Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are battling an addiction to opioids must overcome more than physical dependency upon these drugs. An addiction to opioids extends beyond the physical act of consuming a substance, which is why treatment for both the psychological and physical aspects of addiction must be received if lasting recovery is to be achieved. One of the keys to helping individuals address the physical and psychological elements of opioid addiction is individual therapy.

Individual therapy provides patients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a highly qualified counselor in order to address and treat the root causes of their addiction. In addition to pinpointing the underlying causes of a patient’s addiction, individual therapy provides patients with the following benefits:

  • Identifying past events that may have contributed to their opioid abuse
  • Developing a new and healthier perspective on addictive behaviors
  • Establishing new healthy ways for handling stresses and pressures
  • Learning how to respond to both setbacks and successes in an appropriate manner
  • Learning to resist relapse, including how best to handle situations in which opioids may be available
  • Developing healthy short and long-term goals

Once a patient is given the opportunity to understand what led them to abuse opioids, preparing for a substance-free future becomes achievable. Individual therapy promotes a safe and supportive atmosphere in which men and women can openly discuss their emotions while progressing toward recovery.

Patients who utilize individual therapy within their treatment program are likely to experience the following benefits throughout the course of treatment:

  • Increased levels of self-confidence
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Reduction of stress
  • Increased sense of self-awareness
Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

The tools, education, and support received in individual therapy can help patients to establish a solid foundation upon which to build an opioid-free future.

At Shelbyville Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC), we believe that individual therapy can be a life-changing opportunity. These sessions provide patients with the opportunity to process successes and setbacks, address issues that they may be hesitant to discuss in a group setting, get answers to specific questions, and receive focused feedback from an experienced professional.
