Group Therapy

The Importance of Parts

No man (or woman) is an island, but addiction, trauma, and mental health issues can be very isolating. Individual therapy is an important part of what we do at The Cabin, but one-on-one talk therapy can only take someone so far. It’s in groups that patients find community, camaraderie, and peer support that can lead to important insights and provide the framework for lasting recovery.

No one exists in a vacuum and the power of Groups Therapy is that it allows patients to identify with their peers and gain insight into their negative choices and behaviours from others who have been there. As patients form a community and learn from each other, they are better able to incorporate what they’re hearing from counsellors and therapists.

Group therapy encourages patients to establish relationships with other members, creating long-term friendships and improved self-awareness. While away from family and loved ones, during inpatient treatment, this group of imperfect people can mimic the family of origin, allowing issues to surface and be dealt with.

Group Therapy is utilised in our residential rehab addiction treatment method because not only your counsellors, but also your peer group, have a profound effect on your recovery. It is the main difference between residential treatment and community outpatient treatment/counselling. In a residential setting like rehab, your peer group enables you to see more of your issues than you would otherwise, and the dynamic of working through your issues with others “in the same boat” is proven to be more effective than battling it alone.
