'A problem shared is a problem halved,' is tried, tested and true. 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.
Drug counselling and support groups are two valuable fundamental elements of activities in achieving the overall rehabilitation procedure and staying free from addiction. The techniques used can include group work, relapse prevention, Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and individual counselling to name but a few.
Discussing your issues and problems related to drugs and liquor and discussion on therapies are type of drug counselling. This entails a mix or separate exploring of causes of your drug abuse, but may concentrate on things you can do to fight drug urges or to achieve another positive objective. There are many therapies related to drugs the most famous treatment approaches are Motivational and Cognitive behavioural therapies. 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.
Ongoing talking therapy sessions for addicts are provided by several drug support groups:
Narcotics Anonymous is an open organisation that works on a voluntary basis and anybody that is looking for help with a drug issue can join, regardless of their age, religion, race, sex, creed or class, as well as the drugs they have used. The desire to stop using drugs is the only requirement for membership. Their primary service is an expectation of complete abstinence and the weekly local meetings that follow a series of 12 principles. In sessions, patients talk about their problems with each other, which bring fruitful results and solutions of 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. A desire to quit cocaine abuse or any other drug abuse is, here as well, the only necessity for joining. 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 a method that tries to assist people with managing their recovery from any behaviour that causes dependency and it is based on science. SMART aims people to think about whether they have issues, helps them become motivated to change and provides a set of verified tools and strategies that encourage recovery, thus the name that means 'Self Management And Recovery Training'.
