Individual therapy is a fundamental component of every successful addiction treatment program. At Immersion Recovery Center, we have a team of licensed, experienced and compassionate therapists on staff who work closely with clients on a regular basis. Psychotherapy is utilized for a number of reasons, and can be beneficial in addressing underlying disorders in addition to substance abuse and dependence. One of the main goals of individual therapy program is helping clients identify relapse triggers, and develop healthy and effective coping and relapse prevention skills. Individual therapy sessions take place at least twice a week. Clients sit down with their assigned therapist in a one-on-one session, where individual issues are thoroughly addressed. Addiction affects everyone in different ways, and everyone will have a varying personal experience. Individual therapy allows for a more comprehensive and personalized approach to recovery.
In individual therapy sessions, clients explore the unique hurdles they face in early recovery and work through relapse triggers and psychological cravings. Individual therapy is also extremely beneficial for clients who are simultaneously struggling with a mental health condition like depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder. Individual therapy is part of our dual diagnosis treatment program (as well as our standard addiction treatment program). Two of the therapeutic methods we most commonly employ include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). CBT focuses on how thoughts, feelings and behavior are all interconnected, and DBT focuses on the development of coping skills that will help combat self-destructive behavioral patterns and severely harmful emotions.
