At Bedrock Recovery Center, addiction recovery or mental health treatment begins with learning about your situation through an assessment. Once your care needs and recovery goals have been established, you and your care team will discuss treatment options to include in your personalized treatment plan.

Many of these options will be evidence-based, meaning that a large amount of scientific research supports their effectiveness.

Our Evidence-Based Treatment Options

Evidence-based treatments can help you stabilize during a crisis or during withdrawal, reduce the risk of relapse by up to 50%, and prepare you for life in recovery.

Every individualized treatment plan at BRC includes multidisciplinary interventions backed by science for treating substance use disorders or mental health disorders, such as stabilization services, evidence-based behavioral therapy, peer support, and aftercare planning.

Our research-backed treatment options include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • community reinforcement approach (CRA)
  • dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • dual diagnosis treatment
  • family psychoeducation therapy
  • group therapy
  • medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT)
  • motivational interviewing (MI)
  • trauma-informed therapy
  • 12-step and other support groups

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT can help you change unwanted behaviors by identifying and changing the thoughts or beliefs behind them.

Through CBT sessions, you’ll learn how to:

  • Cope with hard situations by challenging your thoughts.
  • Recognize and re-evaluate when your thoughts are not helpful.
  • Reframe your thoughts before they affect your behavior.
  • Better understand your own behavior and motivation, and that of others.

Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA)

Through CRA, you can experience for yourself that addiction recovery doesn’t have to feel like a chore, but can in fact even be fun. Developed over 50 years ago, this evidence-backed approach is based on viewing and treating recovery not as punishment but as a way to meet your social and emotional needs in a healthy way. It involves analyzing where you are in life today and learning skills to get where you want to go.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT teaches you how to cope with addiction, mental health issues, or a co-occurring disorder and live a fulfilling life in recovery despite the emotional challenges.

DBT teaches you four core skills:

  • Mindfulness: The primary skill in DBT, mindfulness is the ability to observe your thoughts, emotions, and environment from a neutral, non-judgmental perspective.
  • Distress Tolerance: Through this skill, you’ll learn to accept challenging situations by responding in healthy ways instead of reacting out of habit.
  • Emotional Regulation: DBT teaches you to recognize your emotions, call them out when they’re unproductive, and process them so that they don’t control your behavior.
  • Interpersonal Skills: DBT helps you strengthen your ability to communicate effectively and create and respect personal boundaries for healthy relationships.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

At Bedrock, we offer an integrated dual disorder treatment (IDDT) model for the treatment of substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, providing comprehensive care under one roof, through one multidisciplinary team. Both your addiction and your co-occurring disorder are treated simultaneously for the best results.

Having the same care team available for the duration of your treatment program comes with many benefits, including knowledge sharing for improved outcomes and even reduced costs, due to eliminating duplicate services. For people prescribed medications either before or after arriving at BRC, continual monitoring by our medical team during your stay can help make sure that the desired outcomes are achieved, with few or no side effects.

Family Psychoeducation Therapy

Family psychoeducational therapy helps your supportive family members or other close loved ones become engaged in your recovery. Your therapist may involve you in some of the sessions or may only require your family members to attend. During sessions, your family will learn more about your disorder, how best to support you, and how to take care of themselves in the process.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is one of the most effective treatment options available for recovering from drug or alcohol addiction or another mental health disorder. Led by master’s-level clinicians, group sessions at BRC provide the opportunity to connect with peers facing similar situations, feel less alone, express yourself in a safe and supportive environment, and build the skills necessary for lasting recovery.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

If you are facing alcohol or opioid addiction, MAT services may be a viable option for your recovery. Medication-assisted treatment uses FDA-approved medications combined with behavioral therapy and other psychosocial support for a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to recovery. If you are a good candidate for this pathway, our MAT coordinator will meet with you and possibly other members of your care team to discuss this option.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT is a behavioral treatment that combines elements of both cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices. CBT is widely considered the most popular and effective form of psychotherapy, and mindfulness practices have been used for centuries by Eastern cultures to improve quality of life.

MBCT can help you become self-empowered through learning emotional regulation, self-awareness, resilience, and behavior modification.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational Interviewing is a goal-focused technique that helps you commit to recovery and strengthen your resolve to that commitment by discovering your own motivations for doing so. For this to happen, your therapist will recognize you as their equal, establishing the two of you as a team working together toward the same goal. MI is marked by this spirit of partnership as well as by acceptance, compassion, and evocation, or the drawing out of your strengths, values, and motivations.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

Often the result of a terrifying experience, such as sexual abuse, combat, physical violence, childhood abuse or neglect, or a natural disaster, trauma can have lasting effects and lead to the development of drug or alcohol addiction or another mental health disorder.

Through trauma-informed therapy at BRC, you can begin to feel safe and confident again. Our therapists provide tools that empower you to face triggering situations and cope with difficult emotions in a healthy way, reducing their power over you.

12-Step And Other Support Groups

Peer support during recovery can take many shapes, with 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) being the most widely recognized forms. In addition to AA and NA, we offer other 12-step approaches, including Celebrate Recovery, but also non-12-step, nonsecular peer support groups, such as Refuge Recovery and SMART Recovery. Still other options include groups for specific populations, such as young adult groups, LGBTQ+ groups, depression or other mental health disorder groups, MAT groups, and more.
