Addiction is a debilitating issue to manage on your own, it affects every aspect of the person affected and the people around them. Individual therapy helps an enormous amount. Not only to help identify the specific issue you are facing but to provide guided solutions to your specific situation. With the help of a therapist, you will learn coping mechanisms that will allow you to manage addiction.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was someone who could go through this journey with you? Someone who would understand what you are going through? That is where our therapists come in. They are here for you.
At Annandale Behavioral Health, we offer many different types of treatment and therapies, including individual therapy for addiction and specific approaches to gain insight to help manage and resolve issues that may be contributing to your addiction. The clinical team at our private wellness center in Los Angeles has the experience helping people just like you get their lives back on track with these therapeutic sessions and approaches.
How Individual Therapy Works
During treatment you will meet with a therapist for private counseling. This counseling is between the individual and the therapist but in addition we also provide family counseling. This is up to the individual but it’s a great opportunity to educate the family on the true nature of addiction and the struggle it is for many to remain free from drugs and alcohol. It’s also an opportunity to mend relationships and incorporate family into your changing lifestyle.
Addiction is complex, and many factors are often at play. Therefore, we take a comprehensive approach in our biopsychosocial assessment, in order to get a clear understanding of the needs from a clinical perspective.
Questions you will get asked include those related to lifestyle, childhood, trauma, work environment and family background. From there, you will receive an individualized treatment plan that is catered to your own unique needs.
Our clinical work is always evolving and we understand that not everyone on their first encounter is comfortable sharing some of their most vulnerable experiences, this is why individual counseling happens several times a week.
These circumstances will differ from person to person, but one of the aspects that is most helpful in therapy is being able to discuss matters that are unique to the situation and the specific person with our therapist, Doctors, nurses and other clinical staff guiding the process.
Determining the Root Cause
During one on one individual therapy sessions, clients will be allowed to explore all the emotional aspects of addiction. This means, in part, you learn how your emotions and thought patterns affect behaviors related to substance use.
When these topics are addressed during treatment, you get a better idea of why you started misusing substances in the first place.
These individual therapy sessions provide impactful methods of determining the root cause of one’s issues with substance use. Through the process, you get the tools and coping skills needed for overcoming addiction.
The Goal of One on One Therapy
One goal of individual therapy is for individuals to move forward, giving them a chance to live a happy and fulfilling life without substance use. What this means varies from person to person, but it generally includes learning new coping skills, developing healthy relationships and learning to manage stress.
Individual therapy helps a person work through their emotions and find a healthier way to manage life’s challenges rather than relying on substance use. It can be very empowering, especially when paired with other therapeutic approaches such as clinically driven peer-to-peer groups and family therapy.
