Hemi-Sync is a therapeutic treatment that generates complex, multi-layered sound signals that create intensely enhanced mental, emotional and physical enhanced states. Clients report increased clarity of thought and dramatically reduced post-acute withdrawal symptoms, weeks and months following their last drugging/drinking experience.
Peripheral biofeedback is a noninvasive treatment modality aimed at enhancing psychophysiological self-regulation. Such self-regulation can be helpful in alleviating a number of symptoms, particularly those that are anxiety related including: insomnia, emotional eating, generalized anxiety, panic attacks and substance abuse.
Family therapy, also sometimes referred to as couples or marriage and family therapy, or family systems therapy, is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families in intimate relationships to nurture change and development. It tends to view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members. It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.
The conceptual frameworks developed by family therapists, especially those of family systems theorists, have been applied to a wide range of human behavior, including organizational dynamics and the study of greatness. Honesty, self-care and the personal accountability of each family member is emphasized in family therapy at Awakenings. While seemingly simple tasks, clients and their family members find that these may be simple but not always easy activities with which to remain consistent!
Experiential Trauma Resolution – Experiential Process Groups: Psychodrama, Trauma Resolution & Sculpting – These group modalities integrate the effective treatment process in a way that is not information based. Information alone does not create change, but having a new experience can and does.
DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotion regulation and reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful awareness largely derived from Buddhist meditative practice. DBT may be the first therapy that has been experimentally demonstrated to be generally effective in treating BPD. The first randomized clinical trial of DBT showed reduced rates of suicidal gestures, psychiatric hospitalizations and treatment drop-out when compared to treatment as usual.
