Services Available at our Drug Addiction Treatment Centers

Every patient needs a personalized approach to treatment to have the best chance of success. Depending on your type of addiction and personal situation, you might receive services such as:

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment: Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) begins with a physical and mental exam. Then, patients will be prescribed prescription drugs as part of their treatment to assist with withdrawal symptoms and relapse prevention. 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy is a short-term program that helps you change your thinking, beliefs and values. This program will also teach you invaluable coping skills that will help you throughout your recovery journey.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy: Dialectical behavior therapy focuses on healing the whole person — body, mind and spirit — through seven main components. One of the primary skills you’ll learn is how to regulate your emotions. 
  • Co-occurring disorders treatment: Our Aurora rehab center provides customized care for those dealing with co-occurring disorders. We’ll identify the connection between the disorders and develop a treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
  • Seeking Safety program: Through our Seeking Safety program, those with substance use disorders and trauma will learn real-world skills that will help them feel safe in uncomfortable or high-risk situations.
  • 12-Step Facilitation: As part of this evidence-based curriculum, patients will be actively involved in a 12-step fellowship (TSF Manual) focused on reducing substance use.
  • Mindfulness-Based Sobriety: Through Mindfulness-Based Sobriety, patients will learn how to develop a mindset that focuses on the here and now and discover how to progress while staying sober. 
  • Motivational Interviewing: Motivational Interviewing is an engaging therapy that helps patients focus on the positives of sobriety while determining how to make the necessary changes. 

Your care plan may involve a combination of these services to help you get the most out of treatment. We’ll work with you to find the best solution for your symptoms at our Aurora recovery center.
