About Addiction and Counseling
When it comes to addiction and counseling, professional therapists use a combination of techniques to tackle the complex issues individuals with addiction face. Often, those struggling don’t even understand the root or depths of their problems. Counseling helps individuals understand themselves and learn how to face their issues throughout recovery.
This is the most common form of therapy where clients work one-on-one with a therapist to discuss their thoughts, concerns, emotions, and behaviors.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a technique that counselors use in some individual counseling sessions to help clients understand their unhealthy thoughts or behaviors and replace them with healthier ones.
In group therapy sessions, multiple clients with similar circumstances share their experiences and find support in each other.
Addiction often strains familial relationships, so this therapy helps families heal and reconnect under the guidance of a counselor.
For individuals who need more than talk therapy, holistic therapy gives clients the chance to find new outlets for expressing themselves, such as through meditation or art.
These sessions often use innovative techniques to help individuals unlock past trauma so they can reprocess, understand, and cope with the events healthily.
