Addiction doesn’t develop in a vacuum—after all, no one starts drinking or taking drugs with the goal of becoming addicted. Factors like past trauma, underlying mental illness, and chronic stress contribute to an unhealthy pattern of substance abuse. Individual therapy provides an opportunity to unpack and overcome these issues. After a series of one-on-one sessions with a licensed counselor, you will have laid the groundwork for lasting sobriety.
Individual Therapy Program
Finding recovery is about more than just abstaining from drugs or alcohol. It’s a new approach to the way you think, behave, and cope with stressors. To prepare for this healthier way of life, you’ll need to address the mental and emotional aspects of your substance use disorder.
In individual therapy, you meet one-on-one with a counselor. In each session, you’ll build trust, discuss deeply buried issues, and examine the problems that catalyzed your addiction in the first place. You’ll also build an arsenal of tools for fighting relapse in all stages of recovery. Finally, your therapist will help you to set short- and long-term goals for your future.
