Group and Individual Therapy

Group and Individual Therapy

Therapy plays an important part in a patient's recovery from addiction to substances, and two of the main treatment options we use are individual and group therapy programs. Our highly qualified, professional counselors and physicians at the Virginia Center for Addiction Medicine can help you or your loved one to work through a variety of issues as part of your tailored treatment plan, which will enable you to gain a greater understanding of the problems you are trying to overcome.

Counseling and Education Services

Our counselors provide professional counseling sessions, as well as education for patients and loved ones. We help our patients learn to manage stress in a healthy manner and make informed decisions and life choices to support their recovery throughout their treatment. Outpatient group therapy also teaches our patients coping strategies that are beneficial to overcoming drug or alcohol addictions. As part of the addiction services that we provide, patients are offered family sessions, including couples therapy, as this can help patients develop and educate their support network during treatment and recovery. The client's loved ones are encouraged to engage throughout the course of treatment, with the loved one's permission, with on-site family and concerned person's education and processing groups held regularly as part of our counseling sessions. The education sessions that we run alongside therapy sessions are equally as important for patients, as well as their loved ones, to assist with both treatment and recovery. Sessions include family and group counseling sessions, which can be extremely beneficial to patients overcoming issues with addiction and mental health.

Addiction-Related Issues

The group therapy drug rehab treatment plans provided by the center feature pre-treatment motivational groups, long term support and growth, alongside relapse prevention groups. These options ensure that you are offered the help and understanding you require throughout your journey of recovery. There will always be support available to access, even after you have completed your initial treatment program, with drug group therapy activities, as well as individual therapy for drug addiction. Group therapy drug addiction groups focuses on a range of issues that have been found to most affect patients of drug or alcohol addictions, for example, family and relationships, goal-setting, as well as recovery, relapse and the use of medication-assisted treatments. If you are looking for intensive outpatient treatment in Richmond, VA, our certified and experienced addiction therapists can help you, or a loved one, create a detailed treatment plan with an individual drug therapist and IOP drug treatment. Group therapy for drug and alcohol provided by our counselors also focus on dual diagnosis relating to the patient’s recovery and any possible treatment for relapse prevention. Therapies can include services to treat mental health issues, eating disorders, diet and weight concerns, and physical or athletic training. Many of these problems can often go hand in hand with addiction problems, which is why we incorporate them into our individual treatment and therapy plans as part of our IOP therapy group sessions.

Compassionate and Understanding Group Therapy

Our therapists offer the best IOP addiction recovery groups in Richmond, VA and are available to provide support for patients at anytime. For individual counseling, we also have telemedicine services for patients experiencing difficulties but unable to access the location of the center. Recovering from substance-related addiction issues is a long journey and can be made more challenging without the right support, which is why group counseling in Richmond, VA can be beneficial to patients. Taking part in therapy sessions as a group has been found to be useful as it offers a greater level of understanding and creates a wider network of support for the patient. This kind of therapy session is helpful to patients during recovery, particularly as part of relapse prevention. Every group therapy session has an open, compassionate atmosphere and is led by one of our specialist drug and alcohol addiction counselors over a set time period. You can continue the group therapy sessions at the Virginia Centre for Addiction Medicine after your initial treatment, through our intensive out patient drug treatment groups.
