At Safe Harbor Treatment Center, we incorporate a variety of therapeutic, experiential and educational group offerings to encompass and create a complete experience for our clients. Participating in a group setting has been shown to benefit clients by providing a different perspective than can be achieved in individual therapy alone. In addition, group experiences support connection and a feeling of community.
Experiencing a traumatic event has the potential to be a major contributing factor for developing an addiction. Trauma has a profound effect on the brain, often triggering debilitating mental health symptoms such as anxiety, vulnerability, fear, irrational behaviors and others. These symptoms can collectively be termed PTSD.
Addictions are an attempt to self-medicate/self-regulate these uncomfortable feelings and memories when they become unmanageable. EMDR Therapy is effective in diminishing the emotional charge associated with traumatic events. Because traumatic experiences are stored in the right side, emotional side of the brain, persons who have experienced trauma are often “triggered” by subconscious stimuli. EMDR is effective in neutralizing the emotional memory of painful events. Lessening of symptoms and increasing feelings of safety and peace.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a treatment process that pinpoints and addresses traumatic experiences that have overwhelmed the brain’s natural coping ability and resilience. There are different phases of EMDR, beginning with a preparation stage and gradually beginning sets of bilateral eye movements. EMDR therapy identifies the physical and emotional sensations associated with the traumatic memory and works to install a positive belief and result in a positive resolution.
DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques with emotion regulation and reality testing. This modality incorporates concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful-awareness. Many individuals with substance use disorder as well as trauma experience a dysregulated nervous system, resulting in the inability to process emotions in a healthy manner. DBT effectively assists clients with skills to balance their thoughts and feelings in a way that produces internal harmony.
DBT Skills Training teaches clients skills that will enable them to tolerate emotional distress. Skills learned through this therapeutic approach will offer clients the ability to move though uncomfortable feelings without engaging in harmful, damaging behaviors. Clients will be offered alternatives to the habits they have developed and be provided a space to “practice” using them. This approach has been shown to be particularly effective in alleviating urges for self-harm and assists with impulse control. Clients begin to feel empowered to manage their feelings. The result is more thoughtful, mature, decision making ability and a sense of peace and calm. DBT effectively assists clients with learning to balance their thoughts and feelings in a way that produces internal harmony.
At Safe Harbor, Our experienced clinicians will utilize DBT skills groups to focus on ways clients can incorporate these new tools in their everyday life.
Addiction, trauma and other mental health issues are strongly impacted by the way one manages their thoughts and feelings. CBT is designed to engage clients in the process of becoming conscious and aware of their thought patterns. Often times those suffering with addiction, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and other mental health conditions do not realize the impact of their thoughts in relation to their behavior.
With CBT, the goal is to gain insight into one’s thoughts. It is believed that thoughts become actions. By noticing and learning to consciously shift the focus of destructive thinking, clients begin to elicit executive functioning and critical thinking. Safe Harbor utilizes CBT in both individual and group settings.
