Addiction therapy begins the moment you admit to needing help and are ready to complete a treatment program. When you arrive at Holistix Treatment Centers, you will be assigned an addictions counselor who will work with you one-on-one in private sessions for the entirety of your stay.

Our philosophy states that addiction is typically caused by various underlying, unresolved issues, and that the client is merely using alcohol or other drugs as a coping mechanism to deal with the trauma or pain, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We believe that in order to end the cycle of dependency one must also uncover the reason why they are choosing to numb themselves with alcohol or other drugs.

Therapy sessions at Holistix Treatment Centers offer clients a safe space to dig deep and discover the complex nature behind their addictions, and to learn how to resolve and heal each particular underlying issue. We truly believe that each client is an individual with unique life circumstances. Through the use of evidence-based therapy including and not limited to Dialectic Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, we help you recognize and correct the dysfunctional behavioral patterns that have overtaken you, and ultimately heal the pain of the past, so that you can lead a healthy, addiction-free life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Addiction (CBT)

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is one of the types of therapies used to treat a wide variety of mental disorders and conditions such as anxiety, depression, and even phobias. Currently, CBT is successfully being used to treat drug and alcohol addiction, especially when integrated as a component of an overall, comprehensive program of recovery. Here at Holistix Treatment Centers, we have honed in on using cognitive-behavioral coping skills treatment, in other words, a short-term, focused therapeutic approach, to helping our clients overcome addiction by introducing the same learning processes he or she used to initially develop the addiction.

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive behaviorial therapy is a type of treatment which is based on the concept that behaviors and feelings are caused by one’s thoughts as opposed to an outside stimuli such as situations, events or people. A person who is dependent on drugs or alcohol may be unable to change his or her circumstances, but what can be changed is how they think about them. The idea is that if the person changes the way they feel and behave, they can overcome the addiction. As a method for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, the therapist’s goal of using CBT is to teach the individual to recognize certain situations in which they are the most likely to use drugs or abuse alcohol and to avoid them. They are taught to cope with other problems and destructive behaviors which may lead to their substance abuse.

Spiritual Counseling for Long-Term Recovery

Spiritual counseling provides inspirational support by recognizing the high worth and value of the deeper being within each person. Independent of religious affiliation or preferences, this work guides clients to experience their own core essence and teaches them how to empower themselves to bring what they desire into their life.

At Holistix Treatment Centers’, spiritual counseling is based on new-thought/ancient-wisdom principles and the energy of unconditional love. Our spiritual counselors encourage each client, in conjunction with their addiction therapy, to recover their ability to love themselves as they take their next steps towards greater wholeness, sobriety, health, creativity, and wellness.

Our intention is to hold them in an energy field of unconditional love while they learn how to get what they want in life by utilizing powerful practices and transformative tools from our sessions. Fundamental to this idea is the necessity to trade in old, selfish desires for new and constructive ones. When one’s desires are aligned with spiritual principles, amazing things transpire.

Spirituality is about accessing your higher consciousness and experiencing your core essence. We assist each client in accessing their own inner resources rather than relying on outer substances to change their state. Through intuitive readings and personalized practices, each client can walk the freedom path by reclaiming their whole being and living a fulfilling life. These ideas are fully consistent with mainstream chemical dependency counseling.

Our transformation tool kit includes: breath work, perception-checking, seeing the loving essence, heart-centered listening, compassionate self-forgiveness, affirmations, mindfulness meditation, visualization, and positive-self talk.

The benefits of spiritual counseling include:
  • Greater access to your own intuition and inner wisdom
  • Wider perspectives on specific issues
  • Compassionate understanding of your negative behaviors
  • Clarity about how addiction is a pathway to grace
  • Energetic techniques for creating deeper connections & relationships
  • Effective ways to move up the emotional scale from fear to faith
  • Embodiment practices to enhance your ability to feel well-being
  • Spiritual counseling provides the bedrock for long-term recovery. We also use Dialectic Behavior Therapy as a transformative tool. Biofeedback Therapy reinforces spiritual progress by helping tame responses to stress. For those with severe trauma, EMDR Therapy for PSTD is offered so that the basic emotional stability necessary to benefit from treatment can be achieved.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational interviewing for addiction treatment is a goal-oriented method of therapy and counseling which focuses on the client. It encourages and emphasizes positive results and seeks to help an addict get over the hump of ambivalence in how he or she is behaving.

From start to finish, the motivational interviewing process focuses on finding the desire to change within the client. This is not a thought that is created or pushed on to the client by the therapist. Rather, it is developed by finding common ground, and establishing a rapport with the individual and encouraging the person to consider the real life negative consequences of their addiction. This technique has been used to help those struggling with addiction to truly find it within themselves to embrace their treatment program, and to take responsibility for making choices that lead to a healthier life.
