What Is Group Therapy For Addiction and Mental Health?
As the name suggests, group therapy is a therapy that happens with others. Group therapy may sound awkward or overwhelming for many clients, especially in early recovery. At Insight Recovery Center, our intimate clinic provides small group therapy sessions that allow clients to connect to themselves and one another through each step of alcohol or drug addiction recovery.
Group therapy helps clients deepen their understanding of their trauma history, behaviors, substance use, and mental health. Many clients begin to see their experiences in a new light. Group therapy sessions differ based on clients’ needs, making it a highly adaptable approach to addiction therapy. In a typical session, a group of clients with similar life experiences or mood disorders come together with one of our trauma-informed therapists. During sessions, group members share and respond to each other as the therapist moderates, offers suggestions, and guides the group through exercises. At Insight Recovery Center, our therapists use a range of techniques to help clients meet their needs, improve communication, and make breakthroughs. Group therapy techniques might include:
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Yoga therapy
- Mindfulness training
Group therapy is a flexible way for clients at Insight Recovery Center to support their journey, strengthen tools from individual therapy, and prepare for life after recovery.
