When clients come in for addiction treatment, they simply want to stay sober. The issue with addiction, is that drugs and alcohol are only a symptom of the problem. A common misconception about addiction is that once alcohol and drugs are eliminated from the picture, everything will be fine. This often is not the case. It requires both personal and group therapy for addicts to truly recover from the seemingly hopeless state that they were in.
Ebb Tide Treatment Center’s gender specific treatment facility strives to help our clients bridge the gap between treatment and recovery. This involves individual and group therapy at our centers to help clients live an incredible life. The problem is, that once you take away drugs and/or alcohol, you are still stuck with all of the reasons you drank and/or used. Whether it was your job, family, school or traumatizing events from your past, it is important to uncover these triggers, so you can acknowledge and overcome them, when you transition back into the real world.
One of the greatest lessons you will learn at Ebb Tide Treatment Centers is that although you are working on becoming a better person, it does not mean that the rest of the world will change. Addiction treatment is meant to teach you how to deal with life on life’s terms, without having to turn to alcohol and/or drugs. We provide both individual and group therapy sessions, because they each serve specific purposes that are beneficial to your personal recovery.
Every addict has a different story, which is why it is necessary to make individual therapy a part of addiction treatment. You will meet with a therapist in a one-on-one environment to discuss your personal history with drugs and/or alcohol. Ebb Tide Treatment Centers’ staff wants to provide you with a safe space, where you can feel like you are able to open up, so you can receive the best addiction treatment possible. We will help you to understand what may be triggering your cravings to drink or use, while offering you suggestions about how to overcome them.
Benefits of Group Therapy in Addiction Treatment
The most crucial part of recovery is having a support group. Many addicts and alcoholics have surrounded themselves with other people who enjoy abusing drugs or alcohol. As a recovering addict, this can be the quickest path to relapse.
In treatment, you will begin to build a support group of fellow recovering addicts, and some of these relationships will last you a lifetime. You will begin to realize that you are not alone in your struggles with addiction, and that people in recovery can rely on one another when you need help. One recovering addict and/or alcoholic helping another is one of the greatest forms of therapy a recovering addict and/or alcoholic can participate in, and is fundamental in recovery.
