Heal & Recover With Brené Brown’s Signature Methodology

The way we live has a direct correlation to the emotions, thoughts, and beliefs we have about ourselves.

For those struggling with addiction, feelings of worthlessness, guilt, shame, and self-loathing are unfortunately uncommon–and, as we find out through the recovery process, unhelpful and unnecessary.

You don’t have to live stuck in a cycle of self-doubt. You sought recovery because you wanted to make a change for the better. Your mindset and self-perception must heal so that you can make a full recovery.

At The Heights Treatment, we can help you find the courage it takes to live bravely through Daring Way therapy.

What Is the Daring Way?

The Daring Way is a methodology based on the research of professor, lecturer, and author of numerous New York Times Bestsellers, Dr. Brené Brown.

The research of Dr. Brené Brown has shown that true strength and resilience is born from the power of vulnerability. The primary focus of The Daring Way is to access our inner vulnerability so that we can dare to lead and to live braver lives.

How Can The Daring Way Help in Recovery?

With addiction, feelings of worthiness may go out the window, leaving room for guilt, shame, and self-doubt.

The Daring Way helps those struggling with these negative thoughts and emotions about themselves practice, wholehearted living through shame resilience skills so that full recovery can be achieved.

This modality helps the client understand that recovery isn’t about perfectionism, it’s about progress, self-compassion, forgiveness, and growth so that one can move forward and create a life beyond the addiction.

At The Heights Treatment, we believe that in order to achieve recovery, the whole person must be treated. We believe that relapse prevention stems from a strong foundation of self-empowerment and inner strength.

Therapies like The Daring Way can help you get there.

Our Levels of Care

At The Heights Treatment, we know that maintaining autonomy is key in a successful recovery. Our therapies and treatments occur during business hours so that those in our recovery programs can focus on their healing without sacrificing their jobs, schooling, or family responsibilities.

Our programming includes:

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.

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.

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.

Where Can I Find Daring Way Therapy?

Daring Way therapy is not as widely accessible as other types of therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). It is a specialized therapy requiring that those leading these sessions are Daring Way certified.

Daring Way therapy is available at The Heights as part of our holistic approach to substance abuse recovery.

What Does a Daring Way Facilitator Do?

During a session, a Certified Daring Way Facilitator (CDWF) will encourage participants to explore their behaviors, motivations, emotions, and thoughts that are keeping them in the cycle of addiction and help them identify new choices and patterns that lead them toward a more authentic, fulfilling life.

A CDWF facilitates the exploration of vulnerability as it relates to both feelings of guilt and shame as well as courage.

This type of therapy is a holistic adjunct therapy to talk therapy and other evidence-based modalities.
