Addiction Therapy in Cincinnati

Addiction can look different to each person that experiences it. This means when a person enters into a substance abuse recovery program, it is important that they receive treatment that is adapted to their needs. It is why Legacy prides itself on offering a variety of effective therapy methods, which allows patients to comprehensively address what brought them to us. Read on to learn more about the different options for addiction therapy in Cincinnati and how they can help our clients reach their full potential.

Addiction Therapy Programs in Ohio

Both individual and group therapy are available and can ensure patients can focus on their healing while cultivating a supportive community. Our Cincinnati rehab has options for those who have completed treatment at our Ohio detox center. We also have options for those who simply need access to therapy programs from an outpatient setting. Below are many programs offered at Legacy and how they are useful in addressing the delicate facets of addiction.

Psychodynamic Therapy

In many cases, addiction is developed when a person is running from negative thoughts and emotions that they would rather ignore. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to provide a safe space for patients to address these emotions so that greater insights into that person’s thoughts and behaviors can be achieved. This insight is crucial in being able to understand the complexities of addiction and how to better avoid relapse in the face of triggers.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Through structured sessions with a clinically trained professional, patients undergoing cognitive behavioral therapy can focus on reevaluating previously destructive coping mechanisms that have driven them to abuse drugs or alcohol. A therapist will aid the patient in confronting their fears, learning techniques to calm the body and mind, and even practicing role-playing scenarios of stressful situations. At the end of treatment, a patient should be able to act as their own therapist in a sense, with the tools and understanding to move through triggering scenarios without relapsing.

12-Step Facilitation 

Created by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), the 12-step method has since been adapted to treat all forms of addiction. These programs understand the comprehensive consequences of substance abuse and that each of these negative effects must be properly addressed for a full recovery. By learning to practice acceptance and submit their struggles to a higher power, clients become ready to attend group sessions among peers that have lived through similar experiences. 

Rapid Resolution Therapy

When someone experiences trauma, they continue to live with negative consequences that affect them for long periods of time. The rapid resolution therapy program is designed to aid patients in overcoming the negative effects of that trauma. This is done through hypnotherapy (hypnosis), stories, guided imagery, and other forms of discussion that address negative emotions, thoughts, and behaviors related to that person’s substance abuse.

Family Therapy For Addiction

Rarely are the effects of substance abuse felt only by the one struggling with it. Parents, children, siblings, and spouses have likely gone through their own trauma. Our individual and group therapy programs for families seek to aid in the healing of these family members, as well as help them gain a better understanding of addiction and the situation at hand.

Trauma Therapy

Considering how common it is for people to turn to substance abuse in the wake of traumatic events, addiction and trauma therapy often go hand in hand. Also referred to as trauma-focused therapy, this method prioritizes the comprehension of how trauma has led to the individual’s emotional and behavioral responses.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming 

The neuro-linguistic programming method works to consider the successful strategies of others and learn to apply them to achieve a personal goal. People who utilize this approach will analyze the perspectives of themselves and others in order to create a comprehensive overview of their situation. By practicing this understanding, participants can learn to healthily and effectively address their own situations.

Brain Paint & Vibroacoustic Therapy 

Brain paint, also known as brain painting, applies biofeedback in order to improve brain functions. This helps patients to learn the difference between being in a daydreaming state and a focused state. 

VAT, or vibroacoustic therapy, is a deep-tissue sound massage that operates at very low frequencies. It transmits audio waves between 30 Hz and 120 Hz via the embedded transducers in the bed. This sound softly permeates throughout the bodily cells, which helps to produce a relaxed sensation for the participant.
