Our Individual Therapy in Nashville is designed to provide personalized care tailored to meet your specific needs. Our experienced therapists are dedicated to helping you achieve lasting recovery and a healthier, more fulfilling life. At Nashville Treatment Solutions, we understand that every individual’s journey to recovery is unique.

What is Individual Therapy?

Individual therapy, also known as one-on-one therapy, is a collaborative process between a therapist and a client. This form of therapy focuses on the individual’s unique experiences, challenges, and goals. It allows for a safe, confidential space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with the guidance of a professional therapist.

Types of Individual Therapy We Provide in Nashville

At Nashville Treatment Solutions, we offer a variety of individual therapy modalities to address diverse needs:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A structured, goal-oriented approach that helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A therapy that focuses on teaching skills to manage emotions, reduce self-destructive behaviors, and improve relationships.
  • Trauma-Focused Therapy: Specialized therapy for individuals who have experienced trauma, helping them process and heal from their experiences.
  • Motivational Interviewing: A client-centered approach that enhances motivation to change by exploring and resolving ambivalence.

How We Provide Individual Therapy

We integrate individual therapy into all our treatment programs to ensure comprehensive care.

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): offers intensive therapy sessions as part of a structured day program. This level of care is ideal for individuals who require significant support but do not need 24-hour supervision. In PHP, clients participate in daily individual therapy sessions, along with group therapy and other therapeutic activities. This comprehensive approach provides a solid foundation for recovery, helping clients to address underlying issues and develop effective coping strategies.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): at Nashville Treatment Solutions provides flexible scheduling for therapy sessions, allowing clients to maintain their daily responsibilities such as work, school, or family commitments. Individual therapy is a core component of IOP, offering personalized support and guidance. Clients attend multiple therapy sessions each week, focusing on their specific goals and challenges. This program is designed to help individuals achieve stability and progress in their recovery while balancing their everyday lives.
  • Outpatient Program (OP): offers ongoing support with regular therapy sessions to help clients maintain progress and prevent relapse. This level of care is ideal for individuals who have completed higher levels of treatment or who require less intensive support. In OP, clients meet with their therapist on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to address any emerging issues, reinforce coping skills, and receive continued encouragement. This ongoing therapeutic relationship is crucial for sustaining long-term recovery and achieving personal growth.
  • Evening IOP: Our evening IOP offers the same level of care as our daytime IOP with the added flexibility to work, go to school, or manage daytime personal commitments.
    OP: Our OP (outpatient program) is a step-down level of care from our IOPs for people that still need ongoing support and treatment to support long-term recovery from meth addiction. Sessions usually are scheduled at times that best work for the individual. They can range from meeting a few times weekly to once a week, depending on their specific needs. 
  • Sober Living: For our clients who do not have a stable and supportive environment at home, we have partnered with local sober living homes to provide a safe and supportive environment for them to maintain their newly found sobriety.

What to Expect In an Individual Therapy Session?

During an individual therapy session at Nashville Treatment Solutions, you can expect a comprehensive and supportive experience designed to foster your personal growth and recovery.

Personalized Attention

Your therapy sessions will involve one-on-one interaction with a dedicated therapist who focuses solely on your specific needs and goals. This personalized attention ensures that the therapy process is tailored to address your unique challenges, whether they relate to mental health issues, substance use disorders, or other personal difficulties. Your therapist will take the time to understand your background, experiences, and aspirations to create a customized treatment plan.

Confidential Environment

We prioritize creating a safe and private setting where you can openly discuss your concerns and challenges without fear of judgment. Confidentiality is a cornerstone of our practice, ensuring that everything you share during your sessions remains private. This secure environment allows you to express yourself freely and work through sensitive issues with the assurance that your privacy is respected.

Goal Setting

A key component of individual therapy is the collaborative development of achievable goals. During your sessions, you and your therapist will identify specific objectives that you want to work towards. These goals may include improving mental health, developing coping strategies, overcoming addictive behaviors, or enhancing interpersonal relationships. Setting clear, realistic goals provides direction and motivation throughout the therapy process.

Ongoing Assessment and Feedback

Throughout the course of your therapy, your progress will be continuously monitored and assessed. Your therapist will provide regular feedback on your development, helping you stay on track with your goals. This ongoing assessment allows for adjustments to your treatment plan as needed, ensuring that you receive the most effective care.

Emotional Support and Guidance

Individual therapy sessions offer a space for emotional support as well as guidance. Your therapist will be there to listen, provide empathy, and offer constructive insights. This supportive relationship is vital for building trust and fostering a positive therapeutic experience.

Practical Tools and Strategies

Beyond the therapy sessions, we will equip you with practical tools and strategies to apply in your daily life. All together these may include coping mechanisms for managing stress, techniques for improving communication skills, and methods for maintaining sobriety. Therapy designs the skills you learn to empower you to handle challenges independently and sustain your progress long-term.

Is Individual Therapy Effective?

Individual therapy is highly effective in treating a wide range of mental health as well as substance use disorders. It provides:

  • Personalized Care: Tailored approaches that address specific issues and foster personal growth.
  • Enhanced Self-Awareness: Insight into personal patterns and behaviors, leading to better self-understanding.
