Proudly serving the Wichita community, our Methadone clinic provides 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

Those who are faced with the struggle of addiction often have more to defeat than just their physical dependence on one or more substances. The cause of addiction development is not just found in the actual act of consuming the drug. Instead, it is often found in the many emotional factors that add to the complexity of the addiction as a whole. Therefore, it is recommended that individual therapy be included into a patient’s treatment plan when obtaining help for an opioid addiction.

Individual therapy is a treatment modality that includes working with a counselor in a one-on-one, private setting so that a patient can focus on his or her recovery from substances like morphine, prescription painkillers, and heroin. This form of treatment can help patients do the following, which are beneficial to the recovery process:

  • Recognize past trauma and emotional turmoil that might have led to the abuse of opioids
  • Establish healthy perspectives pertaining to the obvious and hidden causes of addiction
  • Create new coping skills that help patients better manage stress and negativity
  • Work through setbacks and/or successes throughout treatment
  • Develop strategies that help patients avoid situations where they might be tempted to use
  • Make personal goals for the present and the future

Being able to better understand one’s own feelings, emotions, and behaviors, as well as the reasons behind the choices they have made in life, can dramatically help a patient develop a future that is free from drug abuse. Individual therapy is an excellent space for this type of discussion to be had, as it allows patients to feel truly supported by his or her counselor.

Building a Foundation

Building a Foundation for Opioid Abuse Recovery

Not only is individual therapy helpful by producing the above listed benefits, but those who obtain this form of treatment are also likely to experience the following:

  • Improved self-esteem
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Increased sense of self-awareness
  • Reduced stress

These benefits can be helpful in establishing a solid foundation to keep recovery going so that the dangerous cycle of substance abuse can end.

At Wichita Comprehensive Treatment Center, we feel that individual therapy is a primary component to the treatment that we provide for individuals who desire to defeat their addictions to opioids such as morphine, heroin, and prescription medications. Helping individuals work through their recovery with a counselor in a therapeutic setting can not only help them emotionally, but also in ways that help ensure that these individuals are following the guidelines of their medication assisted treatment. Our dedicated and skilled counselors can consistently follow up with patients to see how their progress is going, as well as discuss any possible concerns that might develop while obtaining treatment.

With individual therapy included into the treatment we provide, we, at Wichita Comprehensive Treatment Center, offer that can help individuals turn their lives around for the better so they can obtain happiness and good health.
