One of the most important components of your drug and alcohol treatment will be individual therapy. This is when you will work one-on-one with a therapist to uncover what’s happening with you and to develop tools to overcome your challenges. While there are many benefits to a customized treatment plan that includes other therapies as well, this component is essential. At Crestview Recovery, it is one of the services our team will provide to you.
What Is Individual Therapy Able to Offer to You?
Investing in your health begins with understanding what’s happening to you and how you got to this point. It then moves into understanding how to overcome it. That is what we can do through individual counseling. Here are some of the key benefits it offers.
Opening Up to Your Therapist
One of the ways individual therapy for drug and alcohol addiction can help you is by providing a way for you to open up. Often, it is what we do not think about and push aside that makes the biggest difference in our health and wellbeing. For example, when you open up to your therapist, you may uncover past trauma or pain that may be creating a negative thought process in your mind. Individual therapy can help you get to that problem and then help you to overcome it as well.
Discussing Your Problems Without Judgement
Another key benefit is that you have someone that understands what you are going through and can provide you with solutions, insight, and support without any judgment. No matter how well your friends want to support you or how much they love you, you may feel as though you are being judged. That does not happen when you are working with a therapist. Anything you say is something they understand and can help you with rather than hold against you.
Learn Strategies for Healing
In group therapy, you’ll work on developing confidence and building relationships. In individual therapy, you also get to work with your therapist on creating solutions for you. You will learn, for example, about the triggers that often lead you to drug and alcohol use. You may also learn how to change your negative thought patterns to minimize the need for you to continue to use. You will learn how to hold yourself accountable but also how to make better decisions in the heat of the moment. Many times over, you will feel empowered through your therapy.
There are many types of individual therapy available, including things like cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavioral therapy. Each one is a different tool that may help you address and maintain your needs.
It Is One Component of Your Care
This type of therapy is just one part of the care you need and will get with us. You will also work closely with a team of professionals to create a therapy plan that is right for you, including group therapy and experiential therapy. You may learn about holistic care, nutritional counseling, and much more. Many of our clients also benefit from family therapy.
When you come in for a consultation, we will talk to you about all of your options and needs. We’ll work closely with you to find the right balance of care. This may include:
- Men’s drug rehab
- Women’s drug rehab
- Partial hospitalization program
- Intensive outpatient program
- Extended care addiction treatment
Within each of these programs, a variety of therapies are provided, including individual therapy.
