For more information on group therapy in general:

Relapse Prevention — Phase II Substance Use Recovery Group

This group is designed for adolescents and adults who are currently striving for abstinence based recovery. The focus of this group is to develop interpersonal relationship skills beneficial to more comfortable and stable recovery. Most groups spend little time discussing drinking and drug use. Our treatment model is shaped by the 12-Steps but clients choose their own personal social support and relationship rebuilding path. We offer individual therapy for clients seeking additional assessment, recovery education, and training on social support groups.
Dr. David Moore and Melissa Byrd LMHC lead this group.

When: Mondays from 6:00-7:00pm

Where: Group room #119.

Cost: Group is covered by most insurance plans or $30 out of pocket for out of network and private pay members.

Women’s Group

This group is for women who have experienced sexual victimization at any point in their lifetimes. Some women may have had counseling or therapy in the past, but the treatment lacked sufficient trauma focus to relieve anxiety or restore comfort to sexual activities. This treatment process uses non-confrontive existential-humanistic counseling to resolve past traumas. Group members are supportive without giving advice or interpreting others’ personal history.
