An individual therapy program involves only the client and the therapist. We individualize this treatment according to the needs of each client. Sessions can vary in length and frequency; however, most sessions last about an hour and occur, on average, once per week. This type of treatment focuses on problems specific to the individual. Specifically, they’ll address problems they have had or those that are currently affecting their mental health. These issues contribute to unhealthy or unsafe behaviors, including substance abuse. It also deals with the thoughts and emotions of individuals that rehab has brought into focus. These include feelings of shame, stress, fear, anxiety which clients learn how to handle.
Individuals may have many to address which are crucial to the recovery process but difficult to discuss in group therapy. An individual therapy program provides a safe, judgment-free space where they can speak freely about topics that may concern or hurt their loved ones. Therapists can listen, respond and help their clients explore their concerns. Clients achieve closure, insights, and breakthroughs that can promote self-awareness. We also increase the client’s self-confidence, foster healing and resolve, and minimize the risk of relapse after rehab.
