Once your rehab experience ends, does your group therapy have to as well? Not at all.
Many people find continuing therapy post-rehab to be helpful. You may have lingering issues you’d like to discuss with a caring counselor. Attending regular AA meetings is another way to keep yourself on the right track.
Counseling can be beneficial if you’ve dealt with a combination of alcohol and depression, which often go hand in hand. While you might think alcohol makes you feel better, the opposite is actually true. People who abuse alcohol are more likely to suffer from depression.
Being actively involved in alcohol group therapy can give you much-needed support. When you return home, you’ll face triggers at some point. Turning toward a therapy group may make a big difference in your continued sobriety.
