At Passages, we focus on healing the various underlying conditions causing a person to abuse drugs and alcohol. To uncover those driving forces, we utilize psychotherapy to successfully discover the root causes of your substance use and heal you from the inside out. During your time with us at Passages, you will have private, one-on-one sessions with a licensed, doctoral-level psychologist who is professionally trained and skillfully experienced in the field of substance abuse.
In your one-on-one sessions with our psychologists, you will finally be able to discover the underlying reasons that are causing you to abuse substances. Being unable to cope with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, marriage, work, relationships, the death of a loved one, financial burdens, illness, insecurity, or physical impairment are the most common reasons for substance abuse. We utilize psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and family systems techniques to tailor our sessions to the needs of the client and the modality that best suits each person. While most treatment centers have one individual counseling session per week with a bachelors or masters level clinician, at Passages you will receive multiple individual sessions with our doctoral-level psychologists per week. This will allow for more in-depth processing of your unique issues, which allows for months or even years worth of therapy to occur over the course of your stay.
