Group therapy is a powerful tool for treating substance use as well as problems that commonly accompany it, such as depression, isolation, and shame. The sessions capitalize on the social reinforcement offered by peer discussions and help promote substance-free lifestyles. Research shows that when group therapy is offered in conjunction with individualized counseling, positive outcomes are achieved.
The goal of group counseling at Newsong Recovery is to offer positive peer support, reduce isolation, enable members to witness recovery, help members learn coping skills, and draw members into a culture of recovery.
Treatment professionals employ a variety of group treatment models to meet residents’ needs during the process of recovery. Each of the models has something unique to offer to certain populations, and, in the hands of our skilled leaders, each can provide powerful therapeutic experiences for group members. Common therapies used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Psychoeducational groups
● Skills development groups
● Cognitive-behavioral/problem-solving groups
● Support groups
● Interpersonal process groups
To create a successful outcome, group counseling will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
Newsong Recovery’s group counseling program is closely supervised by a team of professionals with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to treat the whole person, not just their substance use.
At Newsong Recovery, your residential treatment will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective group counseling services based on your substance use and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems as well as your age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
Individuals progress through treatment at various rates, so there is no predetermined length of treatment. Generally, participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness. Treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive outcomes.
