Based on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) Best Practice Models of treatment, our professional staff offers a behavioral trauma-based model of residential treatment services for women that includes the following:
Alcohol and substance use behaviors are usually related to other major problems in a person’s life. Cognitive Behavioral Coping Skills Therapy helps clients address the broader spectrum of underlying problems that precipitate substance use, including interpersonal difficulties or interpersonal discomfort such as anger or depression. Emphasis is placed on helping clients overcome skill deficits and helping them increase their ability to cope with high-risk situations that commonly trigger relapse.
Seeking Safety is an integrated treatment designed to work on both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse simultaneously with the goal of helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior and emotions.
Most individuals have conflicting feelings about their substance use. They realize that their behavior is destructive and unhealthy, yet they cannot stop using substances. At The Haven, we utilize Motivational Interviewing to help clients examine and resolve their ambivalence towards their substance use and reach a place where they are ready to build a plan for positive change.
Relapse Prevention is an important component in the treatment of alcohol and substance use dependence. The goal of Relapse Prevention is to identify and prevent high-risk situations by teaching individuals how to recognize and anticipate those risks and provide them with the copying skills necessary to help them avoid a relapse.
