Connecting with others

Continuous Peer Support in a Therapeutic Setting

Individual therapy, also referred to as psychotherapy or talk therapy, is a form of therapeutic treatment where individuals meet one-on-one with a trained mental health expert. During these sessions, they’re able to address emotional, behavioral and psychological concerns in a safe, confidential space. 

The goal of individual therapy is to allow individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviors free of judgment. By doing this, they can work toward personal growth, healing and improved well-being. Clients spend a lot of time in individual therapy at NJ Recovery Solutions, as it’s a powerful tool in substance use recovery.

Understanding group therapy

What Exactly is Group Therapy?

Group therapy is a type of therapeutic treatment where a small group of individuals, usually between 6 and 12, come together to discuss various psychological and emotional challenges. It is led by a trained therapist or counselor and is a vital part of the addiction treatment process. Clients at Jersey Recovery Center can expect to spend significant time in group therapy where they can interact, share experiences and learn from others’ perspectives.

Connecting with peers going through similar challenges is effective in addiction treatment, as it helps with the isolation and shame that often occurs with substance use. These therapy sessions remind individuals that they are not alone and that they have a safe space to be vulnerable and work through issues. Group therapy complements other forms of therapy, including individual and family therapy.

What to expect from group therapy

What Happens During Group Therapy?

In group therapy for substance use treatment, one or more trained therapists or counselors lead a small group of individuals who are working on their recoveries. Most groups are small and stay together with the same therapist in order to foster a sense of trust.

The format of the group therapy session depends on the therapist who is leading the group and the type of group therapy. For example, there are psychoeducational groups, interpersonal process groups and skills development groups. Support groups are another type of group therapy that focus on maintaining sobriety in day-to-day life.

Oftentimes, a specific topic is introduced and everyone in the group gets an opportunity to share their experiences. This format is more relaxed and open-ended, allowing for natural discussions. Through these sessions, individuals feel less alone, less alienated and more understood, which is important when navigating the recovery process.

I'm nervous about sharing my story with a group. Is this normal?

Absolutely. It’s common to feel anxious or hesitant about sharing personal experiences with others, especially if you’re new to the group therapy setting. It’s important to remember that sharing is always voluntary; you can participate at your own pace and share when you feel ready. Our group therapy sessions are led by compassionate therapists who create a welcoming and non-judgmental environment. Many participants find that once they start listening to others’ stories, their nervousness decreases and they feel more comfortable opening up. Remember, your journey and comfort in the process are our top priorities.
