Individual Therapy for Addiction in Kennesaw
Customized Treatment Focused on Your Unique Needs
Individual therapy is one of the most helpful tools for addiction treatment. In therapy, you can address addiction and co-occurring mental health concerns. Individual therapy gives you a place to confidentially discuss your emotions with a licensed professional. Through therapy, you can build communication skills, create healthy coping mechanisms, and learn more about yourself.
Lifelong recovery is our goal for patients, and in achieving this, individual therapy is a must. Our therapists go beyond the base problem of addiction to ensure patients can healthily deal with issues long after they complete treatment.
What Does Individual Therapy Involve?
At North Georgia Recovery Center, we tailor all of our programs to the needs of each patient. Although individual therapy is a helpful tool for anyone who is struggling with addiction, the details of therapy methods can vary widely between patients.
Individual therapy sessions will mostly involve talk therapy. Your therapist may also ask you to participate in exercises and complete assignments when you are not in a session, so you can continue to focus on the principles you are exploring in therapy at all times. The types of methods your therapist uses will depend on your specific needs and goals for completing therapy.
During your individual therapy sessions, we may utilize methods such as:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Motivational incentives
- Thought exercises
- Keeping a journal
Benefits of Individual Therapy
Individual therapy is an essential element of addiction treatment because it is highly beneficial and effective in addressing addiction and related issues. In individual therapy, you can directly work through your addiction issues with the help of a licensed therapist in our top-notch facility.
The details of treatment vary, and the results often do as well. Your goals for completing therapy can factor into shaping the outcome, and you may also create new goals for yourself during the course of your treatment. During the process of completing individual therapy, you may begin to notice benefits such as effective communication skills, the development of healthy coping mechanisms, recognition and avoidance of triggers, improved relationship skills, and other advancements of your overall mental wellbeing.
Some benefits of individual therapy that are not specifically related to treatment include:
- Confidentiality and privacy of the session format
- One-on-one attention and feedback from the therapist
- In-depth analysis
- Flexible pace and schedule
These elements often make individual therapy more convenient than other forms of therapy, in addition to the specialized and attentive focus of the treatment.
