An individual therapy program is a cornerstone of addiction and mental health treatment programs. It is an effective method for investigating the underlying causes of addiction and psychological issues. During sessions, the client works one-on-one with a therapist to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to their problems. Also called talk therapy or psychotherapy, a key component of an individual therapy program is the collaborative effort between the therapist and client in developing a roadmap to recovery.

The frequency and duration of individual therapy is based to a large degree on a client’s needs, treatment goals, and progress. Individual therapy is highly flexible in that sessions are customized to address a client’s changing needs throughout the recovery process. While some sessions might focus on the past experiences of the client, others might look to the future. Over time, clients learn to trust their therapist and develop strong bonds with them. At The Ranch Tennessee, we work to provide our clients with programs such as our life skills coaching and training program which teaches them communication and relationship-building.

How Individual Therapy Helps

woman at an individual therapy programIndividual therapy can be helpful in recovery from addiction, emotional trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder, codependency, grief or loss, depression, anxiety, and other behavioral problems. Therapy helps clients confront barriers interfering with their emotional and mental well-being. By forming a relationship with your therapist, you are able to work through certain events in your life that may be causing you trauma.

Psychotherapy has the potential to improve coping skills and reduce destructive behaviors. Research shows that an individual therapy program and a group therapy program also reduces relapses of moderate depression and anxiety and the positive effects can endure well beyond the treatment. At The Ranch Tennessee, we offer our clients with the programs to help them do so.
