There’s a good reason recovery is referred to as a “we” program…
(And not a “me” program!)
Being alone in our own heads — where all our confusion, conflict, and cravings hang out —can make us feel like we’re going crazy.
Without the benefit of perspective, we can get blinded into making the same bad choices, over and over again. For that very reason, group therapy has long been considered the most effective treatment for addiction recovery.
You’ll need plenty of guidance and encouragement on your recovery journey.
Not just from a therapist, but also from a supportive, nonjudgmental community that knows all the issues you’re struggling with on a first-hand basis.
Making meaningful connections with other people, who can help you gain confidence and support you unconditionally, is what both mental health professionals and 12-Step programs have long recognized is the true key to recovery.
Even people who describe themselves as introverted or antisocial find that they relate amazingly well with the other group members. Not only are we all facing similar challenges, we can also help motivate each other from week to week, as well as provide critical perspective on each other’s issues.
It’s generally easier to trust and open up to the “strangers” in group…
…than it is to friends or family in our day-to-day lives.
There’s zero judgment — just support.
I offer open enrollment to all of my groups, since they function best with a combination of newer and more experienced members.

Outpatient addictions treatment is not appropriate for individuals currently experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms and/or physical and psychological effects as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. They will require medical supervision and possible detoxification treatment. A consultation is required to see if group therapy is the best fit for your needs.
