No one understands the challenges of addiction quite like an addict. That’s why group therapy can be such a powerful tool in the fight against addiction. Our West Palm Beach detox facility offers compassionate, comprehensive group therapy that arms you with the skills you need to fight the battle of your life—the battle against addiction.
Human beings are naturally social people. That’s why spending time with others feels good. Group therapy is more than just a chance to socialize. It’s one of the most effective ways to fight addiction, particularly in the early stages when detox saps so much of an addict’s energy and motivation.
Addiction is a disease that affects both the brain and body. This means that comprehensive treatment must address the needs of both. Nutritional support, medical care, and detox assistance can help your body adjust to life without drugs or alcohol. Without adequate support for your mind, however, recovering from addiction will prove more challenging.
About half of people with an addiction have an underlying mental illness such as depression and anxiety. For these people in recovery, mental health treatment is especially important because it offers healthy coping tools that don’t involve drugs and alcohol.
Even if you don’t have a mental illness, though, therapy can be a powerful tool for fighting addiction. Therapy teaches you the skills you need to cope with stress and relationship problems. It offers insight into how and why you became an addict, and which specific situations are likely to trigger further drug and alcohol abuse.
Addiction recovery is hard. So why not equip yourself with the tools you need to recover more quickly and more completely? Therapy is your best friend in the fight for sobriety.
Group therapy offers all of the benefits of individual therapy, and then some. In addition to getting help to understand your thoughts and feelings, you’ll also:
In group therapy, you’ll get near-constant reassurance that you’re not alone. The world can be a lonely place for addicts. They may feel stigmatized and guilty. Group therapy reminds you that addiction is a disease and a disease from which many people suffer. Addiction thrives on stigma because stigma promotes guilt and secrecy. By fighting this stigma, group therapy removes the cover of darkness from your addiction.
It’s normal to be a little reluctant to try group therapy. After all, you’re probably used to concealing your addiction, accustomed to feeling ashamed of something that’s really not your fault. No one wants to risk airing their dirty laundry to the entire world.
We find that new clients are often reluctant to try therapy at all. They’re even more reluctant to give group therapy a shot. Yet when they’re willing to break out of their comfort zone, they quickly realize the benefits of therapy in a group setting. Consider the following:
Addiction is a challenging, complicated disease. And like other diseases, it requires treatment that attacks it at its root, and from many angles.
