Individual or oneon-one therapy gives teens an opportunity to talk about their addiction with a compassionate and an open-minded professional. It is an essential component of teen addiction program as professionals specializing in teen addiction treatment tend to base their treatment on issues discussed in these sessions. Some issues that usually come to the fore in such sessions include handling peer pressure, dealing with conflict within family, handling childhood traumas, learning problems, and dating, amongst others. Individual therapy starts with the detoxification process. Sessions generally last for 45 to 60 minutes and take place in counsellor’s office, rehab centers for teens, and in treatment centers for mental disorders. 

Teenagers do not tend to share their feelings and emotions with strangers, especially with an adult. In case of involuntary admittance to a rehab facility, a teenager might feel let down. Under such circumstances, it is likely that they go into a shell. It is therefore, important that when a parent/guardian is looking for a treatment center for teens, they look for facilities that specially cater to this age group and has highly trained and skilled professionals. A onetoone session must create a safe and secure environment where a teen struggling with addiction can openly share their feelings. 

Therapy for teens 

Addiction treatment program for teens differs from programs meant for adults. Teens experiment with drugs and alcohol due to several factors which might be emotional as well as psychological. An adolescent brain is not fully developed, especially their decisionmaking abilities, therefore, they are unable to distinguish between right and wrong. Experimentation with drugs and alcohol may also be a result of peer pressurea sign of emotional disturbanceor a form of rebellion. However, it is not correct to presume that teens who experiment with drugs and alcohol will develop an addiction. Individual therapy at this stage of life makes a big difference in deterring them and guiding them about their choices. It also helps them learn ways to cope with problems making them self-reliant and more responsible individuals. Further, it ensures a healthy, substance-free future. 

The most commonly used form of individual therapy in addiction treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This therapy is based on a person’s ability to make positive changes in their lives by replacing negative thoughts with healthy and constructive onesCBT helps in overcoming addiction by building self-confidence. 

Mental health disorders may also be an underlying reason for addiction. Teens battling an addiction often suffer from co-occurring mental disorders. Those suffering from problems like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or any other mental disorder tend to turn to drugs and alcohol as a medium of escape from the symptoms. Individual one-on-one therapy helps teens suffering from co-occurring mental disorders in their recovery process and to manage the symptoms of both mental health illness and addiction.
