The disease of addiction affects the physical, emotional, spiritual and behavioral aspects of a person’s life. Our staff use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help clients address these issues.
Group therapy sessions focus on identifying the symptoms and patterns of addiction. The group process also helps clients understand the impact their addiction has had on family members and others. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is taught to help clients identify, challenge and change faulty thinking patterns. Gender specific groups are conducted to help clients address gender related issues. Relapse Prevention, Life Skills and 12-step are other groups conducted.
Each client is assigned a therapist upon admission to Koinonia. The therapist works with the client as a team to develop treatment goals. The individual therapist will also work with the client’s family and support system throughout treatment to provide education and support.
Family therapy is a vital component to our programming. Please see our link to find out more information about our family programming.
Our philosophy is to respect the individual spiritual choices of the clients we serve. Koinonia does offer spiritual care to help clients who may be struggling in this area.
Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous support groups are offered on site for clients’ convenience. Clients may attend off site support groups upon approval from the treatment team.
Recovery means learning how to take good care of yourself physically. Nutrition education, yoga and visits to the YMCA are offered to clients while in treatment.
