Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are grappling with an addiction often have a tremendous amount of challenges facing them outside of their physical dependence on a substance or substances. The reason for their addiction development is not only caused by the actual act of consuming a drug, but rather a number of different emotional factors that have added to the development of the addiction. Therefore, it is extremely beneficial for those who are suffering from addiction to receive individual therapy as a part of their overall treatment plan.

Individual therapy is a treatment modality that includes working with a counselor in a private, one-on-one setting to obtain a number of benefits that can aid in the success of an individual’s recovery from addiction to substances such as morphine, prescription painkillers, or heroin. Some of the benefits that can come from individual therapy can include:

  • Determining past trauma and turmoil that has added to the substance abuse
  • Developing fresh perspectives on both the obvious and hidden causes of substance abuse
  • Creating healthy coping skills that allow patients to properly manage stress or negative emotions
  • Working through setbacks and successes throughout the treatment process
  • Developing strategies that help patients cope with trying situations where their sobriety might be threatened
  • Establishing personal goals for the present and the future

An individual can benefit greatly from understanding his or her own emotions, feelings, behaviors, and causes behind the life choices that he or she has made so that he or she can develop a future that is free from substance abuse. Individual therapy is an excellent space for this form of discussion, as it allows patients to feel supported by their counselors.

In addition to the above listed benefits, those who obtain individual therapy as a part of their medication-assisted treatment are more likely to experience the following throughout their treatment program:

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

Each one of these benefits can provide a fresh start and solid foundation for a patient who is looking to be successful in living a life of recovery that no longer feeds off of substance abuse.
