As the #1 rehab treatment center in Oxnard and Ventura, Channel Islands Rehab is cut from a better cloth. Here, we use the best of traditional rehab treatment and modern-day scientific treatment methods. By using evidence-based therapies to treat alcohol and drug addiction, Channel Islands Rehab has been able to help more people get sober and stay sober for the long-term. Let’s take a look at the different kinds of evidence-based therapies we use to treat addiction effectively.
Our Rehab Treatment Center Therapies for Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Let’s explore some of the different therapies that we offer here at Channel Islands Rehab:
A big part of addiction and substance abuse is a lack of self-control. Biofeedback is all about using visual or auditory feedback to establish control of bodily functions, including blood flow, pain perception, blood pressure, and even heart rate. Interpersonal neurobiology combines biology, linguistics, and psychology to determine common findings of the human experience and different perspectives. This helps us to craft a highly customized treatment plan for each individual.
As the saying goes, “You can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first.” Channel Islands Rehab utilizes humanistic therapies to improve the mental health of our patients, who often come to us depressed, traumatized, and anxious. Humanistic therapies teach people how to be honest with and true to themselves. People in addiction often sell themselves out or sell themselves short and even forget who they are, what they stand for, and what they believe in. Humanistic therapies can help you discover yourself for the first time or rediscover yourself if you have been lost in addiction.
Internal Locus of Control
Internal locus of control therapy can be distilled down to accountability. By looking at the events in your life with a little assistance and introspection, you can see that these events – either good or bad – are always caused by actions or factors that are firmly within your control. Rather than blaming mom and dad, the teacher, the person who abused you, or anyone else, internal locus of control teaches people to shift their attitudes, effort, and preparation in life’s trials to attain better results.
Many of the people who suffer from drug addictions have underlying borderline personality disorders. These are people who have often lived through recurring trauma and abuse and have developed this disorder over time. The result is often intense negative emotions, and that is what dialectical behavioral treatment seeks to resolve.
Individuals who attend our rehab treatment center are expected to partake in individual therapy and group therapy. Group therapy is a great tool to learn about others and to learn about yourself. Group therapy allows you to connect with others who have similar struggles and gain support so that you don’t have to fight addiction on our own.
