Individual Therapy for Women with Substance Abuse Issues
Substance addiction affects each person differently. Although the physical consequences are mostly similar, the psychological implications can vary greatly and require a distinct approach from person to person. In some cases, individual therapy may work better than group sessions. That’s because the main focus is on the unique issues of the individual, and all subsequent treatments work towards rehabilitating the patient through one-on-one sessions.
The reasons patients, women in particular, may seek individual therapy vary:
- They might not want to discuss sensitive matters in a group environment. It is especially common for women who were the victims of sexual violence or domestic abuse to feel uncomfortable discussing these private matters in a group. Moreover, they also fear the stigma associated with substance abuse and the consequences it may have on their lives.
- The therapist might help assess that a patient’s issues are more appropriate for individual therapy, especially when they are trying to understand the starting point of the addiction.
According to a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) report, although addiction is a complex issue, it can undoubtedly be treated effectively. However, treatments should be customized based on the individual, and not the abused substance. The organization also recommends that patients undergo counseling or behavioral therapies as part of the detoxification process.
By seeking individual therapy, women suffering from substance abuse have the opportunity to work on the specific issues that are affecting them. These private sessions allow therapists and doctors more access to the patient and the possibility to uncover the root of the addiction.
Other benefits include:
- Getting an objective viewpoint;
- A judgment-free space to voice concerns;
- In-depth discussions;
- Practice in building trusting relationships;
What Types of One-on-One Therapies Are There?
Each therapy center creates personalized programs for patients. Individual counseling sessions can take place in the doctor’s office or an alternative space. The goal is to offer patients a safe environment where they can feel comfortable addressing their addiction and take steps toward recovery.
Popular therapy methods include:
- Relaxation/meditation therapy;
- Behavioral therapy;
- Cognitive therapy;
- Cognitive behavioral therapy;
- Play/experiential therapy;
What Is a Typical Session Like?
In each session, the therapist and the patient will try to solve a problem together. The therapist invites the patient to talk about her situation, her feelings, and guides her to understanding them. The doctor’s expertise will help the patient find a solution to their problems and move forward with their recovery.
Each therapy session is different, depending on the patient. The therapist decides the course of treatment based on the discussions they have with the patients. Often, therapy can help patients navigate through their detox treatment with ease.
How Much Should I Share with My Therapist?
The main task of a therapist is to make their patients feel comfortable enough to share what they are going through during the detox process. No subject is off limits during therapy. The more a patient is comfortable, and the more they can talk to their therapists, the better the results.
Is My Privacy Protected at Therapy?
The short answer is yes. The psychologist’s code of ethics, as well as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), protects your private medical information, including what you share with your therapist, albeit with some exceptions.
Can a Therapist Prescribe Medication?
Therapists work with patients to improve their mental state. An individual’s medical treatment is established by the doctors overseeing their detox. You can check this guide here if you want to learn which professionals can prescribe medication, and which can practice therapy.
How Often Should I Attend Therapy?
The answer varies based on a patient’s needs. While patients start individual therapy sessions during their detox, these meetings do not necessarily end once the abused substance is out of their bloodstream. In fact, they often continue for an extended time to allow the patient to recover fully both physically and emotionally.
The frequency of visits will be established based on the severity of the patient’s condition. As time progresses, the therapist will determine how often patients must come in for other sessions.
The First Steps Towards a Full Recovery
NIDA suggest that simply cleansing the body of the abused substance is not enough to ensure a full recovery. Patients must also take part in addiction programs that work on their psychological issues as well. These one-on-one sessions can help a patient overcome addiction and avoid relapse.
