The old saying goes that a problem which is shared is a problem halved. This saying is the closest thing we can say about drug counselling sessions that are the best therapy for addicts who are looking for a chance to talk through their problems with people who share them and professionals who know the best ways to help them.
Like structured detoxification programme taken step-by-step, rehab is the most important part of drug addiction recovery.
The most efficient ways of achieving and sustaining a drug-free life within the treatment process are drug counselling and drug support groups. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy (MET), individual and group counselling and relapse prevention are some of the most successful methods among many.
Drug Counselling And Talking Therapies
A manifestation of drug counselling that involves talking about your drug issues is called talking therapy. In this, reasons for your drug use may be included but you may as well focus on the ways to resist urge to take drugs or to achieve other goals you aspire to, but at the end it can be a mixture of all of these. There are many therapy forms that are utilised for dealing with drug issues and some of the most popular therapies are motivational treatment approaches and cognitive behavioural therapy. Depending on the circumstances, in addition to being offered a form of individual therapy, you might be offered group therapy or a period of therapeutic work with your partner or with your family.
What Drug Support Groups Are Out There?
Ongoing talking therapy sessions for addicts are provided by several drug support groups:
We are a voluntary organisation whose membership is open to anyone seeking for help with a drug problem irrespective of sex, age, creed, class, religion or race and regardless of what drug or combination of drugs they used at Narcotics Anonymous. The desire to stop using drugs is the only requirement for membership. They have a weekly meeting and follow a series of 12 principles and they expect complete abstinence. In meetings, members share their personal experiences in order to find solutions to their problems.
Another service is Cocaine Anonymous which is a partnership of men and women who gather on a platform to share their common issues and also share their experience, strength and trust with each other and help each other. Also for this the main necessity is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and whatever other personality-modifying substances. This organization also adopts the Twelve Step recovery method common among drug addiction organizations to pave the way for recovery through treatment program activities including counselling, group therapy, and fellowship between addicts, through sharing of experience, challenges and success stories during rehabilitation to stay sober.
SMART Recovery (SMART) is another service which is based on science plan to help people to recover from any kind of addictive behavior.
