Proudly serving Utah, our Methadone clinics provide adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from heroin, oxycodone, Percocet, and other opiates.

Benefits of Individual Therapy

Benefits of Individual Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Long-term recovery requires treatment for more than the physical dependency that one has developed on a substance. Individuals must address and treat the emotional and physical components of their addiction in order to progress towards a future that does not include addiction. Discovery House Comprehensive Treatment Centers of Utah believe that by taking a comprehensive approach to the care offered, patients will be given the education, support, and guidance that is necessary to successfully overcome a dependency upon opioids. The medications that we prescribed provide patients with relief from the physical discomforts associated with withdrawal. In order to prepare for a future that is substance-free, individuals must understand what led them to abuse opioids in the first place. Through the use of individual counseling, patients are given the opportunity to navigate through their behaviors and emotions in a safe and compassionate environment. In addition, the following benefits are directly linked to the use of individual counseling at Discovery House Comprehensive Treatment Centers of Utah:

  • Recognizing past trauma or abuse that may have played a role in the development of opioid abuse in the first place
  • Creating new points of view in relation to the obvious and potential underlying causes of addiction
  • Developing new and healthy ways to handle stressful situations and emotions
  • Managing setbacks and/or achievements during the course of treatment in an appropriate manner
  • Establishing new techniques for handling situations in which opioids may be available
  • Forming new personal goals

Once patients are able to understand the root causes of their addiction, preparing for a future without the compulsion to abuse opioids can become a reality. Individual counseling provides patients with a safe and supportive environment where they can openly navigate their emotions and behaviors.

Individuals who take part in individual counseling have reported experiencing the following as they progress in their treatment:

  • Increased levels of self-confidence
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Lower levels of stress
  • An increased sense of self-awareness

When given the opportunity to openly discuss an array of topics with one of our trained counselors, patients are able to make large strides towards recovery. Individual counseling sessions also provide patients with the opportunity to discuss and work through any issues or questions that may arise during the course of treatment.

If you or someone you care for is struggling with a dependency to opioids, please contact Discovery House Comprehensive Treatment Centers of Utah today. We are here to assist you in safely and effectively breaking the cycle of addiction through a comprehensive treatment approach in order to enjoy the happy, healthy, and substance-free life that you deserve to be living.
