Specializing in treatment for behavioral addictions, substance addictions, and multiple addictions
Spectrum therapists are highly trained
in diagnosing and treating people with behavioral addictions, substance use disorders, and dual-diagnoses, from
an attachment and trauma-informed perspective. We offer evidence-based therapy for individuals and their families, drawing from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the Task Model, and Interpersonal Neurobiology.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is the basis for our treatment model and informs and guides the therapy we provide. DBT is
based on the principle that problematic,
or ineffective, behavior has its roots in extremes. DBT promotes four primary skills to seek effective solutions. These include: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Trauma-informed, attachment oriented therapy
Our therapists are trained in trauma resolution using research-supported therapy models. We understand that early life experiences set the stage for well-functioning adults, and that disruptions in the developmental process can result in ineffective coping that creates challenges to our self-regulation and relationships. We help identify and resolve these challenges.
Learn More About Our Approach to Therapy
At Spectrum Recovery Solutions, we believe that everyone deserves a life worth living. We operate from a focus on attachment bonding as a primary human need. Attachment refers to the deep connection that develops between child and parent(s) during the developmental years. Secure Attachment results in mature individual who:
- Feel safe in the world
- Feel comfortable in their own skin
- Have positive regard for self and others
- Know how to trust and depend on others
- Are trustworthy and dependable
- Recognize and distinguish healthy and unhealthy behaviors
- Manage their own emotions effectively
- Have the ability to stay present in the moment
- Have the ability to delay gratification
We specialize in helping people identify and correct the patterns of belief, thinking, feeling, and behavior that get in the way of important life goals, satisfying relationships, and feeling good. We identify, address, and help heal attachment wounds, and foster new, effective patterns of thinking and acting that support a life worth living.
