Group Addiction Therapy
In Group therapy sessions, clients recognize that many share their experiences and feelings, which helps to remove the sense of isolation and raise self-esteem. Group sessions encourage clients to help each other. They share coping skills and support one another. The group setting provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals to improve interpersonal behavior, communications, and social skills. Clients will share experiences and difficult situations that stimulate their addictive tendencies. In doing so, they learn how to deal with them. Group therapy is another powerful modality Tranquility Woods offers in its fully integrated program. Group sessions include topics such as grief, loss, anger, stress, and shame.
