How does Therapy assist in recovery?

Detox alone will not lead to lasting change and it is just the first step in an addiction treatment plan. By introducing therapy early on in the recovery process, we can help address the underlying issues that may have caused or contributed to addictive behaviours. Many individuals addicted think that they can get sober by detox alone. Treatment goes much farther than refraining from drinking/using; it’s about discovering underlying causes of addiction and confronting them. Without addressing the reasons why a person seeks to drink and or use drugs increases the risk of relapse.

Detox without therapy can also increase risk in terms of overdose and/or physical damage. Should a patient not engage with therapy then they are at high risk of relapse- as above- and for example an opiate patient their tolerance will be low- when leaving a detox and therefore their overdose risk- High.

Many times people start using drugs and alcohol to mask psychological issues or trauma that they are not yet ready to deal with. Bringing those issues to light may be difficult, painful and dangerous and lead to relapse if therapy is not offered jointly and/or aftercare.

Our main goal in introducing therapies early on is to empower y our patients with knowledge, support and strategies to beat their addiction and truly heal their whole self—body, mind, and spirit.
