Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are stuck in the dangerous cycle of addiction have more to defeat than just their physical dependence on one or more substances. The cause for addiction is not based solely on the actual act of consuming a substance. Instead, there are a number of emotional factors that can add to the development of an addiction. Therefore, individual therapy is viewed as one of the most beneficial forms of care for an individual who obtains treatment for an addiction.

Individual therapy is a type of treatment that includes working in a private, one-on-one setting with a therapist. Within this setting, patients will yield a number of benefits as they work on recovering from an addiction to substances like morphine, prescription painkillers, or heroin. These benefits can include:

  • Indicating past trauma that might have added to the substance abuse
  • Initiating new perspectives that pertain to both the obvious and deep rooted causes of substance abuse
  • Unfolding new skills that are healthy and can aid in coping with stress and negativity
  • Sorting through achievements and setbacks throughout the course of treatment
  • Devising strategies that help patients avoid and/or cope with situations where they might be tempted to use
  • Creating personal goals for the future and the present

For patients, being able to understand their own emotions, feelings, behaviors, and reasons behind the life choices they have made can significantly help them develop a clear view of a future that no longer includes substance abuse. Individual therapy is an excellent resource for opening up the floor for this type of conversation, and it allows patients to feel supported by their therapist.

Individual therapy not only provides the above listed benefits, but those who obtain this form of care also typically obtain these benefits too:

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

Each of these benefits can help patients throughout their recovery by allowing them to stay on track to living a life that is no longer controlled by substance abuse.

Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

At Boston Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we feel that individual therapy is a primary component to each patient’s treatment as he or she works to overcome his or her addiction to heroin, prescription painkillers, or morphine. By allowing a patient to sort through his or her recovery with a therapist by his or her side allows him or her to be treated emotionally, as well as ensure that he or she is following the guidelines his or her therapist has provided. Our understanding and kind therapists will monitor the progress of each patient to see how their recovery is coming along and address any concerns that might arise while obtaining care with us.

With the inclusion of individual therapy, we, at Boston Comprehensive Treatment Centers, are providing care that can help individuals rebuild their lives by learning the skills needed to keep their substance abuse at bay. If you or someone you care for could benefit from the treatment that we provide, please contact us today. We can help you.
