Do you fear group therapy in rehab treatment? If you do, you certainly are not alone. Many people feel the same way before their first session. But after getting started, the group becomes something you enjoy and look forward to attending. Later in recovery, you actually find yourself reflecting positively on these therapy sessions where some of your most significant changes took place. A group therapy and individual therapy program make up the foundation of addiction treatment. It’s vital to learn what each approach entails and what to expect from treatment.

What Is Group Therapy?

group therapyYour group therapy program at Sunflower Wellness Retreat involves meeting regularly with your peers in treatment. This in-rehab group therapy may seem much like other recovery support groups at first. But here, your group sessions combine with an individual therapy program as part of your custom treatment plan.

Group therapy usually involves eight to 12 of your peers under the guidance of a licensed or certified counselor. The therapist sets goals for each session, directing the group but not controlling its discussions. You learn healthy communication in these sessions, regaining your ability to take cues from others as they communicate. You and your peers start supporting each other and even develop tight bonds over time that last beyond rehab treatment.

In this supportive environment, you explore subjects presented by the therapist. Some sessions involve focusing on coping skills and life skills training. However, not all of these sessions occur in a classroom environment with chairs pulled into a circle like you may see on TV. Some of your group therapy program actually takes place during fun activities and recreational pursuits.

Your group therapy program opens your mind to recovery and a better life. It forms a foundation for building healthier relationships outside of rehab. It teaches you so much about yourself that you miss the group environment when you return home. At home, you can enroll in community recovery support groups to extend your learning, build a support system at home, and continue standing strong in recovery.
