In group counseling sessions the group, led by the counselor, will explore alcohol and other drug problems and/or addiction and the ramifications of substance use. Discussions include an examination of attitudes and feelings, and consideration of alternative solutions and decision making.
Groups intrinsically have many rewarding benefits, such as reducing isolation and enabling group members to witness the recovery of others. Another reason groups work so well is that they are suited especially for treating problems that commonly accompany substance abuse such as depression, isolation, and shame.
Being in a group setting means having several other people cheer you on and help you set and achieve goals toward your recovery process. Another member in your group might bring up a challenge they are having that is identical to your problem. Seeing the problem from another perspective may help you see your own issue in a new light and enable you to see new solutions.
You will also quickly abandon misleading myths that you are alone in your feelings and thoughts. It is likely that several people in the group share a similar experience.
