Treatment Modalities

A key distinguishing characteristic of Liberty’s Residential, Day and Outpatient Treatment Addiction Therapy Programs is the focus on helping each client recognize and find solutions to the underlying cause of the addiction.

This is achieved by identifying, assessment and treatment of a client’s Co-Occurring Mental Health Issues by the Company’s Board Certified Psychiatrist, Psychologist and other appropriately licensed mental and family health therapists in addition to treating the individual’s addiction.

The following is an overview of some of the addiction therapy treatment modalities available at Liberty, with other modalities also called upon depending on the needs and preferences of the client.

Gender-Specific Group Therapy

Group addiction therapy provides an opportunity for women to relate to other women and men to men. This allows the gender to develop close, caring, relationships, and pursue mutual goals, safely address concerns and discuss relevant and controversial topics. This leads to an opportunity to express their emotions to other individuals of their gender, thus building intimacy and trust. Clients learn how her life can improve with treatment and group involvement, instilling hope.

Individual Psychotherapy/Counseling

All Clients are given the opportunity to elect for individual counseling to assist with additional support, or to discuss personal issues that they may not feel comfortable addressing in a group setting. Some Clients may need individual counseling based on comorbid disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc.

Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)

MRT is a systematic treatment strategy that seeks to increase moral reasoning and lead to positive, sustainable behavior. It focuses on seven basic treatment issues: the confrontation of beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors; assessment of current relationships; reinforcement of positive behavior and habits; positive identity formation; enhancement of self-concept; decrease in self-indulgence and development of frustration tolerance; and development of higher stages of moral reasoning.

EMDR and ART

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can, in fact, heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

A type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter negative behavior patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression. An addiction therapy that replaces cognitive distortion, thinking errors and self-defeating behavior, emotional distress, and low self-esteem with adaptive coping strategies such as self-regulation techniques, problem-solving strategies, positive thinking, and/or adaptive behavior.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy teaches the Client to identify, evaluate, dispute, and act against his or her irrational self-defeating beliefs, thus helping the Client to not only feel better but to stay better, and carry effective self-recognition skills and coping tools into life post-treatment.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

MI is a collaborative, therapeutic conversation between trained clinicians and clients that addresses the resistance to change. Its purpose is to strengthen the client’s own motivation for and commitment to change in a way that fits with their values. Instead of attempting to force change, we “meet the client where the client is” and help them move toward their goals by identifying and building on what motivates them to change.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT teaches clients how to regulate their emotions to reduce the self-destructive behaviors that derive from extreme, intense emotions. DBT is easily customizable to address a variety of needs and focuses on the development of four key skill sets: distress tolerance; emotion regulation; mindfulness (to live in the moment and fully experience emotions); interpersonal effectiveness.

Seeking Safety (And Other Trauma-Focused Therapies)

Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy that helps clients attain safety from trauma (including PTSD) and substance abuse by emphasizing coping skills, grounding techniques and education. This highly effective, research-based therapy has several key principles which, to name a few, include: helping clients attain safety in their thinking, emotions, behaviors, and relationships; integrated treatment of substance conditions and trauma; how to counteract the loss of ideals that is experienced in both trauma and substance abuse.

AA 12 Steps and LDS 12 Step Program

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is a global, not-for-profit program created to help those struggling with problematic drinking get sober. Its concept revolves around that premise that alcoholism is an illness that can be managed through specific actions and reliance on God, but not controlled.

Liberty gives clients the option to participate in the program, whether it be for alcohol (AA), narcotics (NA), gambling (GA) or the LDS 12 Step program.

Spirituality

Clients will have the opportunity to participate in discussion groups that will assist them to understand their purpose in life and the source of power available to them from God or what they understand as a higher power, and the healing that comes from service and a focus on others.

Recreational Activities & Experiential Learning

The following activities include but are not limited to art therapy, rock climbing, music therapy and community service, hiking, nature walks, and other activities.
