Individual therapy is a critical component of addiction and mental health treatment.
Using techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, we help you find solutions to the core issues that drive substance use. Through one-on-one therapies delivered in-office or from the comfort of your home, we help you face and modify destructive thought patterns so you can discover an abundant, sober, and happy life.
Individual therapy is also effective in treating co-occurring mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety. These conditions feed alcohol and other drug use, making the recovery process even more complicated. We know that there is a solution, and our qualified therapists address both issues at once with dual diagnosis treatment.
Individual therapy can help you work past the issues that drive mental health issues, such as:
- Everyday stress from home, work or school
- Trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Family of origin issues
- Grief and loss
- Destructive thought patterns
- Unhealthy relationships
Through individual therapy delivered online or in-person, we help you develop the skills to stay centered no matter the circumstance. Our therapists understand the value of self-care and healthy coping skills, and we place these at the center of the patient experience. Together, we can help you discover a path to healing and restoration.
How Does Therapy Help?
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 21 million American adults struggle with a substance use disorder every year, and roughly a quarter of American adults experience mental health complications. Others need help coping with relationship troubles, the death of a loved one, loss of a job, trauma or stress.
Mental health issues are common, and you are not alone. Finding therapies tailored to your unique life experience, age, gender and profession is critical to recovery. We pride ourselves in crafting personalized treatment for our patients, making sure that all their unique concerns are addressed.
Individual therapy can improve your life by helping you:
- Understand thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to substance use
- Learn how to replace negative behaviors with healthier habits
- Identify life events or problems such as family stress, a hectic lifestyle, job loss or divorce and understand how they affect you mentally and emotionally
- Pinpoint old thought patterns and discover new ones
- Regain the sense of abundance and happiness that is lost during addiction
- Learn healthy coping skills to alleviate the pain caused by co-occurring mental health disorders
