Neuropsychology and Psychotherapy

Orenda is unique in the understanding of the negative impact of addiction on the patient, family and performance. This understanding is shared across the program and is evident in the scheduling, treatment planning and offerings for each individual. While the Orenda program follows the holistic approach to treating the mind, body and spirit, we are also able to incorporate more resources, individual sessions, specialist practitioners, and invest greater time understanding the challenges of continuing care, family and professional responsibilities.

It is also clinically important while at Orenda to provide comprehensive assessments, to best establish baselines and identify methods to successfully treat the individual. This process is more extensive, as is the incorporation into the scheduling and overall treatment planning and approach. These next level interventions and staff separate the Orenda program from others in the market.

Orenda also strives to expose each patient to some of the challenges that are likely unavoidable upon leaving treatment. Whether that be a late night private business dinner, a post-round clubhouse celebration, or charitable ball setting; Orenda seeks to identify and address external stressors that will likely persist. There is also the ability to process those environments and emotions clinically and develop solutions and relapse prevention tools in real time.

Our clinical team utilizes evidenced-based approaches, which are supported by empirical evidence and best practice proven to be effective psychotherapies for the treatment of addiction and co-occurring mental health conditions. Key areas of focus within our clinical program include but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Experiential Therapies
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Bowen Family Systems Therapy
  • Somatic Therapy 
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Spiritual Counseling
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Person Centered Therapy

Immersion Therapy

Orenda strives to expose each patient to some of the challenges they face everyday, and will continue to face once leaving treatment. Traditional residential programs typically do not allow for simulation and immersion in high trigger environments. Our program provides for this unique, clinically guided opportunity and for addressing themes that are relevant to this population, such as:

  • Driven to succeed – where does the motivation emanate from
  • High intelligence and unlearning the behaviors of an addiction
  • Understanding the brain’s pursuit of pleasure
  • Self-medicating stress and underperformance

CLINICAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

Neuropsychology assesses brain function to identify needs and inform care. Substance misuse and the side effects of active addiction can impact multiple areas of brain function and performance. Orenda uses neuropsychological testing to assess intellectual functioning, memory function, attention, concentration, and executive function. Available neuroimaging, such as MRI and CT scans, may also be evaluated as part of neuropsychological testing.

Psychotherapy is a mainstay of addiction and mental health treatment. Insights gleaned from neuropsychological evaluations are incorporated into client psychoeducation and psychotherapy care plans.

Orenda clients receive intensive individual and group therapy. Orenda therapists are experts in multiple psychotherapy modalities and take a flexible approach that can make treatment more comfortable and productive.
