What are the benefits of group counseling?
Group counseling at Victory Recovery Partners offers many benefits and is an important component of your recovery. Group counseling takes advantage of your natural need to relate to others.
Humans, in general, are social creatures. During times of stress, you may seek out other people who can relate to how you’re feeling.
Because addiction often destroys personal relationships, group counseling allows you to develop new relational skills and build trust in others. Group counseling helps you to learn how to talk and listen effectively and set healthy boundaries with others.
