Person-Centered Therapy & Addiction Treatment

As one of the leading humanistic types of therapy, the person-centered approach to substance abuse treatment believes people have the ability and desire to grow, change, and heal themselves once they feel like they’re in a secure space.

What Is Person-Centered Therapy?

Initially known as non-directive or Rogerian therapy, person-centered therapy was developed by psychologist Carl Rogers in 1956. Unlike traditional psychotherapy at the time, which assumed individuals were inherently flawed and needed treatment, the person-centered approach embraces a non-judgmental, supportive approach.

This technique involves a therapist who listens attentively and is understanding of the client's unique experiences. Rather than dominating the conversation, the therapist's role is more of a facilitator, guiding the individual in self-discovery without interruption. During the therapeutic process, the therapist will establish six baselines.

It’s important to note that person-centered therapy is usually the first step in most relational forms of behavioral therapy.

Person-Centered Therapy In Addiction Treatment

Person-centered therapy creates a safe and non-judgmental space where patients can overcome addiction without feeling forced into an intervention. Alcohol and drug abuse can be physically and emotionally harmful, and there may be issues in the past that you don't want to discuss. Person-centered treatment helps you securely express those feelings on your own terms and understand why you want to quit using substances.

Though addiction recovery is not always a simple process, you'll leave therapy feeling like you've healed and made progress yourself. Person-centered therapy, and other talk therapies, can help you manage your emotions, build self-esteem, and learn effective communication skills so you can set boundaries and avoid relapsing.
