It is the natural propensity of human beings to congregate, that make group therapy a powerful and therapeutic tool for treating substance use disorder, one that is as helpful as individual therapy, and sometimes more successful. One reason for this efficacy is that groups intrinsically have many rewarding benefits—such as reducing isolation and enabling members to witness the recovery of others—and these qualities draw clients into a culture of recovery. There are several reasons groups work so well, one being that they are suitable especially for treating problems that commonly accompany substance abuse, such as depression, isolation, and shame. At Conduit we foster an atmosphere of validation, inclusion and motivation. To find out more please fill out a request appointment form or call 443.869.2680.
