The Sweeping Benefits of Group Therapy in Harford County

Group Therapy In Baltimore

Group therapy takes on the same challenges as individual therapy but in a group setting. The group can range in size but typically includes two or more people interacting with a single medical professional. Battling addiction can be a very isolating experience. Friends and family can support the recovering individual, but they might still feel that no one understands what they’re going through. Group therapy brings people who are battling the same problems together. Participants can lean on each other, challenge one another, and learn from each other’s mistakes and past experiences. Typically, group therapy is most beneficial during the early recovery process. Group therapy in Harford County is available at the Bergand Group for individuals battling with substance abuse addictions.

What Can Patients Expect From a Group Therapy Session?

There are five main models to group therapy: the psychoeducational model, the skill development model, the support group model, the cognitive-behavioral group model, and the group psychotherapy model. Each format has different goals it looks to accomplish. However, no matter the model of group therapy, the group setting is always used to benefit each individual. People within the group hold each other accountable, share tips or mistakes, and support one another. For a recovering addict, this may be one of the few situations during the recovery process where the individual doesn’t feel judged or ashamed.

What are the Benefits of Group Therapy Versus Individual Therapy

There are many advantages to group therapy. The primary benefit comes from something called the principle of universality. People feel comforted knowing that they are going through a shared experience and that they’re not alone.

A focus of group therapy is the comfort received from the other members. Although, something that is just as important is the feeling of being able to help others. When patients can lend a supporting hand to the other members, it can build their confidence and self-esteem.

Group therapy also allows patients to be challenged in a safe environment. To be told that they’re not doing something right from a therapist or a friend can, at times, feel condescending. However, when an individual is called out on their actions by someone battling the same issues, they can’t hide behind excuses.

Lastly, group therapy allows patients to see there is a light at the end of the tunnel. To witness other people going through the same struggle but maintaining their sobriety can be uplifting and motivating.
