The Model of Individual Substance Abuse Counseling
According to NIDA, individual addiction counseling tackles the symptoms and the major causes of addiction. One-on-one therapy sessions also help to foster the recovery process. During our Boynton Beach individual counseling sessions, our therapists use the following solution-focused approaches:
- We help our patients accept that he or she suffers from an addiction to drugs or alcohol. This helps in overcoming feelings of denial that are often associated with substance abuse.
- We teach our patients strategies that help in making healthy decisions at crucial times.
- We encourage all recovering patients to abstain from substance abuse. This can be achieved through various life-affirming techniques.
- Our counselors work with each patient to create a long-lasting recovery and relapse prevention plan.
Benefits of Our Boynton Beach Individual Addiction Counseling Program
Recreate Life Counseling’s individual addiction counseling in Boynton Beach, Florida, helps addicts in understanding the underlying causes of their substance abuse. Through the help of our highly trained counselors, patients will be able to figure out why they’ve picked up a mood-or-mind altering substance in the first place. Our Boynton Beach drug counseling program allows clients to feel comfortable talking about personal challenges and focusing on your individual needs.
For individual counseling sessions to be successful, the recovering addict or alcoholic must be willing to remain sober regardless of the journey ahead. Often times, our clients must be ready to make sacrifices such as losing some friends, changing places where you go to “relax” as well as forming new hobbies. A recovering addict must do all it takes to live a healthy lifestyle, and that’s what each client learns during the process of our individual addiction counseling program.
