What is individual therapy?
The road to fulfilment starts with you
Individual therapy is an essential part of drug abuse treatment. Effective treatment can help people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction stay clean. Participating in sessions can also treat other meaningful mental health issues that often contribute to prescription or illegal drug abuse.
Individual therapy addresses the key influences of recovery including
- Stress, especially sudden life stress
- Your immediate and removed environments
- Social environments.

Our therapy offers individual guidance where one can tackle issues which may be at the heart of the substance abuse problem. It allows us the space and opportunity to look deep into the role that substances have had in your life. Individual therapy allows the space for self-discovery in a safe and non-judgemental environment where people can find inspiration to recover. This can then lead to a stronger sense of self-worth and self-efficacy.
In individual therapy, a patient works with a mental health professional one-on-one to gain self-awareness, insight and empowerment. Sessions can be held at our therapist’s office, but sometimes can be kept in a meeting room. A therapy session lasts from 45 minutes to an hour. The frequency of sessions is dependant on the needs of the patient, but it will most likely be one session per week.
Individual Therapy sessions are structured according to the needs of the patient and may touch on various topics that are client centred, and client motivated. Our therapists will work with the client to identify goals and evaluate progress. Therapists do not condemn, judge, criticise or dictate to the patient. Instead, they work with the patient to empower themselves to move forward with their recovery.
