Why participate in group therapy? While it might feel a bit awkward at first so we encourage you to try group for 3 sessions. This is enough time to begin to feel comfortable and most people end up loving group. Here are some reasons that we encourage participation in group therapy:
We currently are providing group therapy via VSee, a HIPPA-compliant video therapy platform. Call or email for days/times/fees

Abstinence-Free, Substance-Related & Addictive Disorders Support Group: In-person & Videoconference
The struggle with substances and addictive behaviors is real. In fact, life is difficult enough without the constant worry and distraction of “wanting and needing more.” An excellent adjunct to 12-step-based support groups, this open group is perfect for those looking to address their personal concerns with substances and/or addiction in a supportive environment of like-minded peers. The group follows a harm reduction model, which is evidence-based and grounded in utilizing psychosocial support, along with a range of positive health practices aimed at reducing risk. Although encouraged, sobriety and abstinence are not required to join.
· The group is open to both women and men, ages 18 and up.
