GENDER GROUPS

Weekly Men's Alcohol & Drug Recovery Group

Weekly Women's Alcohol & Drug Recovery Groups

Our women's and men's groups generally meet once or twice a week for 90 minutes to two hours. The effectiveness of the group for an individual is determined by how much they choose to participate. How much each person shares of themselves is also up to the individual, but there's security in knowing that what’s said

in group, stays in group. We have a combination of both open and closed groups. Open groups are those in

which new members can join at any time. Closed groups are those in which all members begin the group at

the same time. 

 

Group therapy can give you a new perspective on your situation, act as a sounding board and help you see

the solutions in a new light. It provides connection, support and encouragement as well as the opportunity to

re-engage with people, it’s particularly helpful if isolating has become a common practice in your life. Group sharing can provide healing, when an individual gets to share their story and experiences this proves to be really empowering and meaningful. It also has a two-fold effect, it can be incredibly beneficial to the others in the group.

 

Our gender specific group treatment brings women together with women and men with men to work through issues related to addiction and recovery. The gender specific method has been proven to be very effective in helping individuals open up and connect with each other.

 

As humans, we often bond with other people that are similar in some way to us. We may feel more comfortable spending time with people of the same sex, or confiding in someone in our age group. Age, social status, gender, geography, and interests usually bring people together because people who are alike in some way can relate well to each other. The same is true about our addiction therapy programmes, which is why Clinic 77 offers gender specific group therapy.

 

Our men’s group ‘Amplify’ is all about turning up and increasing recovery habits in an individuals life. Our women’s group ‘Focus’ is also about zeroing in and determining what specific recovery strategies will work best for each women. Overall, both men's and women's groups are a practical hands-on-approach, showing you how to integrate recovery into your everyday life. These groups will holistically enrich the quality of your life which will have a spin on effect into a lot of different aspects of your life i.e relationships, family dynamics, work, general health and well-being.
