One on One Therapy

Individual Therapy is Essential for Substance Abuse Recovery

At Serenity Acres, we believe individualized treatment is an integral part of addiction recovery. As part of our holistic approach to treatment, individual therapy begins the healing process for the mind of the client. Clients have up to 5 individual therapy sessions a week, including addictions counseling for all clients, and mental health counseling where needed. During these sessions, personal goals and needs can be discussed in a private, confidential setting with a licensed therapist. Once the nature and extent of the substance abuse history is identified, our therapists can help the client identify potential triggers, as well as work through underlying causes and conditions.

Individual therapy can be targeted at specific topics depending on the needs of the individual client, such as underlying shame and guilt, or grief. Oftentimes substance abuse is co-occurring with other mental or emotional disorders, and it is essential to address these challenges as the client begins to recover. Once the client reaches a level of comfort with their own process, these issues can be brought into group therapy discussions, but one-on-one therapy provides a safe environment in which to begin the healing process. Our therapists help the clients to come up with therapy schedules and treatment plans based on individual needs as they change throughout the recovery process.
