Individual psychotherapy is an important part of rehab treatment at Castle Craig. Through private, one-on-one sessions the focal therapist and patient give special attention to each individual and their unique circumstances. This allows us to explore and address the root causes of addiction on a case-by-case basis, leading to effective and sustained recovery.

How Individual Rehab Therapy Works

Individual therapy gives patients the chance to speak in complete privacy and confidentiality with a specialist therapist.  Our therapists are COSCA accredited, or working towards their accreditations and naturally use a discreet and sensitive approach with patients, encouraging them to open up about matters they may find difficult to share.

What Individual Sessions Achieve

The focal therapist guides the sessions which aim to:

  • Address deep-rooted personal issues e.g. trauma, grief, abuse;
  • Motivate the patient to achieve and maintain abstinence;
  • Change attitudes and behaviours that may lead to relapse;
  • Maximise insight into the addiction;
  • Address the impact addiction has had on the patient’s life.

The sessions follow a clear structure, in line with the treatment programme directed by our Consultant Psychiatrist, and is a key part of the patient’s personal treatment plan.  Full sessions take place twice weekly and patients on the Executive Programme will meet for one-to-one sessions five times weekly.
