Coping with Triggers
The triggers for a relapse may be classified as environmental triggers, re-exposure triggers and stress triggers. These stimuli can cause a neurochemical response that induces an intense craving for the drug that may lead to a relapse. In this group we will explore each client’s triggers and find ways to cope with them.
Understanding our Emotions
In this group we learn practical ways to communicate with family, friends, and coworkers, manage your emotions so you can regain those stressed or lost relationships. We can learn from other group members that you are not alone in feeling angry, sad, anxious, stressed or overly emotional.
Relationships can be healing or destructive. The primary purpose of a process group is to explore your way of being in relationships. This could be relationships with family, friends, or partner. We will look at topics such as boundaries, enabling behaviors, communication, and more.
Expressive Art Therapy
Expressive art group therapy is a multimodal approach involving a combination of writing, drama, movement, painting and drawing. A person is not required to have ANY artistic ability to use or benefit from this group. Expressive art therapy is another way to uncover and explore deeper parts of ourselves.

The power of process groups lies in the unique opportunity to receive multiple perspectives, support, encouragement and feedback from other individuals. These interpersonal interactions can provide group members an opportunity to deepen their level of self-awareness and to learn how they relate to others.
Process groups are typically unstructured. There isn’t a specific topic for each group session and members are welcome to bring any issues to the group that they feel are important. The primary focus of therapy in the group is on the interactions among group members. Members are encouraged to give support and feedback to others, and to work with the reactions and responses that other members’ contributions bring up for them.

Looking into our nutrition, inventory of physical health, and connection to a higher power are just some of the group topics.
