Group Substance Abuse Therapy
At Arise Recovery Centers of Dallas we offer numerous programs depending on what the patient’s needs are. Many of our patients prefer and do well in a group setting, which is a counseling group that generally includes about 8 or more people. Arise schedules group sessions every week, 3 nights a week from 6 – 9 PM. In our group therapy, you will find a unique blend of addiction treatment modalities with evidence-based practices, experiential workshops, 12-step support, spiritual development, and life skills. Men and women of all walks of life benefit from group therapy and come to Arise Recovery Centers from across the Dallas area to become a part of our group sessions. We invite you to hear some of our patient stories and how group therapy helped them reach new levels as they progressed toward a life of sobriety.
At Arise Recovery Centers, our group sessions are led by master’s level therapists. Being able to interact with other individuals who are struggling with some of the same issues can be quite helpful for those in early recovery. Group therapy also helps individuals realize that they are not alone and allows them to share information and experiences with one another, boosting confidence and self-esteem. Overall, sharing experiences and feelings has been proven to reduce stress, guilt, and pain among individuals in group therapy.
There are many benefits in attending a group therapy counseling session at Arise Recovery Centers.
