Experiential therapy is a tool to help people struggling with addiction, and co-occurring disorders communicate their thoughts and feelings about their addiction and coexisting conditions more freely.
The Raleigh House offers a broad spectrum of therapeutic interventions addressing the psychological and environmental factors contributing to addiction. We realize that no single treatment modality will deliver the desired outcomes for every client. However, our customized approach gives clients the resources, support, and education to manage their addiction and causal disorders better.
Experiential therapy is a treatment strategy that helps people address their addictions and mental health challenges by performing meaningful tasks. Clients who have experienced past trauma can be reluctant to speak in a standard one-on-one counseling session or a group therapy environment. Experiential therapies support addiction treatment protocols using nontraditional settings to help traumatized clients confront coexisting concerns.
Experiential therapy is particularly effective when performed in comfortable, familiar settings for the client. The sessions are designed to facilitate the exploration of complicated feelings while providing an outlet that enables their continued participation, even while addressing challenging issues and past traumas. The focus is on building enhanced self-awareness so the client can recognize and access the source of emotions that trigger substance misuse.
Some of the experiential therapies offered at The Raleigh House include
Our interventions are conducted by licensed mental health professionals with in-depth experience. Our team leads clients through complex emotional journeys safely and productively, giving them the support and coping mechanisms that allow them to navigate their everyday lives successfully. During our intensive inpatient programs, these therapies are paired with addiction treatment and psychiatric counseling for specific disorders.
Some addiction treatment programs are strictly by-the-book, offering “evidence-based” treatments to aid addiction recovery. Others focus on alternative and experiential therapies to help people heal from addiction. With so many different treatment programs and treatment options, which will give your loved one the best shot at long-term recovery?
At The Raleigh House, we believe it requires both evidence-based treatments and experiential therapies to heal the mind, body, and spirit from substance abuse and mental health disorders.
As mentioned, experiential therapy is often considered the nontraditional approach to treatment.
Unlike experiential therapy, “evidence-based” refers to treatments studied, researched, and shown to help people recover from substance abuse and mental health disorders.
These treatments are typically recognized by reputable organizations and found to be consistent and effective across various environments.
The most common types of evidence-based therapies include:
Our addiction treatment and recovery approach aligns with integrative medicine, where we embrace both Western medicine and Eastern therapeutic and healing modalities.

At The Raleigh House, we have helped thousands of clients manage their substance use disorders with our customized approach to addiction treatment.
