Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Overcoming an addiction to opioids extends beyond ceasing use of a particular substance or substances. Since the causes for addictive behaviors lay deeply imbedded within an individual, he or she must work to address and treat the underlying causes of such behaviors. By incorporating individual therapy into patients’ treatment plans, those struggling with opioid addictions are able to work through the various factors that may have aided in the development of their addictions. This therapeutic method involves patients meeting with a counselor on a one-on-one basis in order to progress in his or her treatment, and can provide an individual with the following benefits:

  • Recognizing past traumatic events that may have contributed to the abuse of opioids
  • Developing new viewpoints relating to the apparent and potential underlying causes of addiction
  • Creating new and healthy skills for handling stressful situations or emotions
  • Appropriately handling setbacks and/or victories during the course of treatment
  • Developing techniques for handling situations in which drug use may be tempting
  • Forming new personal goals for both the present as well as the future

By understanding one’s own emotions and behaviors, a patient is able to gain a deeper understanding as to why he or she turned to opioid use in the first place. In doing this, a person can ultimately progress towards a future that is substance free. Individual therapy also provides patients with a safe environment in which to openly discuss their feelings and emotions with a counselor who is specially trained in the fields of addiction and recovery.

In addition, patients who take part in individual therapy will most likely experience the following throughout the therapeutic process:

  • An increase in self-confidence
  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • A reduction in stress levels
  • An increased sense of self-awareness
