Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individuals who are struggling with an addiction frequently have to overcome additional challenges outside of their dependency. The causes of their addictions are not just due to the actual use of the substance, rather the numerous emotional issues that encourage the development of an addiction. In response to this, individual therapy is recommended to be included in the overall treatment plan for those obtaining treatment for addiction.

Individual therapy is highly beneficial to an individual that is working on his or her recovery. This type of therapy includes working with a counselor on a regular, one-on-one basis to overcome an addiction to substances such as morphine, heroin, or prescription pain pills. The many benefits of individual therapy include:

  • Recognizing and addressing trauma from the past that is related to addiction development
  • Developing perspective and insight into the underlying causes of addiction and abuse
  • Establishing healthy coping skills that decrease stress or negative emotions
  • Working through challenges and successes during treatment
  • Creating strategies that help an individual cope with and avoid situations where they might be tempted to use opioids
  • Developing personal goals for an individual’s present and future

For individuals looking to be successful in recovery, learning how to understand his or her behaviors, emotions, feelings, and life choices can aid him or her in establishing a future that is free of substance abuse. One of the best, most effective methods of achieving that is through individual therapy, where individuals can have conversations and their counselors can offer support and encouragement.

Additionally, those who obtain individual therapy can also benefit from the following:

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

Each of these benefits can help provide a solid foundation for an individual who is working towards creating a recovered life for him or herself that is not riddled with addiction.
