Support Groups

Your Struggle is Also Someone Else’s

Group therapy can be a powerful force that motivates clients during treatment and after in recovery while transitioning back to life. Research has shown that people have better results if they participate in a mutual support or self-help group .

Group therapy is a way for people with common experiences, beliefs or diagnosis to help each other and learn from each other. Many people find comfort in knowing they are not alone.

However, group therapy isn’t a “one size fits all”. Working with an addiction treatment professional is a good way to find the treatment modality that is appropriate for each person, leading to the best path to recovery.

There are many types of programs available, and in many cases, our clients attend multiple types of support groups to figure out what works best for them. Our clients get to choose if they want to attend faith-based, spiritual or secular, evidence-based group therapy sessions. We not only take our clients to local group meetings, we also host some of the below group meetings weekdays and nights.


12-Step is one of the more well-known and commonly used types of recovery support. The basic premise of this model is that people can help each another achieve and maintain abstinence from substance abuse, but that healing cannot come about unless people with addictions surrender to a higher power.

SMART Recovery®

The SMART Recovery is an abstinence-based program that teaches common sense self-help procedures designed to empower clients to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. It uses a form of cognitive behavioral therapy called REBT to help individuals manage their beliefs and emotions that lead to drinking or using.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a 12-Step program that adds religion to the mix to help people suffering from addiction and abuse. It especially works for people who want more of a personal relationship with God rather than a global understanding of a higher power that 12-Step promotes.

Refuge Recovery

Refuge Recovery is one of a new breed of spiritual treatment programs and support groups that is much more about an approach to life than it is religion. This program is not about a higher power – it’s about an inner power. Refuge Recovery is about our own accountability.
