An understanding and supportive environment that is founded on evidence-based therapeutic interventions is going to do the patient the most good.

Widely accepted treatment platforms like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and other methodologies that lean on the principles of mindfulness offer the patient insight and a platform on which to grow.

Anyone who has experienced the uncertainty, devastation and fear of an addiction can relate to the hopelessness and self-loathing that often accompanies the unbreakable bond formed by addiction.

The individual addict who is suffering in an emotional void, without a spiritual anchor, and often without a strong personal sense of self, commonly feels debilitated and incapable when faced with there own longing, and inability, to change.  If you are considering a treatment program for a loved one, or for yourself, you owe it to yourself to carefully consider the perspective and philosophy of the body.  Are they encouraging, positive and dedicated to the ideals that you value in your life, or are they full of pessimism, negativity, despair and shame?

Having a perspective that’s free of condemnation, and in fact seeks out the positive, the strengths and the inherent value in every human life, is what can free an addict of the underlying issues that has brought them to the point of needing help.  Addiction, while it has a genetic and biological component, needs to be treated in conjunction with therapy for other mental health issues that might exist.  An understanding and supportive environment that is founded on evidence-based therapeutic interventions is going to do the patient the most good.  

Widely accepted treatment platforms like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and other methodologies that lean on the principles of mindfulness offer the patient insight and a platform on which to grow.  Rather than shaming behavior, the mindfulness-based therapies allow the patient to build self-awareness, focus on honesty, and can even help biologically rewire the brain for impulse control.  Stigmatization of the patient or shaming for past actions will not provide the patient with any firm ground on which to stand and from which to step forward.  When you are seeking out a treatment program for a family member, you want the focus to be on how to move that life forward, out of the addictive behaviors and thinking patterns that are causing pain.

During therapy, majority of time should be spent in a patient, safe environment that is free of distraction.  The more space the patient has to focus on developing new skills, the more effective the treatment will be.  In fact, stress management and emotional regulation should be a component of any training program that will help an individual overcome addiction.  Ultimately, treatment should be about creating a wonderful opportunity for self-esteem, acceptance, and strength.
