Rehab patients from a variety of treatment programs come together to share stories, talk about their struggles, and give each other advice on how to manage drug cravings.

Due to Freud's pessimism on human nature, there is a huge power distance.in the transference relationship as the counsellor is taking the directive approach.

Members of the treatment centre do not only have trouble with substance abuse but may have another problem along with it such as depression. Due to this, the therapeutic community model is the main model used because it is holistic. This model is also the main model used because the program not only focuses on helping individuals recover from substance abuse but also help them be able to become employed or go back to school when they set back out into the world.

This writer will use the group process to capitalize on significant happening in the here-and now interaction of the groups to help members reflect on meaning of their experiences (Gladding, 2012). The main therapeutic function of Mayo’s existential approach is to help the client confront normal anxiety, which is an unavoidable part of the human condition (Garrow, & Walker, 2001). The Authors suggest the slights encouragement will bring in an extraordinary amount of material related to concerns about death. Moreover, Person centered approach will provides the opportunity for deeply negative or despairing experience surrounding death to be expressed, fully felt and received empathically as a reality of experience(Humboldt, & Leal, 2012). In the working stage members will be able to address the anxiety that death generates and will have significant implications for the practice of group (Garrow, & Walker,
Finally, both issues require the individual to obtain the life skills and coping capabilities necessary to keep things in check. The question remains, “Where can you get treatment for both your addiction and anger issues at the same time?” The reality is you might have some difficulty finding a place that deals with both addiction and anger issues.

Therefore, the CBT is the most suitable theory to find the right solution as the best way to deal with this kind of problem is to solve it at the root cause, which is to change one cognitive processing; the way one perceives and evaluates life
An emphasis is placed on the importance of identifying warning signs and risk factors for depression and suicide amongst teens. According to the research conducted by King and Vidourek (2012) early detection and suicidal warning signs is seen to be crucial for effective intervention. Teenagers need to be encouraged to be more proactive when it comes to their personal mental health. Positive coping mechanisms such as problem-solving skills, effective communication skills, and good conflict resolution skills are all essential in lessening the likelihood that a teen exhibiting depressive behaviors will go forth and take their own life.
