Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are facing an addiction have a number of trying challenges ahead of them outside of their physical dependency to their substance of choice. Addiction is not simply caused by one thing, such as the actual act of ingesting one or more substances. Instead, there are a number of emotional factors that often play into the development of an addiction. Therefore, the inclusion of individual therapy into a comprehensive treatment plan can be highly beneficial.

Individual therapy is a form of treatment that includes regularly meeting with a counselor in a private, one-on-one setting. Here, an individual who is addicted to an opioid such as morphine, prescription painkillers, or heroin can start working through his or her recovery. Some of the benefits of individual therapy can include:

  • Defining past trauma and upset that has contributed to the development of the addiction
  • Establishing new outlooks relating to the obvious and the hidden causes of the addiction
  • Learning new skills that allow for coping with stressful and upsetting emotions
  • Working through achievements and setbacks throughout the course of treatment
  • Developing new strategies that allow an individual to comfortably remove him or herself from a situation where his or her sobriety might be challenged
  • Creating personal goals for the present and the future

Learning how to acknowledge one’s own feelings, behaviors, and emotions, as well as the reasons behind those emotions, can greatly influence an individual’s ability to build a future that is free of drug use and healthy overall. Individual therapy is an excellent forum for this type of growth and discussion, as it allows an individual to obtain the support needed from his or her counselor to move forward in his or her care.

In addition to the benefits of individual therapy listed above, those who engage in this type of care can also experience the following benefits:

  • Increased sense of self-awareness
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved self-esteem

These benefits can set an individual up for a successful recovery, as well as allow him or her the chance to build a life that no longer includes the setbacks and upsets of addiction.

Building A Foundation

Building A Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

At Cartersville Comprehensive Treatment Center, we believe in individual therapy as an essential element to treating individuals who are striving to overcome an addiction to substances such as morphine, heroin, or prescription pain relievers. Allowing these individuals to work through their recovery with a counselor with whom they have established a therapeutic relationship can not only help them emotionally, but also ensure that they are following all guidelines provided to them regarding their care. Our sympathetic and skilled counselors will always check in with patients to determine how their treatment is progressing, as well as to address any issues that might be occurring while an individual is obtaining his or her care with us.

When individual therapy is included into the care that we provide, Cartersville Comprehensive Treatment Center can confidently say that we are successful in helping individuals regain a solid grasp on their lives so they can begin to live healthy.
