Continuum Recovery of Colorado has masters-level or higher therapists. We expect our clients to receive the best possible treatment. Employing highly educated, experienced and professional therapists is how we achieve this goal. Our therapists are comfortable working with clients of all backgrounds. They specialize in substance abuse, trauma and co-occurring disorders.
A core part of our outpatient treatment is individual therapy, also called psychotherapy. This process has clients working one-on-one with a qualified substance abuse counselor. Clients explore their feelings and behaviors, work through emotional memories and set personal goals.
Working through recovery with similar individuals is an empowering experience. During group recovery, our trained counselors work with several individuals at one time. Members share experiences, exchange feedback and support one another. This personal interaction is crucial to moving forward.
Addiction is a progressive disease that affects more than the addict. It also impacts the family unit. Continuum Recovery of Colorado extends education and support to family and loved ones. We want them to understand the components of addiction and how to best support their loved one. A strong support system lowers the risk of relapse and encourages long-term recovery.
This allows us to spend one-on-one time with our clients to ensure they are properly diagnosed and have a customized treatment plan to match. During their treatment, our therapists adjust treatment plans according to progress, co-occurring disorders, length of treatment and other factors.
A co-occurring disorder is when a person is diagnosed with a mental health disorder and substance abuse disorder. It is critical that both issues are addressed and treated. Clients who have a co-occurring disorder are given specialized treatment that includes social skills training, relapse prevention, medication compliance counseling, coping skills and more.
CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is proven to be effective in treating drug and alcohol problems. Addiction is isolating and generally pulls people away from themselves and others, resulting in guilt, shame and suicidal thoughts. CBT replaces this negative thinking with positive thought patterns, attitudes and beliefs. It also teaches addicts how to deal with stressful situations.
DBT - Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy is a cognitive behavioral treatment that focuses on individual therapy and group skills training classes. During therapy, clients develop new skills and strategies to envision a life they want to live. To be successful, clients must work on these four skills:
- Being fully aware of the present moment.
- Distress tolerance. Tolerating a painful situation without drugs or alcohol.
- Interpersonal effectiveness. Developing self-respect and confidence while strengthening relationships with friends, family and loved ones.
- Emotion regulation. Understanding that negative emotions are normal but should not be long-lasting or consuming.
EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is a type of psychotherapy that eases the stress associated with traumatic experiences. The goal of EMDR is to walk people through the psychological trauma in their lives to process the pain in a healthier way. Because many addicts suffer from severe emotional pain, EMDR is an effective tool that can move them closer to healing.
Continuum Recovery of Colorado treats substance abuse using a holistic approach. Our comprehensive care addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our clients. When all parts are given the right ingredients to heal, an addict has a greater chance of reaching a full recovery. To succeed at holistic care, our Denver treatment center offers well-rounded therapies such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, fitness, nutrition, IV therapy and dietary supplements.
