How Does Individual Counseling Help Drug Addicts?
One-on-one therapy for substance abuse is a crucial piece of the addiction rehab program at Footprints. Individual therapy helps clients learn how to take control of their lives and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills. One-on-one counseling is also helpful for treating any dual diagnosis disorders (also known as co-occurring conditions) that may be present alongside an addiction.
What to Expect from Individual Counseling
At Footprints, we believe in a holistic approach to addiction rehab. Since no two people share the same experiences, our expert staff members work with clients during individual therapy sessions to help any mental side effects that are uncovered during the rehabilitation process. Utilizing individual therapy to treat addiction is a method that we have employed at Footprints for over 10 years, and we believe that it takes an expert staff to support our clients in this area. That’s why each client at Footprints Beachside Recovery will have a master’s level, licensed mental health counselor as an individual therapist, and meet at a minimum twice a week for individual therapy for substance abuse.

Treating Dual Diagnosis Disorders through Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is also beneficial in treating addiction as well as mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder, that often come along with addiction. Left untreated, dual diagnosis disorders can often lead to issues after a client has left a rehab center, and in some cases, can contribute to relapse. Psychotherapy can also help with several of life’s stresses and conflicts that can present themselves during the course of a rehabilitation program.
