We believe in treating the whole patient to help them heal in mind, body, and spirit. An important part of this treatment approach includes individual counseling and therapy sessions. Individual therapy sessions promote self-discovery and facilitate healing, and when used as part of a comprehensive addiction therapy plan, they can be a hugely beneficial tool.

What Is Individual Therapy for Addiction Treatment?
Patients will regularly work with our mental health and substance use counselors or therapists in timeslots that are generally one hour long. These individual counseling sessions give patients the opportunity to explore their conditions, identify problematic thoughts or behavior, and learn how to heal and grow.
Our counseling centers use a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities to aid the patient in this healing process. Because some techniques may be more effective than others depending on the patient and their progress, our counselors will alter treatment as needed and use additional programming when necessary.
Individual substance use counseling sessions help patients explore their condition as well as learn to live without drugs or alcohol. Patients will work with a substance use counselor or licensed therapist in sessions that generally last about an hour. These sessions may take place several times a week depending on how often the therapist and patient agree to meet. Typically, patients will work with the same drug rehab counselor or therapist throughout their program to build trust and rapport.
Working with the patient’s care team, our experienced addiction counselors will help determine the most effective counseling methods for their patients and focus on specific issues in treatment that need to be addressed so the patient can achieve lasting recovery. Through a collaborative partnership, the recovery counselor and patient can discover and nurture ways to build a drug-free life.
What to Expect from Individual Therapy Sessions
Some general goals of addiction counseling include:
- Helping participants understand the root causes of their addiction
- Identifying and addressing mental health conditions
- Improving mental and emotional health
- Identifying harmful thoughts, feelings, and emotions as well as teaching participants how to replace them with more positive ones
- Repairing relationships that were broken or damaged by addiction
- Identifying and removing negative relationships
- Identifying and removing triggers
- Teaching dynamic sober livings skills that are adapted to the patient’s life
- Teaching participants important habits of self-care
Along with individual counseling services, our treatment plans also include group work with other patients battling similar struggles so that patients can build their community of support and understand that they are not alone. Couple and family sessions are also available as add-on programming for several treatment plans to help families progress forward and heal together. Because not everyone is able to come to our facilities for care, we also offer online counseling services and programming for more flexible treatment plans.
Counseling is just one of many services we offer to help our patients live out their best futures. To learn more about our different programming and how we may be able to help you or a loved one, contact us today.
