Closed Group Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Recovery

Unlike other treatment programs, our treatment groups are closed. In other words, no new patients will be admitted into the group once the group is formed. Our approach using Closed Group Therapy fosters trust, accountability and friendship. Many of our clients remain friends as a result of a lasting bond that is created during group experiences. The closed group is often the first strong support system for our clients beginning the process of recovery.

Benefits of Closed Group Therapy

  1. Accountability – One of the biggest benefits of Closed Group Therapy is the accountability a group setting provides. Individuals are encouraged to share their successes and setbacks. Members of the group offer encouragement and support.
  2. Be a part of something bigger – In treating drug and alcohol abuse, people who engage in group therapy can feel like they are connected to something bigger than themselves. Members of the group can feel like part of a team. They feel special and valued.
  3. Learn from others – Closed Group Therapy allows members to learn from the experiences of others. Members are able to look objectively at mistakes and successes of individuals within the group.
