Even in the best of times, personal problems and traumas can leave many of us feeling anxious or overwhelmed. For those suffering from alcoholism, drug addiction, or other mental health issues, they can be overwhelming. In many cases, talking to family and friends just isn’t enough. And often, people struggling with serious personal issues avoid sharing it with loved ones due to fear of being judged or misunderstood.
That’s why regular therapeutic counseling sessions are vital to recovery. Whether you’re dealing with addiction or are in recovery or you’re just facing difficult personal issues, having someone to talk to who understands what you're going through, who is unbiased and trained to help, is one of the most effective things you can do to recover.
How does it work?
At the Center for Recovering Families, you can schedule an appointment with one of our many compassionate and insightful therapists regardless of whether you've participated in our other programs or not. Depending on your preference and your counselor's opinion, you can come alone or have your family accompany you. To schedule an appointment, call 713.914.0556 or message us using the contact form.
Therapeutic counseling is provided at The Council’s Center for Recovering Families in a relaxed, secure environment. After an initial assessment, your therapist will recommend the appropriate services to help you explore past issues and current feelings, and identify potential stumbling blocks to recovery. In addition to one-on-one sessions with a therapist, you may also be recommended to participate in group therapy sessions, where you can share your experiences with peers. Therapeutic counseling can help you make positive behavior changes that increase self-awareness and self-esteem, leading to stronger relationships with family, friends, and coworkers.
