The techniques used can include group work, relapse prevention, Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and individual counselling to name but a few.


Drug Counselling And Talking Therapies

A manifestation of drug counselling that involves talking about your drug issues is called talking therapy. In this, reasons for your drug use may be included but you may as well focus on the ways to resist urge to take drugs or to achieve other goals you aspire to, but at the end it can be a mixture of all of these. CBT and MET are well-known therapies, but there are many other types which can be used for assisting with drug problems. It dependent upon the situation that along with individual therapy, we also offer you group therapy and activities related to therapeutic with your spouse and family members.


What Drug Support Groups Are Available?
