Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

When someone is grappling with an opioid addiction, he or she often has more to process than just his or her physical dependence on his or her substance of choice. The causes of addiction are not triggered by the physical act of using, rather a number of emotional factors have added to its development. Therefore, we feel it is necessary for individual therapy to be included into effective addiction treatment.

Individual therapy is a form of treatment that includes working with a counselor in a private, one-on-one setting so that a patient can focus on the many facets of his or her recovery. Additionally, individual therapy affords patients with many benefits, including:

Determining past turmoil and trauma that has attributed to the abuse of substance(s)
Forming new perspectives regarding the hidden causes behind substance abuse
Creating new coping skills designed to help make stressful situations easier
Working through achievements and setbacks that occur during treatment
Developing strategies that help patients handle trying situations in which their recovery might be tested
Setting personal goals for the present and future
Being able to understand one’s own behaviors, emotions, feelings, and reasons behind life choices can significantly aid in helping a patient prepare for a future that is free from substance abuse. Individual therapy is an excellent place to air out these issues, as it allows a patient to feel supported by his or her counselor.

Additionally, even more benefits are possible through individual therapy, including the following:

Improved self-esteem
Increased self-confidence
Reduced stress
Increased sense of self-awareness
Each of these benefits can help a patient build a solid foundation for a strong recovery that includes improved health, happiness, and the freedom from substance abuse.

Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

At Brattleboro Comprehensive Treatment Center, we feel that individual therapy is a primary component to treating patients who are attempting to defeat addictions to opioids like heroin and prescription pain medications. Allowing patients to work through their recovery within a safe space and with the support of a counselor can help them emotionally, as well as ensure that they are following the recommendations provided to them throughout their treatment. Our kind and compassionate counselors work alongside patients to check in on their progress, as well as address any issues they might be having during their care.

By including individual therapy into the treatment that we supply, we, at Brattleboro Comprehensive Treatment Center, are offering care that can help patients rebuild their lives through learning and applying skills that allow them to free themselves from opioid addictions. If you or someone you care for needs the complete care that we provide, please call us right now. We can help.
