THERAPEUTIC GROUPS

Addiction Education

Addiction is when a person has intense craving for the pleasure brought about by something and loses control just to obtain and consume that something (even after knowing the adverse consequences involved). At Unity Place, we believe that clients can overcome drug addiction, and that full recovery is possible.

Anger Management

Anger is often the result of being frustrated or feeling powerless against a situation or person. When constant uncontrolled anger gets in the way of normal living – affecting relationships, work, and overall well-being – anger management can help. It aims to help clients understand the reasons for chronic anger, and how to express it in a healthier way that won’t harm them and others.

Coping & Stress Management

Stress has become such a fixture of modern life that many people complain about its effects on both their mental and physical health. Our experienced health professionals can help clients cope with and manage stress using a variety of therapies and treatments.

Relapse Prevention

Addiction is an uphill battle and keeping sober isn’t a walk in the park. At Unity Place, relapse prevention is all about cognitive behavior therapy so that clients can be aware and understand their chances for relapse. The aims are maintaining sobriety and reducing relapses significantly. 

Self Esteem 

Low self-esteem can be the result of a variety of things such as depression, anxiety, bullying, or abuse. Unity Place is proud to have professional staff and therapists to assist clients on building a healthy view of self and others in order to raise their self-worth, while taking into consideration their individual journeys so that therapy can be personalized and more effective.

Symptoms Recognition

Learning to recognize the symptoms of a group of disorders, including major depressive, bipolar, substance-induced mood, and mood disorders is key to getting the proper diagnosis and treatment for the client. Important factors such as risk factors, prevalence, family history, and others are taken into careful consideration.

Educate in the area of social psychology of medicine as it relates to issues of compliance.

Co-Occuring Groups

With comprehensive care, the co-occuring services at Unity Place help clients recover from both disorders at the same time before the symptoms worsen.

The focus of this group is teaching people skills to help them take a more active role in their lives, taking more initiative, and utilizing whatever influence they have to effectively make decisions and achieve their goals.

Mindfulness/Meditation

Research shows that after practicing mindfulness, the grey matter in your brain’s amygdala – a region known for its role in stress – can become smaller.
