Counseling Techniques in Colorado Springs

 

Mission Statement

We view chemical dependency as a progressive disease that affects the mind, the body, and the spirit of the individual. We believe the highest level of client accountability, along with education and skill development, will interrupt the disease and lead a person to a happy, hopeful, and productive life. We are certain that every person, regardless of income, age, gender, or ethnicity, has a right to be free from the bondage of addiction.

Philosophy

It is our treatment philosophy that chemical dependency is a disease that impacts the addicted individual as well as their families and the entire community. Our approach to treatment involves the family and encourages the affected individual to work towards becoming a productive member of society. We have learned that addicts can recover in an environment that offers consistent directive therapy in an appropriate level of care. Directive therapy guides the client's recovery by teaching firm boundaries and a high level of accountability.

Family members can be shown how to encourage and love the affected individual in a way that will support and enhance a strong recovery.

Becoming chemically dependent doesn't happen overnight and neither does recovery. Each client has a unique life experience and a treatment plan should only be decided after a complete assessment that reveals the individual's needs. Treatment for chemical dependency can last up to two years depending on the severity of the disease and execution of the treatment plan.

We strive for success using evidence-based practices, such as Motivational Enhancement Therapy Cognitive and Dialectal substance abuse therapies, and Behavioral therapy. We encourage 12-step interaction combined with abstinence-based treatment. We strongly defend and practice the disease model of therapy.

Individuals will address both their behavioral health and substance abuse needs simultaneously.
