What is group therapy for addiction?

Group therapy for addiction is one of the treatments for substance use disorders. Even when you’re no longer physically dependent on drugs or alcohol, the social and psychological effects of an addiction increase risk of relapse.

Magnolia Medical Group offers group therapy for addiction to provide the support and resources to recover and maintain sobriety. Any patient of the clinic can participate in group therapy following an individual intake with one of the licensed substance use counselors. 

Why should I consider group therapy for addiction?

You should consider group therapy for addiction because it supports your recovery and may reduce the risk of relapse. Some of the benefits of group therapy for addiction include:

  • Decreasing your feelings of isolation
  • Removing the stigma associated with addiction
  • Expanding your social support
  • Practicing your coping strategies
  • Working on your communication and people skills

Adding group therapy to your other addiction treatments, such as individual counseling and medication-assisted treatment (MAT), also boosts optimism and self-worth.
