Discovery Behavioral Health - Substance Abuse

Substance Use

Evidentiary Holistic Healing

Research about substance abuse has shown that real solutions lie in the application of solid, evidence-based treatment. Our comprehensive approach utilizes one-on-one psychotherapy, group therapy, family support and evidence-based holistic treatments to create positive changes in the patient’s brain.

Addiction Triggers

It is important to recognize that addiction ultimately stems from some form of pain or trauma – difficult situations that proved at the time to be too severe to overcome. Recognizing these triggers, we work to help patients develop new coping skills so they can effectively process these troubling underlying circumstances to once again connect with their authentic selves. At the same time, we help lay the foundation for the individual who is struggling with an addiction to begin repairing broken relationships compromised by their substance use disorder.


Positive Psychology

Our clinical professionals introduce a variety of treatments to assist in the healing process, such as:

  • Motivational interviewing
  • Stages of Change
  • 12-step programs
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Somatic experience
  • Neurofeedback
  • Biofeedback
  • Certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) support
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT; when needed)
  • Psychodrama

In meeting patients where they are, DBH also believes in removing shame surrounding substance use disorders support by emphasizing positive psychology.


Full-time DBH addiction researchers constantly evaluate new treatment applications.

This allows DBH to make available the best and most innovative techniques that science has to offer. By utilizing the most successful therapies and supporting them with a holistic approach to healing, we create a strong foundation for lasting recovery from substance abuse.
