For those in recovery, having a strong network of support is invaluable. Addiction can be isolating. If you’ve struggled with alcohol or drug abuse in the past, you might feel as though no one else can understand your unique experiences. However, at Clearhaven Recovery, we incorporate group therapy into all of our treatment programs. During these sessions, you’ll be able to discuss your experiences with others in recovery under the guidance of a therapist. You’ll talk through challenges, celebrate successes, and find the support you need for your journey.

Our group therapy for addiction in Waltham is just part of the comprehensive treatment plans we create for each participant. Medication, individual therapy, and family therapy can also help you achieve sustainable recovery.

Why Is Group Therapy Part of Treatment?

Group therapy can seem intimidating at first. You might be worried about judgment from others or feel like you’re not at a place where you feel comfortable opening up about your experiences. However, this approach to treatment can be incredibly effective in promoting positive growth.

We incorporate group therapy into all of our treatment programs, from our partial hospitalization program to day and night intensive outpatient programs. This treatment option is beneficial for several reasons:

  • You’ll spend more time working with a therapist than would be possible with just individual sessions
  • You’ll receive support and encouragement from your peers in recovery
  • You’ll better understand how addiction works and what to expect in sobriety
  • You’ll gain perspective by listening to the stories of others

Group therapy is always accompanied by individual therapy sessions and weekly meetings with our master level clinician. Medication-assisted treatment might also help some of our participants maintain sobriety and focus on their recovery.

What to Expect in Group Therapy

It’s normal to feel apprehensive before starting group therapy. Addiction is isolating, and it’s easy to feel like no one will understand your experiences. However, our goal is for each of our participants to feel safe, comfortable, and supported during group therapy.

We’ll never force you to share. However, it’s likely that after listening to your therapist and to your peers in recovery, you’ll feel safe in your group. Sharing your story can help others as well as yourself. You’ll begin to understand the roots of addiction and how you can address its underlying causes.

In some sessions, your therapist will ask questions to help shape the discussion. In others, you might spend time celebrating successes in recovery or working through challenges. Every session is a chance for you to develop the healthy coping skills you need for lifelong recovery.
