Break the Cycle of Unhealthy Relationships & Heal

All relationships exist on a spectrum from toxic and abuse to healthy and fulfilling. For those who have suffered from emotional abuse, strained family relationships, toxic romantic partnerships, or other unhealthy relationships, achieving healthy emotional intimacy can seem unfathomable.

For some, when relationships are strained or unhealthy, we become withdrawn, tend to live in self-doubt, or begin to isolate themselves entirely.

As human beings, we are inherently social creatures. A lack of healthy relationships can result in turning to substance use to manage the pain or mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.

You deserve fulfilling, healthy relationships that add value to your life. We can help you get there at The Heights Treatment.

The Role of Healthy Relationships Therapy & Recovery

When an individual is suffering from addiction, relationships inevitably suffer, too. Addiction leads us to do things out of alignment with our true selves, whether it’s deceptive behaviors, lashing out, or ignoring a family member or partner’s needs.

Addiction can cause long term damage to healthy relationships, while fostering toxic relationships that contribute to the cycle of addiction. Learning to identify a toxic relationship, patterns of abuse, and understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, positive relationships can be formed and healed.

Levels of Care at the Heights Treatment

Our programming is scheduled during the day so that those in our care can commit to recovery while maintaining their careers, family responsibilities, and other commitments in the evenings.

Healthy Relationships Therapy is part of a multidisciplinary approach to addiction recovery and is included in all levels of care at The Heights Treatment.

Our programs include:

Individualized Intensive Program (IIP)

IIP is ideal for patients transitioning from a higher level of treatment or an inpatient program. This program offers evidence-based modalities and an integrative approach, but patients still have the flexibility to balance their recovery with responsibilities at work, home, or school.

The Role of Healthy Relationships Therapy & Recovery

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

A PHP is an intensive level of outpatient care that’s ideal for patients transitioning from a residential treatment program or IIP. Patients still have the flexibility to tend to work, home, or school but benefit from a structured environment for treatment and care in our welcoming rehab center in Houston.

The Individual Benefits of Healthy Relationship Therapy

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our IOP is a good fit for patients who have completed IIP or inpatient treatment but may need more rigorous care than an outpatient program. This program can help patients who have taken the first step toward recovery on their own and need more long-term support, treatment, and accountability.

Learn to Identify Toxic Relationship & Patterns of Abuse

Outpatient Program (OP)

Mental health treatment programs provide evidence-based behavioral health therapy and psychiatry. A positive community of peer support, family therapy sessions, and a compassionate staff with an individualized, strategic plan. Patients learn skills like positive awareness, coping skills, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness in regular therapy sessions.

What Are Love Languages?

The term “love language” refers to the manner in which an individual prefers to show and receive love. The five “original” love languages coined by Gary Chapman are words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, touch, and quality time. While these are what are most widely referred to as love languages, people express and receive love in many different ways.

Is Healthy Relationships Therapy Part of Couples Therapy?

Although both forms of therapy help you establish and heal positive romantic relationships, Healthy Relationships Therapy is done individually while couples counseling is done with your partner.

Does Healthy Relationships Therapy Help You Recover From an Abusive Relationship?

Emotional abuse is trauma that can have a lasting effect on your mental health. Healthy Relationships Therapy can help you recover from an abusive relationship by helping you process the abuse, develop ways to identify unhealthy and toxic relationships, and create positive relationships in the future.

If you or a loved one are being abused, get help right away. Abuse relationships are unpredictable and do not get better. Abuse can turn fatal very quickly.
