Individual therapy is often used to encourage patients that are struggling with drug misuse to look at their behavior and acknowledge how things impact them that cause them to crave and go on to use substances. By engaging in individual therapy in Timonium, patients can begin to examine the causes of their substance abuse, and take appropriate steps to address them.
How Individual Therapy Can Help
One of the most common situational triggers that can result in an individual misusing substances is being with friends or family members who use drugs. Mental health conditions, such as stress or depression can also be problematic for recovering users, as they may abuse drugs to help them deal with their symptoms.
It’s inevitable that at some point during the recovery process, people will be exposed to these triggers, and that’s why individual therapy is a crucial part of the recovery process. With the help of a therapist, individuals can develop techniques to recognize and avoid triggers, and if they’re unavoidable, how to overcome them.
The Benefits of Individual Therapy
Group therapy is an extremely effective means of addressing issues and overcoming them in a safe, comfortable environment. However, it’s not right for everybody. Some people would would benefit more from individual therapy, but why?
- The one-on-one attention from the therapist allows a deeper understanding of the client’s specific problems and can help them to develop a unique approach that helps them resolve them.
- The treatment received can be much more intense when in individual therapy as opposed to group therapy. As the focus is entirely on you, you don’t have to accommodate the needs of others in your situation.
- The whole process can be tailored to the individual’s requirements. If the client can handle an intensive intervention, it can be sped up. If clients need time to adjust to the recovery process, the therapy can be adjusted to reflect this. This is something that’s simply not possible in group therapy.
