Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are up against an addiction have much more to overcome than just their physical dependency on one or more substances. An individual that develops an addiction does not just do so because he or she chooses to physically consume drugs. Instead, an addiction usually develops in response to a number of underlying emotional factors. Therefore, the implementation of individual therapy in a comprehensive treatment program can be highly beneficial for individuals looking to achieve sobriety.

Individual therapy is a treatment methods that includes working one-on-one with a counselor. There are numerous benefits that can come from this partnership, including allowing an individual the chance to work on his or her recovery from opioids such as heroin, prescription painkillers, or morphine. Additional benefits can also include:

  • Determining past trauma and connecting the ways in which it has contributed to the addiction
  • Developing perspectives that are related to underlying causes of addiction
  • Forming healthy coping skills to better manage stressful and upsetting emotions
  • Establishing ways to celebrate successes and work through setbacks throughout treatment
  • Developing attainable goals for the present and the future
  • Creating strategies that will help individuals avoid tempting situations where they may be tempted to abuse substances

Individuals are better suited to live a positive, drug-free life when they are able to understand the emotional and behavioral issues behind their addiction. Individual therapy is an excellent means of care for talking about these issues, as doing so can help an individual feel supported by his or her counselor.

The benefits of individual therapy do not stop there. Many individuals who receive partake in individual therapy sessions also report the following:

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

Each of these benefits can help an individual create a foundation that can allow him or her to obtain a life free from the constraints, troubles, and stress that addiction can cause.
