One of the most critical pieces of a behavioral health treatment program is individual therapy, as many mental health disorders are extremely complex. As a result, working through these challenges in individual treatment can help you identify and come to terms with your underlying disease, and help you to develop lifelong coping strategies. At Harmony Hills, we understand how beneficial individual therapy can be to a person’s treatment.

What Happens During an Individual Therapy Program?
When you come to Harmony Hills, you will meet with a therapist and a psychiatrist for an initial evaluation. During this time, we will work with you to determine what your needs are and begin to develop your initial treatment plan. We will then tailor your treatment based on these findings. In all cases, your treatment will include some form of individual therapy, with most of our guests meeting their assigned primary clinician multiple times per week.
We’ll conduct these therapy sessions in private, and we will protect your confidentiality, allowing you to develop trust and a rapport with your therapist. During these sessions, you’ll find a place where you can process what you have talked about in group therapy, and discuss the issues which have previously hindered your recovery. You’ll also be able to create goals for yourself, identify whether you’ve met treatment objectives, and develop a plan for sustained recovery.
Your therapist will work through your unique challenges alongside you and apply the necessary therapeutic treatments to your unique needs. For instance, one of the most common therapies we use during our individual counseling program is cognitive-behavioral therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a useful treatment option that we can use to help you identify negative thought patterns and actions. Once you’ve identified these patterns, your therapist will help you develop coping mechanisms to deter you from using those patterns again, and help you replace the negative patterns with healthier alternatives.
Benefits of Our Individual Counseling Program
When you first begin treatment at Harmony Hills, our therapists will talk to you about your history of behavioral health disorders, and/or drug or alcohol addiction. We will also ask you about your living situation, your friends and family, your goals for treatment, and other aspects of your life. This portion of treatment allows us to understand who you are, what you have gone through, and what a more positive future may look like. This part of the treatment may take a few treatment sessions, however, with a bit of patience, you will begin to see the unique benefits that individual therapy can provide.
For instance, these benefits may include:
- Healthier interpersonal relationships
- Improved communication skills
- Being able to control your moods and emotions more effectively
- The ability to recognize triggers and other negative habits
- Being able to cope with anger, stress, and other negative emotions
- Replacing adverse habits with healthier coping mechanisms
