Our Clinical Approach
All members of Alpha 180 are paired with a primary therapist that they will work with one-on-one for the duration of their stay. Therapy is individualized for the unique needs of each student and may adapt as needs change throughout the course of your stay.
Our experience shows that treating trauma is pivotal to achieving long-term recovery. ‘Trauma’ can refer to any experience, big or small, that made you feel unsafe in the world. When left untreated, individuals will continue to use anything they can to get that sense of safety, regularly turning back to alcohol and drugs. When it is an appropriate fit for the client, we offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR is a researched-based psychotherapy designed to alleviate distress caused by traumatic memories.
Many individuals that have experienced addiction struggle with feelings of shame. Our therapeutic approach is designed to help you uncover and utilize your unique strengths. As you navigate and overcome the challenges of early recovery, you and your therapist will work together to integrate these successes into your identity. The result is a feeling of confidence, gratitude, and excitement for the journey ahead!
