Recovery | Clearbrook Treatment Centers

Addiction and recovery journeys are never the same for patients. Though people may share the same addiction, the reasons why they are at this point and how they want to overcome their addictions are different. This is why at Clearbrook Massachusetts, we offer unique addiction therapy services to help with each individual’s recovery needs. Regardless of the type of substance use disorder that is being faced, our substance abuse therapy programs are designed to help make the entire process a smooth and healing one. 

Addiction Therapy Programs at Clearbrook Massachusetts 

Addiction can take many forms and behaviors. Typically, addiction involves a repeated activity despite the problems or negative consequences it might cause or already be causing. Addiction can change the brain’s wiring, making it difficult to quit drug or alcohol abuse. The good news is that there are many addiction therapy services available at our Massachusetts inpatient drug rehab that can address these issues and help clients adjust to sobriety.  

Below are the different types of drug and alcohol addiction therapy models we utilize at Clearbrook.  

12-Step Program 

The 12-Step Program was originally founded by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) to assist patients who were receiving alcohol treatment. Today, the 12-Step Program is used to treat various substance abuse disorders. As a form of drug therapy, the 12-step method not only promotes recovery from addiction but also has a spiritual undertone that assists patients in their spiritual and psychological healing, as well. 

Art Therapy 

Another form of drug therapy offered at Clearbrook is art therapy. This is an effective program in which patients use art to communicate their thoughts and feelings while self-evaluating to better understand their condition. During substance abuse therapy, it can be hard to fully communicate and put thoughts and feelings into words. For this reason, our art therapy program gives patients in recovery another way to express themselves better. 

Addiction Counseling 

When it comes to drug addiction therapy, there is more to it than just physically overcoming a dependence on drugs or alcohol. Addiction recovery is a mental process, as well. That’s why we also offer individual addiction counseling where patients can have one-on-one discussions with their counselors to gain self-awareness and develop relapse prevention skills they’ll need to sustain their sobriety after rehab. We also offer addiction group therapy where clients can meet others in recovery and receive and give peer support. 

Family Therapy for Addiction 

In addition to individual addiction therapy services, our facility also offers counseling for the loved ones of our patients. Not only can substance abuse impact the parents, siblings, and spouses of our clients, but it’s also important for clients to have a strong support system when they go back home after rehab. Therapists in our family therapy program will work with the spouses, siblings, and parents of clients individually and together with the patients to address boundaries, enabling behavior, codependence, and more. 


Biofeedback is one of the more unique therapy programs we offer. This therapeutic technique is used to treat many different types of ailments, including anxiety, ADHD, chronic pain, and more. In this program, patients learn how to identify and manage physiological functions associated with their addiction. During this program, patients will use a machine called a serenity bed, which uses auditory and visual cues to help them relax. Biofeedback is one of the most effective methods of drug therapy to help relax a patient during the recovery process. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

Among our special programs and therapies is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a form of psychotherapy that’s used to address the underlying emotional and mental causes of addiction. The focus of CBT is to teach patients how to become their own therapists. This means they’ll develop self-awareness, learn about the contributing factors of their conditions, and develop coping skills that can help them change their own thinking, negative emotions, and self-destructive behavior. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is another form of psychotherapy that was developed from CBT. DBT treatment focuses on helping the individual identify the emotions linked to their addiction and learn how to work through them. Substance abuse disorders are as emotional as they are physical, which is why it’s important to work through each aspect of their disorder. Our licensed therapists are here to guide and help patients through the emotional ties of addiction and learn how to cut them. 

Corporate Recovery Program 

The Corporate Recovery Program is another successful special program and therapy option that Clearbrook Massachusetts offers. This program allows employers to get their employees the help they need to recover from their drug or alcohol addictions. As an employer, it can be tough to decide how best to help your employee work through their drug or drinking problems. While you don’t want your other employees to be affected, you also want to help your team member recover so they can regain their health and rejoin your company. The goal of our rehab for employees is to help patients recover from addiction and rejoin the workforce as productive employees. 

LGBTQ+ Addiction Treatment 

Here at our drug rehab in Massachusetts, we know that members of the LGBTQ+ community face additional obstacles compared to others outside of the community. Individuals in this community struggle with addiction at higher rates than those outside the community due to the stressors they often face in their day-to-day lives. Our LGBTQ+ addiction treatment program is centered on helping these individuals overcome the societal and physical obstacles that can add more stress and exacerbate their substance use disorders. 

Alumni Program 

Once you have completed a program with us, it doesn’t mean that the recovery process is over. Our alumni program is here for additional support as you continue your journey. Keeping up with your sobriety outside of rehab can be intimidating and often scary, and that is why we are here to help. Not only do alumni in this program enjoy the benefits of individual therapy sessions, but they also have the opportunity to connect with others in the recovery community through our addiction group therapy. 

Our addiction therapy models are designed with our patient’s needs in mind. For more information about our special programs and therapies or our Massachusetts substance abuse treatment, contact Clearbrook Treatment Centers today.
