As pioneers in addiction recovery, The Sanctuary at Sedona is proud to use a revolutionary holistic, integrative approach to heal the body, repair the brain and recover the soul. During your 30-day-minimum treatment, you’ll experience a transformational therapeutic process to help you overcome addiction and find healing from PTSD, anxiety, depression and other emotional and mental health issues. To do this, we blend the wisdom gleaned from ancient healing traditions with cutting-edge Western medicine — including the latest psychotherapies. 

What Is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy uses psychological treatment to help clients overcome the challenges and symptoms of emotional and mental health issues. Also known as talk therapy, psychotherapy is designed to take you on a journey of understanding. Whether you struggle with addiction or your life is marred by past trauma, this evidence-based yet compassionate form of treatment helps you gain insight into your thoughts and feelings. Psychotherapy also equips you to face present and future challenges in healthy, productive ways. 

Many people confuse psychotherapy with counseling. While there is some overlap, psychotherapy goes deeper into addressing the underlying factors that may have fueled your addiction or mental health issues. Sessions also seek solutions, offering a sense of hope and purpose.

Empowerment Through Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy has the potential to be as empowering as medication for treating addiction and emotional or mental health problems. For those who require medication, talk therapy can be a powerful adjunct treatment and add to the effectiveness of the overall treatment plan. 

Whether you struggle with a diagnosed mental health condition or you’ve used drugs or alcohol to ease life’s stress, therapy can help you find a better way to:

  • Relieve anxiety
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Cope with the ups and downs of life, including the loss of a loved one or divorce
  • Learn to manage unhealthy reactions, such as rage or passive-aggressive behaviors
  • Accept chronic health issues or physical limitations
  • Manage sexual problems
  • Recover from past trauma or abuse
  • Sleep better

Psychotherapy Treatment for Trauma

People experience and process traumatic events differently, and it can be challenging finding ways to cope. Individual psychotherapies are considered some of the most effective treatments for past trauma and PTSD. Working with trauma survivors is a highly specialized form of psychotherapy and should only be handled by a trauma specialist. At The Sanctuary, we are proud to offer several different types of trauma therapy, including cognitive therapies and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) treatment. 

Psychotherapy Treatment for Addiction

Also called drug or alcohol rehabilitation therapy, psychotherapy for addiction focuses on helping you break your dependency on addictive substances. The goal is to teach you to find connections between your thoughts or feelings and addictive behaviors. Increased awareness coupled with healthy coping techniques can empower your recovery process.

Psychotherapy Treatments at The Sanctuary

At The Sanctuary at Sedona, we incorporate psychotherapy into our holistic addiction and trauma treatment programs. Psychotherapy adds a scientific dimension to our therapeutic approach, ensuring our comprehensive offerings help you find healing in every area of your life — mind, emotions, body and spirit. Although treatment options vary based on your unique needs, here are some of the psychotherapy treatments offered at The Sanctuary.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of therapy that helps our clients find new ways to behave by changing their thought patterns. The more you understand the emotions, thoughts and feelings that fuel your behaviors, the better you can realize how they impact how you act. CBT is highly effective at treating addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety and more.

Cognitive Processing Therapy

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a type of CBT that’s been found to be useful for people with PTSD. CPT helps challenge and reframe negative thoughts so you can gain control over the impact trauma has had on your life. 

EMDR Therapy

EMDR guides clients as they recall past trauma while also doing bilateral stimulation. Whether it involves tracking their therapist’s hand or tapping their fingers, this technique can help individuals correctly process past trauma and reduce its negative impact. 

Holistic Therapy

At The Sanctuary, we place a huge emphasis on using complementary, holistic therapies. Yoga, massage therapy, Reiki, energy medicine and other techniques help clients connect their minds and bodies to their intellect, emotions and spirit. These wellness practices are considered alternative treatments by Western standards, but many holistic therapies have been practiced with great effect for thousands of years in India and other parts of the world.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, also known as emotional reboot treatment, combines ketamine and talk therapy to guide you through a journey of profound self-reflection where old beliefs and attitudes are challenged. This empowers new insight and promotes lasting change in how you relate to yourself, your obstacles and the world around you. 

Group Therapy

While our clients undoubtedly benefit from partnering with our compassionate therapists during individual sessions, something powerful occurs during group therapy. By interacting with others who have similar stories and challenges, you realize you’re not alone. You also gain encouragement to keep working toward total healing.

What to Expect When Receiving Psychotherapy?

You may be nervous about receiving therapy. However, this form of treatment can help you gain incredible insight into your behaviors and the thoughts that plague you. While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, at The Sanctuary, we believe these sessions should be a safe space where you feel free to reveal your rawest, most vulnerable self. That’s why our highly trained therapists work to create an atmosphere of trust and comfort. 

Whether you stay with us for 30 days or longer, you will be encouraged to attend individual therapy sessions. The type of psychotherapy utilized will depend on your unique needs. Most sessions last for about an hour and follow a structured process to provide you with a sense of stability and comfort. You can expect lots of questions, talking and possibly other forms of communication, such as music. 

Psychotherapy is only as beneficial as your participation. Those who dive in and fully commit to the process usually see positive results and incredible benefits to help them break free from addiction and past trauma.
