What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, commonly called talk therapy, is a term used to describe a number of different treatment techniques used by trained practitioners. When incorporated into addiction treatment, psychotherapy plays a vital role in helping support your mental and emotional health as you work to move beyond addiction. 

Psychotherapy fulfills a number of needs. It helps you understand the ways addiction impacts your physical health as well as your mental health. It looks at ways to improve your resilience and teaches you how to build strong coping skills. 

At My Next Steps of Morganton, psychotherapy is one of many treatments to give you the skills needed for recovery that lasts a lifetime. In combination with options like medication-assisted treatment, psychotherapy helps treat you as a whole person, and not just a collection of symptoms. 

What kinds of issues can psychotherapy address?

One of the best things about psychotherapy is the ability to customize the process. Your needs are unique, and an approach that works for someone else may not be as effective for you. Psychotherapy focuses on the issues and needs specific to your life and experience. 

Some of the potential areas of focus within psychotherapy include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder

At My Next Steps of Morganton, psychotherapy services are performed by a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate with extensive training and experience. 

What happens during psychotherapy sessions?

Your first visit is an opportunity for you to meet your therapist and learn more about how they approach psychotherapy. It’s also a chance for your therapist to begin to get to know you and better understand your experience with addiction. 

These early visits play a critical role in creating a customized treatment plan. Your active participation is vital to the process, and you’re always encouraged to ask questions and express concerns as they arise. 

Psychotherapy may occur during one-on-one sessions with your therapist, or in a group setting. Speak to the care coordinator for more information on family sessions with your therapist, it can go a long way toward rebuilding healthy connections with your loved ones. 

Booking a psychotherapy visit is as simple as a phone call or a few moments online, so make today the day you take a step toward your new life.
