The Importance of Individual Therapy for Addiction

Individual addiction therapy allows individuals to gain insight into the underlying causes of their addiction, identify triggers that may lead to relapse and develop strong coping strategies for preventing future relapses. 

Individual therapy also provides a safe space to explore their past. With individual therapy, individuals can address their own needs and find personalized strategies for recovery. 

In addition, our therapists provide objective feedback concerning progress and identify areas where additional help is needed.

Getting to the root of your addiction

Diving into the personal can provide healing in addiction recovery because it helps identify the root causes of one’s addiction. 

Being honest with oneself is key to healing and understanding why or how an addiction began. Self-mastery is essential in the recovery process. 

At Cornerstone, we believe that our clients must come to know themselves better so that they can move forward with purpose in recovery. 

Individual therapy for addiction vs group therapy for addiction

Individual therapy involves working one-on-one with a counselor to explore and identify any mental health issues that need attention. It allows the client to focus on themselves and their personal circumstances in order to develop insight, self-awareness, and healthier coping skills.

Group therapy, on the other hand, is most effective when several people come together to discuss similar issues or topics that they are struggling with. This type of therapy offers the opportunity to learn from one another, gain insights and perspectives, provide support, and build relationships

Both types of therapy are essential in the recovery process.
