Support Group Therapy
Floyd Behavioral Health provides community members with access to
mental health services and support close to home through group therapy meetings.
Our weekly support groups help address the needs of:
teen mental health through our Expressive Art Therapy for Teens class
individuals recovering from alcohol and drug addiction through Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous (AA/NA) meetings
people who need help dealing with anger through our Anger Management Group
those needing support for depression
We also offer a monthly Dementia and Alzheimer's Support and Education Group for anyone caregiving for someone with this disease.
All groups are led by either a licensed therapist or a trained community moderator.
Expressive Art Therapy for Teens
With the help of a certified counselor, teenagers will participate in various art forms, which allows the individual to express their own emotions through creative expression.
This group is beneficial for teens who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem issues, interpersonal relationship conflicts, learning problems and eating disorders.
No artistic skills needed. All materials are provided.
This group meets every Thursday (except holidays) from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health. Registration is not required.
Dementia/Alzheimer’s Support and Education Group
A licensed therapist will help family and friends of those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease learn to understand:
- the disease process
- possible complications
This group will be beneficial for caregivers of a person with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and will help them work through their feelings of grief and loss.
Support group meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month (except holidays) from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health. Registration is not required.
Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous (AA/NA)
This weekly group meeting provides support to men and women who want to recover from alcoholism and/or addiction. Attendees share their experiences and encourage each other to overcome their addictions.
The only requirement for attending is a desire to stop drinking and/or the desire to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous (AA/NA) is led by a community moderator.
This group meets every Wednesday (except holidays) from 7 – 8 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health. Registration is not required.
Family and friends are encouraged to
attend Al-Anon meetings held at the same time.
This weekly support group is open to anyone whose life has been affected negatively by another person's drinking or drug use. Attendees meet and share feelings, frustrations and experiences with others whose lives have also been impacted by a loved one’s addiction.
Al-Anon is led by a community moderator.
This group meets every Wednesday (except holidays) from 7 – 8 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health.
Anger Management Group
A licensed therapist will walk participants through a series of 12 classes to acquire anger management strategies. Equipped with these new strategies, participants can work to reduce aggressive behavior and anger in their daily lives.
Attendance at every class is required to obtain a completion certificate. This certificate is recognized by the legal system, if needed.
This group is for adults age 18 and older.
Classes are held every Tuesday for 12 weeks from June 8 – August 24 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health.
Participants must register prior to the first class by calling 706.509.3500.
Depression Support Group
Participants in the group meetings will be guided through their experience with depression, and will find others who can offer encouragement, empathy, understanding and support.
This twice-a-month support group for adults 18 and older is ideal for individuals who need support from beyond their circle of friends and family members. It is preferred but not mandatory that participants be actively receiving therapy for depression.
Group meetings are held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday (except holidays) from 2 – 3 p.m. at Floyd Behavioral Health. Registration is not required.
