Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are struggling with an addiction have more challenges to work through outside of their actual physical dependence. The causes behind their addictions are not just from them actually using the drug itself, but the emotional reasons as to why they are using play a role too. It is for this reason that those who are battling an addiction must obtain individual therapy as a part of a medication-assisted treatment program.

Individual therapy is a method of care that includes regularly working one-on-one with a counselor. Doing so can be highly beneficial for an individual that is looking to achieve sobriety from substances such as heroin, prescription painkillers, and morphine. Some of these benefits can include:

  • Recognizing and addressing past trauma as it is relates to the addiction
  • Developing appropriate perspectives on both the obvious and underlying causes of addiction
  • Creating new coping skills that help defeat negative and stressful emotions
  • Working through setbacks and celebrating successes throughout treatment
  • Developing strategies geared towards helping an individual handle compromising situations where he or she might be triggered to use
  • Creating goals for both the present and the future

Uncovering new ways of understanding one’s emotions, behaviors, and feelings behind the development of an addiction can dramatically help a person create a future that is free and clear of substance abuse. Individual therapy can be an excellent means of working through these issues through discussion with a counselor who can offer unwavering support.

Not only does individual therapy result in the above listed benefits, but it has also been known to do the following:

  • Increase one’s sense of self-awareness
  • Increase self-confidence
  • Reduce stress
  • Improve self-esteem

Each of these benefits serve as a springboard to launching an individual into a truly recovered life that is free of addiction.

At Allied Health Services of Medford, we feel that individual therapy is essential for helping individuals move past their addictions to drugs such as morphine, heroin, and prescription painkillers.

Our counselors are understanding and talented, and will always check in with patients to discuss their progress, as well as concerns that they might have.

By including individual therapy into our programming, Allied Health Services of Medford is able to offer care to individuals so that they can reclaim their lives and apply the skills they have learned through us to their recovery processes.
