Some of the patients who pass through our doors may be in need of counseling in order to recover from an addiction. Luckily, we offer individual therapy in Harford County for those who need it.
The Benefits of Individual Therapy in Harford County
It can be scary to enter into counseling of any kind. Individual therapy is one-on-one, which makes it intimidating for many who are uncomfortable with such attentive treatment. However, this may be what some people need in order to stop habits of substance abuse. This type of therapy allows for much deeper examination of the individual’s problems, motivations, and the origin of the addiction.
At The Bergand Group, our experienced addiction recovery therapists use a variety of individual therapy techniques to examine and treat addiction, which includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The goal of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) individual therapy is to get the patient to recognize things that trigger their substance cravings.
There are many potential situations that trigger substance cravings. Situational triggers such as being with friends who still use drugs can cause cravings, as can environmental stimuli. Mental health conditions such as stress are also triggers that can cause cravings. Recovering addicts will inevitably be faced with some of these triggers during the course of their recovery, which is why cognitive behavioral therapy is so important.
Working together with the therapist, the patients learns how to recognize their individual triggers, as well as techniques for avoiding them and, if they cannot be avoided, how to overcome them.
