  • 12 Steps
  • Is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion or other behavioral problems? It is a fellowship of people helping other people with an addiction or a compulsive behavior to obtain abstinence, which means no longer using a mood-altering substance such as drugs or alcohol, or compulsively doing a behavior such as gambling or sex. Step one through three deals with the individual’s acceptance of their inability to control their addiction alone and the need of support to remain abstinent. Steps four through nine teach the individual to take responsibility for their own actions and characteristics in order to create change in their life. Steps four, six and eight require self-reflection while steps five, seven and nine are the application of those reflections. The focus in steps 10 through 12 is on maintaining recovery. Each step builds upon the previous step in a progressive course of action.


  • Anger Management
  • This is a psycho-therapeutic program for anger prevention and control, which has been described as deploying successfully. Anger is frequently a result of frustration, or of feeling thwarted from something we feel to be important. Anger can also be a defensive response to underlying fear or feelings of vulnerability or powerlessness. Anger programs consider anger to be a motivation caused by an identifiable reason which can be logically analyzed, and if suitable worked toward. Anger management therapy may be in group sessions, or one-on-one with a psychotherapist. The therapist helps you to identify the source of your anger, teach you skills to respond in a non-aggressive way to anger triggers, handle the triggers, work with you to identify moments when thought processes are not leading to logical and rational conclusions, and to correct their thinking, learn how to express feelings and needs assertively in situations that normally lead to anger and frustration, without becoming aggressive.


  • Individual Behavioral Therapy
  • During the individual therapy, the therapist uses cognitive behavioral approach in helping patients deal with triggers. CBT basically homes in on your behavioral responses to specific triggers. Once those are identified, the therapist will guide you toward new, healthier responses to those triggers. The one-on-one therapy sessions provide a safe environment for you to feel free to share your fears and concerns, allowing the therapist to provide tools and alternative behavioral responses to these sources of anxiety and low mood.

Olive Prime also offers highly individualized special sessions that could be tailored for anger management, trauma management, stress management or grief therapy, offering coping techniques to help improve your ability to handle issues in a controlled manner rather than feeling the need to use drugs or alcohol.



  • Couple Therapy
  • Marital therapy is based on the premise that keeping a marriage healthy and happy over time takes work and is sometimes quite a difficult task and this form of therapy help people in troubled marriages to heal their marriages. Our skilled marriage therapists offer support and intervention that can help distrusting disengaged partners to safely address their difficulties and begin the process of problem solving and healing. Our therapist helps couples to recognize their problems and jointly work out their differences. During sessions of marital therapy, therapists help couples to work through their difficulties which may include estrangement and loss of loving feelings, communication problems, affairs, mismatched expectations, and competitive struggles to determine whose vision and goals will dominate. The session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes in a therapeutic environment, mostly the therapist’s office.


  • Trauma Management
  • This is a therapy that help individuals who have experienced one form of trauma or the other recover from traumatic experience. It is a comprehensive and multicomponent behavioral treatment for chronic post-traumatic stress disorder.


  • Family Therapy
  • At Olive prime we believe that family forms an integral part of patient’s care in addiction treatment. We understand that family support can be a crucial treatment element. Addiction affects the entire family, often culminating in destructive co-dependency, and change in family values, enabling behaviors or intense anger and resentment. During the family therapy sessions, many issues are resolved, and feelings are addressed. Intrinsic to the long-term success of any substance abuse treatment program, family participation factors heavily in future support for the addicted person after they are discharged.

    In addition to therapy, we also have recovering addicts who have maintained a long-term sobriety come in as scheduled to share their own stories, offering others a sense of hope about their own future. Sometimes the recovering addicts delve into practical issues like rebuilding careers post-treatment, or simply offer inspirational speeches to help lift spirits. These recovering addicts also serve as sponsors to others in treatment.

    We also offer alternative therapies depending on its inclusion in patient’s individual treatment plan.
