It is important in substance abuse treatment that the individual attempting to get sober feels comfortable in their therapy. If they don’t then they will more than likely not divulge information that is pertinent to their healing process. For some people, this means that they may need more individualized treatment options, as they do not feel comfortable sharing in a group setting, while others will flourish among a group of their peers. Neither of these options represents a right or wrong way to recover from addiction issues, but rather they simply just reflect the personality of the individual and what they need in order to finally overcome their addiction.
At Second Chance Counseling we understand that each of our clients will come to us with their own individual needs and in an attempt to ensure that every client gets the help they desire we offer a wider variety of services. One such service that we offer is our Individual Counseling, which offers the same level of care that our traditional intensive outpatient programs offers, with the only difference being that it is a one to one basis. In Individual Counseling, our clients meet directly with their therapist so that they can discuss traumas from their past or situations that they are currently going through, in an attempt to overcome them and learn how to live a sober life.
The focus of the Individual Counseling is ultimately to allow our clients to lead the sober life they have always wanted, but we do this through a personalized approach, touching on any and all subjects that the client needs to discuss.
What is Individual Counseling?
When most people think of intensive outpatient they think of going to a series of group therapy sessions a few times a week in order to learn how to cope with their sober life. They imagine the chairs set up in a circle and everyone taking turns sharing and they wouldn’t be far off from the reality of what intensive outpatient is. Yet for some people, this setting is not conducive for their recovery, and that is where our Individual Counseling comes in.
At our Individual Counseling, clients are able to meet with their therapist individually a few times a week in order to get the counseling and support they need during their early recovery. This form of treatment differs from traditional therapy in that it focuses mainly on overcoming substance abuse issues and it normally is once or more a week.
Individualized Treatment Plans
Made Just For You
The type of person who can benefit from our Individual Counseling is anyone who may not feel comfortable just yet sharing in a large group of people. There are any number of reasons why a person would feel this way, and when taking into account that addiction is an isolating illness it makes senses that some people will not yet feel ready to share their story in front of others.
Imagine if you will, living with an illness that requires you to hide away a large portion of your life. You constantly have to be on guard that the secret of your addiction will be exposed and so, in essence, the addict has to live a double life. They present one face to the world and in secret, they suffer from an obsession of the mind that causes them to think and act in ways that are counterintuitive to their happiness and survival. Leading this sort of life causes many individuals to feel a great deal of shame in regards to their past and their present and so they may not feel comfortable sharing with a group all of the things they have experienced.
At our Individual Counseling, we understand this and that is why we offer a service that allows for personalized and individual care, without allowing the quality of treatment to suffer. Each of our therapists are well equipped to walk with you through any struggles you may face and with their intimate understanding of addiction, they will be able to help you navigate the murky waters of early recovery.
