The compassionate and committed team at RHCS makes an effort to be at the forefront of addiction treatment and share new information with the community. As a client of Recovery Happens Counseling Services, you can count on receiving individualized and informed services from our clinicians.
We help our clients and their families understand the development and status of their relationship to intoxication.
Each session has a specific purpose in the structured process of guiding a substance abuser or addict toward recovery. It is recognized that almost all substance abusers begin treatment without the motivation to change. The first task of treatment is to help the drug user develop a greater recognition of the problem, and to support the growing motivation to change.
Experience shows that recovery will be long lasting only if changes continue to be made in several key areas in an persons life.
Such changes will necessitate a review of attitudes, feelings and behaviors. This is where the parents come in.
Building the family’s ability to support recovery
The Family Education Program is structured to help parents and guardians understand their crucial role in the recovery process. Participation in this part of the program is so essential that it is mandatory.
We also support and encourage parental awareness and growth through recommended readings and referrals to support groups in the community.
Our counselors have an extensive network with other care providers and are happy to work with families to find appropriate resources should there be a need for specialized services or a more intensive treatment program.
Any chemical use is potentially harmful. A person under the influence of mood altering substances has an impaired ability to make healthy decisions and their brain chemistry is being altered.
Substance abuse is an emotional illness. After a relationship with drugs or alcohol has developed, the ability to identify, express, and cope with emotions is damaged and their emotions become numbed and distorted.
Addiction is a biochemical disease. Addiction is a primary, chronic, progressive disease that has its roots in genetics, brain chemistry and attachment.
Substance abuse occurs in all kinds of families. Substance abuse crosses the lines of gender, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, and spiritual and religious beliefs.
Everyone in the family is effected by chemical abuse. Family members and others close to a person who is abusing chemicals are affected by the use and the consequences of that use.
Recovery requires support. Essential elements of recovery are lifestyle change and support.
All of the clinicians at RHCS share the same knowledge base and operate in the same structured treatment model.
