Forward Health Ohio: Individual Therapy in Treatment for Substance Abuse
Substance abuse is a growing problem in Ohio and the United States. Addiction to drugs or alcohol can have devastating consequences for individuals and families, but recovery is possible with the right treatment. At Forward Health Ohio, we specialize in helping individuals overcome addiction through evidence-based treatment, including individual therapy.
Individual therapy is an essential component of our treatment approach at Forward Health Ohio. During these one-on-one sessions, clients work with a licensed therapist to explore the underlying causes of their addiction, develop coping skills, and set goals for their recovery. Our therapists use evidence-based practices, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, to help clients achieve lasting change.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. By learning new coping skills and challenging negative thoughts, clients can develop healthier ways of dealing with stress and difficult emotions. Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique that helps clients explore their motivations for change and build confidence in their ability to make positive changes.
Individual therapy sessions are tailored to the individual’s unique needs, goals, and circumstances. Clients may meet with their therapist once a week or more frequently, depending on their level of need. During sessions, clients have the opportunity to discuss their progress, setbacks, and concerns with their therapist. Our therapists provide support, guidance, and accountability to help clients stay on track with their recovery.
