Individual Therapy is one of the keys to addiction recovery. Before a client
arrives to Blueprints For Recovery, he has been assigned an individual
addiction therapist who greets him and his family at admissions. The role
of this counselor is not only to treat the client on drug addiction issues,
but also to work with the clients to create an individualized treatment
plan, and coordinate all care with other long term recovery staff.
Sessions Are Customized to Fit Your Treatment
During individual addiction therapy sessions, you or your loved one are
given the support, encouragement and inspiration they need to stay clean,
sober, and achieve long term recovery. The goal of these tailored therapy
sessions is to provide a safe environment to identify and treat issues
that may hinder recovery if ignored. These hurdles to recovery may include
co-occurring conditions and cross-addictions. During your stay at Blueprints
For Recovery, the frequency of individual therapy sessions vary based
on your substance abuse treatment plan.
In addition to the individual counseling treatment sessions, your counselor
is also involved with some of the client’s group addiction therapy
sessions to observe the interaction with other members of the group. Your
counselor will also consult with any other staff members aiding you in
your recovery. This creates a multi-faceted approach to achieve the ultimate goal.

Renowned psychologist Peter Levine developed the somatic experience program
to help people overcome traumatic events. Dr. Levine realized that wild
animals, who constantly live under the threat of death, show no signs
of trauma. When faced with a life threatening or traumatic event, living
things default to one of three reactions: flight, fight, and reflex. It
is the third response that can result in trauma as some people do not
allow themselves to engage in their reflex state long enough and became
trapped in a heightened state of alertness. Without allowing your response
to reach a point of conclusion, your mind and body constantly feel as
though they are in danger and become incapable of relaxing. This is a
common contributing factor to addiction.
The symptoms of trauma may not manifest for years, and may result in:
- Excitability hyperactivity
- Irascible temper tantrums
- Drug abuse
- Feelings of alienation
- Impaired concentration
- Attachment disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Chronic pain
- Neck and back problems
- Problems with the immune system or the endocrine system.
Somatic experiencing can help you or a loved one process a traumatic event
so that your body can release tension and recover. You or a loved one
may be in need of somatic experiencing if you have experienced a traumatic
accident, medical emergency, serious illness, abuse, violence, war, natural
disaster, or similar tragedy.
In somatic experiencing, we learn more about how you respond to trauma
and develop a method to help you resolve the experience so you can put
it behind you instead of bottling it up. The key to this treatment is
helping clients develop mental techniques that make them feel safe and relaxed.
