Suffering from an addiction is a significant challenge impacting people from all walks of life.
Many times addiction is tied to genetics, your environment, and life choices. Despite these issues, you can beat your addiction by going to group therapy sessions. Our programs are centered on you and helping you work through different barriers. Here are the most common terms and sessions you will encounter during group therapy.
The Most Common Terms
During these sessions, we use different terms to showcase various concepts. Here are some of the most common terms we use.
Altruism: Each member of the group shares their experiences to help others in the group feel welcome, improve confidence, and build self-esteem. These shared experiences let you see that you are not alone and going through similar challenges as other people in the group.
Cohesiveness: The group works together towards a common goal. Everyone builds a sense of acceptance and belonging.
Existentialism: Group therapy gives you the support and guidance to make empowering decisions in your life. You are responsible for your actions and can bring about changes at any time.
Modeling: Working as a group, you learn how to model your behavior from the success of others and the therapists.
These are some of the most common terms you will hear during addiction treatment in South Florida.
The Sands Treatment Center can help you beat your addiction through our effective group therapy sessions.
Group therapy is broken up into open sessions where new members are welcome to join and participate at any time. Closed sessions are for only the core members of the group.
Behavioral: We look at destructive thinking, emotions, and behavior that contribute to your addiction. The goal is to give you new ways of looking at things and teach you how to change your behavior.
Cognitive Therapy: We educate you on how to cope and what you can do to avoid the same problems.
Skills Development: Group therapy teaches you how to use different social and interpersonal skills to take control of your life.
We use these and other tools during our therapy sessions to create positive changes for you.
