What Are Group Therapy Programs?

Addiction recovery facilities often employ a group therapy program that can be especially helpful to patients. These programs are directed by a psychologist who leads a group of between 5 and 15 people. Typically, the group meets for an hour or two weekly, with some attending individual therapy in addition to the group meeting. Others may participate in groups only.

Group therapy programs often focus on a specific problem that includes substance abuse, mental health disorders, chronic pain, and obesity. They can also target social skills and help people with a range of issues, such as shyness, anger, loneliness, and low self-esteem and worth. These groups can also center around those who have experienced loss, whether it’s from a spouse, child, or someone who committed suicide.
