Individual Counselling Drug Alcohol Rehab South Africa

Individual Counselling for addiction has proven to be an effective way to battle addiction and maintain sobriety. Addiction is classified as "a" disease, however the disease of addiction can be brought on by many different reasons.

While the consequences and effects of addiction are almost always the same, the reasons for turning to substance abuse in order to cope vary from case to case. Therefore there is no one particular treatment that is guaranteed to work on all addicts.

Rehab South Africa

At Step Away Rehab Centre our addiction counselors play an important role in our patients recovery process, they are trained and qualified to adapt to the individuals needs through the one on one session.

Daily sessions are run with a recovery counsellor who focuses on the identification and effective handling of the social and internal triggers to their addictive behaviour.

Many clients will not open up in group sessions but may be able to connect enough to trust the counsellor in a private, safe environment. We maintain that it is important that our patients feel that he or she is being heard and understood on a more personal level during individual sessions.

The counsellor can help a recovering addict focus and deal with the root cause of their addiction and teach them techniques on how to cope with the issues that caused them to turn to drugs in the first place and then how to cope with these issues going forward.

Our counselors make use of integrated approaches such as The Matrix, cognitive behaviour system theories, among others. Treating addiction with individual counselling has been proven to be an effective way to battle addiction and maintain sobriety for many recovering addicts and alcoholics.
