Individual Therapy at California Prime

Individual Therapy is one of the most effective, impactful treatment methods for addiction recovery because it is completely customized to our individual patients, depending on the treatment they need, and the modalities that work for them. We provide a safe space for our patients to uncover their current situation with their therapist, completely free of judgment.

Because Individual Therapy provides more of a personal connection than any kind of group therapy, it allows our patients to share information, experiences and emotions, all of which are useful in helping them recover from not only addiction issues but their deeper disorders as well. Opening up about their personal traumas, disorders and mental health issues is oftentimes difficult in a group setting. Individual Therapy offers a trusting space where our patients can work on their recovery with the help of our personalized therapy sessions with therapists and medical professionals.

Some of our Individual Therapy modalities include (but not limited to):

Cognitive Behavioral TherapyDialectical Behavioral TherapyEMDR Therapy
Mindfulness TherapyTrauma and PTSD TherapyPsychoanalytic Therapy

Individual Therapy for Addiction Recovery

While California Prime creates a comprehensive treatment plan that includes several different types of therapies and treatment modalities for each of our patients, it’s the Individual Therapy sessions that get to the root of the real issues that the individual is trying to address.

Drugs, alcohol and other substances are typically used in coping with deeper emotions and experiences, whether at home, in relationships, or in society. So it’s not enough to offer detox treatments to our patients who are struggling with other challenges. Ongoing one-on-one therapy can help uncover individual triggers and formulate solutions so that they don’t need to use substances in lieu of coping mechanisms.

Benefits of Individual Therapy

What to Expect in Individual Therapy Sessions

Although the first individual therapy session may induce nervousness, our therapists work with each client to understand their patient history, family history, treatment preferences, struggles and challenges. The individual can discuss their goals for recovery and means to achieve them.

Our individual therapy sessions are completely confidential and will not be shared even with family members or partners, unless with the patient’s approval.

Each session may end with follow up or take away items for the patient to work on. Each session may also include suggestions on what to work on in the upcoming sessions. This is deep inner work that ultimately allows each of our clients to better equip themselves on their road to recovery.

Stephen Carmel

Founder & CEO

I began my journey to recovery back in 2011 when I moved to California from New York.Along wiht my recovery and beginning a new way of life,I began to develop a heart for others struffling with sobriety.My journey to California was filled with many trials and lessons learned, but most of all, personal growht.I truly believe i would not have found success if I didn’t come to California.I started CPR as a way to work with people in recovery on a daily basis and it evolved into something much more beautiful. I have also come to realize that my own personal happiness and recovery depends on being involved in the lives of people in recovery. Helping others recover is a cornerstone of many 12 step programs, as it is here. Giving back to those still suffering, is the only way not to lose what you have gained. It is the paradox that we live by every day.
