Drug addiction is classified as a mental or physiological dependence to a substance. It can be one or both.
Therapy and treatment for recovery begins the moment you admit to needing help and are ready to enter a treatment program. When you arrive at Level Up Treatment Centers in West Palm Beach, Florida, you will be assigned an addiction counselor who will work with you one-on-one in private sessions for the entirety of your stay.
Evidence-based therapies include, but are not limited to: Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Using these methods and beyond, we help the client recognize and correct the dysfunctional behavioral patterns that have overtaken them, and ultimately confront and heal the pain of the past so that they can lead a healthy, addiction-free life. Therapy sessions at Level Up West Palm Beach offer clients a safe space to dig deep and discover the complex nature behind their addiction, and to learn how to resolve and heal each particular underlying issue.
Addiction is primarily caused by various underlying, unresolved issues in one’s life or past, and is soon discovered that the client is merely using alcohol or other drugs as a coping mechanism to deal with the trauma or pain, leading to a type of dependence that one cannot break on their own, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 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: One must come to understand their addiction and alcoholism and reach a spiritual solution for this spiritual dilemma.
