Talk therapy, also called psychotherapy, enables a therapist to help guide thought processes. This type of therapy aims to help a person open up and express what’s happening to them. It can help explore new ways of thinking and enable a person to learn how to control negative thought processes that can lead to addictive behaviors. At Sierra Sage Recovery Services, we provide a range of therapies to enable healing.
What Can Talk Therapy Do for You?
There are many benefits to this type of addiction therapy. If you engage in it, you may see improvement in several ways, including:
- Improved understanding of your symptoms and addiction
- A better understanding of past trauma and its impact on health and wellbeing
- Support for changing thought processes helps to build self-confidence
- Improved ability to communicate thoughts, wishes, and needs
- Learning how to control and cope with stress in a productive manner
The benefit of talk therapy to you is dependent on what your unique needs are. Some people have years of trauma that need to be worked through to stop using drugs and alcohol. Other people have a form of self-hate that limits their ability to embrace life.
Key in the goal of therapy is to learn how to manage your addiction. That means learning how to address things that put you at risk for relapse, such as stress, poor relationships, and bad communication. You may also learn strategies to deal with other people. Family therapy may even allow you to heal the relationships you have that are important to you.
What Are Some Types of Talk Therapy?
There are many ways to engage in talk therapy. These are various strategies that allow therapists to give you more information and guidance. Each type of program is unique in its approach or the goal it has. For example, individual therapy occurs when you work one-on-one with a therapist. This type of treatment can help with underlying mental health disorders, past trauma, or understanding personal triggers. Group therapy involves working with peers who can help you to understand your addiction better. They can also be a source of support.
We also use cognitive-behavioral therapy, a type of talk therapy in which a person learns to become more aware of their negative and inaccurate thoughts and then learns how to change those thoughts into better outcomes. Dialectical behavior therapy is another example. The focus here is learning to live in the moment and embracing the opportunity to change.
