My Take #10 What is GroupTherapy?



Group therapy is geared toward understanding and finding a resolution to the faulty belief systems and root causes of substance abuse within the context of a group of peer. Some of the groups are gender specific to meet the specific needs of the client. Generally, individuals believe that they are the only one that has been abused, neglected or mistreated.  When they talk about the issues among peers and with trained therapists, they are able to see and hear how others in the “same program” are resolving issues.  This allows the client to give and receive peer support while simultaneously knowing that they are not alone, thereby helping to alleviate feelings of guilt and worthlessness. Group  sessions are facilitated by a licensed personnel.
