It's never to late, Break the Addiction

Psychoeducational Groups

At Sprout Health California, we think that education is among the key elements that lead to successful treatments.

Psychoeducational GroupsWhen it comes to most anything in life, nothing trumps education. We offer numerous programs that address and help cure substance abuse disorders, behavioral problems, conditions that co-occur, and mental health issues. Educating key people in a person’s life can help pave the way for their full recovery. Here is why.

When a person has mental coping issues, or is challenged with substance abuse, their lives are not the only ones affected. Family members, friends, wives, husbands, children, coworkers, and relatives are all usually the first ones to feel the effects of a disrupted life. For the afflicted individual, education is something that can help them better understand their affliction, and to lead a more productive life going forward.

What Psychoeducational Groups Can Provide

For one, they help individuals to gain deeper insights about their condition as to what caused it, and what can be done to remedy it. In group settings, a variety of topics can be introduced to get clients acclimated toward their recovery goals. Topics such as stress management and how to identify and reduce symptoms are typical topics. In a group setting, individuals do not feel that all of the attention is placed on them. Skills and knowledge can be shared, and individual can be encouraged by the group to “stay the course’ on their personal road to recovery.

Groups can offer the following:

  • Information and tips on managing medication. It is important for people to adhere strictly to their recommended treatments.
  • Support for preventing relapse. Staying sober is critical for any type of addiction. There are definite relapse triggers that will tempt an individual to return to their old behaviors. They can learn the warnings that signal a trigger is about to happen. When a relapse happens, a person can fall into a guilt trip, and continue their behavior because they see themselves as failures.
  • Help with managing money. Financial management is important for a variety of reasons, and can help anyone gain a better grip in life. Financial management can start out as a day-to-day endeavor. Before long, you will start reaping the benefits of smart financial handling.
  • Help with finding a good balance of mental-wellness. When you are mentally well and alert, your entire life can take on new meaning. Good mental health is a great feeling.
  • Help with creating good nutrition habits. For all-around health, it is crucial to practice good nutrition. Your body and brain will thank you for years to come.
  • Help to stop smoking. Smoking is addictive. There is no one who will argue that point. People can become addicted to simply holding a cigarette in their hand, let alone becoming addicted to nicotine. We can offer tips and give support on how to quit smoking. We can also provide you with additional support services in your neighborhood.
  • We can introduce you to art therapy and music. Music has always been known, the right kind, to bring about a relaxed state of mind, body, and soul. Your spouse and family members can also benefit from group sessions. It is important for them to take an active part in your healing process. It helps them to gain a deeper understanding of what you have experienced. They can also learn the importance of resolving conflicts, solving problems, and improving relationships.

Establishing Family Roles

Everyone should have a clearly defined role in the family’s structure. This allows everyone in the family to develop into their role. For the troubled individual, it helps if others know exactly how to help them through their challenging times.

Establishing Family Boundaries

For parents of troubled teenagers, it is critical to establish boundaries that will be followed. Independence should be granted, but not to the point of that person harming themselves or other family members in the process.

Avoiding Co-Dependency and Enabling Relationships

Never enable anyone. It only reinforces their behavior. The reality is that people often seek the least path of resistance. If you have nothing to say or do about faulty behavior, it will surely continue.
