Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are struggling with an addiction have much more to defeat than just their dependency on their drug of choice. The causes behind the addiction are not just limited to the physical act of consumption either. Instead, they are often attributed to a number of emotional factors that have led to the development of the addiction in the first place. Therefore, we, at Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers, feel that individual therapy must be included into the treatment that a patient obtains for his or her addiction.

Individual therapy is a form of treatment that includes working in a private setting with a counselor who can provide one-on-one care for the patient who is attempting to recover from an addiction to substances like morphine, heroin, or prescription painkillers. There are a number of benefits to individual therapy, such as:

  • Identifying trauma from the past that might have added to the substance abuse
  • Creating healthy perspectives regarding both the hidden and obvious causes of the substance abuse
  • Establishing effective skills that encourage coping with stress or negativity
  • Working through achievements and setbacks throughout treatment
  • Developing strategies that help patients avoid compromising situations where use might be tempting
  • Forming personal goals for the present and the future

For these individuals, it is imperative to understand their feelings, behaviors, emotions, and reasons behind the life choices they have made so that they can work on developing a future that is free from substance abuse. Individual therapy is an essential environment for this form of discussion, as it allows a patient to feel supported by his or her counselor.

In addition to the many benefits listed above, those who obtain individual therapy will also likely experience the following benefits, too:

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

These benefits can be highly effective in allowing men and women to continually move towards a life of recovery that no longer includes the dangerous pattern of addiction.

Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

At Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we feel it necessary to involve individual therapy into a treatment plan that will allow them to overcome their addiction to morphine, heroin, or prescription painkillers. Encouraging patients to work through their recovery with a counselor can help them emotionally while also helping to ensure that they are following the treatment recommendations provided to them. Our dedicated and understanding counselors monitor patients’ progress in their treatment and address any issues that develop while obtaining care.

With individual therapy included into the treatment that we provide, we, at Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers, offer care that helps patients obtain skills needed to develop a life filled with success as opposed to substance abuse. If you or someone you care for needs help, please contact us today. We are here to help.
