You constantly feel the urge to numb with alcohol or substances. You frequently feel guilty and ashamed of drinking and/or using to block out the pain. You feel a deep sense of sadness and isolate after these episodes. You’ve struggled to identify why you can’t just ‘stop’ like others have suggested. You’re able to ‘put on a face’ when needed but when with your loved ones, your resentment and shame often rear their heads. This virtual group is a place to learn about the complex nature of how unmet needs often translate into the cycle of using drugs and/or consuming alcohol. You will develop an understanding of what recovery means. This is a non-traditional approach to sobriety and does not utilize a 12-step intervention; but rather addresses the underlying behavioral values.
Is this group right for me?
This is a skill-building and support group designed for females, ages 25+ who struggle with impulse control, distress tolerance, and may have a pattern of self-sabotaging behaviors. Participants will develop insight into underlying needs, develop concrete coping mechanisms, and replace self-defeating choices with more empowering choices to support recovery.
These groups are didactic and interactive in nature, meaning that the facilitator (a Licensed Psychotherapist) leads and structures the group. Each week, the group facilitator guides all discussions, and processes by providing education, answering questions, and teaching structured exercises and interventions.
Sharing is not required, however attendees are always given the opportunity to do so, if they yearn for emotional and intimate interpersonal connections.
These groups are designed as an interactive experience in which participants learn how to connect with vulnerability while gaining insight into emotional needs.
