Individuals who are in group therapy will also receive individual therapy with an LADC. Individual therapy is beneficial for treatment planning and being able to work on core issues that are not appropriate or comfortable in a group setting.
Group therapy consists of being with peers that share many of the same struggles. During group therapy, clients share the objectives they have completed and receive feedback from the counselor and other group members. Everyone is counseled as an individual in a group. Group therapy is beneficial for a variety of factors: instillation of hope, universality, gaining knowledge through others experience, and having a sense of belonging, to name a few.
Primary Day Group
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This is an intensive program designed to present information in a format that helps clients gain a fresh perspective in areas they have had difficulty internalizing and putting into practice in their daily struggle with addiction. This is an outcome-based program. Length of time is dependent upon the client’s progress and special needs.
Primary Night Group
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The night group is the same as day group and available for those who work during the day.

Tuesday 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. This is a counselor-facilitated support group for women who struggle with addiction.

The goal of the women’s group is for women to gain insight into women-specific issues surrounding addiction. Clients will learn tools and gain resources on how to handle women’s issues in recovery.
Family Therapy: Group and Individual
This is counselor-facilitated therapy designed for spouses, family members, and friends of people who struggle with addiction to come together with clients and others who share similar experiences. This service is interactive and focuses on the role addiction plays in family dynamics. The goal of family therapy is for family members and clients to gain insight into the nature of addiction and how it affects the whole family. Family members will learn how to identify what behaviors support recovery and what behaviors inhibit recovery, along with learning tools and gaining resources on how to help them.
Friday 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and/or Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Held once a month, Project Learn offers either an 8-, 10-, or 12-hour course.
