Mapping Your 12 Steps
The Mapping Your 12 Steps group is designed to deepen patients thinking on the Twelve steps. Clients have the opportunity to interpret the steps in a way that they can understand. This is a 12-week group set up for clients who are interested in the 12-steps of recovery but do not necessarily want to attend a traditional self-support group in the community.
Our Anger-Management program is a 10 week course specific to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Clients. The 10 week course is approved and written by SAMSHA through the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES. The group focuses on Anger Control Plans, Aggression, Cognitive Restructuring, Events and Cues, and Assertiveness. Participants are required to complete handouts along with providing verbal input within the group setting, as-well-as homework. Upon successful completion of the 10 week course each member will receive a Certificate of completion.
This group emphasizes activities and tools that an individual can use in order to reduce the stress that they are feeling. The activities and tools include relaxation techniques, guided imagery, coloring, and looking at ways to relieve everyday stress such as exercise. The individuals within the group are able to discuss issues that are bothering them to gain input from others in the group on how to deal with the situations.
The 12-Hour Education group is defining the disease model of addiction, the addiction cycle, defense mechanisms and how they are used in addiction and everyday life. The group also touches on some of the consequences of addiction, physical effects and legal debate of marijuana and how the media influences us. This is a 12-week group normally for patients who have no previous history of treatment.
Early Tools in Recovery
This group emphasizes the tools that an individual will need to start off in their recovery. These tools range from dealing with stress, anxiety, finding their individual self again, and also to start building their coping skills. The group also helps the individual find their motivation in wanting to remain sober and working through their recovery. Working on healthy versus unhealthy relationships and also finding those hobbies they can do sober are also the tools that are needed for the individual to work on developing the support they need within their recovery.
Our therapy Group here at Main Place allows our clients to focus on the “Here and Now”. With no set agenda, clients are encouraged to bring fourth any issues that they may be experiencing that are negatively affecting their sobriety. The group setting allows each group member to give and receive feedback from other group members who may be experiencing, or have already experienced the same problems. With therapy, a person who has become dependent on drugs or alcohol are often more likely to overcome an addiction, and several types of therapy’s are helpful in this process. In particular, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing therapy—a Person-Centered Therapy that relies on the person’s inspiration to change—have demonstrated effectiveness in this arena.
