Do you believe you or a loved one could use some help dealing with a substance abuse issue or maybe could also benefit from mental health care?

Care You Need and Deserve With Group Therapy and Counseling
Substance abuse and mental health treatment come with a lot of paper options. Still, when it comes to each individual, an assessment of their overall situation needs to be taken to ensure the right options are chosen for your specific situation.
At New Era in Connecticut, we’ll provide such an assessment and make the recommendations we believe will best help you with where you’re currently in recovery and put you on the most supportive road for the rest of your journey.
For some, more robust group therapy and counseling treatment, plans are necessary. Smaller, more individual, and personal plans may be the preferred route for others. The main thing to remember is we’ll recommend options, but they’re your options. You don’t have to make any decisions rashly or alone. We’re here to make your choices in Connecticut successful with sympathy, patience, and understanding.
Group Therapy at New Era Rehabilitation in Connecticut – Bridgeport and New Haven
If you aren’t in a position where an inpatient or an intensive outpatient program is recommended, you’ll probably benefit most from individual or group therapy. More than likely, you’ll be recommended a combination of both. This approach maximizes your privacy through individual sessions while giving you the benefit of communal care through group counseling.
Group therapy may be intimidating initially, but it truly is an effective recovery option for substance use and mental health disorders. Sharing isn’t easy for everyone but once in a group setting, the ability to listen to others as they relate their personal experiences washes away a great deal of the loneliness we experience during the recovery process.
In essence, group therapy reminds us we’re not alone and we’re not the only ones who have experienced these difficulties and struggles. It teaches us how to be honest with ourselves and others again while also reminding us that we don’t have to recover and heal in a room all by ourselves.
Group therapy also demonstrates the importance of building a support network while acting as your initial support network. The sessions allow participants to learn, share, and educate while forming bonds that may continue well beyond the sessions.
At New Era Rehabilitation in CT in locations – Bridgeport and New Haven, group therapy focuses on areas that will help your immediate treatment while providing the tools and support for lasting recovery.
Our Group Therapy Sessions in CT
Groups meet routinely and focus on mental health, substance abuse, or both and how to best deal with them in a supportive and caring environment. The sessions are led by specialists and tend to be discussion-oriented. Topics can range from coping mechanisms to triggers to how to deal with urges and emotions.
Types of group therapy meetings and sessions in CT may include:
Mental Health and Substance Use Education
Here the group may focus on mental health and recovery topics like genetics, nature versus nurture, nutrition, dealing with trauma, lifestyle choices, and relapse awareness.
12-Step Recovery Programs
These sessions are built on the 12-Step model for recovery that uses the communal approach of taking responsibility, sharing experiences, making moral inventories, doing daily reflections, and making amends with ourselves and others.
Early Recovery Skills
In these sessions, the immediate and short-term focus is arming you with the skills needed to defeat the normal obstacles everyone goes through when they start recovery. These include how to deal with urges and cravings, how to cope with stressful triggers that may encourage relapse, and how to modify our behavior to overcome those obstacles, whereas before, they may have gotten the better of us.
These are just a few examples of our group therapy meetings. Other meetings and topics may include Social Support Networks, Relapse Prevention, and Anger Management.
We’ll recommend the group environments we believe provide the best support and recovery tools for your treatment plan.
