Mental Health Therapies

More than half of all drug and alcohol addicts are suffering from a mental disorder on top of their chemical dependence, making them a dual-diagnosis patient. Focusing solely on the addiction during rehab is a shortsighted mistake and one that is likely to end in a discouraging relapse. Being that many addictions are born from a preexisting mental condition, such as depression or anxiety. Some therapies that can help include:

Light Sound Neurotherapy Treatment
Neurofeedback Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
Experiential Therapy
Family of Origin Therapy
Individualized Rehab Treatment
Medication Assisted Therapy
Rational Emotive Therapy
Trauma Therapy
Holistic Therapies

Express Yourself for Addiction Recovery

Art Therapy for Addiction Recovery
Self-expression knows many forms, and oftentimes for addiction patients, speaking in one-on-one or even group therapy sessions is not the most effective form of expression. At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, we recognize that many patients are most comfortable expressing themselves through interactive activities-based therapies that allow them to be uninhibited in their communications. These activities range from art to music.

Animal-Assisted Therapies


Pet Therapy for Addiction RecoveryHumans and animals have shared an unbreakable bond since the dawn of civilization, and it is this bond that lies at the heart of the idea of animal therapy. Due to this bond and the unspoken communication that exists between humans and many animals, animal therapy can enable many individuals to access and address buried feelings and emotions. This makes animal-assisted therapies incredibly effective in treating addiction patients suffering:

Pets and Addiction Treatment
Canine-Assisted Therapy
Physiological Therapies


Alternative Therapies for Chronic Pain

Acupuncture for Addiction Recovery
Unbearable and incessant pain can make everyday living a struggle and cause a person to turn to painkillers for relief. When prescription drugs and opioids lose their effect, the subject is left to live a life of agony, misery and discomfort, with no relief in sight. This often leads patients to abuse drugs even more, intensifying their dependence and addiction.

One of the biggest problems with America’s chronic pain epidemic is that people have only:

Acupuncture & Biofeedback
Detoxification Massage Therapy
Chiropractic Therapy
Group Therapies

A life mired in addiction can be a very lonely one. Before checking into residential drug and alcohol rehab, many of our patients have lost jobs, friends, financial status, relationships, family support and just about anything else of meaning in their lives. The knowledge that there are many others fighting the same common foe is a comforting feeling to recovering addicts:

Psychodrama Therapy
Couples Therapy
Family Therapy
Group Dynamic
Motivational Interviewing
