We encourage you to speak out about your problems and interact with people faced with addiction. 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, 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 your outcomes become!
Group topics span psychosocial topics such as understanding the addictive mind, addressing addict behaviors, 12-Step and sponsorship, parenting, anger management and other topics. Group therapy allows each client to discuss anger and emotional coping, share honesty letters, hear the experiences of other addicts and explore re-entry options to their family and sober support systems.
