You’re Not Alone
Help for Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)
An estimated 16 million people in America struggle with an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). If you suffer from AUD, chances are you struggle quietly on your own, and feelings of isolation only serve to further complicate matters. Your battle with alcohol may seem impossible to overcome on your own, but we want you to know that you’re not alone. We also want you to know that there’s a way forward.
At Valley, addiction recovery is our passion and our mission is to serve the mental health of our many clients who suffer from AUD. One of the ways we’re doing this is through robust and interactive close-space care groups led by trained clinicians.
Strength In Numbers
Overcoming Alcohol Abuse Together
Though many individuals with AUD are aware of their problems, they have found it increasingly difficult to stop and get healthy on their own. Research shows that counseling within a group setting is just as effective, sometimes even more so, as individual care. These empowering spaces allow our clients the opportunity to receive and give feedback all while being encouraged by others stories.
Valley groups were designed specifically to provide you the community, accountability, and care you need to begin your journey toward recovery while continuing to navigate your everyday environments.
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:
Feelings of isolation often accompany those struggling with addiction. In a group therapy setting, participants realize they are not alone as others empathize with them and share their own stories of addiction.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Note: women who have substance use issues and are pregnant or have dependent children will receive priority treatment.
