Addiction Therapy

Addiction therapy psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives. Psychologists apply research-based techniques to help people develop more effective habits. There are several approaches to therapy, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and psychodynamic, among others, that help people work through their problems. Therapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. A psychologist provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. Most therapy focuses on individuals, although psychotherapists also work with couples, families and groups

Addiction is a multifaceted problem, but one that can be treated effectively.

Treatment should be directed to the individual person rather than to their drug(s) of choice.

Treatment can be helpful even if the client initially goes involuntarily. (Eventually, the client's voluntary participation in treatment will influence their recovery path.)

Medications can be an important part of treatment to address drug abuse or the mental health aspects underlying substance use.

Counseling and behavioral therapies are highly utilized and the best available treatment options for drug abuse.

Many agree that behavioral therapies are an essential element to treat substance use, but with so many options, it can be challenging to know what forms of treatment are available, how they differ, and which is best for the individual. It should also be mentioned that the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) does not believe that there is any one approach that is appropriate for every person.
