At Passages Ventura, we focus on healing various underlying conditions causing a person to abuse drugs and alcohol. To uncover those pressing forces, we utilize psychotherapy to successfully discover your root causes and relieve you from the inside out. During your time with us at Passages, you will have private, one-on-one sessions with a licensed, doctoral-level Psychologist who is professionally trained and skillfully experienced in substance abuse therapy.
In your one-on-one sessions with our Psychologists, you will finally discover the underlying reasons that are causing you to abuse substances. Having difficulties coping with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, marriage, work, relationships, the death of a loved one, financial burdens, illness, insecurity, or physical impairment are the most common reasons for substance abuse. At Passages Ventura, we utilize psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and family systems techniques to tailor our sessions to the client's needs. While most treatment centers have only one individual counseling session per week with a bachelor or master level clinician, at Passages, you will receive multiple private therapy sessions with our doctoral-level Psychologists per week. We have seen how this approach gives clients a more in-depth way of processing their unique issues.
