Frequently-Asked Questions

Yes, we treat pre-teens, teens, and adults in all age groups, recognizing that each group has unique needs even though they may share similar substance disorders, drug addiction or alcoholism, substance use disorders or emotional health concerns.

For example, we offer women's, teen and men's therapy groups. 

Every client's treatment plan is different. However, these examples give you a rough idea of what to expect:

  • Individual or parent coaching focused on developing strategies for dealing with a specific issue -- 2 - 3 appointments
  • Cognitive-behavioral treatment to develop new coping skills and behaviors -- 6 - 8 appointments

We believe that a short course of treatment focused on practical results works best for most clients.

You can always return for another short series of counseling sessions if you run into a new situation that presents new issues. For example, you may be dealing with daily stress perfectly well -- until layoff rumors or your wife's new medical issue starts churning your stomach.
