A Psycho-educational Group is a specific type of group therapy
that focuses on educating clients about their particular disorders and the ways that they can cope with problems related to their disorder.
Common issues for discussion in Psycho-education Group Therapy for substance abuse can include:
Medications for support
Types of Addictions
The goal is to provide clients with actionable tools and resources to implement when they feel tempted to relapse or face hardships in recovery. This happens by improving a client’s self-awareness, ability to identify opportunities for improvement or growth, ability to identify positive resources in treatment and in the community, understanding of both addiction and recovery, and confidence in their ability to better their lives and make good choices.
Your progress and healing in substance abuse issues or co-occurring disorders
can be augmented by the inclusion of psycho-educational groups. Our Counselors and therapist at Monarch Shores know that you need a personalized treatment plan that includes a number of different traditional, holistic and alternative treatments to build towards a successful recovery.
