  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Clients meet with a medical team, as well as admissions specialists to determine if they are a good fit for the program. Once approved, clients can be enrolled in a detox program or a sober living facility for treatment.

Treatment consists of individual and group therapy, as well as step work from 12-step programs like AA and NA. To address withdrawal symptoms, treatment includes medication management using Suboxone, a medication utilized by 29.3 percent of rehabs in Florida, or Subutex. Stepping Sober also uses eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which is used primarily to treat trauma-related problems, including PTSD, anxiety disorders, phobias and panic attacks, sexual addictions, eating disorders, and more.

The program has two phases: in phase one, clients receive intensive training about the disease of addiction and receive five days of group therapy and two sessions of partner counseling per week. In phase two, partners together develop a treatment plan, attend individual and group therapy sessions.
