When loss occurs it can be devastating. While many of us go through a grieving process, it does not mean that we fully heal. If you are experiencing loss and need help dealing with the pain, New Freedom Academy offers a grief and loss therapy program. Our caring staff is here to help you work through the stages of grief.
Our individual therapy program in Massachusetts includes a combination of evidence-based and holistic treatment. If you are experiencing anxiety, addiction, depression, or other condition due to grief, our program can help you manage your emotions and feelings, as well as fully recover from your trauma.
Symptoms of Grief and Loss
If it seems impossible for you to let go of your loss, you may be going through feelings of intense grief that will not go away. Recognizing the symptoms of grief and loss is a first in getting treatment. In addition, some of the symptoms of grief and loss include:
- Inability to accept your loss and move on
- Prolonged anger, bitterness, or resentment for your loss
- Feeling guilty for what happened even if it is not your fault
- Detachment – feeling like nobody understands what you are going through
- Withdrawal from your normal life – finding it difficult to leave the house
- Apathy toward your life, your family, your job or anything else
If several months have passed and you still experience these feelings, then they can destroy your life and affect those around you. The time is now to get help at New Freedom Academy. In addition, we have the resources, programs, and staff that can help you work through your grief.
Professional Treatment for Grief and Loss
Our grief and loss therapy program, our trauma certified staff utilizes multiple approaches to help you recover from grief and loss such as:
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
Interpersonal therapy focuses on the core relationships that you currently have in your life. Also, this may include family, friends, or coworkers. These relationships are important in helping you reestablish your normal life after a loss.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy addresses the destructive or negative thoughts, feelings, or beliefs your have about your loss. By identifying the negativity in your mind you can manage your thoughts by replacing them with more positive thoughts that lead to a more productive and happy life beyond grief.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
If you are having a hard time controlling your emotions or how you react to certain situations, dialectical behavior therapy gives you the tools you need to manage your emotions. DBT helps you to validate what you are feeling and teaches you how to stabilize your emotions. This leads to more appropriate behaviors.
Loss can affect your entire family. We offer family and group therapy to help each member of your family heal from your loss. We can teach you how to function as a family and work through your grieving process together. A loss can bring your family closer together if know how to deal with it as a unit instead of apart.
