** GROUP BEGINS JULY 11, 2019 ***

The good news is that you are not your addiction.
But you do need support from others to overcome it.
Sure, we can try to get clean all on our own. But the problem with doing it alone is that the positive changes you make will only be temporary.
Real recovery starts with building trust and connection with other people.
Whether we like it or not, being human means getting the support and approval of others. Not only does it feel good, it helps us feel good about ourselves.
How on earth could we stay sober otherwise?
Recovery doesn’t have to be painful.
Led by addiction and recovery therapist Emily Sussman, LCSW, our Life After Sobriety Group is all about supporting each other in early sobriety, coping with cravings and difficult emotions, becoming self-aware and resilient, and providing the support that’s so important to the recovery process.
At each session, we start with check-ins, discussing the challenges, problems, and successes we’re experiencing. From there, we focus on a specific topic that relates to the addiction and recovery process. Please note that this group is not a 12-Step meeting, but rather, a therapeutic group.
Group topics will include…
Stages of Change
What to Expect in Early Recovery
Managing Urges and Cravings
Handling Anxiety and Depression
Thoughts, Emotions, Behaviors

Understanding the Brain Chemistry of Addiction
Progression of the Disease of Addiction
Beliefs, Thoughts, Habits, Lifestyle, Destiny
