What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy is a key part of quality addiction treatment and recovery from substance use disorders. These therapy sessions engage each guest in guided group discussions that promote healthy communication, self-reflection, and unique insights on the perspective of other individuals who are participating in the group.
In doing so, the women in our care join in collaborative therapeutic efforts, offering comfort and support as they work to overcome obstacles, process unresolved trauma, and instill healthy coping skills to strengthen their resolve in recovery. As they participate in female-related group discussions, our guests become a unified front focused on motivating one another to continue striving toward a life of joy and fulfillment in recovery.

Group therapists promote healthy discord through thought-provoking questions that encourage guests to share their unique perspectives and actively listen to others who choose to share. As each guest engages in group therapy, they learn how to identify the situations that trigger their cravings and brainstorm and discussion ideas on how to avoid stressful events with peer input. Additionally, the women in our groups work together to find the best ways to implement adaptive coping skills into their routine to assist in combatting cravings.
Group sessions are typically an hour long, and include but are not limited to: 12-step oriented groups, relapse prevention techniques, problem solving skills, gender specific groups, trauma, and expressive therapy group. Guests are encouraged to be open and honest with others, allowing them to get the most out of the group setting.
