Group therapy is an essential complement to individual therapy. Each therapy has its own set of unique benefits, and the use of both greatly increases the likelihood of long-term recovery.
Addicts frequently become isolated and detached from friends and family. Group therapy helps them reconnect with people, and it allows them to address their issues with others who can relate to what they are feeling and going through. Group therapy also allows residents to share in the successes of others who are undergoing therapy and to receive feedback from peers they are interacting with on a daily basis.
