What Is Individual Psychotherapy?

Individual psychotherapy for substance use disorder is a personalized approach to addressing challenges related to addiction. In these sessions, you work closely with a counselor to explore the reasons behind your substance use, develop strategies to overcome cravings and learn healthier coping mechanisms. Our counselors provide guidance and support tailored to your specific needs, helping you set achievable goals and make positive changes in your life. Through individual counseling, you can gain insight into your addiction, build resilience, and take steps toward recovery.

Types of Individual Psychotherapy Approaches

When it comes to getting help for substance use disorder, different types of therapy can make a big difference. Here are five approaches that can help you in your journey:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

In CBT, you and your therapist work together to change how you think and act. This helps you deal with cravings and triggers for using drugs or alcohol. You’ll learn new skills to cope with stress and manage your feelings without turning to substances.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

MI is all about helping you find the motivation to change. Your therapist listens to you without judging and enables you to explore why you want to make changes in your life. Together, you’ll set goals and make plans to reach them.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT helps you learn to manage your emotions and cope with stress in healthy ways. You’ll practice mindfulness to stay present in the moment and develop skills to deal with strong emotions without turning to drugs or alcohol.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT teaches you to acknowledge your thoughts and emotions without judging them. You’ll learn to focus on what’s important to you and take steps toward living a meaningful life, even when things get tough.

By trying different therapy approaches, you can find the ones that work best for you. Remember, you’re not alone in this journey, and there are people who want to help you succeed.

Understanding the Individual Psychotherapy Process

Individual psychotherapy for substance use disorder involves a structured approach to addressing addiction and related issues. Here’s an overview of the process:


The first step is an assessment where you meet with a counselor to discuss your substance use history, triggers, and goals for treatment. This helps the counselor understand your unique situation and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Together with your counselor, you establish specific goals for therapy, such as reducing substance use, improving coping skills, or addressing underlying mental health issues.

Establishing a trusting and supportive relationship with your counselor is crucial. You should feel comfortable discussing your struggles and concerns openly, knowing that your counselor is there to help without judgment.

In individual psychotherapy sessions, you explore the factors contributing to your substance use, such as triggers, emotions, and past experiences. Through this exploration, you gain insight into your substance use behaviors and patterns.

Therapy sessions concentrate on building coping mechanisms and techniques to handle cravings, manage stress, and deal with triggers without resorting to substance use. Your counselor teaches practical techniques to help you stay on track with your recovery goals

With your counselor, you identify obstacles to recovery and work on practical solutions to overcome them. This may involve addressing underlying issues, improving communication skills, or making lifestyle changes that support sobriety.

Throughout the counseling process, your counselor monitors your progress toward your goals and adjusts the treatment plan as needed. Regular check-ins and feedback help ensure you’re on the right track with your recovery.

As you make progress toward your goals, you and your counselor reflect on your journey in therapy. This closure process allows you to celebrate achievements, acknowledge challenges, and prepare for life after therapy.

By engaging in individual psychotherapy for substance use disorder, you can gain the support, skills, and insight needed to overcome addiction and lead a healthier, more fulfilling life.
