Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are grappling with an opioid addiction often face more challenges outside of their actual use of a given substance. The actual causes of addiction are not just a result of the physical act of using, but rather a number of underlying emotional issues that have likely led to the development of the addiction as well. Because of this, individual therapy can be highly beneficial when included in a treatment plan for an individual who is receiving medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction.

Individual therapy is a method of treatment that requires a patient and a counselor to work in a one-on-one setting on a regular basis so that the patient can work towards recovering from his or her addiction to opioids. The benefits of patients receiving individual therapy include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Recognizing past trauma or turmoil that could have led to the addiction itself
  • Developing new perspectives geared towards the underlying causes of addiction
  • Creating healthy coping skills that help alleviate stress and negative emotions
  • Working through obstacles and celebrating successes throughout treatment
  • Devising strategies to help avoid situations where an individual’s sobriety might be challenged
  • Establishing personal goals for the future and the present

Learning to understand one’s feelings, behaviors, emotions, and reasons behind one’s choices can dramatically aid in helping an individual develop a clear perspective of his or her happy and drug-free future. Individual therapy is an excellent means of care that opens up the floor for these types of discussions, as well as one that offers a place for an individual to feel supported by his or her counselor.

In addition to the above listed benefits, individuals who obtain individual therapy can also experience the following during treatment:

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

These benefits can help lay the foundation for an individual to continue to live successfully in recovery and work towards a life that no longer includes the chains of addiction.

Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

At Southeastern Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we feel that individual therapy is an essential element when it comes to providing treatment to individuals who are attempting to overcome addictions to substances such as morphine, heroin, and prescription painkillers. Affording individuals the opportunity to work through their recovery alongside a counselor not only helps them emotionally, but also keeps them following the recommendations provided to them throughout their treatment. Our understanding and talented counselors work tirelessly to continually check in with patients regarding the status of their progress in treatment and are there to help answer any questions or address any concerns that should arise.

When individual therapy is paired with the treatment that we offer, we at Southeastern Pennsylvania Comprehensive Treatment Centers are able to provide care that can help individuals get their lives back on track, as well as help them obtain skills needed to live flourishing and productive lives.
