Addiction counseling is people who provide a support system for individuals recovering from an addiction. Whether the individual is having drug and alcohol issues, eating disorders, or other behavioral issues, counseling helps.
Addiction Therapy Work?
There are multiple addiction therapy options but they all fulfill the same goal which is to help an individual recover. This could be by:
- Stopping the use of alcohol and drugs
- Maintaining abstinence from a substance
- Addressing addiction and mental health issues
- Developing alternate coping mechanisms for stress
- Building self-esteem
Substance abuse can disrupt the way an individual thinks and behaves. Individuals can become more impulsive, disrupt their ability to focus, and hinder their learning and memory. Addiction therapy allows the individual to assess their attitudes, and learn how to react to circumstances, how to relate to people, and overcome their disordered thinking process from the drug or alcohol.
There are many benefits to addiction counseling that helps those who are addicted in countless ways. Some of these benefits include:
- Having a new perspective on things
- Coping strategies
- Advice on creating and maintaining relationships

There is a plethora of addiction therapy and they all work differently to help an individual recover. At Focused Addiction Recovery here are the therapy options we provide:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on the idea that psychological issues like addiction are the roots of harmful thinking patterns, negative behaviors, and bad coping techniques. It pushes individuals to asses what is triggering their urge to abuse drugs and alcohol. After doing this they figure out an alternative way to cope and avoid these triggers. CBT helps individuals develop strategies to deal with cravings, stressful situations, or triggers that may occur outside of rehab.
