Anger Management Individual and Group Counseling Sessions:

Out-of-control anger leads to a pattern of negative behavior that can hurt your relationships, career, even your mental and physical health. This is a 12 week program that will help you unlearn the negative responses to anger and help you regain control. AMC does not try to keep you from feeling anger, but teach you how to express anger in a healthy, constructive way. We will help you to recognize early signs of anger, and teach you to take the necessary steps to relax and deal with situations in a positive way.
Anger Management Counseling can be done on an individual basis, with your spouse, or with other family members. Group sessions are also popular and allow you to see others coping with similar challenges and hear their personal stories of failures and successes.
Indicators for the need of an anger counseling course or group anger management therapy sessions include:
In order to receive completion certificate, participants must complete 12 week program, which includes 2 group sessions weekly and 1 weekly individual session.
Substance Abuse Counseling
Substance Abuse Counseling can be done on an individual and/or group level that will initiate the process of exploring the reasons an individual is using as well as help them begin to develop alternative coping strategies, ways of thinking and ultimately maintain a substance free life. SAC programs can include screening intake, orientation, assessment, individualized treatment plan, counseling, case management, crisis intervention and client/family education. SAC will allow individuals to share their feelings about using drugs and will be offered support and guidance through the process. During group counseling an individual will have an opportunity to hear from others who have been through similar situations, and it might help the person feel less alone. All SAC programs will incorporate education about how substances affect the mind and body and will commonly discuss the legal ramifications as well.
Substance Abuse Individual Therapy
Includes screening intake, orientation, assessment, Individualized treatment plan, counseling, case mgt, crisis intervention and client/family education.
There are distinct advantages of individual substance abuse counseling. First of all, there’s the important issue of privacy. If you don’t want to share your story with a group or are afraid that you could lose your job or children in the process, then individual therapy sessions will likely prove beneficial. Individual substance abuse sessions also mean that you have more time to work one-on-one. Also, because group sessions are more likely to lead people to put on masks and pretend, face-to-face and private sessions with a substance abuse therapist can often mean you get to dig down deeper into the issues and reasons that result in your escape to addictive substances. Additionally, if you feel too overwhelmed with your own problems to listen to others go on and on about their issues, individual therapy may offer greater results and participation on your part. Finally, you can arrange individual substance abuse recovery sessions around your calendar instead of adjusting your schedule in order to attend group sessions.
Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program
Group Programs Includes: screening intake, orientation, assessment, and client/family education.
SAIOP is a 12 week program that includes 16 group sessions held twice (2x) a week and 4 weeks of individual sessions that assists participants with transitioning into community based supports. Deciding which type of substance abuse counseling will work for those addicted are highly personal decisions and should be based upon specific need and circumstances. We understand individual sessions aren’t for everyone; What worked for your neighbor, or even your twin sister, might not work out the best for you. The benefits of group therapy for substance abuse are many. There’s also the fact that meeting with other people who are facing the same struggles that you are can offer a “big picture” view that broadens your perception and puts your own problems into a different perspective. Furthermore, listening to other people talk about their addiction can help you come to terms with the fact that there is more than one way to deal with an issue. If the way you’ve been doing things in the past has failed, there are other options to try in the future. Finally, group sessions add the benefit not only of encouragement, but accountability. Not only will you build new relationships with others who are in the same challenging position as you, the participants can keep an eye out on one another and provide strength and support when needed.
