Treatment Modalities

Outpatient Treatment Modalities

Treatment at New Perspectives of White Deer Run in Lebanon is based on a number of different rehab methods that have proven effectiveness in helping individuals who are working to recover from chemical dependency. These methods may include the following:

  • Reality Therapy
  • Client-Centered Supportive Therapy
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Family Interaction Model
  • Ego-Psychology Model
  • Disease Concept Model
  • 12-Step Recovery Model
  • Motivational Interviewing

At New Perspectives of White Deer Run in Lebanon, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive treatment that includes a number of different empirically-supported activities. These interventions are tailored to each individual participant and may include the following:

Individual therapy: During individual therapy sessions, participants meet in a one-to-one setting with their primary therapists or counselors. This is meant to be a time for participants to receive support and discuss issues that have come up during group sessions or other parts of rehab. Individual therapy sessions are provided on an as-needed basis.

Group therapy: Group therapy is a foundational component of rehab at our rehab center. Group therapy sessions allow participants to come together in an environment where they can support each other and learn from each other’s experiences. In addition, groups allow participants to practice new skills and receive feedback in a safe environment under the guidance of a trained counselor or therapist. Participants in IOP attend 9 hours of groups per week, while participants in the OP attend two to four hours of groups every week. Many different topics can be covered in these group therapy sessions, some of which may include:

  • Disease concept of addiction
  • Life stressors
  • Relapse prevention
  • Relationships and boundaries
  • Coping strategies
  • 12-Step recovery process
  • Anxiety symptoms and strategies to cope
  • Depression symptoms and strategies to cope

Family therapy: At New Perspectives of White Deer Run in Lebanon, we believe that families can be one of the strongest sources of support for individuals, but we also recognize that substance abuse can have painful effects on each family member. In an effort to assist families as they navigate the treatment process, we are happy to schedule family therapy sessions at our rehab center as needed.

IOP curriculum: Each participant in our intensive outpatient program can benefit from our center’s comprehensive psychoeducational curriculum. The topics that are covered as part of this curriculum may include:

  • Education About the Disease – Participants learn about the physical, psychological, spiritual, and social effects of substances and how substance abuse can affect nearly all facets of a person’s life.
  • Recovery Support – This topic teaches participants how to develop and use a strong support network.
  • High Risk Situations – In this portion of the curriculum, participants learn about situations that may present a greater danger of relapse and learn how to manage these situations.
  • Physical Recovery – This topic helps participants learn about the physical effects that substances can have on their bodies. In addition, participants can engage in activities to improve their overall wellbeing.
  • Recovery and Mental Health – Participants learn about the psychological effects that substances can produce.
  • Relationships and Recovery – In this section, participants learn about what healthy relationships look like and how to set healthy boundaries within relationships.
  • Recovery and the Family – This portion of the curriculum uses the family model to discuss how substance abuse affects families and how families can play a role in the recovery process. Codependency issues may also be discussed.
  • Humor and Recovery – Humor can play a powerful role in the recovery process, and this topic helps participants develop a sense of fun and enjoyment without the need for mind-altering substances.
  • Character Defects / Value Systems and Recovery – During this portion of the IOP curriculum, therapists work with participants to examine personal barriers that may be hindering their recovery progress. In addition, therapists help participants understand their personal value systems so that they can progress towards living more value-driven lives.
  • Recovery and Stress Management – Substance use often seems to provide a tempting short-term escape from stress, but by escaping from stress instead of working through it, those who use substances are often not able to successfully manage stress. In this component of the curriculum, participants will identify and prioritize stressors in their lives and develop skills for managing those stressors so that they will feel less of a need to return to using substances.
  • Criminal Thinking and Recovery – Participants learn about criminal thinking and how it may prevent them from being successful in recovery.
  • Holidays and Recovery and Legal System and Recovery are supplemental topics that may also be discussed.
