Our Therapeutic Approach at Embark Recovery
Embark Recovery’s clinical team consists of only highly, extremely qualified individuals. Each clinician, at our treatment center in Prescott, Arizona, has a master’s degree or higher in a field related to substance abuse treatment. Not only that, each licensed clinician has years of experience in the substance abuse treatment field and behavioral health.
The following is a description from our Head Clinician, Julie Nave (MA, LPC) about what we do at The Embark Recovery Treatment Center:
The Embark Recovery program is comprehensive and will address all areas of life to build a path of recovery unique to each individual in the program. Embark Recovery adheres to evidence based practices for the outpatient program. The primary treatment approaches DBT-S (Dialectical behavioral therapy for substance use disorders) and CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy). Interwoven into these approaches, we also focus on teaching early recovery, relapse prevention, and shame resiliency skills. Cognitive behavioral therapy approaches focus on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. By exploring patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions and the beliefs that direct these thoughts, people are able to modify their patterns of thinking to improve coping. DBT-S also emphasizes building skills for mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. All of these skills are important for success with a path of recovery and building confidence to have a life worth living.
