Victory Bay recognizes that addiction is a chronic disease that doesn’t have a singular cause or treatment. Addiction treatment that requires individualized care that begins with a service plan that focuses on one’s unique needs, incorporates a multidisciplinary team of providers, and develops a community of support.
Evidence-Based Therapy (EBT) is any therapeutic intervention that has proven efficacy based on peer-reviewed scientific evidence. Utilizing current research that focuses on the treatment of addiction, our clinical team uses their professional experience to tailor interventions. EBT is not only the use of common therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) but also the consideration of each client’s preferences, actions, and circumstances in developing a course of treatment. The goal of using evidence-based therapy is to increase the quality of treatment as well as the accountability of treatment providers.
To ensure the clinical expertise of clinicians Victory Bay Recovery Center places emphasis on the continued growth of its clinicians. Monthly modality trainings are required to facilitate competency in the treatment approaches implemented in our curriculum. Both our senior clinical team members as well as external trainers that have been deemed experts in the modality facilitate these trainings.
Victory Bay has formulated its clinical curriculum around the use of Evidence-Based Treatments including CBT, EMDR, ACT and DBT. These partnered with the strength and integrity of the 12-Step philosophy can change lives of those suffering with addiction.
An essential component of any addiction treatment program is the staff’s ability to develop a therapeutic alliance with diverse individuals. Creating an environment of safety and respect begins with the first interaction we have with the individual that is addicted or their family member. As we move to become a trauma informed agency, we understand, recognize, and respond to the effects of all types of trauma that has been experienced by the addicted person, those close to them, and their community.
We emphasize physical, psychological, and emotional safety not only during clinical hours or in our clinical offices but throughout every contact we have with our clients, families, and the greater recovery community. It’s part of Victory Bay’s vision to help rebuild a sense of empowerment and direction to those with addictions. By understanding and acknowledging the scope addiction related trauma impacts an individual we begin to break down the stigma and isolation allowing for opportunity for healing and the pathway to long term sobriety to begin.
