Group Therapy

Clear Recovery Center Uses the Power of Group Therapy to Help Our Clients Deal with Anxiety, Depression and Substance Abuse

Patients will have the opportunity to participate in many different group therapy sessions based on their personal needs and interests. Groups are often organized based on age and gender (i.e. Young Women’s Recovery Group or Adult Men’s Recovery Group) so that individuals working towards sustained sobriety can connect to others who are familiar with their unique experience as a person struggling with drug or alcohol dependence. These group therapy sessions offer individuals in recovery the chance to establish new, positive relationships with other patients with the same goals that are focused on sobriety. So often, addiction can be an isolating disease that impacts the ability effectively communicate.

Group therapy helps patients to escape that feeling of isolation and allows them the opportunity to practice essential social and relationship skills in a healthy and productive environment. One of the most valuable aspects of group therapy is the reciprocal support and collective sense of achievement that is created in group therapy spaces. Recovery is a difficult process for all who choose to commit to the path of sobriety, but having the support of others on the same journey, as well as providing support for others helps patients to create a sense of purpose and accountable community. Patients who participate in group therapy sessions will also enjoy celebrating their own successes and the important milestones of the individuals around them.

Dynamic Groups for Collective Healing


Working in a group setting has repeatedly been shown to have tremendous benefits for all of the individuals present.

The clinical team at Clear Recovery Center dynamically structures and chooses groups, group topics, and group discussions based on the needs of the group. This focus on unique, rather than cookie cutter treatment, is one of the factors that makes Clear Recovery Center so effective.

Patients at Clear Recovery Center will also be able to participate in other types of group opportunities, including:

    PROCESS GROUPS

    In these groups, participants will participate in a dialogue about thoughts, feelings, and experiences related to recovery.

    PSYCHOEDUCATION

    In these sessions, groups will learn together about the psychology of addiction and will work together to develop coping skills and trigger management plans.

    EXPERIENTIAL THERAPY

    In these sessions, groups will use props, role-playing, and other types of experiences to better understand and manage their addiction.

    EQUINE THERAPY

    In these therapy sessions, horses and trained equine therapy professionals will work with individuals and groups to build bonds and experiences of acceptance.

    ART THERAPY

    These sessions allow participants to participate in individual or group art projects in order to foster a deeper sense of self-expression with a variety of different mediums (paint, clay, ink, etc.).

    MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION

    These groups will allow participants to learn to live in the moment and offer the opportunity to develop a meditation practice together.


    Group Therapy Should be Age-Specific

    One-size-fits-all therapy is far less effective than a dynamic, customized approach. At Clear Recovery Center, our clinical team takes into account all aspects of the individual, including age, gender and life experience.

    That is why we have separate adult and young adult tracks at Clear Recovery Center.
