Having individual therapy is super important to us. It’s like having a private chat between the therapist and the person needing help. In this comfy, caring space, people can talk about their problems and figure out how to get better.
A Glimpse of What’s in Store
The first time you meet with a therapist, it’s a special session. The therapist listens carefully to learn about your past and how you feel today. This helps them find the best ways to support you. Sometimes, they might ask you to do a little task or think about certain things at home. This “homework” helps you understand yourself better and continue to grow.
While everyone’s journey is unique, New Origins recommends a minimum engagement of 90 days to ensure the foundation for recovery is robust. Depending on individual needs, some might require longer periods, ranging from 4-6 months or even a year.
Individual therapy is like having a private meeting with a counselor where they can focus on just you and your feelings. It’s all about helping you with your specific problems.
Group therapy is when you’re in a group with other people who might be going through similar things. You all talk about your feelings and experiences together. It’s like being on a team where everyone helps each other.
Some people like individual therapy because it’s all about them, while others like group therapy because they can share with others who understand. You can even do both if you want!
Your secrets and private talks will always be kept secret. Nobody else needs to know what you talk about with your therapist. It’s a safe and private space.
If you ever feel like your problems are too much to handle or you want to understand why you do certain things related to using substances, talking to a therapist one-on-one can really help. It’s like having a personal guide to figure things out.
Definitely! Sometimes, individual therapy is part of a bigger plan to help someone recover. It’s like having different tools to build a strong house.
