Whilst group therapy can be highly effective, the social atmosphere can also limit patients from being completely frank and open about their addiction.
By treating patients privately, and on a case-by-case basis, therapists are able to deploy more nuanced methods of treatment, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET).
Individual therapy overcomes this, with a one-to-one environment giving the patient complete peace of mind regarding their experiences.

In this more intimate setting, treatment can also more closely cater to the patient as an individual, creating a more personal experience.
Individual therapy makes more difficult emotions easier to treat, as the therapist is able to assist the patient directly.
One-to-one sessions also allow patients and therapists to build a personal connection with their therapist, helping to further tailor treatment towards the individual.
Your therapist will ensure you have a treatment journey that works for you.
Many of our patients choose to continue these sessions after their treatment is complete.
When is it Used?
Individual therapy if the patient suffers from the following:
- Deep-rooted personal trauma
- Inability to remain abstinent
- Habits that encourage relapse
- Are unaware of the impact of their addiction
What Options are Available?
When it comes to individual therapy, the only route is via a trained professional.
Therapy can be difficult to adhere to, especially in cases where the addiction in question is severe.
For this reason, some may decide that inpatient treatment is the best option. See: Outpatient vs inpatient treatments.
As always, it is best to see your local GP to help make an informed decision.
