Safe and Sound Protocol Study

When we first begin our recovery journey, we may not be ready to make the most of treatment from day one. Wanting to feel better doesn’t necessarily mean we are in the right place to be able to do so. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get there. Some of us just need extra support to feel safe, present, and receptive. Read More

What Is Post Induction Therapy?

Post Induction Therapy is a therapeutic roadmap for identifying, conceptualizing, and sustaining ongoing recovery from codependency. It’s a way to directly intervene on the five core issues, secondary symptoms, and relational issues defined by the Model of Developmental Immaturity, which charts the impact of codependency. Resolving codependency can restore your sense of self, foster healthy relationships, and offer freedom from addiction. Read More

The Power of Somatic Therapy

While traditional talk therapies can be beneficial in helping people uncover and heal from the trauma that underlies mental health and addiction, recent research has focused on the mind-body connection in relation to trauma. In fact, there is a whole realm of therapy that operates out of the belief that trauma is carried far more in the body than in the brain. Read More

Why Specialized Treatment Programs

Specialized addiction treatment programs can make all the difference when it comes to your long-term health and wellness. When looking for the right treatment facility, “becoming alcohol- or drug-free is only a beginning,” says the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). According to their standards, a quality treatment program is one that maximizes physical health, independently treats psychiatric disorders, improves psychological function while also addressing relationship and family issues. Your treatment program should see you as a complete and complex person with unique needs and offer you resources and tools for whole-life healing. Specialized treatment can do just this. Read More

What Is Brain Mapping, and How Does It Help?

Innovations in medical science have allowed us to gain a better understanding of the biological, genetic, and physiological aspects of disease, including mental health disorders. Neurodiagnostic tools are giving us a real-time window into brain function as it relates to cognitive processing and emotional regulation. The structure of the brain can affect how we think, just like how we think can affect the structure of the brain. Tools like brain mapping can be useful in both the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions, providing critical input and feedback to accelerate recovery. Read More

How Veterans Can Get Addiction Treatment with TRICARE

For anyone who doesn’t have a family member, colleague, or close friend who has served in the military, sometimes the only window into the unique challenges of a soldier’s life is from a big-budget blockbuster like 1917, Saving Private Ryan, or Platoon — or more detailed accounts found on the small screen, such as the miniseries Band of Brothers or The Pacific. The common thread in all these stories? Deployments are stressful and, not surprisingly, they take a serious toll on your body, mind, and the relationships that matter most. As a result, many service members develop unhealthy coping mechanisms like substance abuse, depression, and alcohol misuse, which can follow them into retirement and provide a new set of challenges.

Bad Therapy

Therapy is helpful … except when it isn’t. While getting therapy can be a critical part of addressing mental health issues, behavioral health problems, and a variety of life challenges, bad experiences with therapists can turn many people away from what is normally a lifeline for healing. It adds insult to injury when you are already dealing with personal challenges, and you may not be willing to open up again or persist in finding a better option. Read More
