Group Counseling

An Empowering Community of Counseling & Care

Recovery Is A Team Sport

Those who suffer from substance abuse disorders and mental health issues know that recovery is an extremely difficult goal to reach all by yourself. Research shows that counseling within a group setting is just as effective, sometimes even more so, as individual care.

At Valley, we are proud to provide robust and interactive close-space care groups led by trained clinicians. These empowering spaces allow our clients the opportunity to receive and give feedback all while being encouraged by others stories.

What To Expect

Receiving & Providing Support

One of the most encouraging aspects to community care is knowing you’re not alone. One of the most empowering aspects to group counseling is taking part in another’s journey of recovery.

Most who struggle with substance and mental health issues long for a safe space to communicate their hurdles and habits in judgment-free context as they receive support from professionals and peers alike. Those who take part quickly experience reinforcement in their own care and discover the personal value they bring as they share their own experiences and discoveries with those around them.

Providing Group Counseling Around a Number of Issues:

  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Opioids
  • Trauma
  • Suicide & Depression

The Benefits of Group Therapy

At Valley, we’re seeking to change the culture of group therapy. While individual counseling seems to be highly sought after, there are numerous benefits to group addiction therapy which you should consider:

Community

Feelings of isolation often accompany those struggling with addiction. In a group therapy setting, participants discover they are not alone as others empathize with them and share their own stories of addiction.

Communication

Those who suffer from substance abuse disorders often have no one to talk to about their problems. In a group setting among their peers, they discover the freedom to share about their problem without judgment.

Insight

Discussion centered on common addiction issues within a group setting can provide new perspectives and insights as participants hear others convey their own stories of substance abuse and provide feedback.

Value

It’s easy for those who abuse substances to be viewed as a burden on their support structures. Group therapy adds value to participants as vital members of a caring community seeking recovery together.

Accountability

Some of the most effective groups develop feelings of responsibility in each other’s progress and recovery. Accountability is often a result of the community, value, insight, and communication experienced together.
