How We Individualize Care At O.R.R

By intentionally keeping our staff-to-client ratio low, we can keep treatment costs affordable, focus our attention directly on our clients, and create personalized treatment plans with more opportunities for one-on-one therapy sessions to develop deeper connections.

Oasis River Recovery is committed to working with each client to find the best programs and therapies for them, considering their preferences, lifestyle, and schedule. With fewer clients, our addiction recovery facility offers a comfortable and supportive environment, allowing clients to connect with others with similar goals and struggles without feeling overwhelmed or pressured.

How Individual Therapy Helps

Substance abuse treatment is more than just detox, which only addresses the immediate physical effects of drug or alcohol use. Drug abuse and alcohol addiction are usually coping mechanisms for underlying mental, behavioral health, and emotional challenges. When an individual goes through detox, there can be a lot of complex emotions and thoughts to sort through. Individual therapy sessions are vital to addiction recovery because they provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore and process these emotions, identify triggers, and develop healthy coping skills.

Most psychotherapy research indicates that individual and group therapy can effectively treat various psychological disorders and issues within a therapeutic or counseling environment. Although, everyone's specific needs and comfort levels are different. Some benefit more from a group setting, enjoying the sense of community support, while others with less social skills prefer an individual approach.

Because Oasis River Recovery only accepts a limited number of clients at a time, we can keep our treatment costs low and affordable to those who need them. With fewer staff, clients, and facility expenses, we can focus treatment costs directly on our clients.


With fewer clients, our staff can focus and create personalized treatment plans for everyone. This improves the staff's ability to focus on each client's unique needs and provides more opportunities for one-on-one therapy sessions.


We tailor our programs and therapies to each client's unique needs, preferences, and schedule. Our staff offers personalized attention, monitors progress, and adapts treatments for optimal results.


With fewer clients, individuals in addiction recovery won't feel pressured to open up in large or diverse crowds. This also allows clients to connect with others at the treatment center, forming bonds with individuals with the same goals and struggles.

Individual therapy in addiction treatment

Individual Therapy In Addiction Treatment

Individuals in our addiction recovery programs will be allowed to participate in one-on-one therapy sessions. While group and family therapy are also included in our comprehensive treatment programs, individualized therapy sessions provide a comfortable environment to explore the root causes of addiction and focus on addressing particular thought patterns or cravings.

What To Expect In Individual Therapy

Oasis River Recovery's individual therapy plans involve one-on-one sessions with an assigned therapist while an individual is at our treatment center. By meeting with the same therapist regularly, the counselor and patient can develop a close and personal bond that allows them to delve into emotions, trauma, and the causes of addiction. Once familiarity and respect are established, the therapist and individual can create personalized relapse prevention goals and a long-lasting treatment plan.


evidence-based types of therapies used in individual therapy sessions:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy

CBT is a common form of talk therapy aimed at helping individuals reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Unlike traditional views of mental illness that categorize depression, anxiety, and addiction as mood disorders, CBT considers them cognitive problems where an individual's thoughts and interpretations of situations can worsen their symptoms.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This type of therapy teaches individuals to recognize and embrace their inner emotions as normal responses to specific circumstances and traumatic memories that should not hinder them from achieving their life goals.

Humanistic/ Experiential Therapy

The main goal of this therapy is to concentrate on an individual's unique qualities rather than the behaviors associated with a particular mental or personality disorder. This approach is divided into two methods, Gestalt and client-centered therapy, which emphasizes viewing the individual as a whole, considering their strengths and potential for self-healing.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT falls under the umbrella of cognitive behavioral therapy and aims to equip patients with skills and understanding to handle emotions effectively, cope with stress, and enhance their interpersonal connections.

Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal therapy is founded on the idea that certain mental disorders can be inherited or have a genetic predisposition and that anxiety-inducing life events, such as interpersonal conflicts, can lead to symptoms. This therapy can be delivered in either an individual or group setting and aims to support patients in enhancing their communication skills to manage relationship issues and decrease stress levels.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This form of psychotherapy proposes that unresolved childhood conflicts can cause alcohol abuse and drug addiction, and the therapist will explore the patient's past to help them manage and comprehend their emotions and current challenges.

Benefits Of Individual Therapy

There are four main benefits of incorporating evidence-based individual therapy into an addiction treatment program.

Better Self-understanding

Through individual therapy, people struggling with addiction can gain a comprehensive understanding of their triggers, coping mechanisms, and the root causes that led to their substance use disorder. In a safe and caring setting, a therapist can assist individuals in designing a recovery path and an action plan to tackle their challenges.

Enhance Mindfulness

Addiction therapists can use mindfulness to teach individuals how to live in the moment, accept a positive outlook, track triggers, and avoid substance use. Mindfulness also helps calm anxiety and other issues.

Benefits Of Individual Therapy

Identify Triggers

It's essential to understand the triggers behind drug abuse, but many people don't. Individual therapy can help you learn more about this factor and develop coping techniques to overcome it, which is perhaps the most important benefit.

Improve Communication Skills

Individual therapy helps individuals regain social skills lost during addiction, making it easier to connect with non-drug users and find healthy peer support. Therapy can also provide ongoing support and guidance, ensuring long-term sobriety and happiness even after leaving the treatment facility.
