THE THERAPY WE PROVIDE
There are many different types of addiction, and many different effective treatments for each type of addiction. Below are some of the different therapies and groups we have here at Lifeline Treatment Center.
Depending on each client’s needs, length of treatment, sessions with the primary therapist may be initially scheduled once to twice per week. It is during these sessions that the treatment plan is developed with input from the client and other Lifeline staff.
These sessions may include participation from anyone significant in the client’s life such as a spouse, significant other, parent, sibling, etc. With the client’s permission, these sessions may occur in person or through the use of HIPAA-compliant technology for telephone sessions.
Group therapy consists of therapeutic groups led by a licensed clinical professional and provides clients the opportunity to explore issues and process their recoveries in a safe, peer-supported atmosphere.
EXPRESSIVE THERAPIES IN RECOVERY
This form of group therapy provides clients opportunities to express their creativity and process how their expressions relate to recovery. Examples include music and art therapies.
MEDICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC SESSIONS
Research by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) and National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) shows that comprehensive, integrated care significantly increases long-term recovery and quality of life success rates. Therefore, medical & psychiatric assessments and follow-ups are recommended throughout the client’s stay.

Primarily based on our clinical model, business philosophy and evidenced-based materials, these groups consist of interactive instruction and group discussion.
