There are Several Types of Counseling & Therapy
Group therapy generally involves one or more therapists who lead a group of 5 – 15 patients. Sessions can range from 1 – 2 hours per week, 1 – 2 days per week. This group environment opens the door for empathy which is a key step in recovery. Many life challenges and issues are addressed such as depression, obesity, chronic pain, family challenges, work struggles, etc.
For substance abuse, individual counseling is very common and well-known. Developed by Sigmund Freud as psychotherapy. This one-on-one approach between the therapist and person in therapy is an important one as it explores the complexities of the individual and helps address deep-rooted conflicts and defenses.
It is designed to build skills to help cope with the emotional challenges that we may encounter on a day-to-day basis. This includes tolerance, mindfulness, regulation of emotions, interpersonal social skills, and more. The goal of this therapy is to help individuals learn to better accept and balance the inevitable, which is change.
This type of therapy as the name suggests involves the family and gives them the opportunity to be involved. The therapist helps in facilitating communication and working through conflicts. Talking points may include marital issues, financial problems, conflicts between parents, and of course the effects of substance abuse on the overall family.
