Our Treatment Approach to Addiction Therapy

Because of our belief in the uniqueness of each and every person, we believe that each person deserves their own customized and individualized treatment plan.

Using evidence-based treatments, the staff at Northpoint Colorado gives each patient the exact services needed in their journey. Beginning at the admissions call with the highly-trained and experienced staff at Northpoint Colorado, a plan will be developed to give each individual exactly what they need to not only succeed but to live a life in long-term recovery.

Northpoint Colorado offers both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs for those battling substance use disorders, mental health disorders, or both. Inpatient programming varies in length depending on medical necessity and provides instruction that is designed to teach you how to identify triggers, avoid relapses, and maintain sobriety.

Outpatient programming offers patients the flexibility to fit schedules, while also providing proven and effective treatment.

Our Counseling Approach

When receiving counseling and therapy services for mental health or addiction issues, it is important to dig in and come at the disorders from all angles. While addiction treatment methods vary for all patients, most clients require more than just the traditional individual counseling sessions.

Our clients have the ability to receive both cognitive-behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies on an individual level.

In cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), clients will be challenged in an approach that helps with recognizing negative or unhelpful thoughts and patterns in behavior. This therapy focuses on perceptions that cause addiction. The ultimate goal in this form of therapy is improving the quality of life of the patient and avoiding relapse.

In dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), clients will work to gain acceptance about their situation and its reality. DBT is most commonly used for those that have experienced suicidal thoughts.

Addiction Recovery Services

If overlooked, a patient with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders is dealt a great disservice by their rehab center. At Northpoint Colorado, we understand that a large percentage of those with mental health disorders turn to addiction without ever knowing that they have a mental health disorder.

When this is the case, it is called a co-occurring disorder, and many treatment centers throughout the country are not equipped to provide services for both mental health and addiction recovery simultaneously.

There are countless mental health disorders that can play into addiction and co-exist with it. Among the most common disorders are anxiety, depression, eating disorders, trauma, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

When treatment centers are unable to provide care for both disorders, the chances of lasting recovery are considerably smaller. Without treating underlying psychiatric disorders, patients are far more likely to return to coping with substances. Without treating addiction, proper treatments for psychiatric disorders are harder to complete.

In providing dual diagnosis treatment or integrated care, clinicians aim to assist by teaching you or your loved one how to cope with both conditions in a functional way, allowing for a more fulfilling and structured life.

A dual diagnosis treatment approach usually contains most of the following steps at Northpoint Colorado:

  • Detoxification, evaluation, and diagnosis
  • Personal therapy with a counselor
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Aftercare planning
  • Aftercare support

A Mix of Addiction Therapy Services for a Better Tomorrow

Using proven treatment modalities, we have seen success in rebuilding and healing the lives of many. Our mix of services provided for those in addiction treatment is designed to not only treat the physical and psychological substance addiction but also teach about healthy lifestyles once the time in the rehab facilities or programs has ended.

In building a healthy lifestyle, we use many modes of therapy that will help our clients make better decisions.

Using educational classes that build life skills, we give advice in overcoming addiction, but also in making better choices to enhance the quality and length of life.

Classes and skill-building activities cover a wide range of subjects. Some of the areas covered are nutritional wellness and outdoor therapy. Classes in life skills building will help our patients understand the science of addiction, self-care, good communication, healthy relationships, and can assist in managing stress and anger.

Our recreational therapy options in the outdoors include mindfulness, meditation, hiking, yoga, and more.

Our Holistic Program Includes More Than Just Counseling

We take a holistic treatment approach to addiction and mental health. This essentially means that we attack your addiction or mental health disorder from all angles.

Each treatment modality that we offer brings a different level of care to your time in a recovery center. Among our other offerings in treatment are eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), 12-step programs, alternatives to 12-step programs, group therapy, and family therapy.

In EMDR therapy, clients will do less talking and allow themselves to heal naturally by recalling past triggers and traumatic experiences. This allows clients to find peace with their situations and pasts.

When thinking of recovery, 12-step programs are one of the first that comes to mind with the popularization of groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous. At Northpoint Colorado, there are paths to take that include following the 12-steps and alternatives to the 12-steps.

The 12 steps to follow for those that thrive in structured settings are:

  • Surrender
  • Hope
  • Commitment
  • Honesty
  • Truth
  • Willingness
  • Humility
  • Reflection
  • Amendment
  • Vigilance
  • Attunement
  • Service

Northpoint Recovery Centers are firm believers in the structure and accountability that comes with 12-step programs.

Along with individual counseling and therapy offerings, Northpoint understands that having support groups and speaking with more than just a licensed counselor will do wonders for anyone dealing with a mental health or substance use disorder.

Sharing your story and hearing accounts about other patients’ addiction battles is an integral component of the recovery journey. Process groups can help you see your own past from an open-minded perspective.

Another important piece in the puzzle that makes up recovery from substance use and mental health disorders is family. Families are complex, and that goes without saying.
