Cirque Lodge > Treatment > Psychoeducation

Why can’t I stop drinking?

Why do I need these drugs to get through the day? To someone struggling with addiction, the answers to these questions can be the difference between life and death. At Cirque Lodge, part of our addiction treatment program is to provide these answers to residents of our facility

and to teach them what they need to know about the disease of addiction. This is done through individual and group therapies, but it is also found through a series of psychoeducation lectures and workshops. We believe that it takes therapeutic, educational, and active measures in a rehabilitation center to obtain an early and successful recovery.

What is Psychoeducation?

What is Psychoeducation?

Psychoeducation refers to the method of educating individuals who are faced with substance abuse disorders, co-occurring mental health disorders, and dual diagnoses.

It is typically used in conjunction with other approaches of group-based therapies and cognitive-behavioral treatments. The intention of this effort is to provide individuals struggling with addictions the knowledge needed to better understand their malady and the empowerment needed to cope with it.

Typically psychoeducation elements involve evidence-based research and cover a broad spectrum of topics. It provides a more thorough understanding of the nature of addiction and the disease model. The workshops also teach in-depth about the biology, psychology, and recovery process of this disease. Great effort is also taken to instruct about the reality of relapse and the methods of prevention that are available.

At Cirque Lodge, we strive to provide our residents with the type of engaging lectures and workshops that they can apply to their recovery. When all is said and done, we want them to be experts at their disease and any other mental health disorders they may be diagnosed with. When the treatment is completed, this knowledge can be an invaluable tool for coping and continuing on in the recovery process. Even when relapse occurs, it is our hope that alumni will have an understanding of what needs to be done next to get back on the path of sobriety.

Education in Treatment

Education in Treatment

We continually striving to provide our residents with the finest psychoeducation and instructional support to promote their recovery from addiction.

Members of our sophisticated alcohol and drug rehab staff impart their wisdom to residents through a series of group-based lectures and workshops. We also have many professional relationships with respected individuals in the field of addiction treatment. Visiting professionals provide presentations and further education to residents regarding substance abuse treatment and recovery. Our workshops incorporate the spoken word, presentations, and videos to enhance the learning experience.

We believe at Cirque Lodge we do not have an equal in our industry when it comes to the educational lectures that are provided during Family Week. Our family piece is an integral aspect of our alcohol treatment and drug treatment program. Each day is designated for a different lecture/workshop and family and marriage counseling sessions. The lectures help to best teach the family what they need to know to more fully assist a loved one in recovery. Family members learn more about the disease and nature of addiction, enabling, communication, self-care, and the role of the 12-step program in the process. By the end of the week family members have a much better understanding of how to move forward with their loved ones.

Effective Addiction Treatment Program

Effective Addiction Treatment Program

The psychoeducation element to the Cirque experience is just one part of an involved and effective treatment process.

The therapeutic effort combines education with cognitive-behavioral therapies, individual counseling, experiential therapies, and an introduction to 12-step recovery. All of this is provided within the most caring, private, comfortable, and professional of alcohol and drug rehab environments.

After the completion of the substance abuse program, it oftentimes comes down to the knowledge and the experiences gained in treatment for maintaining sobriety. For some, knowledge may be all that they possess. Through engaging lectures and workshops, we strive to instill this knowledge, this coping strategy into our clients. When combined with the other efforts of the addiction treatment program, we feel our residents have the best foundation for sustained recovery.
