Addiction Counseling Services that Work


Group Counseling Services in South Florida

PCG offers Group Counseling services that provide programs where individuals can solve problems and resolve issues related to drug and alcohol use through the development of supportive relationships with fellow group members. During group addiction therapy, group members develop the necessary skills and tools for achieving a lasting recovery by engaging in the process of sharing and receiving feedback. This allows for support and encouragement, in a safe and supportive environment. The role of a group counselor at Portner Counseling Group includes guiding the counseling process, modeling healthy leadership skills, and providing support and feedback to all group members. Our counselors ensure that a safe and supportive environment is maintained at all times, while fostering strong relationships.

Our addiction group counseling in South Florida is developed to address the unique needs of the individuals they serve. We specifically design group programs for adolescents, young adults, and adults. In each of these groups, the unique developmental and cultural needs of the group members are the foundation for the creation of each process.

  • Remain open-minded
  • Give and learn to accept constructive feedback
  • Focus on the group dynamics
  • Avoid long-winded monologues

Group therapy has been proven to be extremely effective in treating addiction by providing motivation to attend sessions with others present. Our addiction counseling services in South Florida provide an environment where group members feel open to share information and experiences with one another, which can increase confidence and self-esteem. Individuals can learn to avoid engaging in destructive behaviors like actively seeking out drugs and alcohol, and instead begin to demonstrate healthy behaviors with the guidance of group therapy at PCG.

Group therapy sessions allow all members to develop self-awareness by listening to others with similar issues. Finding your own experience to be similar with others is often therapeutic and encourages members to open up more in a session. The incorporation of different points of view fosters healthy communication in a group setting, which we strive to do at Portner Counseling. All of our counselors are trained to facilitate positive and supportive group sessions so our members can stay on the right track to recovery. The tools that our group members learn are properly transformed into long-term recovery methods.

Portner Counseling Group is a premier addiction counseling center that helps individuals overcome substance abuse through our effective group counseling services.
