Overview

There are various benefits of group therapy for individuals with addiction that individual and family therapies are not always able to provide. These include –

• It offers consistent motivation and support for recovery from peers.
• It offers education about the recovery process.
• It allows members to give feedback and encouragement to each other.
• It allows the development of relationships within group members that act as a support system outside of the sessions.
• It helps build in members self-worth, optimism, and self-efficacy.
• It allows members to observe and learn from other members’ problem-solving strategies.
• It uses therapeutic tools that enable members to become aware of and challenge their own self-destructive thoughts and behaviours that fuel their drug addiction.
• It helps add a structure and routine to the members’ lives that positively impact their physical and mental health, and thus the recovery process.

How effective is Group therapy for Drug Addiction?

Group therapy is effective in the treatment of drug addiction as it helps address various factors associated with substance abuse such as anxiety, depression, isolation, temporary cognitive impairment, shame, denial, and character pathology that respond better to group therapy than individual therapy. Group therapy is also effective as human beings are relational creatures.

What are the benefits of Group therapy for Drug Addiction?

The benefits of group therapy include getting education about the recovery process, developing skills essential to break free of the addiction pattern, help in challenging and replacing thought and behaviour patterns that contribute to addiction, getting encouragement, support, and feedback from other members of the group for constructive change, and learning ways to cope with life problems that the person with addiction has previously avoided and perhaps is using the substance as a method to cope with.

How many numbers of sessions are required?

The number of sessions depends on the type of group. The group can be time-limited, which will consist of a fixed number of sessions, or can be ongoing which members can attend indefinitely based on their progress and presence of symptoms.
