Exploring Recovery for Adults, offered by Pine Rest, is for anyone either actively using substances or have recently used and still at risk of relapsing, to have a safe space to talk about their feelings and get support from those that understand the cravings and desire to use drugs and/or alcohol.
Focus will be on the group encouraging each other to remain sober and clean along with learning strategies for recovery techniques. Topics will be primarily psychoeducational and will include the stages of change, progression of substance use, how substance use and mental health symptoms impact each other, identifying triggers and healthy coping skills, and harm reduction skills.
The benefit of learning in a group format is that you not only have access to a trained mental health therapist, but also to peers that have been through similar experiences to you and can offer insight and support that is hard to get any other way.
The group meets virtually once a week. New group members can join at any time.
Group therapy is a covered service for most insurance providers. Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify.
Registration: If interested, current Pine Rest patients should talk to their case manager or therapist to get referred to this group.
However, if you are new to Pine Rest, a one-time evaluation to assess the appropriateness of group therapy will be arranged to discuss a treatment plan. Please call us at 866.852.4001.
