Our Therapy Programs For Substance Abuse

The very root of what Midwood Addiction Treatment is all about can be found in our Therapy Programs For Substance that we provide. We believe in providing evidence-based, clinically effective therapies that have proven potential to affect significant change in the lives of those looking to push past addiction and make it through to recovery.

Twelve-Step Facilitation Therapy

Twelve-step facilitation therapy is a type of behavioral therapy that promotes long-term abstinence by encouraging and facilitating the active engagement of clients in a 12-step recovery group. It has its basis in 12-step fellowships, and it operates under the assumption that addiction is a chronic and progressive disease that has biological, psychological and spiritual aspects, all of which are addressed as an individual works through the 12 steps.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is known throughout the addiction treatment community as being one of the top forms of therapy utilized for recovering addicts and alcoholics. This form of psychotherapy helps individuals change their dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors in an effort to promote solutions. CBT is widely used to help treat addiction, as well as many other mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and even marital issues.

Trauma Recovery / EMDR Therapy

Many people who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse have a history of trauma. Trauma can include any number of experiences, such as combat, a natural disaster, terrorism, or even a divorce. Midwood Addiction Treatment provides EMDR therapy and several other evidence-based treatments capable of helping clients work through their trauma in order to rebuild their psychological health.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a technique to achieve a state of alert, focused relaxation by deliberately paying attention to thoughts and sensations without judgment. This allows the mind to refocus on the present moment. Mindfulness meditation has been shown to improve well-being, physical health and mental health. It allows recovering individuals to tap into an experience of openness and expansiveness. That broader frame of reference and heightened consciousness enables them to engage more deliberately, be more present, be driven less by negative self-talk and unexamined emotion, respond less reflexively to stimulus and take greater control of their actions, emotions, connections and environment.


Yoga is a form of exercise that uses physical postures to learn how to connect med, body, and breath to gain self-awareness and focus attention inward. Yoga is proven to reduce stress, anxiety and the severity of PTSD symptoms, elevate mood, and increase physical fitness and agility. Harmony Recovery uses yoga as an adjunct therapy as a way to supplement our 12-Step and Cognitive Behavioral therapies.

Adventure Therapy

Getting involved in a physical activity, such as walking a ropes course or riding a horse, can help get individuals “loosened up” in a way that allows them to start accessing deep emotions. Also able to help develop bonds, trust, and friendship amongst others, adventure therapy utilizes a specific activity to help individuals get hands-on with their recovery. Adventure therapy can help individuals recover simply by doing.

Family Counseling

At Midwood Addiction Treatment we value the importance of family, which is why family counseling is included in the therapies that we provide. We work to gather the family of the client together to help sort through interpersonal issues as they pertain to addiction, as well as address underlying problems that have continually caused division within the family unit. The goal is always to bring families to a place where common ground is possible, and then build from there.

Individual Therapy

Easily the most common form of therapy, individual therapy involves a therapist and the client. Through these sessions, the therapist will guide the client in a manner that identifies and addresses the psychological aspects of their addiction so that recovery can be made possible.

Group Therapy

Group therapy, which includes many different clients, helps everyone involved learn from one another, share experiences, and address commonplace issues as they pertain to addiction. Through this form of therapy, clients can begin bonding, opening up, and healing in ways that they never felt able to before

Education Workshops

Even though clients have had firsthand experience with addiction, there is still a great deal of information to learn about when it comes to this disease. Through the education workshops provided at Midwood Addiction Treatment, clients can learn about things such as why the brain changes when substances are being abused, what makes addiction a disease, and so on.

Wellness Education

It is not uncommon for clients to find that during their active addiction, they completely ignored their physical and psychological wellbeing. In fact, it might be something that has been so far forgotten that a client might not even know where to start if he or she wants to be well. Midwood Addiction Treatment provides wellness education that includes good nutrition and ways to keep physically fit in an effort to help clients incorporate healthy choices into their lives.

Each one of these therapies has proven to be effective for those who are recovering from substance abuse and addiction. The clients at Midwood Addiction Treatment often have many of these therapies incorporated into their treatment plans in an effort to address the many different needs that they may have.

Music Therapy

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients’ abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives.

Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words. Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in overall physical rehabilitation and facilitating movement, increasing people’s motivation to become engaged in their treatment, providing emotional support for clients and their families, and providing an outlet for expression of feelings. We utilize Piedmont Music Therapy’s services.
