What is Group Therapy

What is Purpose of Group Therapy for Opioid Abuse?

Addiction is an involved disease that does not respond well to easy solutions.

Individuals who are addicted to substances like opioids often battle with psychological, physical, emotional, and behavioral challenges. For treatment programs to be the most effective, they must work to address all issues within these areas and comb through how they have either led to the addiction or impacted it. Group therapy can be a superior source of opportunity to achieve this objective.

As the term implies, group therapy is an experience that includes the simultaneous participation of numerous patients. Small group therapy sessions are usually led by one counselor, while larger sessions are led by multiple counselors.

Similar to individual therapy, the purpose of group therapy is to help patients ascertain and address their emotional and behavioral influences that have added to the development of their opioid addictions. Addiction hardly ever develops out of thin air; rather, a variety of external issues often add to its development. These issues can include self-esteem problems, mood disorders, trauma, history of abuse, stress, pressure, and more. Group therapy offers up a space for patients to work through matters such as these and other topics related to addiction.

Objectives for Group Therapy

Objectives of Group Therapy for Opioid Abuse

Group therapy is able to be as effective as it is primarily because of the talent of the counselor(s) and the participation of the group members who freely share their experiences, insights, and thoughts with the group. Below are among the many objectives and principles of group therapy:

  • Hope – Seeing that others have transcended challenges similar to one’s own
  • Altruism – Knowing the value of adding to the betterment of the lives of others
  • Interpersonal learning – Gaining an education based on the experiences and thoughts of others in the group, all while being able to share one’s own understandings
  • Self-understanding – Learning more about one’s own issues by listening to others share their achievements and obstacles
  • Universality – Lifting heavy feelings of isolation by pointing out the shared feelings and experiences of others in the group
  • Catharsis – Obtaining relief from shame or guilt by speaking on one’s challenges publically
  • Cohesiveness – Feeling a sense of purpose, belonging, and validation when sharing with others
  • Imitative behavior – Creating skills that come from watching the positive behaviors of the counselor and the group members
  • Information – Growing educated about the process of recovery and the disease of addiction

At Beloit Comprehensive Treatment Center, we appreciate the value of group therapy as a critical component to a complete medication assisted treatment program. By joining counselors and patients together in an environment that is secure and welcoming, we are able to create a productive and collaborative environment where challenges and achievements can be put into the appropriate perspective and spoken on in a manner that is helpful for all involved. Group therapy supplies information, priceless insight, and support that help enhance a patient’s chances at achieving long lasting recovery.

Keep in mind that there is no one medication or therapeutic technique that will put an end to opioid addiction. Within a program such as this, it takes a number of different elements being combined into one plan to help bring about recovery for those addicted to opioids. Group therapy is just one aspect of a treatment program such as this.

If you or someone you care for could benefit from group therapy and the other areas of care that we supply at our medication assisted treatment program, please call us right now.
