Loss may be unavoidable in life which may lead to substance use and addictive behaviors. When grief becomes debilitating, and it feels as if it is impossible to adjust back to everyday living, a complicated grief disorder may benefit from therapies that provide the skills to allow one to work through their feelings with acceptance rather than denial.
At UR, we treat grief and loss through individual counseling, process therapy in a group modality, experiential therapy as called for and skills-training through mindfulness and ACT. There is a way through loss that does not require self-medication and emotional numbing. We are here to help you find your path back to balance, wellness and life.
The Process at Urban Recovery
When you come to Urban Recovery, you will undergo a 10-day assessment to understand the root cause of your addictive behaviors. With our team, you will discuss the impacts this behavior has had on yourself and your family and how it can impact your future if the behavior persists. We are going to help move from understanding the gravity of the behavior to a recovery path that may include residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment and therapy. Our team will also conduct deep immersion therapy where we visit your home, work, place of leisure and more to work on the trigger points. We develop a post discharge plan, or aftercare plan, to ensure you are well equipped with behavioral exercises to implement once you go back home.
During your time at Urban Recovery, we work on acceptance of self, acceptance of the past and identification of what matters most. You will get to work with our consultants, therapists, psychiatrists, dieticians, physical trainers and more to assist you in getting back to your healthy state.
We also encourage your family to work with you on your path to recovery. Family will often talk with our psychiatrists to better understand the behavioral disorder and mental health issues their loved one may be facing.
Every person and every family is unique. We understand the story of the family and the story of the individual to try and re-envision the family story together.
