Group Therapy

Within Royal Life Centers at the Haven, guests participate in group therapy six days a week (Mon-Sat) for five hours. During detox, guests attend each session, provided they are physically healthy. If a guest is unable to participate due to physical or mental distress, staff members grant a medical exemption.

Done in conjunction with CBT-based individual therapy, our guests discover, analyze, and overcome their negative thoughts and actions as they bond and empathize with fellow guests. Our groups encourage guests to make self-discoveries as they build social relationships and establish a sober peer network.

Group Therapy The Haven

What is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is a form of psychological treatment that involves a small group of individuals with similar issues coming together to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It is commonly used in substance abuse treatment as it provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Types of Group Therapy

Group therapy extends beyond discussions on drug and alcohol addiction. It provides a safe haven for individuals in recovery to connect with others. During substance abuse treatment, our clients have access to a diverse range of group therapy services. Group therapy services empower guests to discover effective strategies for managing challenges and navigating triggers in a healthy manner.

Group therapy offers a diverse range of approaches, employing unique techniques to aid clients in processing emotions and developing healthy communication skills. Our group therapies, each focusing on distinct themes, address a wide array of issues that may arise during the recovery process.

Each type of group therapy offers its own unique set of benefits to individuals undergoing addiction treatment. By actively participating in group sessions, you can cultivate improved communication skills and foster healthier relationships.

How is Group Therapy Used in Substance Abuse Treatment?

Group therapy is an essential component of substance abuse treatment as it addresses the underlying issues that contribute to addiction. It helps individuals gain insight into their addiction and provides them with tools and techniques to cope with triggers and cravings.

Group therapy also allows individuals to learn from others’ experiences, which can help them feel less alone in their struggles. Through group discussions, individuals can understand the impact of their addiction on themselves and others, leading to increased motivation for change.

Group Therapy Topics in Rehab

At Royal Life Centers, we prioritize the use of evidence-based techniques to cultivate a secure and therapeutic environment for our guests. Our group sessions incorporate effective therapy techniques such as cognitive behavioral strategies and mindfulness approaches to promote communication, trust, and growth in recovery. 

During our group therapy sessions, our highly trained facilitators skillfully guide clients through a diverse array of discussions, covering a wide range of topics including:

During the treatment process, you will acquire valuable skills to address emotional, physical, and spiritual concerns effectively. Simultaneously, you will forge meaningful connections with your peers, fostering personal growth and well-being. For this reason, engaging in group therapy discussions can provide you with the invaluable support and empathy of your peers, empowering you to lead an authentic life free from addiction. 

What To Expect During Group Therapy In Rehab?

In group therapy, our trained and experienced therapists guide group members in discussions and activities to promote healing and growth. Our group facilitators create a safe, welcoming environment that fosters open and honest communication.

During inpatient treatment, guests identify and work through difficult feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and establish new patterns of thinking. As guests participate in the group, they are encouraged to share as much as they are comfortable discussing with their peers. By sharing their struggles with others, they open themselves up to new ideas, perspectives, and solutions.

When your peers share in the group, you can experience a role reversal in which you can provide your thoughts and feedback. That is why we strongly encourage active group participation — both sharing and listening — from each of our guests. In doing so, group sessions provide you with an opportunity to connect with others who are going through similar struggles and offer a sense of community and belonging.

Through participation and feedback in groups, guests create bonds with their peers and therapist, helping them reestablish a sense of safety and trust. Relating to others in similar situations can help group participants put their circumstances into perspective and bolster self-confidence. Knowing that others can relate to their experiences helps guests to feel accepted and included. That is why we work hard to make everyone feel at home at Royal Life Centers.

How Can Group Therapy Help In Recovery?

Drug and alcohol addiction can often disconnect individuals from their true selves and their relationships with others. In group therapy, individuals are encouraged to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.

Through the process of sharing and listening to others, people in recovery can gain a better understanding of themselves and how their addiction has affected their relationships. This can help them rebuild trust and mend broken connections with loved ones.

Group therapy also teaches individuals important communication and interpersonal skills that are vital for building healthy relationships in recovery. It provides a space to practice these skills in a safe environment, which can then be applied to real-life situations.

Group Therapy at Royal Life Centers

At Royal Life Centers at the Haven, group sessions are facilitated by one or more of our addiction therapists. An additional benefit of group therapy is they provide guests with an opportunity to create an organic support network. By interacting with their peers, guests are able to gain a greater understanding of themselves, others, core substance abuse issues, and solutions that are instrumental in their recovery journey.

Because We Care, Royal Life Centers at the Haven believe in the power of group therapy to effectively treat substance use disorder, as it fosters healthy discussion, identification, hope, and comradery among individuals.

Our Group Therapy Options

During detox, the group takes place daily, five times per day, and focuses on a wide array of topics. Some examples include relapse prevention, self-worth, goal-setting, finding identity in recovery, and processing feelings and emotions. Guests may choose to continue their treatment with us following detox within our residential inpatient program.

After completing detox and residential treatment at Spokane Heights, guests are welcome to transition into our 12-week aftercare program which consists of PHP and IOP. Our aftercare program extends for 12 weeks, providing continuing care services such as individual and group therapy, addiction education, life-skills training, job readiness activities, and relapse prevention planning.

Both our aftercare and outpatient programs are provided at Cascade Heights, our outpatient facility in Mead, Washington. During these lower levels of care, guests may choose to return home after treatment or stay in one of our sober living residences.
