Different Addiction Therapies in Rehab at Sunrise House

Therapy is one of the most effective tools in combatting addiction and paving a clear path to recovery. Therapy sessions allow individuals to talk through their insecurities, weaknesses, and triggers, whether in a one-on-one talk with a counselor or in a group setting with other people battling addiction. At our addiction treatment facility in New Jersey, we offer several evidence-based therapies for our patients.

Types of Therapy at Our Addiction Treatment Facility in New Jersey

Behavioral therapies, including those listed below, are the most frequently used therapies in addiction treatment. Participation in behavioral therapies like individual therapy, group therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy can help patients build strong relapse prevention skills, improve problem-solving abilities, and better their relationships with others, among other things.1

Across all levels of care, patients at Sunrise House can benefit from the following therapies.

Individual Therapy for Substance Abuse Treatment

Each patient in Sunrise House’s residential program receives one hour-long session of individual counseling a week. Patients will be assigned a counselor early in their stay at Sunrise House, and will work with him or her throughout treatment.

Group Therapy in Drug & Alcohol Rehab

At Sunrise House, we take a patient-centric approach to group therapy, offering a wide range of groups to choose from. Since different people will have different treatment needs, we offer a range of specialized groups that includes:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Addiction Treatment

One of the most common types of therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is available to patients at Sunrise House. Designed to help individuals change harmful thoughts and beliefs, CBT is used to help develop new coping skills to maintain long-term recovery.

More Addiction Treatment Therapies Used in Rehab

As previously mentioned, there are many types of therapies that can aid in the treatment of substance use disorders, including holistic options. Additional addiction treatment therapies used at our rehab in New Jersey include the following:

Mindfulness/Reflections: Every evening, from 9 to 10, you will have the option of participating in a mindfulness group called “Reflections.” During this session, you’ll be encouraged to reflect on your day of treatment and isolate any areas that you thought were particularly valuable, or didn’t find much value in.

Discussion is encouraged. Please note that this is not the same as meditation group, which is offered one day in the morning and is a more focused therapy practice.

Music Therapy: Music is one of the greatest tools of communication that humans have developed, and it can also be made into a valuable asset during therapy. You will have the option of participating in music therapy once a week.

The 12-step program is one of the oldest methods of addiction recovery and has helped people around the world fight addiction. Sunrise House hosts daily Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) meetings, open to those enrolled at the facility and for those seeking a local chapter to join.
