Individual Therapy

At Royal Life Centers, each guest is assigned a primary therapist upon admission. Guests will work closely with their primary therapist during their stay with us. Our addiction therapists conduct a thorough biopsychosocial and spiritual assessment of each guest to determine the most effective means of treatment for their individual needs, goals, and circumstances. With the help of their therapist, each guest will develop an Individual Service Plan (ISP), designed to identify aspects of their lives that they’d like to change or improve upon.

Our therapists work one-on-one with our guests in a safe, open environment to help them overcome personal obstacles, negative feelings, dysfunctional emotions, low self-esteem, poor coping mechanisms, and other underlying issues that contribute to their substance use disorder and/or associated mental health disorders.

At Royal Life Centers, we do not believe that pre-packaged, pre-determined treatment tracks are appropriate or effective when treating substance abuse. Instead, we take measures to ensure that our therapists have the needed resources and skills to collaborate with guests on individualized, specialized treatment plans that accommodate guests’ unique circumstances, needs, and goals. Because We Care, our guests and their well-being always come first.

Often, individual therapy can help guests gain a better understanding of their substance use disorder, increase motivation to live a substance-free life, learn healthy stress management tactics, forge stronger relationships, and build self-worth. It is also particularly helpful in treating co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety, as treatment and diagnosis efforts are focused on one guest at a time.

At Royal Life Centers, our addiction therapists are trained in a variety of therapy practices to ensure optimal counseling and treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), one such therapy, is a present-oriented, problem-solving form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and addressing dysfunctional thinking that we believe is highly effective for many different people.

During detox and residential treatment, guests will attend hour-long individual therapy sessions each day. During outpatient, individual sessions are held once per week. It is important that guests realize that therapy is a collaborative process and that communication is two-sided— neither guest nor therapist should do all the talking. For therapy to be impactful and inspire change, both parties must express their own thoughts, as well as their responses to thoughts expressed by the other.
