About the Course:
Social Support Group (Section VI): From Matrix Intensive Outpatient Treatment for People With Stimulant Use Disorders will help clients learn or relearn socialization skills. The Social Support Group assists clients in learning how to re-socialize with clients who are further along in the program and in their recovery in a familiar, safe environment. This group also is beneficial to the experienced participants who often strengthen their own recovery by serving as role models and staying mindful of the basic tenets of abstinence. Social Support group sessions focus on a combination of discussion of recovery issues being experienced by group members and discussion of specific, one-word recovery topics.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Matrix Social Support Group (Section VI): From The Counselor’s Treatment Manual: Matrix Intensive Outpatient Treatment for People With Stimulant Use Disorders created by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2010.
