Those who are struggling with an addiction to opioids tend to have more to conquer than just a dependence to a specific substance or substances. Addiction is not just caused by the act of consuming a substance. Rather, there are numerous emotional issues that serve as the reasons behind addiction development. Therefore, a therapeutic intervention such as individual therapy can be extremely beneficial for a patient looking to achieve recovery.

Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Individual therapy, a form of psychological care that includes working with a counselor on a one-to-one basis offers a number of benefits for a patient that is hoping to obtain sobriety from an addiction to opioids, such as morphine, heroin, or prescription medications. Some of these benefits can include the following:

  • Acknowledging any history of trauma or abuse that might have added to the development of an opioid problem
  • Developing new perspectives that relate to the likely causes of a substance abuse problem
  • Establishing new coping skills that can help alleviate stressful and negative emotions
  • Working through obstacles and celebrating successes during treatment
  • Creating strategies that help patients avoid situations that might trigger them to use
  • Developing personal goals for both the present and the future
Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

When patients learn how to cope with emotions, feelings, and behaviors that have led to an addiction to opioids, they can be aided in achieving a future that is drug-free and happy. Individual therapy is an excellent arena for this form of conversation, as it encourages an individual to experience a sense of support from his or her counselor.

In addition to the benefits mentioned before, patients who obtain individual therapy will also likely see the following results:

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

These benefits can allow a patient to begin on his or her journey towards sobriety in ways that free them from the chains of an opioid addiction.

At Maryland Comprehensive Treatment Centers, we believe that participation in individual therapy is a necessary means of treatment for those looking to recover from an opioid addiction. Allowing adults to work through their recovery with a counselor can help them emotionally, as well as help to ensure that they are following the treatment recommendations provided to them in their medication assisted treatment program. Our kind and understanding counselors will check in with patients in regards to their progress, as well as to discuss any concerns that they might have.

Through the many services we offer at Maryland Comprehensive Treatment Centers, including individual therapy, we believe that men and women can regain control over their lives and obtain skills that will allow them to live happy, successful lives.
