Why Therapy Is Important in Addiction Treatment

Mental illness is linked to drug use, alcohol abuse, opioid addiction and other substance-related issues. Peer pressure and a person’s life situation often play a role, but many people develop a substance abuse disorder because they don’t know how to manage symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, panic attacks, depression and mood swings.

types of Therapy

Individual Therapy

Individual mental health treatment options include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), medication-assisted treatment (MAT), SMART therapy and 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

Group Therapy

The best support for your substance use disorder comes from fellow clients. Therapist-led support groups encourage you to share your story, process uncomfortable emotions and discuss related issues with engaging people. Engaging with others builds confidence and self-esteem.

Family Therapy

Family therapy sessions may include parents, siblings, grandparents, children, spouses and other relatives who play important roles in your life. A counselor helps you and your family members discuss issues in a calm, civil environment. After family therapy sessions, you’ll ideally build stronger relationships with your loved ones.

Psychiatric Therapy

Your psychiatrist can treat mental health disorders with medication management. Regular meetings and follow-ups ensure safety as you take medication for mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, personality disorders or bipolar disorder. A psychiatrist could also provide the diagnosis you need for treatment.

When to Seek Therapy

Many people seek counseling at some point in their lifetimes. Sometimes, they need to discuss an issue with an objective third party. Other times, they need intense therapy to uncover the cause behind their substance use. You might need therapy and support groups if you experience any of the following:

  • You believe you have no self-worth and harshly criticize yourself.
  • You feel it’s impossible to prevent relapse.
  • Your symptoms are so severe that they interfere with your life.
  • You experience frequent conflicts with friends and family members.
  • You develop a substance use disorder.
  • Your symptoms include paranoia, hallucinations and delusions.
  • You feel like you can’t find enjoyment in anything.
  • You want to improve your emotional well-being and regain control.

Overall, if you’re considering an inpatient or outpatient program for any reason, contact Resurgence Behavioral Health to discuss your options.

Benefits of Addiction Counseling

Learn Healthy Coping Skills

You won’t need to turn to substance use when you have healthy coping skills. Clients can easily perform these tasks at home and enjoy better health, a positive outlook, goal achievement and overall feelings of well-being.

Face Past Trauma

Some repress memories to forget their trauma. Others relive their conflicts with daily flashbacks. Our treatment programs help you process the past, teaching you to identify triggers, alter your thinking patterns and accept what you can’t change.

Avoid Relapse

Common relapse risk factors include stress at home, lack of a schedule and untreated mental disorders. We provide counseling for preventing relapse and finding support if an incident triggers your substance use disorder.

FAQs About Addiction Therapy

Substance use disorders are a mental illness like depression or anxiety. When the drug addiction takes hold, you experience symptoms tied to other mental disorders, such as depression, panic attacks, fatigue, insomnia and loss of control. Addiction science reveals that, just like a mental disorder, you can’t “turn off” the substance abuse.

Substance abuse programs help reduce the emotional distress you experience while taking drugs. Therapy with a drug counselor helps you identify the source, which could be family conflict, domestic violence or chemical imbalances.

During drug addiction treatment, your therapist could diagnose you with a co-occurring disorder. Common diagnoses include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, depression and borderline personality disorder.

Counselors use various treatment options to treat your specific condition. For example, if you have toxic thought patterns, your therapist could teach cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and other treatment modalities.

Doctors can link almost any mental illness to substance use disorders. Mental health conditions damage your thinking patterns, leading to drug addiction as you search for relief. Many substance abuse clients feel traumatized, worthless and hopeless, which treatment programs aim to change.
