PRIVATE THERAPY: CBT, DBT, EMDR, Emotive, Relational and more…

Private therapy is at the very core of the drug and alcohol addiction treatment process


As one of Arizona’s leaders in drug and alcohol addiction treatment, it is incumbent upon us to do all we can when it comes educating clients and families on the various approaches of private therapy services. There have been a number of new therapy types introduced over the past 2 decades or so; and as drug and alcohol addiction has become more prevalent there has likewise been a slew of many new providers.

In general, when looking at private therapy practitioners, the most common types are: MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist), LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker), LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor), drug & alcohol counselors, psychologists and clinical psychologists. Most residential, PHP and IOP drug & alcohol rehab centers have various types of therapists on staff or at least contracted. Here in Arizona, especially within the confines of an addiction treatment environment, it is very common to receive private therapy services from LPC’s, LMFT’s and LCSW’s.

When it comes to treating matters of substance abuse and dual-diagnsosis/co-occurring disorders, there are a variety of therapy-types that tend to be most commonly utilized:

  • CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • DBT – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
  • REBT – Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Integrative Approach
  • Matrix Model

There are actually many other types of private therapy out there, we have simply listed some of the more common ones being utilized within the scope of addiction and alcoholism treatment services.

Here at Illuminate Recovery Center we actually utilize a variety of customized hybrid approaches. We look at each individual client, their addictive patterns, their upbringing and environment, their strengths and weaknesses and many other elements, and from there we create a treatment plan that will be best suited to address their unique set of clinical and environmental needs.

There is so much more that we could say about the topic of private therapy, and as we know more about your specific situation we will be able to comment much further as to the more effective approaches. Drug and alcohol addiction can be a very complex illness in some cases, and while much information can be conveyed on a general clinical level, when looking at actual treatment plans we must first get to know the client as well as his or her specific set of needs.
