Discover the evidence-based therapies we utilize at Hammocks on the Edisto.
Hammocks on the Edisto believes recovery is a process and not an event. Every woman’s path is unique in what challenges they are presented within life, what strengths they possess, and where they strive to grow. Our fundamental principles and practices are built on the disease concept of “addiction”- that it should be treated as a chronic disease, and not an acute episode. Our evidence-based therapies address the disease of addiction as a whole. Our approaches and programmings activities are focused on restoration and growth into a lifestyle of recovery.

With our beautiful campus and home-like environment, Hammocks on the Edisto takes the opportunity to create a healing environment for our residents. We’ll take the time to listen to our residents’ challenges and help them overcome them. We teach our residents how to manage their addictions and learn how to make healthy changes in the future. Each resident will take part in group therapy. However, the timeline looks different for each person because there is no single way to treat substance abuse for everyone.
Group therapy and counseling are successful when our residents connect to other people who can share the burdens and joys of their experiences. In group therapy, residents help each other by sharing those experiences and the wisdom they’ve gained. Our therapists will facilitate discussions about topics that are relevant to the resident’s healing and recovery. Groups can utilize a range of formats to make significant changes while at Hammocks on the Edisto.
This therapy group is facilitated by a therapist where residents discuss relevant issues at the moment. It utilizes the process for practical problem-solving, feedback, assistance, and insight.
Staff from various disciplines, including medical experts or nurses, will utilize their expertise and passions to facilitate education. They may also encourage discussion on a variety of topics related to understanding addiction and the recovery process. These groups will include using therapies and interventions to address substance use disorders and related issues.
Our residents regularly engage in mutual-help groups, such as 12-step therapy, AA, NA, and similar organizations. This treatment is a standard part of the healing process through fellowship and engagement with residents. Doing so helps our residents achieve sobriety and learn to incorporate and practice skills learned through an introduction to the 12 Steps or other groups daily.
The sober living skills one can obtain in a group format through other non-traditional holistic therapies. Furthermore, we use health and nutrition classes, exercises, and recreational outings to change and expand one’s horizons. Throughout our residents’ treatment stay, they will participate in activities and experiences that strengthen their journey into a lifestyle of recovery.
At Hammocks on the Edisto, we believe that incorporating the family at the outset of the treatment experience, even before admission, can be essential to one’s success. When someone is admitted to our facility, they will have the opportunity to have their family engaged on a weekly basis for Family Support sessions with other families via telehealth and in person. There are also other opportunities to engage in counseling sessions with the resident and their therapist.
Developed by Aaron Beck in the 1960s, cognitive-behavioral therapy is a problem-focused intervention that helps patients meet goals in a number of ways. For instance, a therapist and patient will work together in order to complete tasks such as:
With practice, patients may begin to see patterns emerging related to how their cognitive distortions can lead to unhealthy emotional responses and behaviors. Their therapist can help patients break this cycle by assisting patients in reframing their negative thoughts and exploring the subsequent changes in their feelings and behaviors.
At Hammocks on the Edisto, our clinical team combines CBT with other techniques such as motivational interventions, contingency management, dialectical-behavior therapy, and relapse prevention education to provide residents with a solid recovery foundation upon which they can continue to build.
Cognitive processing therapy or CPT is similar to cognitive-behavioral therapy in its approach but is considered a trauma-focused treatment. The traumas that commonly accompany or precede substance use disorders are central to our focus and efforts and inform our team’s use of appropriate therapeutic interventions. Cognitive processing therapy focuses on helping the individual rework trauma-related thoughts and responses. The purpose of CPT is to maintain and manage trauma symptoms by helping facilitate the emotional processing of the traumatic event ¹ and improve understanding of PTSD.
Dialectical behavior therapy at Hammocks on the Edisto takes place in both individual therapy sessions and in a group setting with other residents. It is comprised of four primary components: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal skills.
Mindfulness, or mindfulness-based stress reduction, has its roots in the practice of meditation. Engaging in mindfulness involves purposely paying attention to the present moment in a non-judgmental fashion. To do so requires practice, however, it can be beneficial for individuals who either focus too much energy ruminating on the past or worrying about the future. Making use of the five senses (sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste) to help focus the mind on the present is a common practice when engaging in mindfulness exercises.
Distress tolerance is a skill that develops with the practice of mindfulness. By focusing on the present moment without judgment, individuals learn to adopt radical acceptance of a given situation rather than reacting or attempt to change it. To embrace and practice distress tolerance means learning to experience painful emotions gracefully, rather than over-reacting or numbing emotions with drugs or alcohol.
When an individual has difficulty managing their emotions in a healthy manner, they may use alcohol and/or drugs in order to cope with their feelings.
For some, emotional dysregulation can be due to genetics, traumatic childhood experiences, or a lack of positive role models. Emotion regulation involves learning to gain control over the expression of our feelings. DBT skills teach individuals how to identify and label emotions, as well as healthy ways to cope with them.
Interpersonal effectiveness involves learning healthy communication skills, like assertiveness and problem-solving, and utilizing these skills to foster healthy relationships. When individuals develop positive and effective communication, they are better equipped to articulate their needs, which in turn can boost self-confidence and self-respect.
One of the biggest reasons that the therapeutic process can falter is a disconnect between patient and therapist. The patient may not feel comfortable with their therapist and often think that they don’t understand them. When a therapist uses the motivational interviewing technique, it can facilitate a deeper connection between patient and therapist, allowing for a better experience in their recovery.
The basic principles of motivational interviewing involve encouraging the patient to discuss their mental health issues in a supportive and persuasive conversation. The five principles of motivational interviewing include:
Each session must have a clear purpose or goal to get the patient to be an active participant. At the same time, the therapist will interject at crucial moments to help the patient better understand the difference between what they say and what they do. Once this happens, the patient will better understand how they are self-sabotaging their recovery and will be able to move forward.
