Hypnotherapy and Substance Abuse Treatment, Increasing the Odds of a Successful Recovery

Hypnotherapy Offers Options for Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance abuse has sadly become a common topic of conversation in the media, as the recent opioid epidemic has torn across the nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 700,000 people died from drug overdose between 1999 and 2017. And around 31 million people have a drug use disorder, according to the World Health Organization. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of altered awareness where the subconscious mind of a willing subject is open to accepting beneficial suggestions that have been given to it. By using this approach to suggest healthier habits, hypnotherapy can supplement traditional substance abuse treatment methods to successfully treat the many challenging symptoms of addiction.

Mitigate Your Withdrawal Symptoms

Withdrawal is one of the most difficult aspects of substance abuse recovery. Not only are withdrawal symptoms physically grueling, they are very emotionally strenuous as well. This is often the reason people postpone sobriety or relapse back into using. Hypnotherapy, however, can calm the mind and shift your focus away from uncomfortable side effects. Doing this can alleviate the severity of these symptoms to make them more manageable.

Improve Your Mental Health

Substance abuse recovery is a lifelong journey that is often accompanied by additional mental health complications, such as depression and anxiety. Treating these additional conditions using hypnotherapy can allow an individual to focus more on their treatment and recovery. Hypnotherapy is one of the only substance abuse treatment methods that can address mental health issues and addiction symptoms at the same time.

Alter Your Behaviors

Hypnotherapy is frequently used to break the pattern of addictive behaviors by addressing the unconscious habits that are often so deeply rooted. By creating negative associations with the abused substance in the unconscious mind (e.g. establishing a fear of needles, or convincing the client that a substance will make them nauseous), hypnotherapists can help interrupt the cycle of dependence that entraps so many people.
