Group Counselling

Accountability, honesty, and community support are important aspects of the recovery program at Harvest House. Through group counselling sessions that occur three times a week, residents are given the opportunity to share about their experiences and struggles while receiving feedback and support from counsellors and other residents. These sessions provide an environment of absolute honesty, self-awareness, and open sharing and encourage residents to reflect on the root causes of their addiction. As they learn to be honest about their own struggles, residents also get the chance to learn from the experiences of staff members and residents who are further along in recovery. Bringing together most of the residents and staff on a regular basis, the group counselling sessions provide a forum in which to address a variety of individual and collective issues. Ultimately, the goal of the group counselling sessions is to foster support, openness, and accountability within the Harvest House community.
