Individual therapy is a key component of many treatment plans, individual therapy allows us the chance to get to know you and give you professional counseling time, one on one. Our staff of licensed, experienced professionals are here to listen and offer support through your treatment. Each client will receive at least two individual sessions with their primary clinician each week. Our clinicians are all licensed and trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is an evidence-based, highly effective way to address underlying issues that may have led to your addiction. Trauma, anxiety, and other negative emotions and memories are often repressed. EMDR is used in conjunction with other therapies to resurface those repressed emotions and memories and work through them with a professional. Learn more about our individual therapy
Research has shown that group therapy is the most effective therapeutic intervention, followed by family therapy and then individual therapy. Group therapy allows for the creation of a natural support system within the clients that is crucial for an individuals successful recovery. Group therapy provides a community of people who understand what you’re going through and reminds you that you are not alone in your recovery journey. Pinnacle Recovery’s groups are all clinician run and offer a wide variety of treatment approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), internal family systems, life skills, healthy relationships, mindfulness, recreational and experiential groups. Read more about Pinnacle Recovery’s approach to group therapy.
Family Therapy sessions occur once a week, and also on family weekends which occur once a month. These sessions and calls are based solely on the individuals treatment plans and goals and the client will have signed a release of information for them to occur. Family sessions and family weekends are designed to facilitate resolution of past problems, identify both the healthy and unhealthy family dynamics and establish healthy boundaries and patterns in order to support the client in recovery and relapse prevention.

Addiction is a chronic, complex brain disease that's defined by a psychological and physical dependence on drugs, alcohol, or a specific behavior (i.e. gambling or shopping). Although there are many potential causes and contributing factors, mental health conditions often play an underlying role. Unfortunately, the symptoms of one disorder will often trigger the other, creating a vicious cycle of self-destruction. This is known as comorbidity, often resulting in a dual-diagnosis. For example, individuals living with PTSD also often suffer from alcoholism and depression. Learn more about our approach to treating dual-diagnosis.
