Group therapy is a form of therapy in which several people come together and work closely with one or more therapists to resolve any problems they may have.
At Tulip Hill, we believe that group therapy is an integral part of treatment. Group therapy is built on camaraderie and a desire to help one another. It plays a positive role in our treatment programs and has proven to be highly effective.
At Tulip Hill, our medical professionals lead our group therapy sessions. Beneficial for people struggling with substance abuse and mental health conditions, these sessions provide a warm, accepting, and safe space for those in attendance.
During group therapy, individuals are encouraged to share their experiences and fears with the rest of the group. Not only does this enable our team of therapists to observe and assess our clients, but it provides an opportunity for them to uncover how they can best support those in need.
Additionally, group therapy allows many people to seek advice and guidance from others who know how they feel. It also provides an opportunity to learn from others.
At Tulip Hill, we offer several types of group therapy. Typically, clients are assigned a specific group therapy based on the problems they may need to address.
Below you can find out more about the five types of group therapy offered at Tulip Hill.
While group therapy and support groups provide our clients with care, it's essential to distinguish the difference between them.
Support groups, for example, help people come to terms with their current situation. In contrast, group therapy aims to uncover how people can make changes to their lives. For purposes of substance abuse treatment, we utilize group therapy as a component of our overall treatment program.
Before starting group therapy, we recommend considering the following tips:
It is also important to remember that you are not alone. Many of the other group members will be experiencing similar issues.
At Tulip Hill, group therapy is utilized to help clients fighting substance abuse disorders rebuild their interpersonal relationships and reconnect to their communities. Below, we share the many reasons that group therapy remains popular.
When a person goes through withdrawal and decides to overcome their struggles with substances, they can feel incredibly lonely. In some instances, they might become more prone to mental health disorders, such as depression.
In these situations, it is helpful to show them that they still belong to a community and that other people are walking a similar path. Our professionals believe in helping clients come out of their cocoons and feel connected to other people by placing them in a group.
When group therapy commences, our clients find a safe space to practice the skills they’ve gained in individual therapy. These groups then act as the practice field to determine how their interpersonal relationships can be managed going forward.
Another benefit of group therapy is the broad range of feedback that you receive in a typical session. After a group member has shared something, they’ll receive feedback from the therapist and other group members. Consequently, they’ll have an opportunity to reflect on it from multiple perspectives.
We recommend group therapy primarily because of its significant impact on our clients' communication skills and interpersonal relationships. In these groups, the relationship between the individual and group strengthens. Under the guidance of the group therapist, clients learn how to discuss their thoughts and feelings without suppressing themselves or others.
Now that you’ve begun your path to recovery, it is vital that you receive the help and care you need. At Tulip Hill, assisting you in achieving your long-term goals of recovery is our priority.
In addition to providing group therapy, we incorporate a wide range of other treatments into treatment programs. When combined with group therapy, they will assist you in battling your addiction, facing your weaknesses, and rebuilding your social skills.
