How will talk therapy prevent your daughter from going back to her dealer and buying the next fix? Can it do something that the warnings you\u2019ve been giving her for years were unable to accomplish? In fact, this type of therapy is highly effective for heroin treatment, and here\u2019s why.\r\nTalk Therapy Picks up Where Detox Leaves Off\r\nWhen she went through detoxification, your daughter learned how to break the physical hold that heroin had on her. Her body reestablished equilibrium. She learned that living without the fix is possible. In short, her body no longer tells her mind that she needs the drug to survive.\r\n\r\nBut the cravings are still there. They are one of the main reasons why women seek out rehab after detox. Heroin has a powerful hold on the mind, which typically requires psychotherapy to overcome it. And this type of treatment consists primarily of talk therapy, which gets to the \u201cwhy\u201d of the addiction.\r\nExamples of Addiction Counseling Therapies\r\nIn a rehab setting, therapists rely on a variety of approaches to help program participants overcome the craving for drugs. Examples include:\r\n\r\n \tCognitive behavioral therapy that assists clients to work through negative thought patterns and emotions\r\n \tDialectical behavioral therapy which helps women struggling with addiction to engage\u00a0in coping skills when dealing with stressors\r\n \tAnger management therapy that lets participants address the feelings behind the anger, which previously led to numbing with drugs\r\n \tTrauma therapy which explores unresolved issues in someone\u2019s background that affect current reactions to situations\r\n \tFamily therapy that helps mend fences, train family members in supportive (not enabling) behaviors and show how to regain common ground\r\n\r\nThese types of talk therapy approaches help your daughter explore the reasons why she\u2019s using. They also allow her to express past hurts that affect the choices she makes right now. It\u2019s interesting to note that many program participants learn things about themselves they didn\u2019t consciously understand. In the process, they build self-esteem as they undergo personal development that strengthens their ability to resist drug cravings.\r\nTalking is Good for Individuals with Limited Support Networks, Too\r\nYou may be your daughter\u2019s greatest cheerleader and at the forefront of her support system. But there\u2019s no getting around the fact that drug use isolates individuals to the point that they lack peer interactions. For this reason, group therapy, in particular, can have a significant positive impact on people in recovery. Some just need to get out thoughts and feelings that they\u2019ve been bottling up for years and group therapy is a great place to let go.\r\n\r\nAs they get more comfortable with expressing themselves verbally, they gain positive feedback. In a peer group setting, positive feedback helps with the formation of a positive self-image, which boosts resolve to stop using. It\u2019s fair to say that there\u2019s no true downside to talk therapy.\r\nGetting Help for Your Daughter\u2019s Heroin Addiction Today\r\nBeaches Recovery offers a gender-specific program for women with a substance abuse problem.
