At Ardu Recovery Center, we strongly believe that no one has to fight alone against addiction. Along with our staff, your fellow residents can provide just as much support. No one else understands quite as well what you are going through as those in treatment with you. This is why group therapy has always been an important part of addiction treatment programs.
Group Therapy Program
Similar to individual therapy, a professional therapist leads group therapy sessions. The role of the therapist is to guide thoughtful discussion and grant perspective. Therefore, much of the discussion in these group sessions involve residents sharing personal stories and feelings.
Unlike individual therapy, group therapy doesn’t focus on diving deep into an individual’s specific triggers and behaviors. Instead, group therapy works to create bonds with fellow residents dealing with the same issues. Also, it helps to remove feelings of isolation. This can create a sense of comradery that can be beneficial in the recovery process. Group therapy can show you that you’re fighting alone.
Constant support and care is the point of inpatient addiction treatment, and a group therapy program is a useful part of that treatment. Group counseling also reduces the sense of isolation and loneliness that many on their recovery journey may experience. This is important, as studies show that when a person feels personally supported by their community, their morale and overall happiness improves.
Group therapy creates an environment of open discussion to work through difficulties with a group of people who understand what you are going through. It offers unwavering support and a renewed sense of self-worth.
Building a Community
The goal of addiction therapy services is the ability to leave the rehab center return to your life and community as seamlessly as possible. The group therapy program at Ardu Recovery Center facilitates a community for our residents.
Group counseling creates an understanding and empathy that gives our residents the ability to transition when leaving rehab successfully. By creating a community among our residents, they have a support system they can rely on once they leave treatment.
While we treat the physical symptoms of your addiction, we use our group therapy program to practice the idea of building a community. This helps to build a sense of worth and validation in our residents who often struggle with issues of self-esteem when entering treatment. This way, we can heal our residents’ minds and spirits as we mend their bodies.
Rebuilding Your Life
All rehab treatments are about creating a new life for yourself, and group therapy is an important part of this goal. It gives residents resources and confidence in their own self-worth. These characteristics give our residents the advantage they need to make sure they can return to their old lives stronger than ever before.
