Over 20 million Americans are classified with alcohol and drug dependency each year. People suffering from drug and alcohol problems are likely to have other behavioral or mental health issues, and the likelihood of relapse during a person's lifelong treatment is a harsh reality.
Not only are counselors called upon to treat people in recovery, they also work to prevent drug and alcohol abuse at an early age and educate parents on how to get involved in their children's exposure to drugs and alcohol.
Our substance abuse counselors help people who have problems with alcohol, drugs, and gambling. They counsel individuals to help them to identify behaviors and problems related to their addiction. Counseling can be done on an individual basis, but is frequently done in a group setting and can include crisis counseling, daily or weekly counseling, or drop-in counseling supports. Our ounselors are trained to assist in developing personalized recovery programs that help to establish healthy behaviors and provide coping strategies.
