There are many different reasons to seek treatment including the obvious ones-depression, anxiety, a life crisis, loss of loved one, work issues & so on. For other individuals, it may be less clear-cut--maybe you seek to better understand yourself, change your relationship patterns or learn new ways of dealing with situations without repeating self-destructive behaviors. Or maybe you are struggling with a difficult pregnancy or loss of one or the life-changing world of becoming a mother and “baby blues” that don’t seem to go away.

Whether seeking relief from anxiety and depression, coping with trauma, or working to develop a better sense of who we are and what we want, we all seek therapy because we desire change. And change is difficult. It involves coming to terms with the past, shedding unhelpful habits and learning to function more effectively in the present.

Substance Use Therapists

How do substance and drug recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other clients in recovery; in outpatient programs, individuals reside at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff often also includes people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other methods.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for substance use reduce the amount of drugs they consume. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.

Are there specific medications for substance and drug use?

There are medications approved to treat substance use disorder—such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. These medications do help people cope with substance use as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone can help reduce cravings, methadone is an opioid medication used to treat severe pain, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.
