Multimodal Therapy for Enhanced Recovery

Multimodal Therapy

Recovering from a substance use disorder is a lifelong adventure. 

Throughout the recovery process it’s important to take a multifaceted approach to addiction medicine; the efficacy of multimodal therapy for addiction is scientifically backed. 

A one-year study following clients who included multimodal therapy in their addiction treatment plan saw a success (as defined by being sober after one year) rate between 33% and 88%- as opposed to those not including multimodal therapy for recovery. 

No two recovery stories are ever the same- treatment is no different. 

After the initial medical detox phase, treatment begins! Discovering which modality of therapy will benefit one’s recovery the most is absolutely crucial.

What is Multimodal Therapy in a Nutshell?

At its core, multimodal therapy combines two or more modalities of treatment, ensuring the multifaceted hurdles of substance use disorders are treated. 

For instance, a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and a medication plan is a common form of treatment you may be familiar with.

Multimodal therapy targets varying aspects of addiction, addresses latent trauma, adjusts negative behaviors and habits, and facilitates complete mental wellness.

The effectiveness of multimodal therapy lies within the seven facets of treatment, addressing specific problems for each phase of addiction recovery. BASIC ID is an acronym for the following aspects of treatment with multimodal therapy: 


Tackling negative and problem behaviors is a crucial part of therapy. During this course of treatment clients learn to address negative behaviors related to substance abuse. 

Some examples of these behaviors could include drinking excessively, neglecting work obligations, driving while under the influence, engaging in unprotected sex, and self-sabotaging one’s livelihood or relationships.


Affect addresses one’s feelings, emotions, and improves emotional intelligence. Clients learn to channel negative emotions including depression, anger, and anxiety positively without the use of addictive substances.

This aspect of treatment focuses on the root of emotional problems and works to resolve them- thus lessening one’s symptoms of substance abuse. Those self-medicating for depression, anxiety and the like learn how to harness these feelings productively on a day-to-day basis.


Your senses comprise hearing, touch, taste, sight, and smell. Unpleasant sensations can be very troubling and indicative of a larger issue.

Some examples of sensations include butterflies in your stomach, muscle tension, a racing heartbeat, sweating, or shortness of breath. If a therapist can tap into your sensations, they may uncover lingering underlying issues. 

While this can be an effective modality, therapists often neglect it. 


Everyone conjures up images in their mind. Imagery refers to the flashbacks, visualizations, fantasies, and daydreams you have. When these internal images are negative or distorted, they have a negative effect on your thoughts, self-talk, behavior, and actions. Adjusting mental images is a crucial stage of recovery. 


Patterns of thought, values, and beliefs make up cognition;.if you have negative conversations with yourself, they’re usually a reflection of self-limiting beliefs. 

Exploring cognition helps identify problem belief systems, outdated coping mechanisms, and self-sabotaging behavior- like not showing up to work, or morning drinking, and pushing friends and family away, to name a few. 

Addressing cognitive distortions allows for healthy, meaningful relationships as a direct result of accepting oneself with the help of cognition therapy.

Interpersonal Relationships

Maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships is key to recovery. 

Interpersonal relationship therapy teaches clients how to manage relationships, address toxic traits and establish boundaries for oneself and those around them. The relationships examined during this therapy extend to family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, authority figures, and beyond; essentially- this modality teaches clients how to interact healthily with others. 


Commonly referred to as, combination therapy, includes a medication plan for managing sobriety, mental health disorders, and physical maladies. This modality is unique to each client, as one’s mental and physical health are addressed with medications, stabilizing chemical imbalances and treating medical conditions. 

Discovery Point Retreat’s clinicians include total wellness encompassing nutrition, exercise, and sleeping habits as they directly relate to recovering from substance use disorders.
