Services that address the whole person–not just the addiction.
Addiction is a complicated disease that requires a fully integrated approach to treatment. While it’s important to address the physical side effects of addiction, the negative, unhealthy, self-destructive behavioral patterns that contribute to substance use are deeply rooted in thoughts and emotions. It’s critical to engage in clinically sophisticated therapies that are designed to help you address your behavior and effect real change.
At Makana Path, clients participate in a range of traditional and alternative therapies, including:
- Daily group therapy.
- 2x weekly individual therapy.
- Weekly individual recovery coaching.
- Daily personal training sessions.
- Experiential group therapies, such as yoga, meditation and art therapy.
- Recreational activities, including hiking, swimming and day trips to Austin, TX.
Treatment for Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders
Many people who have a substance use disorder are also diagnosed with a co-occurring mental health disorder, or dual diagnosis. A co-occurring mental health disorder refers to any mental health condition that coincides with substance use disorder. Common co-occurring mental health disorders include:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Bipolar disorder.
- Attachment issues.
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Evidence-Based Clinical Therapies
Awareness of addiction is not enough to lead to actual changes in behavior. For genuine healing and lasting recovery to occur, treatment must incorporate evidence-based clinical therapies that teach clients how to better manage and process their emotions; improve their interpersonal skills; address co-occurring mental health disorders; and confront the underlying issues that contributed to their substance use.
At Makana Path, our team of expert clinicians utilizes several types of therapy:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a solution-focused therapy that helps clients understand the connection between thoughts, feelings and emotions, and identify unhealthy, negative self-talk and thought patterns and replace them with more productive, positive language.
Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a form of CBT that is particularly effective in reducing symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder.
Attachment theory-based therapies address the unhealthy, insecure attachment styles related to long-term relationships, especially those pertaining to parent-child or caregiver-child relationships, which can have a significant impact on behavior and relationships throughout childhood and into adulthood.
Internal family systems (IFS) seeks to help the client recognize how their sub-personalities, or “parts” related to childhood pain and trauma, help them function as a system, and how understanding their system as a whole can help them achieve improved well-being.
Rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) is an action-oriented type of CBT designed to produce results by teaching clients how to change the irrational beliefs that are the results of emotional reactions to events.
Narrative therapy is a type of psychotherapy that views clients separately from their problems. It helps clients identify their values, as well as the knowledge and skills they need to fulfill these values so that they can minimize and overcome their problems.
We also weave components of dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) into our clinical programming. DBT aims to improve mindfulness and interpersonal communication skills and teach clients how to accept negativity and regulate emotion.
