What is addiction therapy?

Addiction therapy addresses the psychological effects of addiction. Addiction is a chronic disease of the brain that affects how you think, feel, and behave. 

Addiction therapy helps you understand your disease and develop skills that lead to long-term sobriety.

Magnolia Medical Group uses the harm reduction protocol to treat substance use disorders, offering compassionate, judgment-free care in a safe environment. The team includes licensed professionals who specialize in addiction therapy. 

Why do I need addiction therapy?

Addiction therapy helps you develop life skills that support your recovery and reduce your risk of relapse. The psychological and social effects of substance use disorders are difficult to overcome on your own. 

Even when you’re no longer physically dependent on the drug, you may find it hard to resist using it if it's how you cope with stress, celebrate wins, or socialize. Addiction therapy helps you identify the factors that trigger your drug or alcohol and how to better manage those triggers.

Addiction therapy at Magnolia Medical Group also identifies underlying mental health conditions contributing to your substance use disorder. People with an untreated mental illness may turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate. 

Additionally, drugs and alcohol cause mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Treating these mental health conditions is vital to your recovery. 

I’m worried about relapsing. What types of addiction therapy can help? 

Your substance use counselor at Magnolia Medical Group customizes your addiction therapy based on your disorder, mental health, personal needs, and goals. There’s no one-size-fits-all when recovering from an addiction.

Some of the addiction therapies the team at Magnolia Medical Group uses to reduce your risk of relapse include:

Individual counseling

One-on-one counseling is an important part of addiction therapy. Your counselor uses evidence-based therapies to help you develop the skills to live a sober life.

Group therapy for addiction

Group therapy for addiction gives you an opportunity to share and learn from those going through the same struggles as you. 

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)

Magnolia Medical Group is a medication-assisted treatment practice. They combine medications with substance use counseling to treat the physical and psychological aspects of your addiction. 

Addiction is a disease, not a moral failing.
