Evidence Based Therapies

evidence based therapies at Southeast Detox for addiction recovery

Addiction programs based on evidence-based therapies have proven to be some of the most effective ways to maintain sobriety. These types of therapies make use of extensive scientific research that has proven the therapeutic styles to be successful and effective when treating particular disorders or addictions.

At Southeast Detox, we believe in providing a wide range of treatment options that allow individuals to overcome addiction and mental health challenges. That’s why we offer psychological treatments based on scientific evidence, as well as holistic treatments so that individuals can discover what method of healing is most effective for them.

Evidence-Based Practices for Addiction

Scientific evidence points to a strong correlation between mental health disorders and addiction. That’s why we believe in providing therapeutic mental health treatments that address the root of addictive tendencies and help an individual abstain from substance abuse – for good.

The Power of Scientific Evidence and Evidence-Based Treatment

Evidence-based treatments offered at Southeast Detox are programs based on research findings and clinical effectiveness. The American Psychological Association defines these treatment methods, as “the integration of the best available research with clinical expertise in the context of patient characteristics, culture, and preferences.”

For those struggling with severe mental health challenges and symptoms, these evidence-based practices provide encouragement that hope is possible. Those who elect for evidence-based medicine, such as behavioral or cognitive therapies, will be guided by a mental health professional with clinical expertise in the space. This allows individuals to integrate research evidence and their own clinical expertise into the treatment methods.

An Evidence-Based Practice: Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies

Empirically supported treatments include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), both of which are offered at our Southeast Detox facility. These types of therapies have been shown especially beneficial for those struggling with mental health disorders such as addiction, Borderline Personality Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and eating disorders.

These types of empirically supported treatments teach emotional regulation (DBT) and how to reframe their mindset to cope with intrusive thoughts (CBT).

An Evidence-Based Practice: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness has proven effective in many research settings and clinical settings, and we believe an evidence-based practice that relies on behavioral or cognitive psychological treatment is a powerful way to find freedom from addiction.

At Southeast Detox, we use mindfulness-based and evidence-based psychotherapy for stress reduction and emotional regulation. This particular treatment can be especially beneficial for patients struggling with mental disorders such as anxiety and depression.

Evidence-Based Medicine for Addiction Treatment

Behavioral and Cognitive therapies such as DBT and CBT have been proven to combat the psychological symptoms associated with addiction and other mental health issues. Both of these treatment methods use mindfulness-based stress reduction to help patients learn how to interpret their emotions and react positively. These evidence-based methods provide effective treatments for patients in medical centers and rehab facilities across the globe.

Evidence-Based Practice: Dialectical Behavior Therapy

An evidence-based practice such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy can help individuals learn how to deal with intense emotions. These psychological treatments are backed by scientific evidence and include skills for emotional regulation and distress tolerance. A medical professional with clinical expertise in the field will walk patients through the psychological approaches so individuals can get the most out of their treatment plan.

Evidence-Based Practice: Cognitive Behavior Therapy

This evidence-based practice includes teaching patients how to reframe their mindset and thought processes so they can let go of intrusive thoughts that can be obsessive or anxiety-inducing. Many of those who struggle with addiction claim a racing mind is one of the key reasons they partake in substance use. When Cognitive Behavior Therapy is integrated into addiction treatment, individuals can learn to quiet racing thoughts and develop positive new coping skills.

An Evidence-Based Practice for Overcoming Substance Abuse

Through the use of scientific evidence and a focus on mental health, we believe that evidence-based therapy can have a positive impact on clinical psychology and patients who struggle with mental health challenges such as addiction.
