Discovery or Recovery? That is the question.
The Discovery Group is a psychodynamic therapy group targeted for clients who are in the pre-contemplation phase related to substance use, abuse, or dependence. These clients have already been assessed as having a significant use pattern. It is NOT a prerequisite of the group to want to stop using. The group goal is to establish a clean, sober, and safe environment to begin exploring new coping options and challenging old ideas about using substances.
Group meeting times and location
The group will meet weekly on Mondays from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. or Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. The venue will be announced prior to the meeting. This group is on-going, and clients are welcome to participate as long as they find it useful. Scheduled breaks will be determined by group members. The maximum number of group members is twelve. The group will not close and new members are welcome to join the group at any time unless the group is full.
