Therapy and Support

Sometimes you just need some extra support and to talk with someone. CODAC’s compassionate team of therapists is prepared to help you work through complex issues.

Therapy is an important part of treatment for trauma, mental health concerns and substance use disorders. CODAC's individual, couples, family and group therapy helps members process through current and prior life experiences and learn healthy behaviors and coping skills.

Psychotherapy utilizes specialized techniques conducted by licensed professionals. Your therapy will be complimented by other general support and skill-building classes also offered at CODAC. We provide support on the topics of self-esteem and body image, women’s health concerns, trauma, stress and much more.

Our Therapeutic Approach

  • Focus on solutions: You and your therapist will discuss your goals, make a plan to reach your goals and mark your successes along the way. It is important you feel like you are making progress.
  • When it comes to therapy, we recommend short-term individual therapy mixed with participation in ongoing group therapies, skill-building and building relationships with the natural supports in your life.
  • It's about your needs. Your therapy plan will be based on your own unique needs and motivations; we do not use a cookie-cutter approach.
  • It's about your independence: Therapy services at CODAC aim to help you be independent and build healthy natural supports.

Group Therapy

Group Therapy is a form of therapy that is done in small groups of individuals with similar concerns or goals. Group Therapy provides a safe environment to join with others to talk about problems or concerns, learn from others and better understand yourself. Some groups are gender specific, meaning that they are for men or women only. Women-only groups allow you to gather strength from other women who have experienced similar challenges and issues in their life. In a group setting, you can build relationships and improve your communications skills without having to feel isolated or stressed.
