Addiction Counseling and Group Therapy

Recovering from an addiction involves a holistic approach that treats the client’s emotional and psychological issues as well as their physical health. At Ken Seeley Communities, we view addiction therapy as a continuum of care that includes both individual and group therapy sessions.

Individual Therapy

During individualized therapy, a client works one-on-one with a mental health professional, with the goal of increasing self-awareness and learning more about the impact of addiction. Therapy is a collaborative process between the client and the therapist that helps them work through challenges in a judgment-free way.

We structure individualized therapy to each client’s needs using various therapeutic modalities, including the following.

Benefits of Family Therapy

Family therapy has many benefits in addiction treatment. The therapeutic setting provides a safe space for everyone to learn how to work through sensitive issues as they adjust to a loved one’s recovery from addiction and mental illness. During family therapy, the therapist will focus on helping family members make specific, positive changes in their relationships.

Because families serve as built-in support networks, they can be invaluable for someone who is seeking the motivation and balance necessary to succeed in drug and alcohol recovery. When the entire family gets involved in treatment, they can not only improve their understanding of what their loved one is going through, but can also learn how to be more helpful along the way.

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: This treatment method involves the therapist helping the client learn how to identify and address the negative thought processes that give rise to unhealthy behavior. CBT gives clients the necessary coping skills to handle common co-occurring disorders such as anger, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy: DBT is a variety of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients manage intense emotions, develop healthy interpersonal skills and find greater meaning in life. DBT involves a series of mindfulness exercises that help clients improve self-acceptance and learn to live in the moment.
  • Relapse prevention training: RPT is a behavioral program designed to teach individuals how to anticipate and cope with the problem of relapse. Like other forms of individual therapy, RPT combines behavioral and cognitive interventions in an overall approach that emphasizes learning greater self-control.

Group Therapy

Addiction can be isolating. That’s why group therapy has become such a beneficial component of addiction recovery. Group therapy provides clients with an open and supportive environment where they can discuss their problems without fear of others judging them.

Group therapy offers many benefits, including the following.

  • Mutual support: Group therapy offers a variety of perspectives and feedback. Clients learn how to accept feedback constructively and express themselves without anger or aggression.
  • Improved communication:Discussion among group participants helps give clients a valuable opportunity to improve their interpersonal communication skills and gain insight into how others view them.
  • Recovery skills:The goal of many group therapy activities is to give clients the skills they need to manage post-treatment challenges and triggers, thus helping minimize the risk of a relapse. In groups, clients can also learn practical life skills, such as finding employment or setting a budget.
  • Education: Fully embracing treatment involves a foundational understanding of the numerous neurological and psychological factors that can lead to addiction. Group sessions can give clients a comprehensive overview of the many facets of addiction and relapse, as well as providing a plan for managing the challenges they can expect to face in recovery.
