A drug counselor devises a personalized treatment plan
You and your counselor can address the problems you need to resolve. In fact, we focus on the most pressing issues first. And, we’ll establish your immediate and long-term goals and decide on a treatment process that is personalized to help you.
We’ll explore your problem or problems. That way, you can see how they are affecting your life, your attitudes and feelings. Often drugs or alcohol seem like effective ways to cope. However, in many cases, when they are the solution, they later become the problem.
Drug and/or alcohol counseling can make a difference in overcoming underlying problems:
- Do you have unwanted behavior patterns?
- Are you struggling with unhelpful thought patterns?
- Is it hard to face the damage that drugs or alcohol is causing?
- Is getting motivated to do something about drinking or taking drugs difficult?
- Are there things you can’t cope with or accept?
- Do past traumatic experiences still bother you?
- Are daily situations in life getting you down?
- Do you have reactive emotional responses that seem out of your control?
- Has your life lost a sense of purpose and meaning?
