Break Away offers individual therapy for all Clients. Therapy is an integrative part of the recovery process that can help facilitate a means of growth, healing, and long-term change. Clients are able to gain insight, process emotional distress, heal from past trauma, and develop goals toward their future. Therapy is a safe, confidential, and judgement-free space to express anything on your mind.
Treatment modalities include:
Break Away views’ chemical or alcohol dependency as a progressive illness that affects the entire family. The effect of the user’s behaviour can easily be felt by others within the family. However, in turn, each family member’s reaction to the user’s behaviour affects the user’s behaviour once again.
Consequently, Break Away assumes that in this chain reaction, every family member plays a part in the dysfunctional behaviour of a disturbed member. In the case of alcohol and drug dependency, an individual’s symptomatic behaviour soon reverberates throughout the family and becomes progressively magnified.
Family therapy is offered to help heal dysfunctional family dynamics and create a safe space for open communication and opportunities for healing. Break Away focuses on the characteristic patterns of relationships and interaction between family members.
The main therapeutic focus of the program is two-fold. First, the communication within the family is examined so that each member learns to communicate in a more direct and less harmful manner. Second, each member of the family learns to get in touch with their feelings. Emotions lead to behaviour in words or actions.
By learning to identify the hidden emotions involved, each participant can then move to consciously control their own harmful words or actions. By helping families to communicate and identify their emotions, each family is given the tools to break through their own spiral of distress.
BreakAway offers daily group therapy sessions for all Clients. Break Away believes that group therapy is an imperative part of the recovery process. Group therapy allows individuals to learn to express their emotions in an environment in which they can receive feedback from their peers. Group therapy helps individuals gain better insight and self-awareness by listening to others dealing with similar issues. Group therapy is additionally an excellent means of building a positive support system and a sense of community among peers.
