If you’ve decided to reach out and get help for your addiction, you’re probably wondering what treatment will be like. Therapy is a key aspect of any program. It allows you to find the truth behind your addiction as well as any underlying issues that may have contributed. While individual therapy is important, group therapy offers many benefits that are critical to your overall treatment goals and ongoing recovery.
At Gateway Foundation, we incorporate addiction support groups into many of our patient’s treatment programs. Learn more about how we use group therapy at our location in Carbondale, IL.
The name says it all. Group therapy is where people facing similar issues come together in a safe, therapeutic setting to find healing. Participants in an addiction support group can freely discuss the challenges they face without fear of judgment or blame because everyone else understands and empathizes.
The goal of group therapy is to help our clients gain a deeper understanding of the disease of addiction while at the same time, finding support from others in the group.

While no one is required to share, these interactions and the synergy they create often help clients feel safer and more open to sharing. This allows both our clients and their counselors to discover what lies under the surface.
When you come to Gateway Foundation for treatment, every aspect of your care has a purpose. We utilize group therapy because we have witnessed first-hand the incredible benefits it holds for our clients, including:
