Where group counseling helps you with skill development and peer support, Individual Counseling is purely about you and the difficulties and traumas you have confronted in life.
As we build the treatment plan together, we will work hand-in-hand with you to uncover the issues that precipitated your need to use substances to avoid the negative feelings that occur when you are triggered by something in the environment. We call this “discovering the underlying pathology,” or finding the “roots” of your substance abuse.
This process helps you find the things that cause the anxiety or negative feelings and work to wrestle away their control over your daily life. By doing this you may be aware of the events you have confronted in life, but they will no longer exert power over you. This is the Better Solution that gives you the life you always wanted to have.
