Process Groups Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, where life moves fast and challenges are many, finding support is key to healing – whether from mental health issues or substance use disorders. 

At Luxe Recovery, our process groups provide a space where you can share your journey, learn from others, and find strength in numbers. This therapeutic setting allows individuals to help others while benefiting from the group’s collective wisdom. 

Here, you’re part of a group that gets it – everyone’s working towards recovery, just like you. It’s a place to connect, grow, and heal together in LA.

What Are Process Groups?

Process groups are a type of group therapy where people talk about their feelings and reactions with a therapist guiding the discussion.

This approach helps individuals understand their behaviors and interactions with others by focusing on the group’s dynamics – receiving support and encouragement from the group of people – which is fundamental in psychotherapy.

Unlike specific-topic groups, process groups let members explore a wide range of personal issues through the lens of group interactions. Our therapist ensures the space is safe for everyone to express themselves and learn from each other.

This method is beneficial for improving how people communicate and connect with others, as it mirrors real-life social situations. 

How Process Group Therapy Helps with Mental Health Conditions

Our experienced therapists lead process groups, providing a nurturing environment for individuals grappling with mental health challenges like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD. Here, participants explore emotions, develop coping strategies, and strengthen resilience in a supportive setting.

Through guided discussions and tailored activities, individuals gain insight into their emotional patterns and triggers, empowering them to manage symptoms effectively.

With personalized care and understanding, our process groups foster connection and encouragement among peers, facilitating meaningful growth and healing on the journey to mental wellness.

How Process Groups Aid Substance Recovery

Our substance abuse and addiction recovery groups provide a supportive community for those fighting addiction. Led by skilled therapists, these sessions encourage individuals to share experiences, discuss recovery challenges, and explore strategies for staying sober. 

Our process groups are designed to support recovery from a wide range of substance dependencies, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Cocaine
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opioids
  • Heroin

Through peer support and shared experiences, participants develop coping skills, gain insight into addiction triggers, and understand their underlying causes.

We believe in the power of process groups to empower individuals in their recovery journey, fostering a supportive community where members can achieve and maintain sobriety while rebuilding their lives.

Our Treatments for Process Groups

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Process groups incorporate DBT to equip members with coping skills for stress management, emotional regulation, and enhancing interpersonal relationships. Through group interactions, participants practice and refine these skills, applying them in real-life recovery scenarios.

Holistic Therapy

Art therapy and massage therapy, among other holistic approaches, are seamlessly integrated into our process groups to address the physical and emotional aspects of recovery. These therapies provide creative and non-verbal outlets for expression, offering stress relief and enhancing the overall group experience.


For individuals grappling with trauma alongside substance abuse, EMDR sessions may be integrated into process groups. These sessions aid in processing traumatic memories, reducing their impact on the individual’s recovery journey.

This holistic approach supports healing within the group context, addressing both mental and emotional aspects.

Levels of Care for Process Group Therapy 

We offer a comprehensive range of care options within our process group model, addressing both mental health and substance abuse concerns:


Our process groups provide support for individuals undergoing detox, offering a space to share experiences and strategies for managing withdrawal symptoms and cravings related to both mental health and substance abuse issues.

Residential Treatment

Individuals in residential treatment benefit from immersive support through process groups, fostering early recovery in a structured environment for both mental health and substance abuse challenges. This therapeutic community provides a safe space for healing and growth.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)

IOP process groups offer a flexible treatment approach, allowing participants to apply coping strategies and insights gained in group sessions to their daily lives while continuing their recovery journey for both mental health concerns and substance abuse.

Aftercare Treatment

Aftercare process groups focus on maintaining the progress made during intensive treatment phases, offering ongoing support and a platform for addressing challenges in long-term sobriety and mental wellness, encompassing both mental health and substance abuse aspects.
