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.

The sad reality is that there is a degree of shame that is associated with being sober, because of the stigma attached to being an addict.

However, being sober is something that every recovered addict should be proud of because it means that you have overcome one of the hardest obstacles you will ever face.
