About

At Midwest Recovery, we use an eclectic treatment approach, drawing from the following evidence-based therapies, approaches and clinical practices:

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

emphasizes balancing behavioral change, problem-solving, and emotional regulation with validation, mindfulness, and acceptance.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

looks at negative thinking patterns that lead to self-destructive actions.

The overall goal is that the client will gain awareness into their own ability to modify their thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions.

Motivational Interviewing

MI utilizes a non-confrontational, collaborative effort between therapist and client to spark motivation and initiate change. The counselor engages with the client to explore his/her feelings, including ambivalence about changing, and works to help the client find their own motivations.

Health Realization

‘The Three Principles’; Mind - the universal energy that animates all of life, the source of innate health and well-being. Consciousness - the ability to be aware of one's life. Thought - the power to think and thereby to create one's experience of reality. HR seeks to provide a pathway to well-being that does not depend on external circumstances.
