Clients learn to express themselves and engage with others who have been where they are and can relate to the same life struggles. Through this like-mindedness, friendships and trust grow, providing a safe space to deal with emotions. In addition, the interaction empowers participants by encouraging them to offer assistance, provide feedback, or challenge other group members in a loving yet accountable environment.

Life skills is a general outpatient group which can be attended via zoom or in person. This group focuses on time management, financial management, setting schedules and realistic goal setting. Life Skills provides a safe place for clients to practice these skills, where they can receive input and ideas from other members and provide supportive feedback in turn.
The Relapse Prevention group is can be attended via zoom or in person. The group is a reformulated cognitive-behavioral model of relapse and helps development of mindfulness-based relapse prevention strategies. Rather than being viewed as a state or ending point of failure, relapse is considered a process that begins prior to and extends beyond the return to the target behavior. We explore 3 areas: reducing relapse and its severity; enhancing durability of treatment gains; and matching prevention strategies to each client’s characteristics and lifestyles.
David versus Goliath
