Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
Admission criteria match ASAM Level 2.1. Participants are at high risk of relapse and require intensive structure, education, and support to foster sufficient sobriety for recovery. Therapy occurs in a group format, 2-hours daily, Monday through Friday, with a curriculum that averages 4 weeks. Individual and/or family sessions occur at least monthly.
While some people may start with Motivational Enhancement Therapy, step up to Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and then finish with Twelve Step Facilitation, each therapy is distinct and does not require a linear progression. In design, MET utilizes a harm reduction approach, whereas total abstinence is the goal for CBT and TSF. The curriculum for all three therapies draws on evidence-based practices from the following sources:
Hazelden/Dartmouth Medical School Integrated Co-Occurring Disorders Program
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Moral Reconation Therapy
John Gottman Institute
