Codependency Support Groups
Codependency is a personality style characterized by a need to constantly help others, especially one's primary partner, and especially a person who's addicted. Codependent people usually put aside their own needs in order to try to meet the needs of another person or other people. If you're looking for codependency counseling in Portland, or help for someone who's codependent, these trained codependency Portland support groups, or codependency Portland counselors, will assist.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Portland Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Portland is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Portland are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
