Summary 

Lori McGruder joins Katie to discuss her men’s relapse prevention group. Many doctors and teachers struggling with substance use join Lori’s group - this makes the work more challenging but the group composition also provides a unique experience for its members. For example, physicians are reminded that other physicians face the same problems they do. Throughout the conversation, they discuss what it’s like to run a substance use therapy group, what to do when someone relapses, and why group therapy can be better than private therapy in these instances. 

Lori McGruder is an EMDRIA approved EMDR therapist and Board Certified National Counselor. She has been providing counseling services for more than 20 years.
