Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are struggling with an addiction to opioids must overcome more than the physical reliance upon their substance of choice. Since the causes of addiction extend beyond the simple act of consuming an opioid, individuals must obtain support and treatment for the underlying contributors that likely aided in the development of an addiction in the first place. Because of this, those struggling with an opioid addiction must receive treatment that utilizes therapeutic interventions to aid in their recovery. By taking part in individual therapy, patients are able to work with a counselor in a one-on-one setting in order to work toward recovering from an addiction to opioids such as prescription medications, morphine, or heroin. The benefits of individual therapy can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pinpointing past traumatic events that may have caused individuals to turn to substances in the first place
  • Developing new points of view relating to both the obvious and underlying causes of addiction
  • Creating new skills for coping with stress that does not involve the use of opioids or other substances
  • Handling both setbacks and achievements appropriately during the course of treatment
  • Devising new plans for avoiding and/or handling situations in which drug use may be tempting
  • Developing new personal goals for both the present and future

By gaining a deeper understanding of the emotions and behaviors that may have led one to turn to substances in the first place, patients are able to gain the information and support necessary in order to move forward towards a substance-free future. In addition, patients who take part in individual therapy will most likely experiencing the following throughout their therapeutic journey:

  • An increased sense of self-assurance
  • An improvement in their self-worth
  • A reduction in their stress levels
  • Improved self-confidence

The benefits achieved through individual therapy can provide patients with the positive building blocks that are necessary to break free from the chains of addiction.
