An Overview of Addiction Therapy

Addiction is the overwhelming compulsion to drink, use drugs, or perform a detrimental act in excess. An addiction that is not kept under control or treated can result in job loss, the end of important relationships, disability, or even death – affecting not only the addicted person but also their friends and family.

The good news is that therapy can help you beat your addiction, so it does not have to define your life anymore. With addiction therapy, there is hope to regain a life of joy, happiness, and fulfillment. Let’s talk about how it works and who can help.

How Addiction Therapy Can Help

Addiction therapy is offered on an inpatient or outpatient basis, or a combination of both. It can help you learn how to get rid of the following:

Addiction therapy can also help with:

Ultimately, the deciding factor for a successful addiction therapy program is the person’s own willingness and determination to recover. Willingness is the best thing that you can bring to the addiction treatment facility, because no one can do it for you.

What Is Included in Addiction Therapy?

Addiction therapy programs are designed to help a person to wean off the substance or the behavior that they are addicted to, and to begin the cycle of healing. The first step is to detox from the substance with the help of medication in a clinically supervised environment. The next step is where the patient undergoes a comprehensive evaluation to determine the physical, psychological, and social aspects of the addiction, which are also what made you vulnerable to the addiction in the first place.

No two treatments are exactly alike when it comes to addiction therapy. It is a very personal experience, which is why the treatment is individualized to the unique needs and circumstances of the patient. An individual’s therapy program may include individual and group therapy sessions, individual and family counseling, and education. A comprehensive addiction therapy program will include relapse prevention and life skills.
