Abstract

This study examined the effectiveness of the use of group therapy as an intervention on the depression and self-esteem levels of a substance abuser. The study was based on the premise that participation in a group counseling setting would increase the clients self-esteem and decrease the client's depression. This study was conducted over a three-month period with instruments administered during each weekly session. The results indicated that the client experienced significant improvement in self-esteem as well as depression level.
