Group therapy is one of the core treatments we offer clients at Sierra Sage Recovery Services. It is a program where individuals come together usually as least three times a week for up to three hours to describe and discuss issues with substance use disorder. Group treatment provides an environment of trust and confidentiality where clients can share experiences, process their emotions, express their thoughts and feelings, and heal from the disease of addiction.
The two most significant benefits of group therapy are learning how to deal with triggers and cravings and developing a support network that can make life after treatment easier. Addiction is a complex disease. It has both physical and psychological aspects. For individuals to heal, they need to not only address the physical side, such as managing and overcoming withdrawal symptoms but also the emotional and mental aspects. Triggers are the things that cause an intense craving to arise in someone dependent upon drugs or alcohol. They can be a person, a place, a situation, or even a sight or a smell.
When an individual encounters something triggering, they feel an intense craving to use. Overcoming this mental and emotional barrier can be a challenge. In group therapy, individuals share what they’ve learned about their triggers, work to identify what does trigger them, and then discuss how they have succeeded or failed to deal with them. This gives everyone involved a deep understanding of themselves and others as well as hope in how best to tackle their issues.
Within a group, individuals can build bonds with their peers, knowing that those around them have a real and deep understanding of what dependency feels like. For many, this enhances their recovery. It also gives them a chance to create a new support system for then they successfully complete addiction treatment.
