Group therapy brings a helpful dynamic to alcohol rehab. To someone who has never undergone alcohol rehabilitation, the prospect of admitting you need help can be overwhelming. Lots of conflicting emotions can arise including shame, anger, embarrassment, and apprehension. It’s not easy to overcome these feelings in order to seek treatment. This is why The Bergand Group offers intensive group therapy treatment for alcohol addiction in Baltimore County.
Group Therapy Helps
Being with other people who are going through the same process and experiencing the same emotions and physical symptoms as each other allows the group to bond together over a shared experience, which builds trust. Trust facilitates communication, and communication allows group therapy participants to more fully express their feelings in a setting where they feel comfortable. Simply knowing that other people are dealing with the same problems as you helps the group work through these problems as a whole. You may have felt that no one understood your problem with alcohol addiction, but here you’ll find people just like you who understand what it’s like, and like you, want to make a better, healthier life for themselves.
