Group therapy has been shown to help with many conditions, including mental health and addiction. If you are new to recovery, group therapy is a useful tool that can help you understand your triggers and help you know what it is like to be in someone else’s shoes.

During group, therapy may explore many topics.

7 group therapy topics

Here are seven group therapy topics you may discuss in recovery. 

  • Identify and talk about triggers for substance abuse. Knowing what your triggers are can help you understand what to watch for through and after recovery to reduce the risk of relapse.  You can come up with healthy ways to deal with those triggers. 
  • Learn and recognize alternative activities that you can involve yourself in that are not related to substance abuse. This means behaviors that you did not engage in during your addiction, such as sports, woodworking, sewing, learning to cook.
  • Self-exploration by describing yourself, what your goals are, and what you might like to change about yourself helps you learn who you are; this also goes along with triggers.
