How does therapy help with Drug Addiction?

Depending on the severity of your drug addiction, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.
