Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are grappling with an addiction will find that they have more to conquer than their dependency on one or more substances. There are numerous causes of addiction outside of the physical act of ingesting a drug. Emotional factors often play a part in the development of an addiction. It is for this specific reason that individual therapy is included into a patient’s overall treatment plan for addiction when partaking in treatment at a Southern California Comprehensive Treatment Center.

The treatment method that includes working with a counselor in a private setting, known as individual therapy, can be exceptionally beneficial for patients striving towards achieving sobriety from an addiction to substances, such as prescription painkillers, heroin, or morphine. Some of these benefits can include the following:

  • Pinpointing past trauma or distress that might have lead to substance abuse
  • Developing clear perspectives regarding both evident and underlying causes of abuse or addiction
  • Creating healthy coping skills that reduce stress and/or upsetting emotions
  • Handling setbacks and accomplishments throughout the treatment process
  • Devising strategies to help avoid and cope with situations where drug cravings or temptations arise
  • Manifesting positive personal goals for both the present and the future

Learning how to understand feelings, behaviors, reasons and emotions behind an addiction and the actions that come along with it can help an individual construct a future that is free from drug abuse and promotes good health.  Individual therapy is an excellent resource for talking about these issues, as working with a counselor can allow a patient to develop a strong sense of support and encouragement at this time.

The above listed benefits of individual therapy can allow a patient to experience the following throughout his or her process of recovery:

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

Each one of these benefits can help an individual build a strong foundation that will allow him or her to move on from their addiction and into a positive and productive existence that is free from the confines of substance abuse.

At Southern California Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we believe that individual therapy is a necessity when individual is trying to achieve sobriety from an addiction to morphine, heroin, or prescription drugs. Individual therapy is effective in giving adults the opportunity to process their emotions in a therapeutic environment. It is through these means of care that we know our patients will receive treatment for emotional issues, as well as the care needed to ensure that they are complying with all instructions regarding their medication assisted treatment. Our understanding and trained counselors follow up with patients to determine their course of progress, as well as to discuss any concerns that develop during treatment.
