Hypnotherapy For Substance Abuse

If someone you know is facing struggles with substance abuse, it’s not something that anyone should take lightly. Individuals who struggle with this issue are impacted in every aspect of their lives, including their relationships and finances. Hypnotherapy can be a great tool in the success of substance abuse treatment. Used as a holistic option and combined with other therapeutic tools, hypnotherapy can improve the long-term outcome of this issue.

Substance Abuse Affects Every Aspect of Life

The memory of human experiences has a remarkable way of controlling how the mind and body react in certain situations. Past traumas can lend to the abuse of drugs and alcohol. To understand substance abuse, you must first break down both words. Substances can stand for any use of mind-altering and harmful drinks, pills, and drugs. Often, people assume that these substances are illegal. However, many are not drugs at all. Abuse results from using particular substances in a way that the item is not intended. This abuse can be of both addictive and non-addictive substances.

How Hypnotherapy Aids In Healing

When a person is hypnotized, it is often easier and safer for them to recall any blocked memories that may be at the root of the abuse. Reframing the individual’s perspective and awareness of the situation may remove roadblocks in the healing journey. With that said, using hypnotherapy as a holistic treatment with other therapies can have benefits that include:

  • Improving Emotional Health: Any co-occurring disorders or comorbidities can be treated during a hypnotherapy session, leading to the strengthening of one’s emotional health.
  • Changing Behavior: Cyn will dive into the subconscious mind and use specific techniques to alter any ideas, thought patterns, or dangerous behaviors.
  • Decreasing Pain: This holistic treatment for substance abuse can help relieve any physical or emotional barriers that may be an obstacle to substance abuse healing.
  • Reducing Withdrawl Symptoms: Withdrawing from a substance can be uncomfortable and challenging. To help manage and reduce any symptoms that may come from withdrawing, many use hypnotherapy.

The Hypnotherapy Process

To begin the initial hypnotherapy session, clients will begin their appointment by talking with Cyn about what they are looking to heal. Once intentions and information are clear, Cyn works to start putting the individual into a hypnotic state. Once in a trance, she begins to work with the client to jumpstart healing and any necessary changes needed to reach their end goal. Cyn Severson M.A. C., Ht will use suggestive language to change the perspective specific to the area of focus for the session, in this case, substance abuse. As the session comes to an end, the process of gently transitioning back into a fully alert state begins. Before leaving, individuals can express any feelings or questions that they may have regarding the session. Most of Cyn’s clients claim that they often feel relaxed and ready for a change when leaving their sessions.
