One of the foundations to our way of approaching recovery is the belief that each person is unique, and their causes for addiction can be complex.
For those reasons, we don’t simply use a cookie cutter method to treat textbook symptoms of addiction. Instead, we examine each client’s history and specific underlying issues related to their substance use. This allows us to more thoroughly address the actual nature of their addiction and the underlying causes.
We have a variety of therapy tools that allow us to address the nature of each person’s substance use issues, including:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Mindfulness-based Therapy
- Experiential Therapy
Our treatment methods target the whole person and encompass healing for all aspects of each client’s wellbeing. This is considered Holistic Based Treatment, and this approach prioritizes:
- Therapy to support mental healing
- Physical activities to strengthen the body
- Nutritious meals to support the health of the mind and body
- Dual Diagnosis Treatment to address underlying mental health conditions
- Meditation as a non-medicinal source of relaxation
While we are a non 12 step rehab treatment center, we acknowledge that 12 step programs have helped many people achieve sobriety.
Because of this, we offer 12 step meetings and alternative 12 step meetings for our clients, along with a wide range of other recovery and healing-related activities.
At Oro House, we understand there are many different paths for achieving a sustainable recovery, and we support all of our clients in choosing the best path for them.
We offer many other alternative treatment options because we believe in their relevance and efficacy.
Alternative treatment methods empower clients to take charge of their life and behavior by making positive choices and experiencing their own agency, as well as appreciating their own value and ability to give back to the world.
Taking it a step further, alternative programs offer a fresh perspective, rather than compelling a client to continue using a method that hasn’t worked for them in the past.
The methods that we offer show our clients that there aren’t any overwhelming or impassable obstacles between them and their recovery, or between them and a sober life ahead.
Finally, our methods allow us to recognize the presence of a dual diagnosis, also known as a co-occurring disorder.
A dual diagnosis condition occurs when substance addiction coincides with another mental health issue like:
- PTSD or Related Trauma
- Bipolar Disorder
This can make recovery more complex, since both issues must be addressed together to ensure that recovery is balanced and successful.
Despite the added complexity of dual diagnosis treatment, it is much more effective to identify and treat the presence of a co-occurring disorder rather than ignoring the fact that addiction may coincide with other mental health conditions.
