Meet the Person Where They Are At
Addiction is a widespread disease, yet there isn’t just one way to treat it. Science has proven again and again that addiction care requires a personalized approach, wherein the therapeutic model is tailored to meet the needs of the individual. That’s why Experience Recovery offers custom care, refusing to take a “one size fits all” approach.
The process begins with an assessment, which allows our addiction recovery specialists to learn more about the individual, about the extent of addiction, and about any possible co-morbidities. This assessment can be done either over the phone or face-to-face, in a comfortable and private clinical setting.
Evaluations involve input from a multidisciplinary team, though the process is always confidential. Our role is to help those who seek freedom from addiction, and through the evaluation process we are able to work with them to map out a blueprint for recovery—a complete therapeutic program that’s tailored to the individual, backed by clinical data, and designed to open the door to long-term recovery.
The evaluation process encompasses mental health, but also physical, spiritual, and emotional symptoms—and its result is a clear understanding of the next steps in the process, the safest and more effective way to assist the client in obtaining sobriety.
The approach is never cookie-cutter. We care about people—not just lists of symptoms—and are happy to meet them where they are. Learn more, or schedule an assessment, by contacting Experience Recovery today.
Coordination of Care
Experience Recovery believes in treating the whole person. While you are in treatment you will be assigned a Case Manager. This provides complete coordination of care and will allow us to match the appropriate services to your needs as necessary. Coordination of care can address potential gaps in meeting clients interrelated medical, social, developmental, behavioral, educational, informal support system, in order to achieve optimal health, wellness and quality of life.
We extend this coordination of care even to specialists our clients meet with after leaving our inpatient program—for example, the therapist or primary care physicians of their choice. It is important for the patient to have all their clinicians on the same page, and that’s something we emphasize through clear communication and thorough documentation.
Experience Recovery prioritizes a data-backed approach that is tailored to the client’s needs—and when different providers are involved, we also emphasize a seamless, harmonious spectrum of care. Learn more by contacting Experience Recovery today.

Cognitive Behavioral Health
For women and men battling addiction, we recommend treatment methods that are scientifically backed and historically proven to get results. In this regard, there are few therapeutic models more promising than cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, which is a long-established psychiatric model that can unlock the door to ongoing recovery.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a practical approach to examine your thoughts and beliefs that are behind your difficulties. Experience Recovery staff is trained on providing CBT and provides this hands on practical approach to problem solving. CBT has many assets that distinguish it from other therapeutic models: It is problem-focused, centered on the present situation, and time-limited. It hinges on the idea that distorted perceptions can lead to addiction and other self-destructive impulses. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, individuals can work with a therapist and learn how to reset their own perspectives, ultimately making positive changes in their lives.
CBT is discussion-based, private, and low-key. Individuals meet with a skilled addiction recovery specialist to talk about their emotions and current difficulties they are facing; there may also be some “homework” assigned between sessions. Through regular sessions, individuals can effectively rewire the way they look at things, and reduce the impact of addictive impulses.
This is one of various therapeutic models we endorse at Experience Recovery; to learn which models are best for your needs, we invite you to contact our team and begin the work of developing a scientifically-backed and completely customized recovery plan.
Whether through CBT or another therapeutic model, you can change your outlook—and begin a new life free of addiction activities.
Dialectal Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a therapy that is designed to help people suffering from mood disorders as well as those who need to change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as addiction. This approach will help to increase your emotional and cognitive regulation by learning about the triggers that have led to unhealthy behaviors. DBT is a skilled based, evidence-based practice and is offered in both individual and group formats. Experience Recovery combines the concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, emotion regulation and mindfulness to assist you in your recovery.
As with everything we do at Experience Recovery, DBT is medically backed and scientifically proven. It has been shown time and time again to produce results and to help in the treatment of many mental health disorders, including addiction.
Many of our clients relish their DBT sessions because it allows them to focus on practicalities—skills training, coping mechanisms, and concrete plans for battling addiction. The sessions themselves involve both hands-on activities as well as one-on-one therapies.
Through DBT, individuals can experience reduced withdrawal symptoms; diminished cravings; and the development of skills used throughout the recovery journey. What’s more, DBT can provide encouragement, community, and support.
Experience Recovery customizes our treatment plans to each client’s needs—and DBT may or may not be the best course of action for you or your loved one. Find out more about the pursuit of recovery; contact Experience Recovery today.
Individual therapy is an integral part of addiction recovery, as it provides a comfortable, confidential environment in which individuals may address personal concerns in a one-on-one counseling environment. Experience Recovery emphasizes this approach to all clients and ensures that each one is paired with a compassionate counselor with in-depth knowledge of the addiction recovery process.
For men who are hesitant to discuss their experiences in a public setting, one-on-one therapy is especially critical. During private sessions with a counselor, our clients will:
- Assess their personal and relational habits
- Set personal goals for themselves
- Zero in on their personal strengths
- Bring healing to areas of personal trauma or shame
- Develop self-love, self-worth, and a zeal for self-improvement
Individual therapy is just part of the healing journey, which may also include group therapy sessions and different clinical modalities. To learn more about the role of individual therapy in addiction recovery, contact Experience Recovery today.
