Our sophisticated clinical program while drawing on the 12 Steps offers a 12 week modern approach to addiction recovery integrating best practice and evidenced based modalities with proven technological interventions to create a very individualized treatment strategy.
The Foundry believes strongly in individualized treatment services for those seeking recovery from addiction. Therefore, we use a wide variety of proven clinical modalities, interventions and tools, to create an overall plan for each individual based on their needs.
The clinical fundamental approaches used at The Foundry are Trauma-Informed Care and Motivational Interviewing as they both take a person centered approach, promote positive self-regard and create an atmosphere of compassion. Trauma Informed Care is important as a high number of those abusing substances have experienced some form of trauma in their life. It encourages all those seeking recovery to be treated as if they have experienced trauma whether they report trauma or not, so as not to re-traumatize them. The clinical team is trained to recognize trauma and how it manifests in each individual, as well as provide trauma treatment utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR) and/or somatic experiencing work.
The 12 Steps are an essential element of the clinical program at The Foundry as well. Since 1935, the 12 steps have helped millions of people recovery from addiction. Research has shown individuals who take part in treatment that infuses the 12-Program into its services has better outcomes. “Therapies that ‘dig in’ and seek to actively facilitate Twelve Step involvement are more effective than those that simply recommend AA” or those that do not recommend 12-Step involvement. These types of treatment programs found increased abstinent and a more resilient recovery.
Other modalities used are: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychoeducational Groups. These approaches provide those seeking recovery with skills and knowledge to aid them with their recovery goals and relapse triggers, as well as assist them in rewiring their brain to facilitate frontal cortex connection.
In addition The Foundry offers some technological interventions such as the Alpha Stem and BioSound Therapy. The Alpha Stem can aid in the reduction of pain, as well as drastically reduce anxiety and PTSD symptoms, alleviate some depressive symptoms and improve sleep through a patented waveform. The BioSound Therapy integrates biofeedback, music therapy, sound frequency massage and guided imagery. The binaural beats induce a theta level meditative state and low frequency vibrations trigger a natural relaxation response. The therapy helps induce coherent heart rhythm patterns that synchronize the body's nervous system, while the positive affirmations used in the guided imagery help develop mindfulness and awareness.
At The Foundry, we blend these interventions in a congruent way to meet the individualized needs of each person. Our approach has been created to help empower those seeking recovery while address their individualized needs.
