Recovery Skills Group

Add to Calendar: Outlook | Google

The Heartland Family Service Recovery Skills Group is designed to support individuals who have successfully completed substance abuse treatment and value the on-going nature of recovery. Research shows that the longer someone is in treatment, the better their outcomes.
Our counselors use the Living in Balance program, which is based on a foundation of evidence-based, substance abuse treatment approaches to effectively address the physiological, psychological, and social factors of substance use.
Treatment methods include motivational enhancement therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy, among others. Using written exercises and group discussion, the Recovery Skills Group provides opportunities to pinpoint discrepancies between one’s goals and behaviors and between perceived benefits and consequences of substance use, thereby augmenting the motivation and determination to remain sober.
Recovery Skills Group Topics:
• Physical Wellness
• Human Needs and Social Relationships
• Family Matters
• You and Your Parents
• Effects of Substance Use on Mental Health
• Relapse Prevention I: Building a Recovery Support System
• Relapse Prevention II: Making the Best Decisions
The Recovery Skills Group is open to adults ages 19 and older, following successful completion of any level of substance abuse treatment. A copy of the original evaluation, including a discharge summary from the referring treatment provider, is required.
