Group therapy is one of the most commonly practiced forms of therapy in the treatment of substance use disorders and mental health disorders. At our 7 locations, Group therapy is commonplace because it has shown to be effective due to the nature of human beings themselves, we are social creatures, born in to groups and function best when we learn how to thrive in groups.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration,
“Group therapy and addiction treatment are natural allies. One reason is that people who abuse substances often are more likely to remain abstinent and committed to recovery when treatment is provided in groups, apparently because of rewarding and therapeutic forces such as affiliation, confrontation, support, gratification, and identification. This capacity of group therapy to bond patients to treatment is an important asset because the greater the amount, quality, and duration of treatment, the better the client’s prognosis.”
About Our Group Therapy Approach
Group therapy at our facilities isn’t solely used in the treatment of substance use disorders, it’s also used in treating mental health disorders. Research has shown that group therapy is effective at treating depression, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorders. As many patients have co-occurring substance use disorders and mental health disorders, participating in groups is especially important for those seeking to overcome addiction and achieve better mental health.
Our clinical and counseling staff members have conducted thousands of group therapy sessions and they maintain over 100 years of collective experience in using group therapy as a means of helping their clients reach sobriety and positive mental health outcomes.
