Therapy is a vital part of addiction treatment. Both individual and group therapy sessions support those in recovery as they build healthy habits and develop the skills and knowledge needed for lasting sobriety. Therapy sessions are safe spaces where our clients can explore their emotions, gain insight into the underlying causes of addiction, and learn invaluable coping strategies.
At Apex Recovery Nashville, we offer a wide range of addiction therapy programs to help our clients become fully recovered individuals. From evidence-based approaches like cognitive-behavioral therapy to holistic therapies involving yoga or meditation, our comprehensive therapy services provide a truly integrated approach to addiction recovery.
Our Addiction Therapy Programs
We offer a wide range of therapies in order to meet the diverse needs of our clients. The therapies you participate in will vary depending on your personalized treatment plan and may include the following:
Group therapy sessions provide an opportunity to build relationships with peers in recovery. Trained therapists lead group sessions and facilitate meaningful conversations that explore the causes of addiction, promote self-reflection, and build a supportive community of peers.
One-on-one therapy is essential for clients who need additional support as they work through the issues underlying their addiction. Our therapists provide personalized care and a safe space for clients to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT can help clients change their thinking and behavior in order to reduce the frequency of addictive behaviors. Clients learn to identify negative thought patterns and replace them with healthier ways of thinking. They also learn to identify triggers and develop coping strategies to prevent relapse.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT helps clients manage challenging emotions and behaviors. DBT combines elements of CBT with mindfulness strategies to help clients become more aware of their thoughts and feelings. Clients build problem-solving skills to better regulate emotions, improve communication, and stay focused on their recovery.
Addiction doesn’t only impact the individual. Family therapy sessions provide an opportunity to explore the ways addiction has affected family dynamics and improve communication in order to rebuild relationships. By understanding what triggers substance misuse, family members can find healthier ways to support each other through recovery.
Meditative therapy helps clients become more aware of their thoughts and emotions. Through mindfulness meditation, clients learn to observe their feelings without judgment and increase focus to support long-term sober living.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a powerful therapy technique used to treat symptoms of trauma. Clients will process traumatic memories with the help of a trained therapist to identify patterns of behavior and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
Motivational interviewing is an evidence-based approach that involves helping clients become more aware of the consequences of their behavior and identify their own values and goals for recovery. The goal is for clients to build commitment and develop their own motivation to abstain from drugs or alcohol.
If needed, clients may participate in trauma-informed therapy to address issues of past trauma that have contributed to their addiction. All our therapists are trained in trauma-informed care and provide individualized support to help clients process traumatic events in a safe, supportive setting.
Relapse Prevention Therapy
Relapse prevention therapy is an approach that helps individuals identify potential triggers of relapse and develop strategies for avoiding or managing these situations. It also encourages individuals to develop new, healthier coping skills and attitudes toward managing their symptoms.
In addition to these evidence-based therapeutic modalities, we offer a wide range of holistic approaches that can help clients achieve physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. These include:
- Acupuncture therapy
- Holistic therapy
- Hypnosis therapy
- Massage therapy
- Meditative therapy
- Music therapy

During your time in treatment, you will receive personalized care from our experienced and compassionate staff. We are committed to helping you create lasting change and maintain sobriety for the long term.
