Group Therapy Treatment Drug Alcohol Rehab South Africa

Group sessions are run on a daily basis focusing on interpersonal relationships and systemic processes.

They allow each person to learn from the group, and to develop new interpersonal skills, not easily acquired when struggling with substance dependency.

These not only facilitate recovery during the addiction treatment process but can help the individual integrate back into society once they have left the Centre.

Benefits of Group Therapy in Addiction Treatment

  • Provides positive peer support and pressure to abstain from abusing substances.
  • Groups help to reduce the sense of isolation that most people who have substance abuse disorders experience.
  • Instil hope, a sense that “If he can make it, so can I.”
  • Groups often support and provide encouragement to one another outside the group setting.
  • Provide an environment where people who abuse substances can witness the recovery of others.
  • Help addicted members learn to cope with their substance abuse and other problems by allowing them to see how others deal with similar problems.
  • Provide useful information to clients who are new to substance abuse recovery.
  • Groups provide feedback concerning the values and abilities of other group members.
  • Groups offer family‐like experiences.
  • Encourage, coach, support, and reinforce as members undertake difficult or anxiety‐provoking tasks.
  • Groups offer members the opportunity to learn or relearn the social skills they need to cope with everyday life instead of resorting to substance abuse.
  • Create an environment where substance abuse and other harmful behaviours can be effectively confronted by individual members. 
  • Groups enable a single treatment professional to help a number of clients at the same time.
  • Add needed structure and discipline to the lives of people with substance abuse disorders, who often enter treatment with their lives in chaos.

People who experience this co-occurrence will face a very unique set challenges throughout the recovery process.

While recovery related therapy involves different therapies which facilitate recovery, occupational therapy in particular is an extremely important element.

Managing stress during addiction recovery

[Title]

Recovering from addiction comes with many ups and downs, but the rewards of a sober life are truly immeasurable.

Choosing a sober life will bring as many blessings as it will challenges. The key is to keep your eye on the ball every step of the way and avoid anything and anyone who may trigger the desire to turn to drugs or alcohol.

Sugar addiction – Just how addictive is sugar and what are the effects?

[Title]

Although there are several forms of food addiction, sugar addiction is by far the most common. To make matters worse, sugar is found in almost everything we eat.

The sad reality is that we are often unwittingly consuming high amounts of sugar every single day. This is because food manufacturers are using it as part of their ingredients, even in foods we don’t consider sweet.
