Cold Creek Addiction Treatment Therapies

Cold Creek Behavioral Health’s successful treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction is based on decades of research, studying and applying what works in addiction recovery. Just as no two addictions are identical, no clients’ treatment programs should be the same either. There are a variety of addiction treatment therapies, and our expert staff will work with each client individually to create the most effective treatment plan.
Each client receives a comprehensive intake evaluation that allows therapists to identify the root causes of addiction. Based on these results, our expert team creates a drug and/or alcohol therapy plan that sets our residents up for success. Cold Creek Behavioral uses a full range of evidence-based and comprehensive therapies that are recognized by Columbia University and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The methodology of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) includes two dimensions: Learned Behaviors and Interpretation of Events. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, clients understand what they believe about the world, other people and themselves and how those beliefs may be limiting them. They also see how their actions affect their thoughts and feelings. With CBT, clients can learn effective coping strategies for real-life situations as well as issues such as low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, panic attacks, eating disorders and much more.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Originally developed by Marsha Lineham for the treatment of borderline personality disorder, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has recently been investigated as a therapy for addiction disorders like alcoholism. The symptoms of borderline personality disorder, including self-harm, depression and suicidality, often parallel behaviors of alcoholics. DBT therapists seek to give clients the skills necessary to handle stresses and strains of life – sober.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

A common response to traumatic or distressing memories is to repress or avoid them. However, repressed memories have a way of affecting us, no matter how deep we’ve “buried” them. Our expert team uses EMDR to help clients deal with these “repressed” memories. With EMDR, clients are guided to allow repressed or unprocessed memories to surface and then address these memories in a ways that substantially reduces their future impact. If trauma or PTSD is thought to contribute to clients’ addiction, their counselor will likely include EMDR in their treatment plan.
