Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are struggling with opioid addictions face more challenges than just their physical dependency on a given drug or drugs. The causes for addictions are not solely rooted in the act of consuming a drug; rather, there are a number of additional emotional factors that add to the development of an addiction. Therefore, we feel it is beneficial for individual therapy to be included into a patient’s treatment plan.

Individual therapy, which is a form of treatment that includes working with a counselor in a private setting on a regular basis, is beneficial for those who are looking to recover from addictions to substances like prescription pain medications or heroin. These benefits can include the following:

  • Recognizing trauma or turmoil from the past that has added to the substance abuse
  • Developing new perspectives related to the obvious and hidden causes of substance abuse development
  • Establishing healthy coping skills to help deal with stress or upsetting feelings
  • Working through setbacks and successes throughout treatment
  • Creating strategies that help individuals avoid and/or cope with challenging situations where drug use might be tempting
  • Making personal goals for the future and the present

Being able to understand one’s own emotions, feelings, behaviors, and reasons behind specific life decisions can help prepare one for a future that supports good health and freedom from drug use. Individual therapy is an excellent space for this type of work, as it allows an individual to begin feeling supported by his or her counselor.

In addition to the many benefits listed above, individuals who have obtained individual therapy are also likely to experience the following as well:

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

Each of these benefits can help build a solid foundation on which an individual can continually move towards a successful recovery that no longer includes substance abuse.
