that addresses that negative black and white thinking. Through talk therapy, patients can discuss their innermost thoughts, and address them rationally. Often, talking about them out loud reveals that the roots of these thoughts are in emotion rather than truth.

Treating Addiction With a Holistic Approach to Psychotherapy

Often, the best way to address addiction is with a comprehensive approach. Psychotherapy is the basis for many addiction treatment methods. What is psychotherapy? Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR therapy, is one popular example. This is a non-pharmacological treatment method that helps patients resolve a history of trauma. Patients think of a troubling part of their past, reliving the situation. Then, they perform rapid eye movements to minimize the intensity and power of the memory.
EMDR is just one of the many holistic and alternative therapies that can aid recovery. Other holistic treatment methods might include:

Group Therapy At Our Recovery Center

Group therapy is another popular form of addiction treatment therapy. As the name suggests, group therapy is a group of patients working with a therapist or counselor. Group therapy can reduce feelings of isolation and allow patients to communicate and share experiences with one another.

Patients might feel lonely during addiction recovery. By participating in group therapy, patients can see how many other people are going through a similar situation. Group therapy can also allow for sharing in a judgment-free zone.

Family Therapy At Our San Diego Rehab Center

Addiction programs can also include family therapy. This involves the whole family. Patients can start to rebuild relationships with their loved ones. Since addiction can damage relationships, this therapy is incredibly helpful.

Family therapy also helps family members recover. Even if they aren’t struggling with addiction, they often struggle with the stress of having a loved one with this disease. Therapy can help them recover safely, manage stress in a healthy way, and learn how to help rather than enable in the future.

Psychotherapy treatment is an important part of addiction recovery. At Soledad House in San Diego, California, it’s part of a comprehensive recovery plan. Call 866.314.3222 to begin your journey to lifelong sobriety.
