Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Those who are suffering from an addiction to opioids typically have more to work through than just their physical dependence on one or more substances. Addiction does not just develop from the physical act of consuming a substance, however it is often a number of emotional factors that contribute to an addiction and its development. Therefore, it is important for individual therapy to be included into the treatment that an individual obtains for addiction.

Individual therapy is a form of treatment that includes working with a counselor in a private setting. Within this setting, an individual who is working on his or her recovery from opioids, such as morphine, heroin, or prescription pain medications, can benefit from individual attention from a professional by doing the following with his or her counselor:

  • Developing strategies for coping with trying situations where using again might become tempting
  • Creating personal goals for the present and the future
  • Establishing healthy perspectives pertaining to the obvious and hidden causes of substance abuse
  • Acknowledging trauma or turmoil from the past that has added to the development of the addiction
  • Obtaining new coping skills that help alleviate stress and negativity
  • Working through setbacks and successes that arise during treatment

For people in recovery, learning how to understand emotions, feelings, reasons, and behaviors surrounding life choices can dramatically help to develop a future that is free of substance abuse and filled with good health. Individual therapy is an excellent means of holding discussions such as these, as patients can obtain invaluable support from his or her counselor.

In addition to the above listed benefits of individual therapy, those who obtain this treatment modality can also experience the following:

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

These benefits can allow a patient to yield tremendous success in is or her recovery, as well as help him or her finally put an end to the dangerous patterns of abuse that have led to addiction.
