Aftercare

Aftercare programs help people stay on track after they finish addiction treatment. Think of going to treatment as the first big step towards getting better. Usually, this treatment lasts for a short time, from 30 to 180 days. But recovery takes much longer.

Therapies, Programs & Treatment Approaches at Better Way Counseling Services

Anger Management

When you let anger go unchecked, it can affect every part of your life. You might find yourself having sudden outbursts, acting in ways that don't make sense, or even feeling violent or very sad. Some people even think about hurting themselves. But there’s good news: there are ways to get help with managing anger. You can talk to mental health experts who know a lot about this, and they can work with you either while you stay at a place for treatment or while you live at home and just go for visits. If anger is a big problem for you, finding the right kind of help and learning how to handle it better can really turn things around.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT for short, is a kind of therapy that shows people the link between what they think and what they do. When someone goes through CBT, they get better at spotting thoughts that aren't helpful and learning to change them. By changing the way they think, they can make their relationships with others better and are less likely to turn to unhealthy habits.

Family Counseling

Family counseling is an important part of treating addiction, both when a patient stays at a treatment center and when they visit for sessions. This type of counseling is included at Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland because addiction doesn't just affect the person using substances; it also impacts their family. At Better Way Counseling Services, they understand that families need help too. With family counseling in Ellicott City, Maryland, everyone, including the person with addiction and their relatives, can work together to solve problems. They also learn the best ways to support their family member as they recover from addiction.

Group Counseling

At Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland, group therapy is a way for people to get help from a therapist while sharing the experience with others. In these groups, which usually have 5 to 20 people, members often have similar issues they are working through. This could be a certain problem they all face or a tough event they have all gone through. Group therapy happens both where people stay for treatment and where they visit just for the therapy session.

In group therapy here in Ellicott City, Maryland, everyone talks together about a topic or a challenge they're dealing with. A trained therapist leads these talks. Sometimes the therapist will guide the conversation in a certain direction, and they might have a plan or topic ready for each time the group meets. This helps everyone in the group learn from each other and get better together.

Individual Counseling

Individual therapy is a kind of counseling where one person talks with a therapist by themselves. At Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland, this kind of therapy uses different ways to help people who are trying to get better from addiction.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a helpful way to encourage people to stop harmful habits. At Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland, we use motivational interviewing along with another method called motivational enhancement therapy. This combination helps those dealing with drug or alcohol problems to feel more sure of themselves as they work to get better.

Relapse Prevention

Going back to using drugs or alcohol after you've finished treatment for addiction is called a relapse. Many people who are working to overcome addictions might relapse at some time. If this happens, it doesn't mean you've failed. It just means you might need more help to stay on the path to staying clean for your whole life. Here at Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland, we have relapse prevention therapy. This will teach you about why relapse happens, what makes you want to use again, and how to keep it from happening.

Substance Use Disorder Education

Learning about substance use disorder is really helpful for people dealing with addiction and their families too. At Better Way Counseling Services in Ellicott City, Maryland, this kind of learning helps everyone understand more about the problems with using drugs and alcohol.

In Ellicott City, Maryland, when we talk about learning regarding substance use, it includes lessons for people who are using drugs or alcohol. It also helps their family and friends know how to support them. This education might even include how to talk and listen in ways that can help the person with their addiction.
