The disease of addiction affects the physical, emotional, spiritual and behavioral aspects of a person’s life. Our staff use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help clients address these issues.
Group therapy sessions focus on identifying the symptoms and patterns of addiction. The group process also helps clients understand the impact their addiction has had on family members and others. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is taught to help clients identify, challenge and change faulty thinking patterns. Gender specific groups are conducted to help clients address gender related issues. Relapse Prevention, Life Skills and 12-step are other groups conducted.
Each client is assigned a therapist upon admission to Koinonia. The therapist works with the client as a team to develop treatment goals. The individual therapist will also work with the client’s family and support system throughout treatment to provide education and support. Discharge planning is an important step in the treatment process. The therapist will work with the client to help set up aftercare services for when the client returns to their community.
At Koinonia, we understand the many ways that addiction can impact the entire family, and we appreciate the role that family members play in the recovery process.
