We offer a balanced, consistent approach that treats behavioral and mental health issues together to increase the chance of long-term recovery and success.
CHANGING UNHEALTHY PATTERNS
We provide success in recovery for any problem behavior or underlying issue.
Many people with a history of substance abuse struggle with unresolved issues that should be addressed. Increasing evidence shows that recovery is most successful when both the addictive behaviors and emotional problems are treated at the same time, or “concurrently”. Even if you or a loved one is dealing with just one or the other affliction, the concurrent therapeutic approach is a powerful, effective way to treat those in need.
What is Concurrent Treatment?
Concurrent treatment is the simultaneous use of different therapies to treat a range of issues. We implement a concurrent treatment model to treat clients with a history of mental, emotional, and substance abuse issues. Treating the entire body at once makes sense in terms of time spent, costs and total wellness. The first step in treatment is a comprehensive assessment to analyze the problems each client may be facing so that we can tailor a personalized treatment plan. At our Boca Raton Facility, we provide various types of therapy to implement a unique treatment plan for each client. We are dedicated to finding the right formula for each teen, adult and family that comes to us for help.
Consistency in actions over time = recovery.
We provide four core ingredients:
- Individual Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Wellness Program
With this method, we provide each client with emotional, psychological, and nutritional therapy to create the balanced care that they require and deserve.
Consistency over time.
Change is hard. Change takes time. We require a balanced, consistent approach that treats the body as a whole and increases the likelihood of long-term recovery and success. Our program includes cognitive and psychological support, group therapy, family therapy, individual one-on-one care, and physical and nutritional help. Through using this combination of ingredients, our concurrent treatment model provides comprehensive care that builds self-esteem in a supportive environment.
Every client at The Fourmula will participate in individual therapy sessions. Here, the client and the therapist identify problems to be worked on together. A in-depth assessment is done and a personalized treatment plan is developed. The treatment plan for each client will include both long and short-term goals. Objectives will be “measurable” to be completed by set times.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Here we focus on current problems and coping skills that help you or your loved one think more positively and build confidence and self-esteem.
- Psychotherapy/Psychodynamic Therapy
Psychotherapy aims at targeting unresolved issues from the past that may be influencing current behavior. By gaining insight into their past, therapists work with each client on changing the beliefs that motivate problem behaviors.
In addition to immediate family, our treatment professionals may choose to include extended family members, or friends who play a significant role in the client’s life. Weekly interaction by phone, or in person with the client’s therapists (and other staff if needed) is part of the program. We use three approaches in family sessions:
- Mindfulness Therapy
The family examines painful or troubling events, thoughts or feelings safely and at their own pace. Mindfulness therapy can reduce negative reactions to events based on painful experiences from the past.
- Problem Solving/Solution Focused Therapy
A form of treatment implemented to to identify and resolve problems affecting each client’s life. Multiple solutions are developed for each problem, which are then tested to find the best course of action for the future.
- Social Skills Training
Family members learn how to act toward each other with respect, patience and honesty. Open communication and respect help make healthy relationships possible.
Group therapy is a powerful tool used to promote growth and healing. The power of group therapy comes from how all members of the group receive support by building on shared experience, reducing the feeling of “aloneness” and creating solidarity between and among group members . At The Fourmula, there are different types of groups to fit the needs of each client. Here are some examples: Psychoeducational Groups Topics relating to specific issues are presented by the staff. Group members then discuss and relate the information to themselves and their own situation. Process or Psychotherapy Groups As a way of developing insight into underlying problems, participants in the group share feelings, thoughts and experiences in an atmosphere of mutual support and safety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Groups Group members learn new healthy ways of behaving by changing thoughts, outlooks and understanding of events and attitudes. Long-term change is achieved by replacing negative thinking with positive beliefs.
We believe that the body and the mind are one. Long-term healing succeeds when mental and physical health are each addressed. Each client meets with the Wellness Director and, if needed, our dietitian to create a plan for personal fitness and nutrition. The body and mind heal together. Clients learn the connections between food, fitness, moods and feelings.
