There are a lot of different kinds of treatment that exist in order to address the diverse needs of patients. People who are pursuing addiction recovery in Howard County may find that group therapy is the right choice for their unique situation.

How Group Therapy Can Support Addiction Recovery in Howard County

Addiction, as with many other mental disorders, is often best treated in a group format, especially in the early recovery and treatment process. The Bergand Group provides a variety of specialized group therapy options conducted by a range of trained providers including psychiatrists, internists with Board Certification in Addiction Medicine, registered nurses, clinical social workers, and addiction counselors.

In addition to affording the same treatment opportunities as individual therapy (such as cognitive-behavioral treatment), the group setting introduces a new dynamic into addiction treatment and gives people who are going through the same process the opportunity to learn together, challenge each other, and support each other in their recoveries.

Within what is known as the “support group model,” individuals recovering from addiction are given a forum in which they can support each other to help everyone through the recovery process. The group uses the fact that they have all gone through a similar experience to form a bond that strengthens the group, which in turn gives more weight to the support they give to each other. The support group also provides a place where excuses for poor performance can be challenged, and those who once made such excuses can offer suggestions as to how to overcome them.
