Therapy plays a substantial role in treatment. You will talk one-on-one with your therapist in private and participate in group therapy.
Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you understand negative emotions. You can better understand why you abuse drugs and how you can stop them. It will also teach you about unwanted thoughts and behaviors and how to stop them.
Motivational interviewing is ideal for those with low self-esteem regarding themselves and their decisions. This therapy helps a person build up their confidence and motivation. This can help them overcome their addiction and avoid relapsing.
Family therapy is useful if a patient’s addiction problems are rooted in their family. It is also useful if a person doesn’t feel supported by their loved ones. It can help the family understand how addiction works as well. This therapy can remedy problems between family members and create a more supportive family unit.
