Description

Substance Abuse Group Therapy defines therapeutic groups as those with trained leaders and a primary intent to help people recover from substance abuse. It also explains why groups work so well for treating substance abuse and describes the purpose, main characteristics, leadership, and techniques of five group therapy models, three specialty groups and groups that focus on solving a single problem. Many considerations that should be weighed before placing a client in a particular group are discussed, especially keying the group to the client’s stage of change and stage of recovery as well as issues that arise from client diversity.
In addition, this unit compares fixed and revolving types of therapy groups and recommends ways to prepare clients for participation: pregroup interviews, retention measures, and most important, group agreements that specify clients’ expectations of each other, the leader and the group. Chapter 4 also specifies the tasks that need to be accomplished in the early, middle and late phases of group development.
Included are presentations regarding differentiation of stages of treatment and client's conditions, therapeutic strategies and approaches to leadership. It explains the characteristics, duties and concepts important to promote effective group leadership in treating substance abuse, including how confidentiality regulations for alcohol and drug treatment apply to group therapy.
