In recent decades, scientists have undertaken extensive research into the science of addiction and effective treatment methods.
We now have in-depth knowledge about the causes of addiction and how best to overcome it. Research shows a variety of treatment approaches have the best results when treating addiction, including behavioral therapies, experiential therapies, family therapy, and support groups.

What Is Involved in the Treatment Program?
Everyone’s experience of addiction is different, and effective treatment should be individualized to meet the varying needs of each client.
This typically involves different treatment approaches, including behavioral therapies, experiential therapies, medical help, and family and social support. Programs should treat any co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety, alongside addiction.
What Does Therapy Help With?
Treatment programs offer several types of therapy to help recovery from drug use and addiction.
One of the most common types is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT works by identifying thought patterns and behaviors that underlie addiction and developing the skills to overcome them. It breaks down unhealthy behavioral patterns, reinforces healthy behaviors, and helps develop coping strategies.
Therapy sessions can be individual, group, or with the whole family.
Individual counseling helps identify the causes of a client’s addiction and supports them through the process of finding resolutions. Their progress throughout the treatment allows their dedicated therapist to adapt their treatment where necessary to meet their individual needs.
Group therapy offers structure and support for individuals in recovery. Support groups are a source of inspiration, knowledge, and acceptance through shared experience. Group therapy can also take place through enriching experiential activities.
Family therapy explores how addiction affects the entire family and helps you develop the skills needed to support a family member and help them overcome their addiction.
