Psycho-dynamic focused group therapy is extremely effective in the treatment of mental health and addictive disorders. Led by highly experienced dual diagnosis clinicians, our clients spend between 4-6 hours in group therapy each day. Ascend therapists utilize many approaches to assist clients in developing the skills necessary to live a healthier, more satisfying life in recovery.
Ascend Recovery is built on a relational therapy model, with the goal of developing a strong therapeutic alliance between therapist and client. Our clients meet one-on-one with their primary therapist a minimum of twice weekly. Our therapists are highly trained in many treatment modalities and work with our clients to increase awareness and skills for coping.
Drug and alcohol use prevents the normal conversion of amino acids to neurotransmitters and thus affects brain chemistry which can cause anxiety, depression, short attention span, hostile and aggressive behavior, poor memory, and drug and alcohol cravings. Amino acid supplementation helps to heal and repair and can help stabilize mood and curb cravings.
