What should I know about substance use counseling?

Substance use counseling, also called addiction therapy, is a specialized therapy for those struggling with a substance use disorder. Substance use disorder affects the structure and function of the brain, making it hard to resist the cravings and compulsions brought on by drug and alcohol use.

Substance use disorders affect physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Treatment requires attention to all of these areas to maintain sobriety. Substance use counseling addresses the mental and emotional aspects of the disease. 

Magnolia Medical Group provides compassionate, evidence-based substance use counseling, giving you the tools to understand and overcome your addiction.

Why do I need substance use counseling?

Substance use counseling teaches you how to live your life without drugs. It’s one of the primary treatments for substance use disorders and gives you the tools for long-term recovery.

Quitting an addictive substance is a major life change that may trigger mental health struggles. Without proper support during this life change, you’re at greater risk of relapse. 

Substance use counseling teaches you how to create new, healthy habits and skills that improve how you cope with the stresses of life. Substance use counseling also uncovers underlying mental health issues co-occurring with your addiction, such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

What can I expect from substance use counseling?

You can expect compassionate, patient-focused substance use counseling from the team at Magnolia Medical Group. They customize treatment plans so you get the best outcomes. They use various therapeutic methods for addiction therapy, such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational interviewing (MI)
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Mindfulness

The team may have you engage in individual, family, or group counseling. 

Through substance use counseling, you learn to recognize your drug use triggers and how to change your thoughts and actions to reduce your risk of relapse.

How long do I need substance use counseling?
