Midwood Addiction Treatment Philosophy
At Midwood Addiction Treatment center we focus on treating each individual differently. No two people struggle with the same issues or challenges when getting sober. We focus on not only treating the substance abuse issues but assisting with the mental health issues as well. Our goal is to go above and beyond for each and every client so that they can live a happy and healthy life.
Areas of Specialization
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Hands down the absolute best treatment center I have been to that has a team that actually cares. Nothing but smiles and open arms for those in need. I would recommend this facility to any addict seeking recovery. A great place to start a beautiful journey.
Midwood is such a great place, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to come here! The staff treat you like family and make you feel at home from day one. I am so grateful for this place and the impact they have already made in my life!! 5 stars isn't enough!!!
