Intensive Group Therapy Brings People Together

Intensive Group Therapy - The Bergand Group

The difference between intensive group therapy and other forms of treatment for addiction is that this one operates under a different kind of dynamic. The group can learn together, challenge each other, and support each other in their recoveries. This can make all the difference within treatment for addiction, particularly considering a group’s ability to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation that often accompany an addiction.

What Comprises Intensive Group Therapy?

The best treatment centers understand the differing needs of individuals within addiction. They are able to offer specific programs in varying formats, adapting the kind of treatment offered to the patient’s unique needs. One such program is intensive group therapy in which there are different types of experiences available, described below.

Some of these offerings include psychoeducational programs, ones in which the group members learn more about the biology and physical effects of substance abuse and also how it affects the other people in their lives. They are also aided in developing skills that can help them to get back onto their feet following the therapy. “This includes identifying situational and environmental triggers that can cause cravings to use, and how to avoid these triggers, and confront them if they are unable to be avoided.” The group setting provides a more comfortable environment for them to share their experiences, how they came to be there, and what their hopes for the future are, if they choose to divulge those things.

Of course, since those in intensive group therapy are all there for a common purpose, there is a sense of community. They can offer each other the kind of support that only comes with a personal understanding of the struggles associated with an addiction. These individual experiences are particularly useful in that they can offer their advice to others who haven’t yet conquered certain roadblocks in how they, personally, overcame those challenges.

Intensive group therapy is meant to bring people together for a united cause. Though they each have their own recovery goals and have come from different places, the fact remains that they are in this one setting, working together for a healthier future. It is meant to be an environment of positivity when that hope may not be found elsewhere. They can see others’ successes and recoveries and find strength in the possibilities for their own future. It’s no wonder why this is such a popular option for many of the people who wish to overcome their issues of substance abuse.

It should also be understood that this format is not for everyone and that’s okay. Some people function more comfortably in an individual therapy session, one on one with a counselor or professional. The way that an addiction treatment center becomes most effective across the board is when it understands the importance of these individuals’ differences and offers varied solutions to reach that population. Speaking with a specialist is the best way to find that ideal solution; once you detail your situation to him or her and explain your goals, you can most easily find a path to get there.

The best way to reach those goals that you set for yourself is to become informed about the challenges you may face while you’re recovering; to learn more about intensive group therapy and similar treatments for addiction, get in touch with The Bergand Group.
