Catalyst: How it Works

Treatment is customized to meet your individual, unique needs. Though the Catalyst schedule varies at each location, most provide the following components:

Process Group

Group counseling is a powerful and key component of Catalyst. These sessions will help you:

  • Integrate the spiritual, emotional and relational aspects of your life.
  • Discover where you are right now and set realistic goals for where you would like to be.
  • Learn how to establish healthy boundaries for yourself and with others.
  • Gain insight through interaction with others in the group.
  • Learn and develop effective communication and interrelationship skills.
  • Share feelings and learn from other clients in a safe, controlled environment.

One-on-One

During your time at Catalyst, you will be assigned a personal therapist who will be dedicated to helping you:

  • Identify and clarify personal problems and issues.
  • Understand developmental issues related to your relationship difficulties and emotional problems.
  • Learn, practice, and develop new coping skills that are practical and applicable to your everyday life.
  • Discover family issues that have contributed to unhealthy choices and lifestyles.
  • Prepare for leaving the program and continuing the healing process.

Spiritual Growth Group

A specific goal of Catalyst is to restore, renew and refresh your relationship with God. This group will help you:

  • Discover and work through the emotional and spiritual obstacles that prevent you from experiencing God’s purpose and plan for your life.
  • Understand yourself better and learn how to more fully and completely experience God’s love, forgiveness, and acceptance.
  • Develop practical strategies that will help you lead a life of spiritual integrity on a daily basis.

Daily life skills groups are an important part of Catalyst, where our team will help you grow in:

  • Effective communication
  • Health and wellness
  • Setting boundaries
