Group Therapy Sessions For Teens: Dual Diagnosis Treatment and Mental Health Services
Dual Diagnosis and mental health challenges often coexist for the adolescent population. While parental intervention is necessary and essential for a teen’s recovery process, there may be additional underlying challenges at work. If this is the case, professional assistance may be required.
Often spoken of as a negative influence, peer pressure can also work positively in a young person’s life. This is one of the foundational principles of group therapy sessions. Here, the pressure is positive and self-driven but inspired by supportive group dynamics.
At BasePoint Academy, we’re committed to working alongside teens and families to identify their specific triggers regarding mental health and/or substance use/dual diagnosis challenges. Based on our findings, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan for individual therapy and group therapy sessions to foster sustainable sobriety and personal stability.
What Is Group Therapy?
A group therapy treatment program is a form of group counseling that has proven highly effective with teens. Those participating in group therapy sessions will benefit over a long-term period of time as they develop new skills and habits and experience intellectual and emotional growth.
Group therapy provides an open and safe space to address and process behavioral health concerns in a group setting. This form of effective therapy takes place in a supportive group environment where life-changing treatment is directed towards improving the health and wellness of one person.
Support groups require the patient to participate in interpersonal process groups with other group members. These support groups consist of a group leader and other group members in addition to the patient. Group sessions are developed by an experienced group therapist.
Our support groups are attended by group members who have no existing connection outside of the group therapy setting. The various modalities of group therapies include Behavioral Therapy, group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Group Psychotherapy, and coping and interpersonal skill development groups.

Our qualified group therapists have designed our teen group therapy sessions to be a safe space for discussing topics that are often difficult or undesirable. We give our teens and patients the opportunity to participate in group discussions, develop strong interpersonal skills, practice coping skills, and receive relapse prevention training.

Some of our group treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Experiential Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
While every patient’s journey is different, we have seen the benefits of group therapy impact the lives of teens exponentially. We believe group therapy is an essential part of a teen’s treatment process and is a standard element of our treatment improvement protocol.
Our goal is to equip and guide our teens to develop resiliency by implementing the effective coping strategies they need to safely navigate the treatment process in a healthy and sustainable fashion. Our evidence-based treatment practices have been designed for each patient to get the most out of individual therapy as well as group treatment.

While they will also attend an individual therapy sessions throughout the treatment process, the group setting is a highly valuable facet of healing and recovery.
