Guests are guided by their primary therapist during DBT sessions, learning a wide range of coping techniques that are instrumental in not only recovery, but life as well.

These in-depth examinations assist our therapists to determine the most effective approach to the individual guest’s treatment. Moreover, the responses provided during the assessments help to uncover the most appropriate means of achieving personal goals while in your individual therapy sessions.

Individual Therapy in Our Continuum of Care
Our residential inpatient program offered at Seaglass, along with the entirety of the Royal Life Centers addiction treatment network, never recycles the same treatment plan from one guest to the next. In fact, we believe each guest deserves an individualized treatment plan tailored to best meet their needs and goals for recovery. In bringing our person-centric ideals to life, each customized treatment plan is developed collaboratively between the guest and their primary therapist, ensuring that the well-being of our guests is always priority number one at Seaglass.
For this reason, the trusting relationships between each guest and their therapist begins during the first session and continues to flourish throughout treatment. The consistent, authentic connections cultivated within our women-only treatment center are the backbone of our program and make way for the growth and healing offered within individual therapy.
While in detox and residential treatment, guests will attend one-hour individual therapy sessions, every day. During outpatient treatment, individual therapy is once a week. Guests are encouraged to maximize their therapy sessions by being as open and honest as they can. Therapy is a two-way street. For therapy to be effective and lasting, both the guest and their therapist must be able to express their own views and insights. Open, honest communication is essential to individual therapy.
