Individual Counseling Offered

Individual counseling or psychotherapy is a cornerstone of drug treatment. After a person enters rehab, they undergo medically-supervised detox – an essential, often challenging first step on the road to recovery. Detox only addresses the physical aspects of addiction, which has a powerful psychological basis involving complex issues. Individual therapy sessions are an effective method for investigating the underlying causes of addiction. A client works one-on-one with his or her therapist to uncover repressed thoughts, feelings and anxieties that likely contributed to drug abuse. One’s past history of drug addiction, current recovery and future are addressed.

The Individual Counseling Model

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, individual counseling tackles both the symptoms and root causes of substance abuse and serves as a monitor of the ongoing recovery process. During individual counseling sessions, the addiction counselor works with a client on the following elements:

Acceptance: Helps the recovering addict admit he or she suffers from substance addiction, a chronic disease.

Recognition: Points out signs and symptoms of addiction relevant to the individual’s unique experiences. Helps identify situations in which drugs were used as a crutch to deal with life’s problems and understand why drugs are not the solution.

Life skills: Helps the client develop new, more effective problem-solving strategies. Encourages the client to improve self-esteem by practicing newly acquired coping and problem-solving skills at home and in the community.

Cravings management: Teaches the addict how to recognize and prevent compulsions to use drugs.

Motivation: Encourages and motivates the client to achieve and sustain abstinence.

Vigilance: Monitors and encourages abstinence by using objective measures, such as urinalysis and Breathalyzer® tests.

Accountability: Holds the chemically addicted person accountable, discussing episodes of substance use and strongly discouraging further use.

Prevention: Helps the recovering addict recognize and change problematic attitudes and behaviors that may lead to relapse.

Commitment: Introduces the recovering addict to the 12-step philosophy and strongly encourages participation in organized support groups. Encourages developing and following a recovery plan as a lifelong process.

Every person is unique, therefore the content of discussion is largely dictated by the client. Throughout the course of treatment, an effort is made to effectively address an individual’s needs, while incorporating the commonality of many addiction and recovery issues.
