Group Therapy

Group therapy sessions are an important part of drug and alcohol treatment. They are equally as important as individual therapy and this is the reason why daily group therapy sessions are a core part of treatment at Addiction Recovery Institute Of America.

Group therapy sessions are designed to allow the clients to learn and grow from and with each other in a safe, supportive environment. These sessions are run by a clinician or group facilitator. At Addiction Recovery Institute Of America, we keep our group sessions small and intimate so that clients form a working bond within the group which is essential for recovery.

Group facilitators allow the clients to be open, speak frankly and support each other. Having a group that works well together within the therapy setting makes a significant difference during the course of substance abuse treatment.

Group session topics and group schedules vary daily. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Communication
  • Relapse prevention
  • Relationships
  • Anxiety
  • Psycho-education
  • Co-occurring disorders / comorbidity
  • Grief/loss
  • Trauma
  • Anger management
  • Spirituality
  • Self-esteem
  • Gender

Our staff helps determine which group sessions you will benefit from most, putting you on the most successful track for long term recovery.

Our belief is that although group sessions may be intimidating at first, you will find them to be the most supportive part of your journey in forming healthy relationships and having open lines of communication to rebuild your life.
