What Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and commitment therapy is a psychologically informed approach to overcoming addiction and coping with mental health issues. It encourages individuals to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them. The benefits of ACT include:

  • Enhancing psychological flexibility
  • Improving mental wellbeing
  • Reducing the power of negative thoughts
  • Promoting positive behavioral change

By accepting your experiences and committing to making necessary changes, you can foster personal growth and reduce the risk of relapse.

The Role of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in Addiction Treatment

ACT plays a significant role in addiction treatment. It assists individuals in recognizing and accepting their experiences, thereby reducing the struggle with their inner selves. This acceptance paves the way for committing to making life-enhancing changes.

An acceptance and commitment therapy program can play a crucial role in reading the shame and stigma surrounding addiction. By empowering young men living with addiction, the Red Oak team helps them build a positive self-image so they can confidently navigate recovery.

The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Program at Red Oak Recovery®

At our center, nestled in the tranquil surroundings of Asheville, NC, the acceptance and commitment therapy program uses proven techniques to help clients overcome addiction and mental health challenges.

Our ACT program includes:

  • Individual and group therapy sessions
  • Mindfulness exercises
  • Skills training to manage negative thoughts and feelings
  • Strategies for goal setting and commitment

During a normal ACT session, our therapists will create a safe and supportive space where clients can openly share their thoughts and feelings. Through guided mindfulness exercises, individuals learn to observe their inner experiences without judgment or resistance.

Why Our ACT Therapy Program Is Different

Choosing our ACT program means opting for a supportive environment that understands your struggles. We focus on individual needs, ensuring each person receives the care they deserve.

Our addiction treatment center is clinician-run, which means our therapists and medical professionals are heavily involved in the treatment process. They work alongside clients to develop individualized treatment plans that incorporate ACT and other evidence-based therapies.

We believe that our location in the tranquil Blue Ridge Mountains and the wilderness therapy program we utilize alongside evidence-based methods like ACT are valuable healing tools. Rather than just undergoing therapy, clients can build a connection with themselves and nature, gaining a deeper understanding of their minds and bodies.
