Group Therapy & Support

Build Your Sobert Support System

We believe a strong group of friends and family is essential to your recovery – no one goes through this alone. By building a network of accountability and mutual trust, you’ll never feel alone in your sobriety. Forming a community in recovery cushions you against external pressures and reminds you that others are going through the same difficult journey that you’ve undertaken. As you connect and reconnect with your support system, you’ll build responsibility and a feeling of belonging that will serve you long after your departure from inpatient treatment.

The Importance Of Support In Recovery

The American Psychological Association lists several benefits of group therapy. This method of treatment provides perspective for your own problems, illustrates diversity in background and experiences, and helps improve your confidence in group situations. “Groups can act as a support network and sounding board. Other members of the group often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way.”

Outings, Experiential Therapy, and 12 Step Meetings

Beyond typical meetings, our group sessions include recreational outings to scenic locations and local sites. Hiking in the Hollywood Hills builds community with fellow group members and allows our clients to encounter potential real-world triggers with clinical support. We also focus on experiential therapy, which sharpens your awareness in order to identify and cope with different potential triggers, teaching clients to live life on life’s terms. Concise Recovery Center has standard 12 Step support groups, so that you can get into the habit of attending communal meetings after your inpatient treatment has concluded. Beginning these meetings while in treatment helps you find out how many are available near your home, and plugs you into your new sober community.


Concise Recovery Center of Los Angeles offers an affordable, comfortable setting for you or a loved one to begin recovery. We encourage you to reach out to us 24/7.

How Does Having a Solid Support Group In Recovery Help With Sobriety?

A positive group setting can be the support system you need to overcome your addiction. Recovery is an individual process, and throughout your experience with our program, you are conditioned to become more in-tune with your own thoughts and feelings. But while the individuality cannot be neglected, there is significant power in being in a group of other people who may be encountering similar circumstances to yours. Group therapy inserts you in an environment where individuals are actively trying to better themselves. This can be a stark contrast to your life pre-treatment, where you may have been surrounded by people who were negative influences. By conversing with like-minded people, you can get a psychological boost in knowing that you are not alone on your journey.

What Is The Purpose of Going to Meetings?

Group therapy gives you a voice. There is no telling when you may face anger, sadness, or stress because of circumstances that are outside of your control. By being able to articulate these feelings in a constructive way, you have an outlet that will help you maintain your sobriety. Many of our clients have considered group meetings to be an indispensable piece of their recovery process. 

Support Groups That Concise Offers

Group therapy allows you to pull from the community of other individuals in our program, and it shows you first-hand that your battle with addiction doesn’t need to be faced alone. In these group meetings, you’ll have the opportunity to present your story, hear the experiences of others, and get additional support to manage co-occurring conditions and traumas. Concise Recovery uses the 12-step framework for its group therapy sessions.  12-Step programs teach people how to address their addiction with honesty.  Within the first few weeks of the program, participating members can ask for a “sponsor” to act as a mentor and personal advocate.  A sponsor is officially recognized by the group as an individual that has successfully completed the program and is capable of providing leadership and accountability training to new members. The strength of the 12-step meeting is the sharing of experiences. This is designed to give you hope, give you new ways to cope positively, and help you approach your past behaviors with authentic accountability.
