Group Therapy for Addiction
Group therapy in addiction recovery is an important part of healing in the process of recovery. The group is a safe place to discuss feelings, fears and agitations in a non-threatening environment. Each person in the group understands the misfortunes and burdens of addiction and has made the personal choice to change. Group Therapy proves to be very helpful in identifying what other clients have experienced and helps a client understand they are not alone. This helps clients to voluntarily reveal their problems and thinking and assists in breaking down walls that have gone up through years of active addiction.
Group therapy is illuminating for therapists in a way that better appreciates their clients struggles. Group therapy activities will cover relapse prevention, triggers, behavioral patterns, and coping skills.
