WHAT IS GROUP THERAPY?
Group therapy sessions for our Dual Diagnosis guests and our other Addiction guests are offered 2-4 times per day depending of Level of Care and are comprised of the following: Experiential, Process, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Psychoeducational Groups, Life Skills, Journaling, Spirituality, Boundary Power and Relapse Prevention.
THE GROUP EXPERIENCE CAN BE A POWERFUL TOOL
Bringing a population of different backgrounds, experiences and cultures together, thereby often creating a parallel process within the group dynamics where family of origin dynamics, life themes and issues underlying addiction and disorders, such as depression and anxiety, come to the surface. This allows for direct intervention, interpretation and integration of the individual’s experience.
The group also provides an avenue for individuals to grieve, to find resolve, to connect and to learn healthy and more adaptive ways to cope versus utilizing previously learned maladaptive and self-harming means of coping. Psychoeducation groups also provide a means to learn and empower oneself with knowledge of addiction, community support, psychological disorders and dual diagnosis.
