Recovery from addiction doesn’t involve only detoxifying from the substance. Although an important step in substance use treatment, detoxification is only the first of many steps. Individual therapy is essential to effective addiction treatment and can be especially helpful for those who have a dual diagnosis, such as addiction that occurs alongside depression or anxiety.
The goal of individual counseling at Newsong Recovery is to address a resident’s motivation to change, provide incentives for abstinence, build skills to resist use, replace using activities with constructive and rewarding activities, improve problem-solving skills, and facilitate better interpersonal relationships.
Counseling isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Different approaches are more appropriate and effective for different people, depending on their age, type of addiction, and the factors that contributed to their addiction. Common therapies used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Cognitive behavioral therapy
● Dialectical behavior therapy
● The Matrix model
● Motivational enhancement therapy
● Contingency management therapy
● Maintenance therapy
To create a successful outcome, individual counseling will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s individual counseling program is closely supervised by a team of professionals with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the whole person, not just their substance use.
At Newsong Recovery, your residential treatment will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective individual counseling services based on your substance use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems as well as your age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
Individuals progress through treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. Generally, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness. Treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
