Addiction and Trauma Therapy in Pompano Beach

Addiction Therapeutic Services Offered

Variety in treatments is a point of pride in the Legacy model of rehabilitation. This can ensure that people at all stages of addiction can be treated as effectively as possible. Treatment planning is determined by a number of factors, including the individual needs of the client, the substance they are dependent on, and any dual diagnoses, among other factors. Legacy Healing Center in Pompano Beach details the kinds of addiction and trauma therapy available at our esteemed facility.

Addiction, at its core, is a universal illness, which can have effects on its victims physically, mentally, and socially. While our Legacy Healing detox is a means to treat the physical aftermath of such a dependency, behavioral therapies are dedicated to teaching patients how to manage the latter two issues. Below are the distinct therapy options that can serve as the life-changing tools people can utilize in overcoming this illness.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Sometimes, it takes looking back to understand the best way to move forward. The psychodynamic therapy method places emphasis on holistically approaching the patient’s relationship with the world around them by means of talk therapy. This is done to facilitate identifying any patterns in thoughts or internalized beliefs that may contribute to the addiction in question, as well as deciphering past experiences that may play a part.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

This is an evidence-based approach that focuses on rebuilding formerly destructive coping mechanisms on which people have become reliant. CBT is conducted with a therapist through structured sessions. The number of sessions will depend on the individual being treated and their needs. The goal is to help the patient identify negative thought patterns and transform them into positive behaviors.

12-Step Facilitation Therapy

The 12-step method is a renowned program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and has since been adapted to approach all forms of substance abuse. It recognizes that substance abuse may have a variety of consequences, ranging from physical, emotional, and social to spiritual. Each factor must be addressed to effectively reach and maintain sobriety. Acceptance is a key factor that transitions to surrendering to a higher power and eventually attending group meetings to reinforce these concepts. 

Rapid Resolution Therapy

Traumatic events, at any point in life, can be a catalyst in the development of substance addiction. Rapid resolution therapy is designed to aid patients in overcoming the continual effects of trauma. Techniques like hypnosis, guided imagery, and personal stories can help clients in managing any troubling thoughts they may be experiencing.

Family Therapy and Addiction

Legacy Pompano recognizes the importance of family involvement in treatment. Addiction does not only affect the patient but also those closest to them as well. Spouses, parents, and children may feel the need to adopt certain roles in order to manage the problem, which sadly may have negative effects on the relationships as a whole. We seek to mend these relationships and come to terms with the situation at hand in a supportive and positive environment.

Trauma Incident Reduction

TIR (trauma incident reduction) is a method of psychotherapy that seeks to desensitize the patient regarding traumatic events that have impacted their life and condition. A trained counselor will conduct three one-on-one sessions, lasting approximately 60 to 90 minutes each. This becomes a truly safe space where you can remember and engage with suppressed experiences and effectively examine the emotions they caused, an invaluable tool in the recovery process.

Brain Paint & Vibroacoustic Therapy

Brain painting is a form of therapy that utilizes biofeedback with the intention of improving brain function without using a brain map. This non-invasive technique involves attaching sensors to the patient’s scalp, after which a series of questions will be asked. The brain’s responses to certain questions and stimuli can then be examined by a technician, providing valuable information that can be utilized in another part of the treatment. It can also highlight when part of the brain may not be working properly and inform them on what can be done to correct this. 

Vibroacoustic therapy, aka VAT, is a low-frequency sound massage that affects the deep tissue of the brain. Audio waves ranging from 30 Hz-120 Hz are played through transducers in the bed. The relaxing effect is useful as another tool for the treatment process as a whole.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming

NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) serves as a psychological approach that incorporates developing self-help techniques through the analysis of the success of others in similar situations. A variety of techniques is applied, such as consciously pairing a trigger with a pleasurable memory, i.e., tapping your leg when you want to feel happy.
