For those in recovery from addiction or mental health concerns, group therapy can be an important step in the healing process. In group therapy, individuals meet with a therapist and a small group of fellow clients to discuss their experiences and feelings. This type of therapy can help recovering individuals feel less alone, gain new perspectives on their situation, and learn healthy coping mechanisms. NuLife Behavioral Health’s group therapy program in Massachusetts provides a safe and supportive environment for clients to work through their challenges.
Group therapy can be an important part of addiction or mental health treatment. If you or your loved one is considering a treatment program, knowing what to expect in group therapy can make starting the process a little less daunting.

What Is Group Therapy?
Group therapy is one part of the comprehensive treatment plans offered at NuLife Behavioral Health Massachusetts. It is a form of therapy that involves meeting with a group of fellow clients and a therapist to discuss past experiences with addiction or mental health concerns along with healthy coping skills and ways to navigate challenges in the future.
Group therapy can provide vital support for those in addiction or mental health recovery. It can offer a sense of community and connection, help individuals learn new perspectives and coping mechanisms, and provide accountability and encouragement.
At NuLife Behavioral Health Massachusetts, our group therapy program is led by experienced therapists who understand the unique challenges of addiction and mental health recovery. Our groups are small to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be heard. We offer a variety of group therapy options based on client needs and interests.
What Happens in Group Therapy?
Group therapy can be intimidating for those who have never participated in this type of therapy before. It is important to remember that group therapy is a safe and supportive environment where everyone is working towards the same goal: recovery.
Here’s what you can expect in a typical session:
- You will meet with your group in a private room with your therapist.
- The therapist will start by asking everyone to introduce themselves and share their reason for being in therapy.
- The therapist will then guide the group in discussing the topic of the day. This could involve sharing personal experiences, exploring different emotions, or practicing new coping skills.
- The therapist will encourage everyone to participate, but you are never required to share anything that you are not comfortable sharing.
- At the end of the session, the therapist will ask if there are any closing comments or questions.
Group therapy is a confidential space where client privacy is always respected. What is said in group stays in group.
Why Is Group Therapy Important?
Addiction and mental health concerns can be isolating. Group therapy can help individuals in recovery feel less alone and provide them with vital support. In group therapy, clients can:
- Share their experiences and feelings with others who understand what they are going through
- Gain new perspectives on their situation
- Learn healthy coping mechanisms
- Develop a support system of fellow recovering individuals
- Receive encouragement and accountability
