Treatment Modalities

In addition to individual therapy and traditional methods, individuals with addictive and compulsive behavior disorders can be treated with group and family modalities. This unit explores various group and family treatment modalities, including group therapy and multifamily therapy behavioral treatment.
Group therapy and multifamily behavioral treatment for compulsive behavior disorders are structured groups that are closed and time-limited. Behavioral treatment can be applied effectively using a group modality, with results similar to individual treatment. In particular, juveniles benefit from multifamily group therapy because the underlying issue is related to their environments.
The value of group treatment and 12-step support group models has been reported for use with anxiety disorders and addictive disorders, including compulsive gambling and eating disorders. In practice, one must often consider the setting, family, and client needs when designing an individualized treatment plan.
