Drug counselling is one of the most effective treatments for overcoming drug addiction. Either as a treatment itself or as part of drug rehab, counselling can consist of one to one or group sessions with likeminded individuals. Below you will find all the information needed for you to make a decision when considering drug counselling as part of your recovery. If you, or a loved one, would benefit from drug counselling, then call Port of Call today on 0800 002 9010.
What is drug addiction counselling?
Drug counselling not only addresses the symptoms of drug addiction but is also used to inform the structure of your drug treatment programme. With drug abuse counselling, there is a major focus on introducing a change to your behaviour. You will be familiarised with the 12-step ideology and provided with the tools required for recovery.
The end goal of counselling for drug addiction is to help you, or your loved one, achieve recovery and maintain abstinence in the long-term. In addition to this, drug addiction counselling aims to help you to also recover from the damage that your drug addiction caused in your life.
Depending on what you require, drug abuse counselling can take place either in a group, or one to one environment, with a registered counsellor or psychiatrist. The treatment focuses on you sharing your story with others, overcoming isolation and loneliness, and gaining the support you need.
