Addiction therapy is like a snowflake, no two treatment plans are alike. While many people might have similar addictions, everyone has their own unique methods that work best for them and their needs. Addiction therapy services in Anaheim, CA can vary based on various factors such as substance abuse, mental health status, and the type of treatment program that best fits a person’s needs.
Keep reading to learn about the different addiction therapy services we offer at Restorations Health Group.
What Are Addiction Therapies?
As the name suggests, addiction therapies are therapy programs specifically designed to help those suffering from addiction. Addiction therapy typically begins after the detox process has been completed. Therapy is an integral part of inpatient and outpatient treatment and can even be continued on your own after treatment has been completed.
While psychotherapy has been proven to be the most effective type of therapy for treating substance abuse and addiction issues, non-traditional therapies have also become more popular in recent years.

Types of Therapies We Offer
Upon entering treatment at Restoration Health Group, your treatment professional will sit down with you and create a treatment plan, complete with various therapies, that is custom-made to tailor to you and your needs. These therapy sessions will be conducted in both individual and group settings depending on the type of therapy session you attend.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is a form of psychotherapy. As is the case with other psychotherapies, DBT is used to help identify the triggers that lead to addiction in the first place. Through dialectical behavioral therapy, the patient can also learn new, healthier ways of dealing with these same triggers or cravings in the future.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has been proven effective in treating those suffering from mental health conditions, including co-occurring disorders.
Some of the mental health conditions that DBT has helped treat include:
- Borderline personality disorder
- Mood disorders
- Binge eating
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Another popular type of psychotherapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Much like DBT does, CBT is used to help identify the negative thought patterns that might have led to mental health and addiction issues and address them in more positive, healthy ways.
CBT is often the therapy used because it can quickly identify specific issues and requires fewer sessions. CBT can help with treating not just addiction issues but emotional and mental health issues as well.
Oftentimes, addiction affects more than just the person suffering from addiction. It also affects those closest to the addict some as friends, family members, and loved ones. Family therapy is designed to help those family members of the person suffering from an addiction, such as spouses, children, and other direct relatives.
The goal of family therapy is to provide the family members of an addict with a safe space to work through issues related to their family member’s addiction. Family therapy can also help those family members of the addict better understand what he or she is going through and help them work through any relationship or family issues.
Addiction is not just a physical disease, it is a mental one as well. While the detox process helps address the physical side of addiction, psychotherapy helps to address the mental side. Psychotherapy allows a person to talk through their issues, often in a private one-on-one setting.
Some popular forms of psychotherapy used to treat addiction that we offer at Restoration Health Group include CBT and DBT.
While traditional therapy methods are valuable and have proven successful, some people respond better to alternative forms of treatment. One of those alternative forms of treatment is experiential therapy.
Not everyone is good at talking through their problems. Some people express themselves better through more creative approaches. Experiential therapy focuses on that creativity and channels it in a therapeutic way.
Examples of experiential therapy include:
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
- Writing therapy
- Drama or theater therapy
Adventure therapy is designed to get those in addiction treatment outside so that they can become one with nature. While sitting in a room with a therapist, whether it be in a group or individual setting, might feel tedious at times, adventure therapy provides another way for those in therapy to learn more about themselves in a fun environment.
Activities that can be done with adventure therapy include:
- Rock climbing
- Camping (also known as wilderness therapy)
Effectiveness of Addiction Therapy
It’s important to remember that addiction is a disease, and like any other disease, it can be treated. That said, addiction therapy is only as effective as you make it. If you put in the time and effort and make the most out of your therapy sessions, your overall therapy and treatment process will be beneficial. On the flip side, someone just going through the motions will not get the same experience from their treatment.
It’s also important to remember that therapy doesn’t always end once inpatient or outpatient treatment ends. Sobriety is a lifelong process that requires constant effort. That’s why various aftercare programs and support groups are available for those in recovery to stay successful with their sobriety.
Paying For Addiction Therapy and Treatment
The most important thing in addiction therapy and treatment is getting the needed help. That being said, some may worry about how they will pay for their treatment.
The cost of therapy and treatment can vary based on a person’s needs and the type of treatment they get. Inpatient treatment tends to cost more than outpatient treatment since you are living at the facility for the duration of treatment.
If you need treatment and are concerned about cost, a few different options are available.
Today, most major insurance providers cover addiction treatment and therapy. While the full amount might not be covered, most insurance companies will cover at least a portion of treatment, making it more affordable for the person entering treatment.
If you are unsure what is and isn’t covered by your insurance plan, you can either reach out to your insurance representative or contact us through our insurance verification page. We will look at your policy and review any out-of-pocket expenses you might incur before you begin treatment.
If you don’t have insurance or want to keep your addiction treatment as private and confidential as possible, you can also become a private pay client. For questions about payment options, including payment plans, contact us today.
