A Personal Safe Space

Take Control of Your Life with Individual Therapy at NJRS

Individual therapy, also referred to as psychotherapy or talk therapy, is a form of therapeutic treatment where individuals meet one-on-one with a trained mental health expert. During these sessions, they’re able to address emotional, behavioral and psychological concerns in a safe, confidential space. 

The goal of individual therapy is to allow individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviors free of judgment. By doing this, they can work toward personal growth, healing and improved well-being. Clients spend a lot of time in individual therapy at NJ Recovery Solutions, as it’s a powerful tool in substance use recovery.

Understanding individual therapy

Client-Driven Talk Therapy with Individual Goals

The most effective talk therapy is client-driven, meaning that the treatment values the experience of the person in therapy first. The feedback the client receives is intended to be a guide, but it also leaves room for their own input. This approach works well in substance use recovery because the client can discuss the topics that are important to them.

When talk therapy is client-centered, it reduces dropout rates and leads to more successful outcomes. The treatment team at NJ Recovery Solutions creates personalized treatment plans for each client based on their needs, but most clients can expect to participate in individual counseling at least once a week.

Examples of Therapy Topics:

Some of the topics that our therapist and counselors encourage clients to talk about are:

  • Thoughts, patterns and behaviors, particularly negative ones
  • Rumination, or the tendency to go over the same thoughts repeatedly
  • Avoided thoughts and conflicts
  • Present feelings
  • Past traumas
  • New life challenges

Individual Therapy FAQs

Commonly Questions About Individual Therapy

Our team of dedicated professionals is committed to supporting you every step of the way, providing a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, confront the underlying causes of your struggles, and build the skills necessary for a healthier, more fulfilling life. Whether you’re dealing with the effects of substance abuse, facing mental health challenges, or both, our individual therapy sessions are designed to address your specific needs and goals.

What can I expect during my first individual therapy session?

Your first session is primarily focused on understanding your unique needs and experiences. You can expect to discuss your personal history, the challenges you’re currently facing, and your goals for therapy. This session lays the groundwork for your treatment plan and helps establish a trusting relationship between you and your therapist. It’s a safe space to share your thoughts and concerns, and there’s no pressure to disclose more than you’re comfortable with.

How often will I need to attend therapy sessions?

The frequency of your therapy sessions will depend on your personal circumstances and the nature of the issues you’re addressing. Initially, weekly sessions are common as they help build momentum and establish a supportive therapist-client relationship. Over time, as you achieve your goals and develop coping strategies, the frequency may decrease. Your therapist will work with you to determine the most effective schedule for your needs.

Can individual therapy at NJ Recovery Solutions help with my substance abuse issues as well as mental health concerns?

Absolutely. Our therapists specialize in treating both substance abuse and mental health conditions. We understand that these issues often coexist and can affect each other. Our individual therapy sessions are designed to address the complexities of dual diagnosis, helping you to understand the interplay between substance abuse and mental health, develop coping mechanisms, and work towards recovery in both areas.

How do the therapists at NJ Recovery Solutions approach treatment?

Our therapists adopt a personalized, evidence-based approach to treatment. Recognizing that every individual’s journey is unique, they draw from various therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and more to tailor treatment to your specific needs. Our goal is not just to address the symptoms but to understand and treat the root causes of your challenges, facilitating long-term healing and recovery.
