Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this Westport, CT Facility.
Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.
Family therapy is often done alongside drug treatment to help addicts stay sober. The goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can happen without judgment, hostility, or blame. The therapist will sit with the family so they can learn how to communicate differently and provide new tools for dealing with emotions so that people don’t want to drink or do drugs. It’s important for families to focus on relapse prevention plans during treatment so that if the addict feels like they want to use again, they’ll know what steps they need to take together to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.
During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.
This type of therapy can help addicts get in touch with their emotions without feeling overwhelmed by them. It also allows the addict to develop strategies for coping with negative feelings that might trigger cravings or lead to relapse.
During these sessions, addicts will learn how to recognize and manage their cravings while developing an action plan for dealing with stress and other triggers. Combining the coping strategies learned in these sessions with ongoing therapy can help addicts lead a stable and healthy lifestyle that is free from addiction.
These types of therapy sessions provide several benefits to people dealing with addiction. By providing a safe environment for addicts to discuss their feelings, therapists can identify the issues that trigger cravings and work with addicts to develop strategies for avoiding relapse.
