What is Group Therapy?
Group therapy brings together a small number of individuals who are going through a similar experience in a safe environment. Sessions are led by a trained group leader. Individuals have the opportunity to share personal experiences as well as listen to others in the group.
It’s normal to feel nervous during the first few group therapy sessions, but over time most people begin to feel comfortable opening up about themselves. Of course, sharing is always by choice, and individuals are only encouraged to contribute to the group conversation when they feel comfortable.
Through group therapy, individuals can learn new things about themselves, gain insight into their relationships in life, and address feelings of anxiety and isolation.
At CRC Treatment Center, we understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to substance abuse treatment and recovery. By utilizing evidence-based clinical programming, we’ve designed programs that are tailored to the individual’s needs, goals, and desires throughout their recovery process.
