Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are fighting against an addiction typically have more obstacles to get past outside of their physical dependence on their drug of choice. The causes behind an addiction are often not solely caused by the actual act of consumption, rather the deep-seeded, emotional issues that have led to the desire to use heavily contribute to the development of an addiction. It is because of this reason that the inclusion of individual therapy into a medication assisted treatment program can be highly beneficial for patients.

Individual therapy is a method of care that includes working with a counselor in a one-on-one setting. This type of therapy helps patients begin recovering from an addiction to opioids like heroin, prescription pain pills, or morphine. Some of the benefits of individual therapy can include:

  • Developing new perspectives regarding the potential underlying causes of addiction.
  • Addressing past issues (such as trauma) that have added to an opioid addiction.
  • Working through setbacks and successes throughout the treatment phase.
  • Creating healthy coping skills that allow patients to deal with stress or upsetting feelings.
  • Establishing individual goals for both the future and the present.
  • Forming coping strategies to help avoid risky situations where temptation might occur.
Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

Through understanding one’s own thoughts, feelings, and emotions, a patient can begin untangling the reasons behind his or her poor choices and negative behaviors that have resulted from an opioid addiction so he or she can work towards recovery. Individual therapy is a perfect medium for addressing issues such as these, as patients often experience a sense of support when working individually with a counselor.

While some benefits have already been mentioned, patients who obtain individual therapy will also likely experience the following:

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

These benefits can be utilized as building blocks for a solid recovery that includes a life free from the chains of an opioid addiction.

At Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we feel strongly that individual therapy is a critical component to helping treat patients who are attempting to get sober from an addiction to opioids like morphine, painkillers, and heroin. Encouraging processing through an addiction with the help of a counselor can allow a patient to become more emotionally secure, as well as more likely to follow the recommendations provided during treatment. Our understanding and talented counselors will check on all patients to ask how they are feeling as they move forward in their program, as well as ask if they have any concerns pertaining to their care.

In conjunction with individual therapy, we, at Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers, provide care that can assist individuals in obtaining control in their lives once again as they develop the skills that allow them to do so.
