The Value of Support Groups
The Tremendous Value of Support Groups in Addiction Recovery
Recovery from drugs and alcoholism requires a comprehensive approach to treatment, with highly focused healing, expertly designed health programs, and constructive group therapy. Bradford offers a variety of innovative inpatient and outpatient services, many of them utilizing group therapy to effectively achieve results. These types of specialized programs can be customized to fit a specific client’s unique needs. Bradford offers new hope to patients and their families, providing treatment and care that helps to heal everyone involved. Our “team” approach is as innovative as it is effective.
Bradford’s team approach to treatment includes highly qualified addiction counselors, therapists, and medical physicians, In addition family programs are a vitally essential part of successful treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction. Family members are asked to join with the patient to discover some of the truths about addiction. The family’s role increases as the recovery process moves along and the patient becomes more comfortable with their interaction. This is also in conjunction with intense group therapy.
The value of support groups cannot be understated when it comes to achieving significant results with treatment for addiction. The ability of patients to hear other patients and communicate their feelings and ideas with similarly ill people is invaluable to the recovery process. Studies have shown that effective group therapy can make the difference between recovery and relapse, especially in the continuing therapy and ongoing recovery sessions.
