The Benefits of Group Therapy
At Valley, we’re seeking to change the culture of group therapy. While individual counseling seems to be highly sought after, there are numerous benefits to group addiction therapy which you should consider:
Feelings of isolation often accompany those struggling with addiction. In a group therapy setting, participants realize they are not alone as others empathize with them and share their own stories of addiction.
Those who suffer from substance abuse disorders often have no one to talk to about their problems. In a group setting among their peers, they discover the freedom to share about their problem without judgment.
Discussion centered on common addiction issues within a group setting can provide new perspectives and insights as participants hear others convey their own stories of substance abuse and provide feedback.
It’s easy for those who have issues with substance abuse to be viewed as a burden on their support structures. Group therapy adds value to participants as vital members of a caring community seeking recovery together.
Some of the most effective groups develop feelings of responsibility in each other’s progress and recovery. Accountability is often a result of the community, value, insight, and communication experienced together.
