Addiction Treatment Therapies in New Jersey

Psychotherapy is a general term for treating mental health problems by talking with a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health providers.
During psychotherapy, you learn about your condition and your moods, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

You will learn about the root causes of long-standing behavioral patterns and self-defeating tendencies.  Psychotherapy will help you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.

At the Wellness Center in New Jersey, along with psychotherapy, we also use different solutions based therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, and Self Determination Theory.

Psychotherapy can help treat the vast majority of mental health problems, including:

  • Anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, panic disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder
  • Addictions, such as alcoholism, drug dependence, or compulsive gambling
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
  • Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder or dependent personality disorder
  • Schizophrenia or other disorders that cause detachment from reality (psychotic disorders)

Not everyone who benefits from psychotherapy is diagnosed with a mental illness. Psychotherapy can help with many life’s stresses and conflicts that can affect anyone. For example, it may help you:

  • Resolve conflicts with your partner or someone else in your life
  • Relieve anxiety or stress due to work or other situations
  • Cope with significant life changes, such as divorce, the death of a loved one, or the loss of a job
  • Learn to manage unhealthy reactions, such as road rage or passive-aggressive behavior
  • Come to terms with an ongoing or serious physical health problem, such as diabetes, cancer, or persistent (chronic) pain.
  • Recover from physical or sexual abuse or witnessing violence
  • Cope with sexual problems, whether they’re due to a physical or psychological cause
  • Sleep better, if you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep (insomnia)

Besides heredity, there are many social factors and behavioral factors that can have a strong influence on the development and the outcome of any mental illness or substance abuse issues.

Our board certified psychiatrists are trained and experienced in Motivational Interviewing, Integrated Dual Diagnosis and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies which are our primary treatment techniques. Different therapies used are: Insight Therapy, Psychodynamic, Person-centered and CBT therapy. Particularly, CBT is very effective in most situations, because it is based on natural processes of conditioning and learning. In addition to the therapy approaches mentioned, we incorporate:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a common type of mental health counseling (psychotherapy). With cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a mental health counselor (psychotherapist or therapist) in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be a very helpful tool in treating mental disorders or illnesses, such as anxiety or depression. But not everyone who benefits from cognitive behavioral therapy has a mental health condition. It can be an effective tool to help anyone learn how to better manage stressful life situations.

Contingency Management Program

Contingency management (CM) treatments are based upon a simple behavioral principle — if a behavior is reinforced or rewarded, it is more likely to occur in the future. These behavioral principles are used in everyday life.

In some cases, psychotherapy can be as effective as medications, such as antidepressants. However, depending on your specific situation, psychotherapy alone may not be enough to ease the symptoms of a mental health condition. You may also need medications or other treatments.
