As the old saying goes, a problem shared is a problem halved. In the context of drug counselling sessions that provide the ultimate therapy for addicts seeking a chance to talk through their problem with a group of professionals and supportive peers who know exactly what they're going through that's never been truer.
Rehab is a crucial part of drug dependency recovery, along with a gradual and planned detox strategy.
As parts of rehabilitation therapy, drug counselling and drug support groups are the most effective means of reaching a point of freedom from addiction. Varied methods that have been used with great success include individual counselling, group therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy (MET) to avoid relapse.
Discussing your issues and problems related to drugs and liquor and discussion on therapies are type of drug counselling. In this, reasons for your drug use may be included but you may as well focus on the ways to resist urge to take drugs or to achieve other goals you aspire to, but at the end it can be a mixture of all of these. There are other forms of therapy that are used for drug problems but cognitive behavioural therapy and motivation treatment approaches are the best well-known therapies. From case to case, as addition to individual therapy you may be offered group therapy or therapeutic work with family or partner.
There are a couple of support groups that give ongoing talking therapy sessions to people who have addiction problems:
Narcotics Anonymous is an open organisation that works on a voluntary basis and anybody that is looking for help with a drug issue can join, regardless of their age, religion, race, sex, creed or class, as well as the drugs they have used. Wanting to quit drug abuse is the only thing necessary to join. Narcotics Anonymous main activity is the weekly meetings attendance preceded by 12 principles series procedure with expected restraint from substance use. Weekly meetings consist of sharing personal experience on addiction and success achieved to stay sober.
A fellowship of men and women who share their experience, hope and strength with each other to solve their common problem and help others to recover from their addiction are know as Cocaine Anonymous. Same as in first case, only thing you need is a will to stop using cocaine and other addictive substances. They use Twelve Step programme as well which involves a series of things that need to be done on a road to recovery from addiction, and believe that sharing experience among addicts is a key step which is hard to get through different methods.
SMART Recovery (SMART) is a method that tries to assist people with managing their recovery from any behaviour that causes dependency and it is based on science. SMART stands for 'Self Management And Recovery Training' and helps members to choose whether they have an issue, develops their inspiration to change and offers an arrangement of demonstrated apparatuses and procedures to support recovery.
