Group Therapy

Our program harnesses the power of group dynamics as a vital component in treating substance abuse and Dual Diagnosis.

Our clients experience the benefits of group therapy, gaining valuable insights into their conditions alongside their peers.

Dialectial Behavior Therapy

West Side Recovery prioritizes treating mood disorders and psychiatric issues with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an Evidence-Based Therapy known for its effectiveness in managing intense emotions.

DBT is a crucial technique in our approach to substance abuse and Dual Diagnosis treatment. It teaches individuals effective methods for regulating emotions and modifying behaviors, making it an invaluable asset in addressing both addiction and mental health challenges.

By incorporating DBT into our Personalized Treatment Plans, we aid our clients in adopting healthier lifestyles, which is essential for lasting recovery and enhanced mental well-being.

Family Therapy

We understand the pivotal role of family involvement in treating addiction and mental health issues, making it a key component of our Personalized Treatment Plans.

Recognizing that family dynamics are often intertwined with the development and resolution of these challenges, we integrate Family Therapy into our approach. Our experienced therapists engage with families, aiming to uncover and address underlying issues, enhance communication, and establish effective coping strategies.

This inclusive and supportive environment fosters a collaborative approach to recovery, significantly increasing the chances of lasting positive outcomes.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an established and effective psychotherapy technique utilized at West Side Recovery, focusing on helping individuals identify and transform negative thought and behavior patterns.

CBT is especially beneficial for those dealing with anxiety and depression, guiding them towards healthier thought processes and responses to life’s challenges, and away from addictive behaviors.

As part of our Evidence-Based Therapies, CBT plays a crucial role in our approach to Dual Diagnosis treatment, addressing both addiction and mental health issues.

Our skilled therapists are dedicated to developing Personalized Treatment Plans, ensuring each individual’s unique needs and circumstances are met.
