One of the questions many people have about their addiction is how they became addicted. The struggle most people have with their addiction is the delusion that they can somehow or someday drink or use drugs like everyone else. It’s very difficult for anyone to come to accept the fact that they react differently to drugs or alcohol than other people. Therefore, they may want answers as to how this has happened. Individualized care in treatment is one way to find these answers, but this type of treatment is also beneficial for other reasons. Much like schooling, each person learns to stay sober in a different way, and what may work for one person may not work for another. This is why individualized treatment is so beneficial.

Therapy and Individualized Care

The most beneficial part of an individualized treatment program is knowing that you’ll be able to receive one on one therapy. This is helpful for different people for many different reasons. Some people don’t feel comfortable opening up to their peers about certain parts of their past or previous traumas they’ve been through. This is where a therapist can greatly help. Some of the main reasons a person becomes addicted is due to the person’s parent being addicted, or the person having suffered some type of childhood trauma. Individual therapy sessions provide people with a safe place to open up about different memories that may be currently fueling their addiction.

Mental illness is another one of the leading risk factors for addiction, so it’s important that a person’s mental health is treated as well as their addiction. This is an important aspect of an individualized treatment program because someone who is suffering from severe anxiety will need to be treated in a different way than someone with bipolar disorder. Having a therapist personally work with you on your symptoms of mental health is one of the most important parts of the treatment process.

Individualized Care Methods

There isn’t only one way to get sober, which is why it’s important to learn what types of treatment will help you the most. For some, 12-step programs are the best way for the person to stay sober, but others may need to find an alternative because one issue or another is keeping them away from 12-step meetings. Due to these factors, different types of individualized care can prove very helpful. Some recovering individuals can focus more on dealing with their issues through writing, artwork or maintaining a good fitness level. Others may participate in meditation therapy.
