One of the primary components of therapy at Addiction Rehab Toronto are the individual counseling sessions. Each client has an initial meeting with our clinical supervisor who gains a comprehensive understanding of each person’s unique story. Then, a primary counsellor is assigned based on the information shared. The primary counsellors at Addiction Rehab Toronto each have diverse backgrounds with regards to life experiences, education and training and because of this, we can create a positive therapeutic match between staff and client. Individual counseling sessions occur three times per week, twice with the primary counsellor and once with our psychotherapist. The first individual therapy session is often utilized for rapport building and gaining a better understanding of the underlying issues that have lead to the client’s addiction. After this initial session, the primary counselor works in collaboration with the clinical team to create a comprehensive treatment plan. Exploration of self, from bio-psycho-social perspective is often neglected when in active addiction. Within individual sessions, the client is given the opportunity to express and understand their emotions and cognitions as they relate to their recovery at Addiction Rehab Toronto.
