Group Therapy for Addiction In Pompano Beach, Florida

Group therapy for addiction recovery is an important part of healing in the process of recovery. The group is a safe and secure place to discuss feelings, fears and agitations in a supportive peer environment. Each person in the group understands the misfortunes and burdens of addiction and has made the personal choice to change. In addition, group therapy can be very helpful in identifying what other clients have experienced, facilitating a sense of togetherness. During this time, clients are asked to reveal their problems and thinking on a voluntary basis. This type of  therapy can help break down walls that have gone up through years of active addiction.

Group therapy is illuminating for therapists and helps them better appreciate their clients' struggles. Group therapy activities cover relapse prevention, triggers, behavioral patterns, and coping skills. The Simple Path Recovery treatment staff are professionally trained, licensed, experienced and sympathetic. They enable the group dynamic by applying tools such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

Simple Path Recovery groups, in which a therapist facilitates among 10-12 clients, provides multiple benefits, such as:

  • Provides feedback from each individual, allowing for greater self-insight and understanding of how his or her behavior affects others.
  • Supports the recovery of others while enhancing empathy and self-worth.
  • Reinforces the commitment to positive change for all.
  • Group members relate to one another. 
  • Strong social groups formed of like-minded members.

A supportive group under the guidance of an experienced therapist challenges the individual to be honest and confront delusions and fears. Group members often develop a sense of responsibility to one another, providing strength in unity and instilling the courage to change.

Types of Group Therapy for Addiction

Addiction treatment professionals utilize a range of group treatment models to meet client needs during the partial hospitalization and Intensive outpatient phase of rehab. A blend of group goals and approach is the primary way to define the types of groups used. Below are the most common therapy models that are effective for addiction treatment:

  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Skills development groups
  • Cognitive behavioral groups
  • Support groups
  • Process groups

Each of the styles has something distinctive to offer to group therapy clients. In fact, at the direction of a skilled professional, each can provide compelling healing experiences for clients in the group. However, each group type has to be paired with the needs of a specific client community. The goals of the client community are also an important factor for the model chosen.

There are also two specialized types of groups that stand-alone, but are used frequently by addiction therapists:

  • Relapse prevention groups
  • Expressive groups (e.g., art therapy, psychodrama)
