Every person is different, which means that there is no one-size-fits-all process of addiction treatment. This is why it’s so critical to implement an individualized approach to each client. Eclectic therapy is an integrative form of psychotherapy that adapts to the specific needs, goals, and issues of each specific client.
An eclectic therapist uses a range of proven treatment methods to create a custom combination of therapeutic tools for each client and their particular situation. While it may seem unstructured at first, the therapist is actually trying out different methods to see what works best for each person before creating a consistent plan. Since this type of psychotherapy draws on different types of therapy, it works best for those who are suffering from more than one type of issue.
