Psychotherapy is the treatment of mental disorders by psychological means rather than medical means. It is a big part of the journey to recovery at JourneyPure in Kentucky.
Individual and group psychotherapy sessions have shown to be effective in treating a wide range of mental illnesses. We utilize several of the most popular scientifically backed forms of psychotherapy. Here are the forms of therapy you will find at JourneyPure Bowling Green.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that treats mental health issues by identifying and modifying dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors. It is a psycho-social intervention and the most widely used evidence-based practice for improving mental health.
Dialectical Behavior therapy (DBT) is designed mainly to help people with personality disorders. It emphasizes individual psychotherapy and group skills training classes to help clients learn and use the skills necessary for overcoming conflict and mitigating painful emotions.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a kind of therapy used to help clients identify self-defeating thoughts and feelings, challenging the rationality of those feelings, and replacing them with more productive ideas. According to REBT, it is largely our thinking about events that leads to emotional and behavioral problems.
Clinicians use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help resolve the residual effects of trauma in people’s lives. It works by creating a stimulation in the brain that breaks up traumatic memories so that they can be more easily processed. Learn more about EMDR here.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a new, totally non-invasive therapy. It acts by sending magnetic pulses into different areas of the brain in order to awaken neural pathways. Learn more about TMS here.
The 12 Steps, created by Alcoholics Anonymous, are used for many substance abuse and mental health issues. They include taking a fearless moral inventory of self, believing in a power greater than the self to restore sanity, and making amends to those that have been wronged either directly or indirectly due to the addicted behavior. Though heavy on spirituality, nonreligious people have found the 12 Steps helpful.
A favorite of JourneyPure Bowling Green clients, equine therapy involves clients undergoing a series of exercises with horses, which are known for their ability to read people’s positive or negative energy. Clients have the opportunity to see themselves through the horse’s eyes, identifying negative, aggressive, or self-sabotaging thoughts and actions.
A form of experiential therapy that dates back to the early 1900s, adventure therapy is an extremely fun way to find the needed focus to add stability to your life and recover from addiction. It involves a variety of physical challenges that help you overcome the inevitable obstacles you will face once treatment ends. You’ll climb, stretch, pull, and perform other physical tasks that increase your determination and help build trust within yourself.
Many individuals who come to JourneyPure in Kentucky have rocky histories when it comes to personal relationships. Fortunately, team-building exercises serve as a nice, low-risk place for clients to earn the trust of others and learn how to be trustworthy. Team-building exercises also promote mindful listening and camaraderie.
Therapeutic yoga can be a powerful tool in addiction recovery, promoting the connection of mind and body. Studies have suggested that yoga practice can reduce binge eating and drug and alcohol abuse when done regularly. Combining movement, breathing, stretching, and mindfulness, yoga offers untold holistic benefits.
