Substance Abuse & Relapse Prevention Counseling
Depending on several variables that I will assess during the first session, counseling for substance abuse may be completed on an individual basis with me. However, some people require medical detox. Some others require longer term interventions at a higher level of care than individual, outpatient counseling with me can provide. In these instances, I can explain your options and help you find a treatment center that will fit your needs and your budget.
While I am aware that some people do manage to get clean and sober without them, I am a very strong proponent of 12-step recovery groups. They are free, supportive, and have nearly 100 years of history helping people recover and thrive. Why not go? I can answer your questions about AA, NA, Al-Anon, Nar-Anon, ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics) OA (Overeaters Anonymous), step work, and why it is that these groups are tremendously effective for millions of people around the globe. They are an excellent adjunct to therapy.
If you are already in recovery, I welcome the opportunity to work with you. I am well-versed in relapse prevention. I am also experienced at helping clients in recovery navigate relationships, careers, and self-growth once recovery from the chemical addiction is addressed and maintained.
Call me today and interview me to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to your call.
