Group therapy is a powerful and effective way for your child to overcome substance abuse or a mental health condition.

Having social support, accountability, and feeling of belonging are all critical during your teen’s recovery.
Venture Academy offers group therapy activities at our treatment center. Our activities are designed to meet your teen’s particular needs as they grow beyond their dependency on drugs or alcohol. It’s time to find out how group therapy and our teen substance abuse treatment center can help you.
What is the Purpose of Group Therapy?
Group therapy aims to help your teenager overcome their addiction with the help and support of both a licensed therapist and peers who are also on the road to recovery. Regardless of whether your child is suffering from a mental health condition, a behavioural problem, or a teen drug addiction, group therapy seeks to help them overcome their current condition without feeling alone.
Venture Academy provides group therapy activities that are empowering, educational, and thought-provoking. We offer group discussions so that your teen can gain insight into many of the toughest questions surrounding their struggle. Group therapy teaches your child to be empathetic, willing to learn and to share and encourage others.
Group Therapy Activities That We Provide
There are several different options that your teen can choose as therapy. The key is to find activities that will meet their personal needs. Some of the activities we offer include:
- Introductory “get to know you” activities
- Question and answer discussions
- Team-building activities
- Inside and outside recreational group activities
- Creativity activities
Many of our activities center around issues that are relevant to your teen’s problems. They are all designed to help teenagers grow and learn more about how they can overcome their traumas, mental health conditions, or substance abuse.
Benefits of Group Therapy Activities
Many of the issues that teens deal with often make them feel alone and that no one understands their situation. This is one of the reasons why teens often withdraw even when they are mentally or emotionally crying out for help.
This is why group therapy activities are suitable for teens. There are several benefits, such as:
- Getting the support they need from peers going through the same thing
- Receiving support from people their age
- Learning from others and sharing their wisdom from their life experiences
- Having someone to talk to when they are feeling weak or vulnerable
- Realizing that they are loved and supported regardless of what they are going through
Like anyone else, your teen may be resistant to participating in group therapy activities. However, once they see how these activities benefit their lives, they may wonder how they ever got through their struggle without them.
