Our drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is built on the premise that lasting recovery, sustained mental health, and happiness are best promoted by identifying personal strengths, and then learning how to leverage those strengths to manage our weaknesses, or even eliminate them.
At Strength-Based Spiritual Recovery we also firmly believe that most addictions are reflections of a spiritual longing, and most addicts are on a spiritual journey, even if they are not aware of it. Thus Spirituality, beginning with mindfulness, is emphasized as central and unifying thread of our program. All of our evidenced based groups, such as DBT (Dialectal Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), Relapse Prevention and other addiction management groups, are rooted in the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness practice itself has also been proven to be an evidenced based intervention for stress management, emotional regulation and even rewiring the brain for improved impulse control and delay gratification.
Over the course of treatment, we also address the primary concerns related to mental illnesses and/or addiction which may have motivated our clients to seek treatment. Our years of experience has taught us over and over again, that lasting recovery and sustained mental health will never come from only focusing on weaknesses, mental illnesses, or the most shameful things our clients have ever done by highlighting the stigma associated with addiction. While we do address the concerns related to mental illnesses and addiction, our treatment program is built on the premise that lasting recovery, sustained mental health and happiness is best promoted by identifying personal strengths, and then learning how to leverage those strengths to manage our weaknesses, or even eliminate them.
We are dedicated to maintaining a safe, alcohol and drug free, comfortable, and spiritually nourishing therapeutic environment. We strive to embody a strong sense of ‘unity,’ in order to combat the deep rooted feelings of ‘disconnectedness and meaninglessness,’ which we believe is at the heart of most addictions and most forms of psychological, emotional, and spiritual suffering.
