What Are The Benefits of Individualized Addiction Counseling?
Addiction treatment experts strongly recommend an individualized approach when deciding on treatment options. A few of the benefits include:
- Identifying/addressing any physical conditions or diseases that may occur alongside a case of addiction
- Treating all types of addiction: physical, mental (co-occurring), social, and spiritual
- Creates multiple therapy options that work in different manners
- Allows anybody access to some form of addiction therapy that may work for them
- Assesses any psychological problems that contribute to addiction and works to eliminate them
In addition to these benefits, individualized addiction counseling can also lower the chances of relapsing. Research shows that about 40-60% of people relapse, so when a treatment plan is tailored specifically for the clients needs and concerns, they will be better equipped to navigate the road to recovery.
Types of Treatment Plans
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), for people struggling with substance abuse problems, is a way to achieve self-acceptance while simultaneously accepting the need for change. There are four basic aspects to DBT: mindfulness, interpersonal relations, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.
Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative and goal-oriented treatment practice for strengthening motivation and commitment to a particular goal (recovery). MI pulls from various therapeutic styles and theories such as humanistic therapy, cognitive dissonance theory, therapeutic relationship building, stages of change models, and positive psychology. Together, the client and therapist use reasons for change directed by the patient to address ambivalence and turn the desired goal into reality.
Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) teaches family and friends effective strategies for helping their loved one throughout the treatment process. CRAFT works to affect the loved one’s behavior by changing the way the family interacts with him or her.
Seeking Safety – Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy that helps clients attain safety from trauma (including PTSD) and substance abuse by emphasizing coping skills, grounding techniques and education.
Family Therapy for Substance Abuse: Families are also deeply affected when their loved ones have addiction problems. They play an important role in the treatment of substance abuse for their loved one. Family therapy is offered to help members of the family heal and recover as a group.
