We work with you to determine if out-patient support and therapy fit your needs. If not, we can refer to in-patient facilities or intensive out-patient programs and welcome you back when you are ready for our services.
After getting to know you, we provide education, including recommended books, movies, online programs that augment our work and help you understand the nature of your alcohol or substance abuse. In doing so, we build on your motivation to stay sober.
Identification of triggers
As you come to understand more about the underlying factors leading to your abuse or addiction, we help you identify triggers causing you to want to use and, with you, develop coping mechanisms that reduce the odds of returning to alcohol or drugs to cope.
Working through relapse
It is not unusual for a client who is committed to sobriety to relapse. If this happens, we will help you identify the reasons for relapse and restore more effective coping mechanisms.
We accompany you on a healing therapeutic journey to explore family and other relational dynamics, and to address co-existing psychological and emotional concerns. Above all, we listen closely and walk with you through the sometimes turbulent and always challenging journey to grow into a new life experience of sobriety.
For Families or Loved Ones of an Alcohol or Drug Abusing Individual
Alcoholism and drug abuse affect others in the individual’s life, often causing pain, fear, shame, guilt, or a sense of helplessness. Members of our Alcohol and Substance Abuse Recovery Support and Psychotherapy Team often meet with family members or loved ones to provide psychoeducation about abuse and addiction and to counsel them about sound approaches to the individual who is drinking or using substances.
