What is relapse prevention?

Outpatient group therapy using motivational, behavioral and cognitive therapy to support your recovery from mental health and substance use.

What to expect from your sessions

Group sessions provide positive support, hope, encouragement and feedback from other group members. They give you the opportunity to process how your substance use disorder impacts your thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Group session topics include:

  • coping with relapse
  • denial and projection
  • Hepatitis C & HIV/AIDS
  • post-acute withdrawal symptoms
  • problem solving negative emotional states
  • rationalization.

Topics are processed and applied to your everyday life, relationships and concerns.
