Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Overcoming an addiction requires more than simply giving up a substance or substances. Since the causes of addiction go beyond simply using the drug, successful recovery requires an understanding of the root causes of substance abuse in the first place, as well as gaining support for the emotional components of addiction. Individual therapy is an extremely beneficial tool utilized within medication assisted treatment programs to help individuals achieve long-term recovery.

Individual therapy is a therapeutic method that involves a qualified counselor administering therapy in a one-on-one setting. By allowing patients the opportunity to openly speak with a counselor in a one-on-one setting, patients are able to work on recovering from an addiction to heroin, prescription medications, or morphine. Additional benefits of individual therapy also include the following:

  • Recognizing traumatic events in the past that may have contributed to the abuse of substances
  • Developing new points of view regarding the noticeable and potential underlying causes of substance abuse/addiction
  • Forming new, healthy ways to handle stress or adverse emotions
  • Handling setbacks and/or successes throughout the course of treatment
  • Creating plans for avoiding or handling situations in which drug use might be appealing
  • Establishing personal goals for the present and future

By gaining insight into one’s own emotions, feelings, actions, and reasoning behind choices that were made, patients are able to prepare for an opioid-free future. Individual therapy provides patients with the opportunity to openly discuss their feelings while obtaining the one-on-one support of a qualified counselor.

Individual therapy can also provides patients with the following throughout the therapeutic process:

  • Reduction of stress
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Increase in self-confidence
  • An increased sense of self-awareness

These beneficial building blocks will aid individuals as they move forward towards recovery.
