When it comes to treating a behavioral health illness of any kind, therapy is an important part of the rehabilitation process. If you’re looking for psychotherapy treatment, you may have questions regarding the best option for you – individual or group therapy.
Below, we explain the benefits of each. In many cases, our consumers decide to pursue treatment from both types of therapies, as both options can aid the healing process.
Individual treatment involves a one-on-one session between you and a clinician, allowing for a deep examination of your life, emotions and relationships. Treatment pace is based on your vision – it’s a balance of minimizing risk and achieving your goals. Our clinicians’ primary goal is to build a deep trust and understanding with you. The overall result is an intense focus on you as an individual, in an effort to explore and conquer difficult topics that might be contributing to your behavioral health challenges.
Group treatment consists of a single clinician and a group of consumers, all of whom are working to treat similar challenges. Depending on the goals and objectives of the group, the purpose of the session is to share experiences, address symptoms and discuss treatment goals. If you feel more comfortable, motivated and accountable surrounded by peers experiencing similar symptoms and challenges, group treatment might be a great option for you.
