How effective is Group Therapy for Alcohol Addiction?

Group therapy is effective in treating alcohol addiction as it helps clients learn to overcome anxiety, symptoms of depression, and painful withdrawal symptoms.

How does Group Therapy for Alcohol Addiction work?

Group therapy sessions happen usually once or twice a week for 1-2 hours, which are facilitated by one or two trained psychologists. The members can consist of as little as 3-4 or even more than 12 members.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

For most effective results from group therapy, it is best to stay the course of all the sessions. Group sessions usually have pre-designed modules which may consist of a set number of weekly sessions over a period of 3 months, or for a whole year’s duration. Each person will take different time to recover. It is best to use group therapy in conjunction with individual therapy and pharmacological treatment.
