Unique Programs & Therapies Offered

Recovery from drug and alcohol abuse can be a difficult process. For many people, it is filled with anxiety and the fear of the unknown. At Banyan Chicago, we understand that while substance abuse is a chemical dependence on drugs and alcohol, it usually has psychological ties that reinforce this behavior. In order to find lasting success, these psychological issues need to be addressed and their ties severed.

Using several unique forms of addiction therapy, our Chicago addiction treatment programs help patients truly heal form substance abuse and build a strong foundation for lasting sobriety.

Our Different Types of Therapy for Drug Addiction in Chicago

Because substance abuse is a complex disease and recovery is different for everyone, we offer our patients a large mix of comprehensive behavioral therapies for drug abuse to ensure that everyone’s needs are met. These programs include proven treatment programming as well as nontraditional substance abuse therapies. Each program is led by a highly skilled clinical profession who is certified in their particular area of work. Our staff will also create a treatment plan for each individual patient that is tailored to their needs for the best results. Together, we effectively drive the recovery process.

Individual Psychotherapy Sessions

While our partial hospitalization program in Chicago helps people abstain from drugs and alcohol, it is also designed to help people analyze the root causes of their substance abuse problems. Psychotherapy or talk therapy is an effective means of promoting self-discovery and reflection to help patients get a better understanding of their addiction and themselves. Throughout treatment, patients will work one-on-one with their assigned therapist. The therapist may use several drug addiction counseling techniques such as dialectical behavioral and cognitive behavioral therapy to encourage the patient to look at their addiction from different angles and to promote comprehensive healing.

Group Therapy for Substance Abuse

Along with working individually, patients will also participate in various substance abuse group therapy meetings including the 12 Steps and SMART recovery. We also offer some nontraditional substance abuse group therapy activities such as art therapy programming. Group therapy helps build a community among the patients and provides them with peer support through their treatment.

Dual Diagnosis Programming

When someone suffers from both a mental health and substance abuse disorder simultaneously, it is known as a co-occurring disorder. If the mental illness is left untreated, the patient will never find lasting sobriety. Patients who are found to have both problems will be placed in our dual diagnosis treatment program so they can participate in both substance abuse and mental health therapies at the same time.

Family Therapy Options

Addiction is often described as a family disease because loved ones of the addict get dragged along for the ride. While patients are participating in drug addiction therapies during treatment and starting to heal, their families are often trying to figure out how to recover on their own. We offer help for family members of drug addicts by holding therapy sessions in Chicago with both the recovering addict and their loved ones. Our specialized therapist helps all parties heal and move forward with recovery efforts.

Recovery is an ongoing process, but the skills learned through these substance abuse therapies in Chicago can be applied to life after treatment.  If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction, help and a lifetime of sobriety could be one call away.
