Individual Addiction Therapy In Nashville
Individual therapy can be intimidating, and even overwhelming at the start. It is because of this that the therapist uses their training and discretion to construct the best road map for treatment, that allows the patient to feel safe and valued. Our hope here in Nashville is that they become comfortable enough to share what is most difficult for them. It is through this process that some of the most subtle, or seemingly unimportant details become known, and the most effective avenue of treatment can begin. It is difficult for a person to be able to pinpoint exactly what is troubling them, or to what extent, so it is up to the therapist to guide them through these experiences, and paint a picture for the patient of how that experience may have impacted them, or shaped their decision making.
Trauma is also addressed through one on one counseling. It is a documented fact that trauma is the root cause of many people’s addiction issues, and trauma looks different for everyone. This can include childhood neglect, sexual, physical or emotional abuse. Spousal neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Or trauma stemming from a specific incident or tragic event. There may be things that occurred in your past that you have suppressed, or perhaps given little thought to, that your therapist finds to have been damaging to your psyche. Once this information has been shared, the staff at JourneyPure is able to provide immediate input and comfort. Validating the patient’s experiences and letting them know that there is no shame in sharing is critical, as is letting them know that their feelings are heard, and understood. They can also give coaching and advice in real-time, giving the individual feedback as needed, and as is appropriate.
