Help for overcoming addiction does not have to end with intensive outpatient treatment or rehab. At Colonial Clinic, we offer relapse prevention groups for individuals who have made it past these checkpoints in the road to recovery. Our relapse prevention therapy sessions provide individuals with support, encouragement, and guidance to get back on track or keep the momentum going.
How long do these groups meet for?
Our therapy-based relapse prevention groups meet once a week for two hours and are open to men and women of all ages. These groups usually run for six months at a time, yet many people choose to continue with the group after the six months end because of the outstanding support that they receive.
What does each group consist of?
Similar to the other group therapies that we offer, our relapse prevention groups consist of up to twelve individuals and are led by professional counselors. Our relapse prevention groups are open groups and can be joined at any time.
Are these groups similar to AA?
Unlike AA meetings, our relapse prevention groups are much more personal and in-depth. Each group is run by a professional counselor, who provides regular check-ins and offers relevant topics for discussion. Individuals in our relapse prevention therapy groups also have access to a mental health counselor at least once per month in addition to their individual sessions with their relapse prevention counselor to address personal challenges and concerns.
What kinds of topics are addressed in these groups?
A variety of subjects are brought up for group-wide discussion, including the challenges, fears, and questions that arise on the road to recovery. Individuals who benefit most from our relapse prevention services are those who struggle with post-treatment life and fear relapsing as a result or have experienced a brief relapse. Our compassionate and understanding counselors, most of who are in recovery themselves, are more than qualified to help individuals navigate through recovery and post-recovery challenges.
