The Pine Rest North Shore Clinic provides group therapy for men and women struggling with addiction, age 18 and older. Research shows group therapy to be the most effective form of treatment for persons with addiction, since they can learn from each other’s real world experiences and benefit from the support. Our Recovery Groups are primarily designed to treat addiction issues, however, individuals also diagnosed with a mental health disorder, such as anxiety and depression, are also warmly welcomed.

Attendees can expect to learn:
• Early core recovery skills
• Relapse prevention skills
• Building support networks
• Managing difficult emotions and behaviors
• Introduction to the 12 Steps

Once registered, individuals may join the group at any time. New patients are accepted upon request. The length of time an individual participates in the group is determined with the patient’s input and clinical needs. Many
patients are active in both individual and group therapy.
