Evidence-Based Therapy


Our Evidence-Based Addiction Therapy

Drug Addiction Is Classified As A Physical Or Psychological Dependence On A Drug. It Can Be Both.

Addiction therapy begins the moment you admit to needing help and are ready to enter a treatment program. When you arrive at Level Up Lake Worth, you will be assigned an addictions counselor who will work with you one-on-one in private sessions for the entirety of your stay.

Our philosophy states that addiction is typically caused by various underlying, unresolved issues, and that the client is merely using alcohol or other drugs as a coping mechanism to deal with the trauma or pain, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We believe that 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.

Therapy sessions at Level Up Lake Worth offer clients a safe space to dig deep and discover the complex nature behind their addictions, and to learn how to resolve and heal each particular underlying issue. We truly believe that each client is an individual with unique life circumstances. Evidence-based therapies include, but are not limited to: Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,  we help the client recognize and correct the dysfunctional behavioral patterns that have overtaken them, and ultimately heal the pain of the past so that they can lead a healthy, addiction-free life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Addiction (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the types of evidence-based addiction therapies used to treat a wide variety of mental disorders and conditions such as anxiety, depression, and even phobias. Currently, CBT is successfully being used to treat drug and alcohol addiction, especially when integrated as a component of an overall, comprehensive program of recovery. Here at Level Up Lake Worth, we have honed in on using cognitive-behavioral coping skills treatment, which is a focused therapeutic approach, to helping our clients overcome addiction by introducing the same learning processes he or she used to initially develop the addiction.

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a type of evidence-based therapy which is based on the concept that behaviors and feelings are caused by one’s thoughts as opposed to an outside stimuli such as situations, events or people. A person who is dependent on drugs or alcohol may be unable to change his or her circumstances, but what can be changed is how they think about them. The idea is that if the person changes the way they feel and behave, they can overcome the addiction. As a method for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, the therapist’s goal of using CBT is to teach the individual to recognize certain situations in which they are most likely to use drugs or abuse alcohol and to avoid them. In addition, they are taught to cope with a wide range of other problems, including destructive and self-destructive behaviors which are likely to lead to further and worsening substance abuse in the immediate future.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational interviewing for addiction treatment is a goal-oriented method of therapy and counseling which focuses on the client. It encourages and emphasizes positive results and seeks to help an addict get over the hump of ambivalence in how he or she is behaving.

From start to finish, the motivational interviewing process focuses on finding the desire to change within the client. This is not a thought that is created or pushed on to the client by the therapist. Rather, it is developed by finding common ground, and establishing a rapport with the individual and encouraging the person to consider the real life negative consequences of their addiction. This technique has been used to help those struggling with addiction to truly find it within themselves to embrace their treatment program, and to take responsibility for making choices that lead to a healthier life.
