Perhaps the most important part of alcohol or drug rehab is group and individual counseling therapy. Addiction counseling and therapy sessions are the only real way to address the root issues behind the individual’s addiction and unless these core problems are addressed, treatment will be little more than “putting a bandage” on the problem. Using these techniques, we are able to help you control your addiction and lead a normal life.
Individual therapy sessions have the recovering addict meeting one-on-one with their counselor in a private setting. During these sessions, the therapist and patient explore the reasons why the individual uses drugs or alcohol. By identifying these triggers and how the individual responds to them, the therapist can help develop life strategies and decision making skills that help them continue on the road to recovery.
One of the most important types of counseling is group therapy. A group meeting is a gathering of fellow addicts in the program who get together under the supervision of a therapist to discuss issues relevant to their recovery. It is a chance to share stories with one another and offer suggestions as to how each addict can achieve recovery success. So moving are these meetings that many individuals report significant breakthroughs just by nature of having someone to talk to who has been through many of the same circumstances.
