At Guardian Recovery Network we believe that intensive therapeutic intervention is an essential part of every single stage of the recovery process. We offer individual, group and family therapy, utilizing a range of proven techniques.
The therapeutic techniques we employ include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – CBT is a highly effective and commonly employed therapeutic method that focuses on re-framing negative patterns of thinking and behaving.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) – DBT is a type of CBT that focuses on helping clients live in the present moment while developing healthy and functional relationships and communicating more effectively.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – This therapeutic method, which utilizes vibrating handholds and flashing lights to stimulate the connection between the two hemispheres of the brain, is especially beneficial for men and women who have been suffering from deep-seated, unresolved trauma.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) – This method of therapy helps clients gain the motivation they need to stay sober long-term.
Recreational therapy – We offer numerous types of recreational/outdoor therapy depending on the treatment setting. Recreational activities range from hiking the Great White Mountains to kayaking in the warm waters of Southern Florida.
Holistic Therapies – We offer a range of holistic therapies geared towards improving the mind-body connection and facilitating spiritual healing. These include yoga, mindfulness meditation and acupuncture.
Nutrition therapy – At Guardian Recovery Network we believe that nutrition and addiction recovery are closely linked. We have licensed nutritionists on staff who teach our clients which food choices facilitate healing, while teaching them how to shop for and prepare food for themselves.
Experiential therapy – This therapeutic method classifies hands-on activities, such as psychodrama, art therapy and music therapy. It can be difficult for clients to process uncomfortable emotions or traumatic past events in traditional talk therapy, which is why this method often comes into play.
