Understanding Amends

Making amends is a core principle in many recovery programs, including the 12-step model. It involves taking responsibility for past actions, acknowledging the harm caused to oneself and others, and actively seeking to make things right. For individuals struggling with addiction, this process can be daunting, yet immensely liberating. It paves the way for healing, reconciliation, and rebuilding relationships.

Statistics on Addiction and Recovery

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), substance use disorders affect millions of Americans each year, with significant social and economic consequences. However, with effective treatment and support, recovery is possible. Studies have shown that participation in comprehensive treatment programs significantly increases the likelihood of long-term sobriety. For example, individuals engaged in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) have shown marked improvement in managing cravings, addressing underlying issues, and sustaining recovery.

At Evoke Wellness at Coconut Creek, we’re committed to providing evidence-based treatments that address the complex needs of individuals struggling with addiction. Our alumni program offers ongoing support and resources to help clients maintain sobriety beyond their time in residential treatment. Through group therapy, sober support groups, and personalized treatment plans, we empower clients to navigate the challenges of recovery with confidence and resilience.

The Role of Therapy Programs

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) are integral components of our treatment approach. CBT helps clients identify and modify harmful thought patterns and behaviors associated with addiction, while DBT equips them with practical skills to regulate emotions, cope with stress, and improve interpersonal relationships. Additionally, our trauma therapy program provides specialized care for individuals grappling with past traumas, which often co-occur with substance use disorders.

Family Involvement and Support

Addiction doesn’t just impact the individual; it affects the entire family unit. That’s why our family program is an essential part of the recovery journey. Through family therapy sessions, educational workshops, and ongoing support, we address the dynamics of addiction within the family system and foster healing and communication.

Making amends is not just a step in recovery; it’s a profound act of self-discovery and transformation. At Evoke Wellness at Coconut Creek, we guide individuals through this process with compassion, understanding, and evidence-based treatments. Through our comprehensive programs, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, sober support groups, trauma therapy, and family involvement, we empower clients to reclaim their lives and build a foundation for lasting sobriety.
