ACT in Substance Abuse Treatment
Valor Behavioral Health: Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse is a complex and challenging issue that affects millions of people across the United States. While there are many different treatment options available, one evidence-based approach that has shown promise in recent years is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT.
At Valor Behavioral Health, we are committed to providing effective and compassionate substance abuse treatment to those who need it. That’s why we offer a range of evidence-based therapies, including ACT, to help our clients achieve lasting recovery.
What is ACT, and how does it work in Substance Abuse Treatment?
Put simply, ACT is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes acceptance of difficult thoughts and feelings, mindfulness, and commitment to values-based action. Rather than trying to eliminate or suppress negative thoughts and emotions, ACT encourages clients to develop greater psychological flexibility and learn how to live more fully in the present moment.
In substance abuse treatment, ACT can be especially effective because it helps clients address the underlying psychological issues that often contribute to addictive behavior. By developing greater acceptance and awareness of their thoughts and emotions, clients can learn to respond to stress and triggers in a healthier way, reducing the risk of relapse.
How does Valor Behavioral Health Utilize ACT?
At Valor Behavioral Health, our team of experienced therapists and counselors are trained in ACT and other evidence-based therapies to provide comprehensive substance abuse treatment. We work closely with each client to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and goals, and we use a variety of techniques to help them develop greater psychological flexibility and resilience.
For example, we may use mindfulness meditation to help clients develop greater awareness of their thoughts and emotions, or we may use values clarification exercises to help them identify their core values and goals. Through a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, and other supportive services, we help clients develop the skills and tools they need to achieve lasting recovery.
If you or someone you love is struggling with substance abuse, we encourage you to reach out to Valor Behavioral Health to learn more about our evidence-based treatment options, including ACT. Our team is committed to helping each client achieve their full potential and live a life free from addiction.
In addition to ACT, we offer a range of other evidence-based therapies that have been shown to be effective in substance abuse treatment, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). We also offer supportive services such as family therapy, psychiatric care, and holistic treatments like yoga and meditation.
At Valor Behavioral Health, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality mental health care, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we accept most major insurance plans and offer affordable self-pay options. We also offer teletherapy services for clients who are unable to attend in-person appointments.
