Types of Group Therapy That We Offer
At its core, group therapy is similar to individual therapy. The only difference is that you are learning from others instead of engaging one-on-one with your therapist. As with individual therapy, there are different types of therapies that you can participate in, such as:
One of the most vital elements in the early stages of your recovery is structure. You will find it in almost every aspect of your life, including group therapy. A structured session includes a group that is led by a licensed and experienced therapist. Your session will consist of a theme in which the therapist guides everyone through the discussion.
Self-help groups, or support groups, are composed of different people coming together and sharing their thoughts and feelings. Support groups are self-run and often do not have an agenda. People in the group are free to talk and listen and provide mutual support. Self-help groups are available long after you have completed rehab.
Interpersonal Group Therapy
Our group therapy program offers interpersonal group psychotherapy (IGP) as a way to help you develop healthy relationships with others through addiction treatment center programs. IGP helps everyone focus on the here and now, establishes a cohesive spirit, and teaches you to interact with others more positively. If addiction is an attachment disorder, interpersonal group therapy helps you find a way to reconnect.
Cognitive Therapy for Groups
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a primary form of individual addiction treatment therapy. It is also highly effective in helping people in group settings. By working together, you learn how to identify negative thoughts, emotions, or behaviors and replace them with more positive thoughts and behaviors. Group therapy is based on the cognitive model of treatment.
What Can You Expect During Group Therapy?
Group therapy can be far more intimidating than individual therapy at first. Walking into a room full of people can kill your motivation, as you are no longer willing to share your thoughts and feelings. However, over time, you will learn to open up and even come to appreciate your group. There is a good chance that you will form strong bonds with others who provide strength and support.
You can expect the following during group therapy:
- Support from others who understand what you are going through
- Accountability to help you stay on the right track
- Improvement in social skills and relationship building
- Opportunity to encourage and help others on the path to recovery
- Long-term recovery through support groups/self-help groups
Our therapy program allows you to see addiction through someone else’s eyes while learning valuable insights from those around you. The group therapy program is part of your ongoing treatment through detox, rehab, and aftercare.
