Individual Therapy Program

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating addiction or mental health disorders that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program that includes family therapy and individual therapy, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

What is an Individual Therapy Program?

For people in addiction treatment, whether they’re in a residential treatment center or in an outpatient program, individual therapy (psychotherapy) allows an individual to talk about their life challenges. It focuses on current events or abuse and other traumatic events and teaches new ways and tools for coping with stress and handling difficult decisions. It’s a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Along with holistic approaches to healing, individual therapy programs can be conducted in a comfortable setting. Therapists can help people transform their negative reactions to stressful situations into positive responses, which includes:
In an individual program, you can feel confident talking to a trained therapist about your challenges, especially when it comes to addiction or mental health disorders that interrupt your life.

Benefits of Individual Therapy Programs

Therapy can help treat every aspect of a person’s mental, physical, emotional, and behavioral issues. Concerns that are addressed and can benefit from individual therapy include:
Once you complete a therapy program, you should have the tools and resources necessary to manage your life, without the use of substances or other harmful addictions. It can also help with mental health disorders so that you can function daily with joy and pleasure.

What to Expect in Individual Therapy

Usually, in a recovery treatment facility, a therapist will sit down and first go through a person’s history, gathering pertinent information. They talk to the person about their past physical, emotional, and mental health. It can take a few sessions for a therapist to reach a good understanding of a person’s situation and what brought them to therapy. They then address concerns and decide the best course of action.

The person in therapy can also review whether they feel comfortable with that particular therapist and want to continue. It’s vital to find a therapist you feel comfortable with, and since there are several in a recovery treatment center, you likely will find one you can work with. At first, it may be intimidating or hard to speak with someone about yourself. Sessions may bring up intense emotions about past experiences or present challenges. It’s entirely reasonable to become angry or sad during treatment. However, therapists can support you and help you feel safe as you process uncomfortable or painful memories.

A therapist might have you do “homework” assignments to build on topics discussed in therapy, and it’s normal to ask questions at any point during therapy. As time passes, therapy can help people become more positive and happy.

How Psychotherapy Works

There are several forms of therapy in addiction and mental health disorder recovery. Some types work better for different situations or disorders. It’s common for therapists to combine therapies to have the maximum effect. The goal of psychotherapy is replacing harmful thoughts and behaviors with healthy thoughts and behaviors, which foster positivity and productivity.The difference between individual therapy and psychotherapy is that the former focuses on the present while the latter focuses on the past. Some of these therapy programs include:
The therapist would decide which of these therapy programs would best suit the individual and have the best outcome. Studies show that individual therapy programs are an effective way to help people in addiction recovery.
