About the Facility
Bucks County Psychological is a premier addiction psychology group practice offering substance abuse therapy, counseling, and consultation services to the Upper, Central and Lower Bucks County communities. We use evidence based approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy, relapse prevention, motivational interviewing , and harm reduction strategies to best serve our clientele .
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
