Attachment-Focused Psychotherapy in Residential Treatment

Attachment disorder is a general term for people who have trouble forming attachments to others. While it’s usually diagnosed in adolescents, adults may also have attachment issues. Your problems making connections with people as an adult may well be linked to an undiagnosed childhood attachment disorder.

If you or someone you love struggles with this, a residential program with attachment-focused psychotherapy could be the best path forward. At Creative Care, our team of doctors and therapists can help you work through your attachment issues in a safe and nurturing residential environment.

What are the signs of attachment disorder?

If you have attachment disorder, you can find it difficult to make meaningful connections with the people in your life. You could have problems connecting and interacting with your parents, siblings, or children. It might also seem challenging to make close friends or find a partner to share your life with. Your attachment issues could even lead to depressive symptoms. 

What is attachment-focused psychotherapy?

Attachment-focused psychotherapy is different from most psychological and therapeutic treatments. Instead of your doctor keeping a strict disconnect on a personal level, the goal is for your psychotherapist to attune to your needs and help you create a healthy attachment.

Once you learn how to relate appropriately to another person, you can model that behavior in making attachments to people in your life, both new and old.

What are the advantages to residential treatment settings?

In a Creative Care residential treatment setting, you and your care team can keep constant focus on your treatment, without distractions. We’re growing to four locations, and each provides a serene, private place to let you practice making and maintaining healthy relationships in a controlled setting.

Residential treatment — with a minimum stay of 30 days — allows you time to break free from attachment disorder and work through any past issues that may have contributed to your unhealthy behaviors.

What does attachment-focused psychotherapy include?

Psychotherapy helps you work through attachment disorders by talking through your issues with a trusted psychotherapist. Their job is to help you understand when and how you may have encountered triggers for avoidance and other attachment-resistant behaviors as well as why you have trouble building strong relationships. 

In addition to individual counseling, you have access to group therapy, exercise and athletics, outdoor relaxation, horse therapy, and nutritional plans to help treat your entire psyche holistically and mend the emotional wounds that could be holding you back.
