Acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT) is a long-established and effective treatment that offers a number of benefits when you’re recovering from addiction. Based on six core principles, ACT shows you how to create a life that is full of meaning, based on your values.
ACT teaches you how to remain psychologically flexible by:
- A: Accepting your reactions
- C: Choosing a valued direction
- T: Taking action
ACT places a large emphasis on identifying your personal values and using those as guiding principles in recovery. By doing so, you can create a life based on what you value most — helping you deal with difficult moments that are inevitable in life. The underlying belief is that if you can stay focused on your values, you can embrace meaningful behavior changes and more effectively face life’s many challenges.
Our highly trained staff members apply trauma-informed ACT therapy within our drug and alcohol treatment program where we have helped hundreds of individuals cope with their most difficult experiences and stay sober.
