Group therapy is an umbrella term for multiple different kinds of therapy that take place in a group setting. Rather than a free-flowing conversation, group therapy is led by a trained leader. Their job is to prompt discussion, create a safe space for members and encourage expression.
Understanding that they are not alone in their experiences, participants will be more willing to share their own journey with others. The members of the group can develop bonds with each other as they continue working towards their collective goal of a happier, healthier, and sustainable life. This process also allows for the participants to learn to trust each other, as many substance use disorders result in a lack of trust, even with family members and loved ones.
Our group therapy professionals are trained to pick up on some of the subconscious actions of the participants, and those actions can be telling as to their life experiences and problems with substance abuse. This can also lead to more detailed insights being revealed later on in one on one therapy sessions therefore allowing inner conflicts to be worked through.
