Individual Therapy

Individual therapy for addiction in Pennsylvania

Suffering from addiction not only harms you but it can harm everyone around you, including your family, friends, and employers. We understand. Many of us have been there ourselves. BriteLife was founded and is led by people who understand what clients and their families are experiencing. We'll provide an individualized addiction treatment program that brings you out of the lonely world of addiction and into the team sport of recovery.

BriteLife Recovery Pennsylvania offers a full continuum of addiction care to treat every phase of the recovery process. Some think that addiction recovery is just about getting detoxed from alcohol or drugs. However, the truth is that full recovery is a journey that includes many different phases, therapies, and behavior changes. Several forms of therapy happen throughout the recovery process to help clients to curb their cravings, prevent relapses, and maintain a clean and sober lifestyle. Individual treatment plans are created to help clients meet the goals that they set for themselves. One-on-one therapy is one of the most recognizable and essential elements of traditional addiction treatment. It is also universally integrated with most other treatment modalities. BriteLife provides 2-3 individual therapy sessions per week during inpatient care. 

One-On-One Therapy for addiction in hanover

Recovery from substance use disorder is so much more than detoxification. While this preliminary phase focuses on the physical withdrawal and cravings, talk therapy addresses the behavioral aspects of recovery. Also, since substances are repetitively used to self-medicate, there are typically a lot of feelings and emotions to explore. One-on-one therapy helps clients address their behavioral health problems.

Individual therapy is also essential to help avoid relapse. There are so many social settings or psychological problems that can play a role in causing a relapse. Individual therapy can deal with many of these addiction triggers, including:

  • Situational anxiety.
    Work, school, family, and other events can lead someone to use. Individual therapy helps discover more positive ways of handling stress.

  • People, places, and things.
    Returning to places where you used to drink, or use can trigger old behaviors. These include going to bars, parties or other haunts that relate the impulse to drink or drug. One-on-one therapy helps clients discover coping mechanisms to deal with these instances.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Individual Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy shows clients how to distinguish their feelings and thoughts that take place when cravings pop-up. CBT also includes accepting certain social settings and patterns that can lead to relapse. Therapists work in collaboration with each client to help them overcome negative behaviors and thought patterns. At the same time, clients learn how to substitute destructive thinking with optimistic thinking. The healthier, encouraging beliefs support the client so they don’t succumb to relapse.
CBT uses time-tested methods to help people get through dangerous craving thoughts. Our therapists trained in CBT can help clients with recovery tools that support long-term sobriety.
