Specialty Groups for Recovery

Beachway Therapy Center offers specialty groups on grief, loss, and trauma to further enhance the healing process in recovery.  We are offering these groups to provide a safe, intimate, and confidential place for our clients to work through sensitive issues outside of addiction. The client’s primary therapist will appoint those clients suffering from such topics to provide supplemental therapy and get more in depth with underlying issues that may have resulted in or added to their disease of addiction.

Weeks 1 and 2

Grief and Loss

This specialty group consists of individuals who suffer from grief and loss due to death, loss of romantic relationships, friendships, loss of jobs, material possessions, and often times the loss of self that can accompany the disease of addiction.  Over a two week time period the group will:
