Individual Therapy

Individual Counseling


One of the core philosophies at The Carter Treatment Center is based on the fact that most people’s addictions are usually caused by underlying psychological issues.

Many conventional rehab programs treat the substance abuse as the primary problem. However, at The Carter Treatment Center, we believe it’s more important to treat the underlying issues that triggered the addictive substance abuse in the first place.

Some of the more common reasons many people turn to drugs or alcohol include:

  • Inability to cope with anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor self-image
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Uncontrolled stress levels
  • Traumatic experiences or events
  • Lack of purpose or direction
  • Financial problems

Of course, the underlying factors that contribute to your own substance abuse problems are unique to you. That’s why the addiction specialists at The Carter Treatment Center focus so strongly on helping you recognize the triggers behind your self-destructive behaviors and attitudes, before working to replace those unhealthy behavior patterns with positive new coping skills for dealing with life’s stresses without the need for drugs or alcohol.


You’ll be assigned a therapist who will work with you in private sessions in a safe environment to explore the unique and complex nature of your addictive behaviors. Our psychotherapists are specifically trained to help you find positive ways to overcome those issues once and for all.

Ultimately, our aim is to help you heal the pains of your past so you can move forward to leading a healthy life free from addiction and dependency.


In order to truly end the cycle of drug or alcohol dependency once and for all, you first need to discover the psychological reasons that caused you to start using drugs or alcohol to start with. Inpatient and outpatient individual psychotherapy sessions help you to identify those triggers and then resolve those issues in a positive manner.
