Ask a Professional

  • How do I know if it is the correct type of counseling?

    Generally, before you or your loved one begin any form of addiction counseling, you receive an assessment from a qualified professional. The assessment or evaluation aims to determine what counseling method is required.

  • Does counseling replace going to drug rehab?

    Not necessarily. Suppose you are a daily drug user; counseling will not solve your entire problem and cannot replace formal residential drug rehab. However, suppose you are a recreational drug user using once a month, then counseling may help your situation.

  • How do I know if I need group counseling or individual counseling?

    An assessment would help you or your loved one determine this. However, most people find significant benefits in group counseling because they can relate to other people with similar situations. Individual counseling is more intimate and addresses specific issues.

  • Are 12-step meetings considered counseling?

    Yes, 12-step facilitation is considered a form of group counseling. Attending 12-step meetings is beneficial for recovering addicts and their families.

  • What happens if I do not like my counselor?

    Usually, with the assessment, it is determined if the counselor is the right fit to address your individual needs. However, circumstances arise where you may begin to disagree with the direction the counseling is going. This is normal; have the discussion with your counselor and if you or your loved one feels it is best to move on, then make that decision.
