Rapid Resolution Therapy, more commonly referred to in its abbreviated version, RRT, is a method of psychotherapy used to help men and women overcome the lasting effects of unresolved trauma. RRT is combined with other methods of therapy in many addiction treatment programs, including that offered by Agape Treatment Center. Our program of recovery is comprehensive, and while it is therapeutically based, we also offer holistic treatment options, 12 step program immersion, and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Rapid Resolution Therapy is an important part of our trauma-informed treatment track, seeing as it provides clients with an effective and non-invasive way to overcome unresolved trauma and ultimately become the versions of themselves they were always meant to be.
What exactly is RRT, and how does it work? This is a short-lived therapeutic method, one that takes place between two and six sessions. Sessions are facilitated by a licensed RRT specialist, and they help clients adequately address self-destructive thought patterns, behavioral patterns, and emotional responses to uncomfortable situations. This therapeutic method is somewhat similar to Exposure Therapy, though it is – overall – a far more gentle approach to healing. Clients are slowly exposed to the person, place, or situation that led to the trauma in the first place, allowing the client to address his or her issues head-on and heal efficiently. However, clients do not need to discuss the traumatic event in-depth or re-open any old wounds to heal mentally and emotionally.
There are numerous benefits to RRT. According to the official RRT website, “Jon Connelly, of Rapid Resolution Therapy developed a method to treat trauma survivors that capitalizes on the idea that treatment for PTSD doesn’t have to include processing the traumatic event itself. Using specific language, Dr. Connelly can help people identify their trauma as well as the root cause of their feelings and symptoms in a single conversation. Other trauma-informed practitioners are also choosing to use feelings and needs-based therapy models to change conversations with trauma survivors.” While this therapeutic method does revolve around conversation (talk therapy), it does not focus on the traumatic event itself. Instead, it allows clients to process the impact of the trauma and focus on how they hope their current life will change. RRT focuses on the idea that achieving this change is entirely possible – many clients report feelings “transformed” and leave with an entirely new outlook on life after just one session.
In addition to Rapid Resolution Therapy, we at Agape Treatment Center provide clients with a range of other therapeutic methods, including:
It has been repeatedly proven that a combination of therapeutic methods, in combination with holistic approaches to healing and 12 step program involvement, is the most effective way to treat drug and alcohol addiction long-term.
At Agape Treatment Center we offer a demographic-specific treatment program for men and women of all ages who are living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, or any surrounding area, and who are suffering from an untreated substance abuse disorder of any severity. Recovery is different for everyone, and the level of care that most benefits one individual might not be the best option for another. For this reason, we offer several levels of treatment – all equally as effective, but some that supply clients with a greater amount of flexibility. We offer a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP), and Outpatient Treatment (OP). We understand that it is not always possible for you or your loved one to take a long-term break from day-to-day life and commit to several months in an inpatient treatment center. We cater to your personal needs and clinical requirements while consistently delivering the highest quality of clinical care available throughout all of Southern Florida.
Agape Treatment Center for substance abuse embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends, that serves regardless of circumstances. We provide individuals all over the country with the opportunity to achieve the gift of lasting sobriety.
