Recovering from alcohol or drug addiction can be tough—at times, very tough. You must adapt to life without the one thing you previously chose as your source of strength and solace. Additionally, you must find strength from other sources to wean yourself from dependence.
As you read the text above, you might well have noted how often it refers to what you need to do. It probably seems like the burden of recovery is yours to carry. In fact that’s true, but on the other hand, the real burden is your addiction, as you will only truly realize when you’ve advanced substantially in your recovery process. The journey to sober life is not eased by the knowledge that while recovery is possible, you will never be cured. Lifelong support will be a necessary part of your release from the grip of drugs or alcohol.
Outpatient Group Therapy Lightens Your Load
The value of group or individual counseling or therapy can’t be overstated as an effective source of treatment and support, especially after you leave the protection of inpatient rehab. By regularly interacting with a group of peers, all of whom share your struggles, stresses, temptations, and frustrations, you become better equipped to face all those challenges and acquire much-needed strength and resilience.
Everyone in the group has something to offer. Everyone in the group has something to gain. Through the sharing of experiences, concerns and solutions, an outpatient drug rehab group helps you acquire tools and skills enabling you to manage a life without drugs or alcohol.
Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab is Confidential, Nonjudgental
These are the key tenets of our therapy groups. Nobody will sit in judgment of your recovery efforts. Nobody will discuss your addiction or therapy outside of the group. You’ll learn to communicate openly and honestly about your experiences and concerns—something which can initially be hard after the months or years of concealment and denial that typify alcohol or drug abuse.
While the emphasis of group therapy is on peer support, you will also have access to professional guidance, to further prepare you for productive and independent living. You can depend on assistance and support beyond that required simply to manage a sober life though. Through group therapy, you will find help to repair aspects of your life damaged by your addiction.
Unlocking the Shackles of Drug and Alcohol Addiction
At Steppingsober, we believe our community prospers when its members can give their best. Alcohol and drugs rob individuals of their freedom and detracts from community wellbeing. Our mission is to help those in our community to be free from addiction and able to play their rightful, productive part in society.
Outpatient Addiction Treatment is Driven by Three Core Values
To succeed in our mission, the team at Top Sober Living Residence is committed to upholding the following core values:
- Addressing Cause and Effect: Few people fall into addiction for no reason. There is almost always a root cause or, maybe more than one. Our Alcohol rehab specialists and counselors seek to identify what drives individual addiction and treat the problem at source. In practice, this means we diagnose emotional and psychological issues that co-exist with the problem of addiction. Once diagnosed, we treat these issues as part of our patients’ recovery process.
- Client Empathy: Every member of our team knows how to put themselves in the shoes of a patient. That’s because some of us have been there ourselves. Only addicts and those who work closely with them can truly understand the challenges of getting sober. We only employ professionals who possess that level of understanding.
- Patients as Partners: Partnership and collaboration form the basis of our outpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs. We involve you, the patient throughout and encourage you to accept ownership and accountability for your recovery effort.
