Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse
Those struggling with addiction must overcome much more than the physical reliance upon a given substance. Since the root causes for addiction extend beyond the physical act of consuming a substance, individuals must gain a deeper understanding about the emotional factors that may have led to the development of the addiction in the first place. By incorporating individual therapy into a comprehensive treatment plan, patients are given the opportunity to discuss their addiction with a highly qualified counselor in a safe one-on-one environment. Those struggling with an addiction to morphine, prescription painkillers, or heroin often experience the following benefits by incorporating individual therapy into their treatment plan:
- Recognizing past traumatic events that may have led to the abuse of substances in the first place
- Developing new points of view relating to both the obvious as well as the possible underlying causes of substance abuse
- Creating new skills for handling negative and stressful feelings in healthy manners
- Developing the ability to handle setbacks and/or achievements during treatment
- Devising techniques for how to avoid or cope with future situations in which drug use may be available and alluring
- Formulating personal goals for both the present as well as the future
When patients are able to gain insight and understanding into their own emotions, behaviors, and feelings, they are able to lay the groundwork for futures that are substance-free. Individual therapy provides patients with the opportunity to openly discuss these topics, as well as aids these individuals in feeling a sense of support between themselves and their counselor.
Through attending individual therapy sessions, patients can benefit in the following ways:
- Increased self-confidence
- Enhanced self-esteem
- Reduced stress
- Increased self-awareness
These benefits will aid patients in moving toward stable and long-term recovery while leaving behind the overwhelming chains of addiction.
