Experiential Therapies

How Experiential Therapies Are Used to Address Hidden Emotions

Along with offering the most effective traditional therapies for addiction recovery, Sprout Health Florida also offers experiential therapies that have proven effective at increasing an individual’s quality of life after the completion of treatment. These experiential therapies focus on teaching individuals how to center themselves, stay calm, deal with subconscious issues, and maintain mental and physical shape.

Teaching Calmness

The main goal of experiential therapies is to teach calmness and help an individual with their sense of self-control. In increasing the problem-solving abilities of individuals, these therapies achieve their goal of providing self-control, and are a very useful treatment. These therapies also teach the individual to reconnect with their emotions and feelings that were suppressed by their addiction. In reconnecting with their subconscious, individuals can better plan their future, and look forward to being able to experience the correct emotional responses.

The Basis of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral therapy focuses on the functions of the mind, and the relationship between behavior, feelings, and thoughts. The purpose of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is to help an individual identify their unhealthy thought patterns. After identifying these patterns, the issues can be addressed by helping the individual develop better thought patterns and ensure the new patterns don’t lead to self-destructive behaviors.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help an individual deal with low self-esteem, and help them to feel more positively about themselves. Proper treatment from a certified facility is crucial because these individuals are skilled at identifying negative thoughts, and helping individuals experience more positive thoughts. In teaching individuals to think positive, we aim to make it a constant habit, allowing it to produce positive behaviors.

An abundance of the challenges an addicted person faces stem from issues around their home life. Family members are not necessarily to blame, but they do have to experience the individual while that person is under the influence, and often the family plays an active role in the afflicted person’s addiction. In family therapy, family members are taught how to identify signs of addiction, substance abuse, and their personal role in aiding the addicted person. Family members are also taught how to remove themselves from the addiction and dependence, and how to properly support the individual as they recover. Finally, family therapy focuses on bridging lost connection between family members, and teaching family members to attribute the right emotions and responses to the addicted individual’s actions.

Not every family member must participate in family therapy, but it is always recommended. Unlike our drug treatment program, our family therapy is a short-term program. Depending on the family members involvements with the addicted individual, and the amount of participation the family is willing to offer, the length of the sessions will increase.

Our family therapy sessions are administered by our clinical professionals, who have been trained and certified.

Outdoor Therapies

Being outdoors and in touch with nature can be very helpful an individual’s mental health, especially for individuals fighting addiction. Our outdoor therapies may include hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, or many other outdoors activities that help an individual form a stronger tie to nature. Aside from participating in solo activities, there are also team activities that help individuals experience teamwork, and the concept of taking responsibility for their actions in a group setting and learning how their actions will impact the dynamic of the group and the feelings of others. In participating in the therapies an individual will raise their Self-esteem, levels of joy, and gain a sense of belonging that will help speed the individual toward recovery. These programs are designed to help individuals develop skills and utilize them to deal with difficult situations.

Meditation and Yoga

The simplest form of medication consists of focusing on breathing in and out. Though there are many misconceptions about the practice, it really doesn’t require any extreme measures. This natural process helps individuals improve their concentration, focus, and cognition. Their mental abilities are tested by performing a simple task, one that is constantly done, and frequently overlooked. Along with improving mental abilities, meditating daily has been proven to reduce stress levels.

In combination with meditation, yoga is frequently used. Though when we think of Yoga, we only consider its benefits in increasing levels of fitness and flexibility. In eastern medicine, Yoga is looked at as much more. It is used as an exercise to increase an individual’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. The exercise itself incorporates breathing techniques, meditation, and practicing postures. When practiced correctly, Yoga helps promote balance and harmony across the multiple platforms of an individual’s life.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a technology used to help our medical professionals determine if an individual is dealing with any neurological issues as a result of PTSD, sleeping issues, brain surgery, a stroke, concussions, etc. The process consists of monitoring the brain and the signals it outputs, and determining in which areas it is not functioning correctly. In finding out where the improper functioning is, we are able to determine the best course of therapy in order to provide the individual with the best chances for rehabilitation.

Group Therapies

Our group therapy is used as an effective tool for helping individuals recover from addiction. These groups are typically comprised of six to eight participants, who meet face-to-face with one or several trained and certified group therapists. Participants are given the option to share their own feelings, and listen to feelings and emotions others are experiencing. After listening group members have an opportunity to openly provide feedback, support, and constructive criticism. Group therapy sessions are confidential, and all members agree not to divulge the identity of other members or repeat any of the personal information shared during the meeting.

Equine Therapyshutterstock_231314794

Equine therapy is a treatment that focuses on teaching an individual to care for a horse. The individual learns to daily feed, groom, and exercise for the horse. Most of the time, these are all things the individual has forgotten to do for themselves. After learning these skills and practicing them daily on horses, the behaviors are slowly transitioned to be applied to themselves.
