Addiction is often best treated in a group format
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 the Baltimore and Harford County areas. Please visit the Intensive Outpatient services page for our group therapy schedule.
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. There are five group therapy models used in addiction group therapy.
