Short-Term Focussed Therapy

for recovery 

Short-term focused therapy for addiction is a time-limited approach that is specifically designed to address addiction, substance misuse, and other addictive disorders. This form of therapy typically involves setting specific, measurable goals for the client to work towards over a period of several weeks to a few months. The primary goal of short-term focused therapy for addiction is to help clients achieve and maintain sobriety.

The therapist and client work together to identify the underlying factors that may have contributed to the addiction, such as past trauma or stressors, and develop strategies to cope with these triggers. The therapist may also work with the client to develop new coping mechanisms, relapse prevention, engagement with 12-step fellowship, building social support networks that can help to cope with cravings and urges, and to build and maintain their recovery awareness.  

Another important aspect of short-term focused therapy for addiction is helping clients improve their relationships and communication skills with their families and loved ones. Many people who struggle with addiction have strained relationships with their partners and family members. Short-term focused therapy can help clients learn how to communicate more effectively and build healthier relationships.

Sometimes, after thoughtful contemplation and working closely with the client, it may be recommended to hold meetings with family members or partners. In these meetings, I will act as a facilitator to ensure that challenging conversations can take place in a supportive and safe environment. The goal of these meetings is to promote stability during uncertain times, foster the development of a healthy support system, and build up resources for recovery.

By strengthening these connections, clients are more likely to have a support system in place to help them through difficult times. Overall, short-term focused therapy can be an effective way to address addiction, substance misuse, and other addictive disorders, and help clients achieve long-term recovery.
