Acceptance & commitment therapy, commonly abbreviated ACT, offers a proven psychiatric treatment model born of cognitive and behavioral therapy roots. The evidence-based therapy method teaches situational awareness without ownership: how to effectively notice and process our thoughts without letting them own us. Through PHP and IOP programming at Real Recovery, adult male clients (18+) are encouraged to identify self-destructive thoughts and emotions which may be inhibiting recovery and are taught coping strategies in their pursuit of freedom from substance use habits.
Mindfulness – a key component to successful acceptance & commitment therapy – offers clients an opportunity to distance themselves from mental suffering and pursue active, wholesome recovery. Thoroughly integrated into our clinical programming, mindfulness complements ACT in pairing awareness with a deep realization of the current moment, without allowing past events or future possibilities to influence the present.
Effective in treating a variety of mental health issues, acceptance & commitment therapy helps our clients foster long-term mental health recovery and substance use relapse prevention.
