Therapy Types at Greenhouse

Effective treatment for substance use disorders uses evidence-based modalities that have a proven track record for helping people find meaningful recovery from addiction.

This page will go over the therapies that our treatment specialists use at Greenhouse Treatment Center.

Our Therapies

Therapy lays the foundation for a lasting recovery, and at Greenhouse you’ll participate in both individual counseling and group therapy sessions led by our team of 14 master’s-level therapists. We use proven therapies that have been shown to improve outcomes for patients.

A specialized homework program and custom-tailored treatment plan is given to every client and guided by the assigned primary therapist. 

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational interviewing helps the patient move from ambivalent feelings about addiction treatment to a state of genuine desire for change and readiness for recovery. This therapy helps remind the person why they wanted to find recovery and build on those feelings as they put in the hard work needed to stay sober.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Used for decades cognitive behavioral therapy has a proven track record of effectiveness in treating addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Many individuals have harmful thinking patterns and thoughts that drive unhealthy behaviors. CBT encourages the client to address thought patterns and to eliminate or phase out the unhealthy ones.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

Similar to CBT, rational emotion behavior therapy can help the client identify recurring automatic negative thought patterns that are harmful and replace these negative thinking patterns with healthier ones.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This therapy type, which focuses on increasing a person’s psychological flexibility, has 3 main goals:

  • Increasing a person’s commitment to and ability to maintain behaviors driven by their values.
  • Helping a person accept their psychological events in order to reduce barriers to positive change.
  • Improving a person’s awareness of their environment—internal and external—through mindfulness practices to allow for better behavior choices.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy is often used for clients with co-occurring disorders and addiction, DBT helps clients learn new ways of coping with painful or negative emotions and develop skills to navigate conflicts.

Seeking Safety

Developed by Lisa M. Najavits, PhD, the seeking safety approach is appropriate for the patient who has experienced trauma, such as past sexual, emotional, or physical abuse. This program helps patients learn to cope in healthy ways that don’t involve substance use. Patients taking part in the Seeking Safety curriculum can count on their privacy being protected (for example group times and locations are kept confidential), as they work through very difficult and traumatic events.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, refers to the use of certain treatment medications in combination with therapy to treat addiction. Medications offered at Greenhouse include buprenorphine, Suboxone, and Vivitrol.

When it comes to administering any medications for addiction treatment, we are committed to providing the very best treatment for you as an individual.

Expressive and Holistic Therapies

Greenhouse has therapists who come in to work with patients to help them express their emotions in creative and healthy ways. Through expressive therapies such as art and music therapy, patients learn more productive ways to cope during early recovery and identify and manage triggers. Being able to express oneself in ways such as creating art is just one more tool in the recovery toolbox.

Because of the therapeutic environment, Greenhouse is able to offer a wealth of holistic therapies to promote recovery on a physical, spiritual, and emotional level. Whether you opt for yoga or meditation, Pilates or tai chi, fitness or spiritual reflection, Greenhouse can provide you the opportunity to participate in the holistic activity that most appeals to you.

Recovery Groups

Greenhouse clients have the opportunity to participate in recovery groups while in treatment. Groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous that follow the 12-step philosophy are extremely helpful for many people both new to recovery and those who have been in recovery for years. They provide 12 specific principles to live by in order to manage the compulsion to abuse substances.

Greenhouse also offers SMART Recovery, which is an alternative to the 12-step system found in many other recovery groups.

SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery is a specialized program for those who are uncomfortable with the 12-step model or the concept of a “higher power.” The SMART Recovery treatment program works by utilizing the following 4 strategies:

  1. Building and Maintaining Motivation
  2. Coping with Urges
  3. Managing Thoughts, Feelings, and Behaviors
  4. Living a Balanced Life

The methods used in SMART Recovery are designed to constantly evolve as research and knowledge on addiction treatment progress.

Patients in the SMART recovery program at Greenhouse meet Monday and Wednesday for evening sessions.
