What Is Group Therapy?
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. This collaborative approach creates a supportive environment where individuals can share their experiences, learn from others, and develop new coping strategies.
It is a staple of behavioral health treatment and is used in the treatment of not only substance use disorders but also process addictions and mental health conditions.
The Role of Group Therapy in Addiction Treatment
In the context of addiction treatment, group therapy serves multiple purposes:
- Peer support – Group therapy fosters a sense of community and belonging, reducing feelings of isolation that often accompany addiction.
- Shared experience – Participants can learn from others who are facing similar challenges, providing valuable insights and perspectives.
- Skill development – Through group discussions and activities, participants can develop essential skills such as stress management, problem-solving, and emotional regulation.
- Accountability – Participants can find motivation and maintain accountability toward their recovery goals by sharing their progress and setbacks with the group.
Through group therapy, individuals can navigate the cycle of addiction and move toward recovery.

Group Therapy for Co-Occurring Disorders
Many individuals struggling with addiction also have co-occurring mental health disorders.
