Group Therapy for Substance Abuse Treatment

Besides medication management and other therapies, group therapy is an indispensable element of effective substance abuse treatment. Avatar’s group therapy aims at creating a healthy discussion environment promoting addiction recovery. Our group therapy sessions consist of educational groups, skills development groups, cognitive-behavioral groups, and support groups. Many individuals enter rehab with a history of failed attempts; our diverse group therapy approach helps ensure this time around, the result is different. We also assist with aftercare planning and support groups to help you remain active in recovery.

What is Group Therapy?

Addiction isolates lives, and hence group therapy serves as a significant tool to deal with addictions. Under the supervision of a trained therapist, we establish an effective therapeutic setting, where patients can ask questions and be involved in group discussions.

We implement group therapy as part of our after-care planning programs. As one of the leading rehab centers in NJ, Avatar’s group therapy sessions provide a strong sense of belonging and community, which is beneficial for a speedy and healthy recovery from addiction.

Benefits of Group Therapy

In group therapy sessions, people share their unpleasant and painful experiences with a non-judgemental audience that wholeheartedly accepts the moral sides of the stories.

  • A genuine improvement in inter-personal communication and the formation of different perspectives, observations, and feedback
  • Recovering addicts learn to take constructive criticism positively and change themselves for the better.
  • People learn healthy coping skills that prevent relapses while dealing with challenges post-treatment.

Avatar utilizes various problem-focused groups including:

  • Skill Development Groups
  • Gender-Specific Groups
  • Support Groups
  • Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy Groups

How effective are group therapies?

The main aim of group therapy is to offer mutual support & build self-confidence, which helps people in coping with the difficult challenges they endure while going through the detoxification process.

Gender-specific groups encourage people to open up about their issues to those coming from similar backgrounds. Gender-specific groups are formed at Avatar based on various factors like sex, gender, family backgrounds, etc. Clubbing patients from similar settings is a productive approach to instill confidence and comfort throughout the detox process.

In support groups, the group leader is responsible for creating a non-judgmental environment for recovering addicts where they can share their problems & openly ask for advice from their peers.

Whatever the specialty of each group may be, the prime focus of Group therapy is to make people aware of the intensity of their substance abuse, its consequences, and the scope of improvement related to each addiction. Through group therapies, recovering addicts will be educated on several psychological factors that lead to addiction and relapses.
