What Are Individual Counseling Services?

Recovery from addiction and mental health conditions is a challenging process. You must develop essential skills and coping mechanisms in order to create a healthier lifestyle. As a result, it is critical to enroll in a program at an addiction treatment center that offers individual counseling. When it comes to individual counseling services in Idaho, there a range of choices. At Zelus Recovery, we offer many options for the individuals who attend our programs. If you or a teen or young adult close to you is battling addiction and could benefit from individual counseling services, don’t hesitate. Reach out to the addiction specialists at Zelus Recovery online today or call us at 208.518.0797

Individual Counseling Services at Zelus Recovery

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

One of our most successful individual counseling services is cognitive-behavioral therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a method of talk therapy that takes place one-on-one with a therapist. The idea behind cognitive-behavioral therapy is that a person’s addiction is caused by negative thought processes, emotions, and behaviors. Cognitive-behavioral therapy allows a patient to uncover and address the root causes of their alcohol or substance use issues and — with the help of a licensed, highly trained therapist — to develop strategies and mindsets that will allow them to move forward in life without the crutch of substance use. 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

A type of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy encourages individuals to identify and their current situation and reconcile it with where they would like to be in the future. Unlike cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy sessions can sometimes occur in a group setting, but it always begins in a one-on-one environment with an individual counselor. Dialectical behavior therapy also involves a slower, more methodical approach, giving the patient the time and space they need to identify and come to grips with the issues that have led to and perpetuated their addictive behaviors.

Trauma Therapy

Another option for individual counseling in Idaho is trauma counseling. Many people begin using drugs or alcohol to escape some traumatic event or series of events they have undergone in the past. This trauma can take a variety of forms, including:

  • Abuse
  • Natural disasters
  • War
  • Violence

With individual counseling services involving trauma therapy, one of our therapists will work with you to find the root cause of your trauma. Once we have discovered the cause, you can begin the healing process.

Other Individual Counseling Services at Zelus Recovery

There is a range of other individual counseling services offered by the expert clinical team at Zelus Recovery. Some of these can also double as group therapies, depending on what your therapist determines is the best option for you. Some of our options for individual counseling at our Boise, Idaho facility include:

  • Yoga therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Rational emotive behavioral therapy
