Evidence-Based Treatment Services

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the care you receive is improving your symptoms? When you come to Southeast Addiction Center Tennessee, you can expect that.

We use evidence-based treatment because it is the gold standard in treatment. This framework is easy to adjust because it’s been fine-tuned through comprehensive testing to treat various conditions.

This approach combines science-based research, your clinician’s expertise, and your needs. You collaborate with your care team to construct a tailored treatment plan. This builds a rock-solid foundation for long-term recovery. Treatment is an empowering path at Southeast Addiction Center Tennessee.

Our recovery center uses a variety of evidence-based treatments. Let’s take a look at some of these proven effective treatment modalities.

Specific Evidence-Based Treatment Services

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is powerful and shifts negative thoughts and behaviors. CBT targets the underlying thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs contributing to addiction. You and your therapist work together so you can unlearn self-defeating behaviors. This makes it easier to manage triggering situations healthily.

CBT is a vital therapy for addiction. This versatile therapy addresses specific issues, such as cravings and triggers.

CBT provides tools to manage sobriety and well-being. It combats relapse by teaching you how to identify, manage, and cope with stress.

Dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) identifies your strengths and the negative thoughts and behaviors hindering your recovery. DBT empowers you to regulate painful emotions, cope with stress, and communicate better.

DBT focuses on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and relationships with others. This therapy is beneficial for those struggling with addiction. You improve your strengths and overcome temptations by learning new skills and strategies.

Group therapy is another invaluable treatment service that CBT and DBT work with. Your therapist leads this session in a safe and structured environment. This setting provides a sense of connection and support. No one speaks over or interrupts each other in the group.

You can learn from the experience of others and adapt new coping strategies. The group can introduce fresh perspectives. Forming bonds can make you feel less alone and more supported. You can hold each other accountable to stay motivated while navigating recovery.

Family therapy brings the entire family together. Your therapist leads the session with your loved ones. Family therapy intends to recognize the often complicated nature of family systems. This method can help individuals in recovery rebuild trust with their loved ones.

Family therapy benefits addiction treatment by improving communication, reducing stress, and setting healthy boundaries. This strengthens your coping skills. It also addresses underlying family dynamics that may add to these issues.

Communicating in a healthy manner builds greater resilience and well-being. This format works well with other evidence-based treatments.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapies and counseling. This therapy can reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, improve retention in treatment, and reduce the risk of relapse.

MAT can be safe and effective under the care of qualified professionals. MAT is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The specific type of medication used and the span of treatment varies depending on your particular needs.

Research has shown that MAT is successful as part of a total treatment program. Like other forms of treatment, MAT is most effective with other supportive services, such as therapy and lifestyle changes.

Experiential therapy utilizes self-expression tools and activities to confront challenges to your long-term recovery. This therapy aims to find meaningful activities that resonate with you to engage in the therapeutic process.

Some of these activities can include:

  • Art therapy
  • Role-play therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Adventure therapy 

Your therapist guides you through the activity to process thoughts and emotions. They may ask open-ended questions, provide feedback, or encourage self-reflection.

This therapy is worthwhile for individuals with addiction because it engages the whole person – mind and body – and can help develop self-awareness and increases emotional intelligence. It is also used as a standalone therapy or with therapies like CBT or motivational interviewing (MI).

Our alum program is designed to keep clients connected and to provide support, guidance, and friendship after leaving treatment. The program aims to build bridges between those who have been helped in the past and those who are currently in treatment.

Individuals who have navigated the recovery process can offer inspiration, hope, and encouragement to those struggling with addiction. Both new and experienced individuals enjoy this program.

Staying in touch with a supportive community contributes to maintaining sobriety. It makes it easier to avoid triggers and temptations that lead to relapse.

Southeast Addiction alums are reliable, responsible, and committed to showing up when needed. This program is rewarding to everyone involved.
