Address The Causes Of Drug And Alcohol Use In Individual Therapy

Substance use often comes with co-occurring mental health disorders or trauma. You can address substance use at its fundamental core in individual therapy sessions at The Counseling Center at Fair Lawn. During individual therapy, you interact directly with a licensed therapist where you are able to speak about your thoughts and feelings in regards to mental health and addiction confidentially and without fear of being judged.

Your skilled therapist will consider your unique needs to make a decision on how to approach your therapy. Our counselors employ various therapy techniques to treat substance use and mental health, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Trauma-informed Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing

When mental illness restricts your enjoyment of everyday life, you may benefit from psychiatric care at The Counseling Center. If we assess that this kind of assistance would help you, you’ll see a psychiatrist who can order the therapy and any medicine you might require. And like all of our treatments, you’ll receive an individualized plan of care centered around your medical history and unique situation. And we’ll work with you to alter treatment as necessary.

Take Advantage Of A Supportive Environment In Group Therapy

We also utilize group therapy to focus on alcohol and drug use at The Counseling Center. Every discussion is guided by an experienced therapist and involves groups fewer than 15 individuals at a comparable phase of recovery. During group discussions, you have the chance to consider other individuals’ experiences and insights about substance use recovery and describe your own.

Group counseling has the ability to benefit your recovery. Speaking with others who understand your circumstances decreases the feelings of desolation, uneasiness, and shame that often go with addiction. You’ll have a supportive network to lean on and you are able to cultivate the coping and social skills as a group that you’ll want to have to move forward.
