Therapy groups can be intimidating for many people, but they are integral to sober living. Sharing one’s struggles with others may seen unnecessary and too vulnerable. Yet talking with others struggling with the same issues as yourself brings a sense of normalcy, realizing you are not alone in your troubles. Walking beside others, encouraging one another, and accepting that you need relationships in life to thrive, are some of the great lessons people learn through group.
At Restorations Therapy Center, we have groups for people who struggle with addiction, partners of addicts, and females who have experienced sexual trauma, offered at various times. If you think a psychotherapy group could be helpful for you, please contact us to talk with a therapist to answer any of your questions.
Helping Men Recover is a gender-responsive, trauma-informed treatment program for men. This curriculum addresses what is often missing in current treatment models: a clear understanding of the impact of male socialization on the recovery process, a consideration of the relational needs of men, and a focus on the issues of abuse and trauma. Men in the group will work to explore the four modules: self, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality as they develop an ownership of conscious masculinity that supports their recovery and connection to the man they want to be.
This group focuses on the three top issues for most professional men in recovery. We assist clients in moving away from “compartmentalization” of one’s life by creating a balanced and connected life. We discuss each participant’s relationship with money and work as well as help with the growth, maturity and intimacy with those closest to them. This group is open to men 28 and older who are not acting out their addictions and are motivated to go to the next level of healing.
The group is a skills building program utilizing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) techniques and interventions. It is for individuals who would benefit from developing emotion regulation skills to cope with various life situations.
DBT group members learn to effectively cope with and embrace life and arising moment-to-moment experiences. There are 5 main process steps in this curriculum:
Requirements of group members include developing healthy coping skills and practicing emotion regulation strategies, addressing lifestyle changes and help with emotional responses.
The program is designed to bring practices of mindful awareness to individuals who have suffered from the addictive trappings and tendencies of the mind. MBRP practices are intended to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions that seem to control many of our lives. The mindfulness practices in MBRP are designed to help us pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of choices before each of us in every moment. We learn to respond in ways that serve us, rather than react in ways that are detrimental to our health and happiness. Ultimately, we are working towards freedom from deeply ingrained and often catastrophic habits.
Will be open to all appropriate family members of our men in Valiant Living Recovery Housing or VL IOP.
Based upon the work of Dr. Brene Brown. The group draws on empirically based strategies to help clients recognize shame as a universal experience and embrace authentic living as a foundation for shame resilience. Topics include defining shame practicing, empathy exploring triggers and vulnerabilities, practicing critical awareness, reaching out to others, and creating, embracing, and inspiring change. The curriculum engages clients on a cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal level.
Most medical professionals, pilots, licensed behavioral health workers, and high level business men and women greatly benefit when they actively participate in a weekly continuing care group. Several of our master level therapist team members have special expertise in working with these clients, their families and the monitoring agencies.
Psychotherapy groups seek to combat the basic struggle for most sex addicts; intimacy. Many describe sexual addiction as an intimacy disorder, for keeping a distance comes as a protection from others learning of one’s addiction. After years of experience, the defenses to keep others at bay become unconscious, pushing friends, family, and loved ones away. Psychotherapy groups create a safe environment where individuals slowly take steps of vulnerability, allowing others to see who they truly are. Under the guidance of a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist, group members are challenged to step further into areas they would normally avoid in order to combat the silence and isolation of addiction.
Partners of addicts may experience a significant amount of trauma themselves. From the trauma of learning about their partner’s actions, to the prolonged trauma of an unhealthy marriage, partners need support to help process their experiences. Feelings of anger and pain are normal for partners, and you should not go through these feelings alone. Restorations Therapy Center provides levels of support for spouses in their own recovery process. Roughly 60% of individuals in our program struggling with an addiction have their partner receiving the care and attention they need to work through their own pain.
