The Role of Group Therapy in Chemical Dependency Treatment

Brown Bag Lunch on July 11th

The Role of Group Therapy in Chemical Dependency Treatment

"Group therapy offers the chemically dependent individual an opportunity to address issues related to addiction, reinforce accountability in the actions required for recovery and have a safe outlet to share experiences, thoughts and feelings. When working with this population, it is essential to have a deep understanding of addiction, recovery and the role group therapy plays in the treatment of the illness. These topics will be discussed in detail as well as how to effectively work with addicts and alcoholics in group therapy."  Andrew Krieger, LMSW, LCDC
