What Is Psychoanalytic Therapy?

Psychoanalytic therapy is talk therapy inspired by Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis theories. It’s built on the idea that everyone has unconscious thoughts, feelings, desires, and memories. Psychoanalytic therapy aims to bring out those suppressed emotions and experiences into the light. This approach digs into how your unconscious mind shapes your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Specifically, it delves into how your past experiences, often from childhood, might be influencing your present. The main idea behind this therapy is to pinpoint the root cause of the problem and work on curing it.

How Is Psychoanalytic Therapy Used in Addiction Treatment?

Psychoanalytic therapy can be incorporated into addiction treatment to address the underlying psychological conditions or factors that contribute to addictive behaviors. It is often used to help identify the root causes of addictive patterns by exploring childhood experiences. At SoCal Detox, we believe that psychoanalytic therapy is an integral part of our multi-faceted approach to addiction treatment. Integrating psychoanalytic techniques with other evidence-based therapies and support systems enhances the effectiveness of our addiction treatment program.
