National Recovery Month is an annual observance where we celebrate the progress in addiction treatment and recovery. It is a time for all of us to come together and raise awareness about the importance of addiction treatment and recovery services, and to celebrate those who have made amazing strides in their journey to sobriety.
Our key message: Recovery is possible. You can overcome addiction to alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs. And we can do it together.
At Horizon Family Medical Group, our healthcare providers work with you, using evidence-based techniques to help break addictions once and for all. And because everyone is different, we strive to create individualized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each person. Our goal is to provide our patients with the tools and resources they need to build a foundation for long-term recovery.
What are evidence-based techniques?
Evidence-based techniques are proven to be effective in treating addiction. We use these techniques to create individualized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each person. Our goal is to provide our patients with the tools and resources they need to build a foundation for long-term recovery.
Some of the evidence-based techniques we use include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): This type of therapy helps patients identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to addiction.
- Motivational interviewing: This technique is used to help patients explore their thoughts and feelings about recovery, and to motivate them to make changes in their lives.
- Contingency management: This approach uses positive reinforcement, such as vouchers or prizes, to encourage patients to stick with treatment and abstain from substance use.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, we encourage you to reach out for help. Treatment works, and recovery is possible. During National Recovery Month, let’s come together to support those on the journey to sobriety!
